Writing Through Different Perspectives

I don’t have experience with losing someone to drugs or alcohol but I always have sympathy for those going through it. I had a 4 hour train ride and this is one poem I came up with.

Toxic Mess

So intoxicated, you’ve been like this for days yet

You find a way to say, you and tipsey have never met

I guess there is some truth to that it is usually a brief meeting I bet

The alcohol gets way over your head I fear daily I’ll find you stone cold dead

I understand you feel your life is a mess, but if you could take some time to free your emotions and just have rest

You’ll find that your soul knows you best. Although these times might appear dark. I’m pleading you to claim back your colourful heart. So we can find a new canvas to start

Patience, Self Mastering

The capacity to accept or tolerate delay, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious.

Patience is a skill that I am still learning and practicing. I can sometimes start something and not finish because I can be impatient at times. Patience is important, it is part of self mastering, it prepares us for great things to come. It challenges us to stop looking at the time. Time is precious and it is a powerful gift we all have been given. We have a start and we have an end. What we do in between is entirely up to us. We can do whatever we choose to do with our time. But patience, we don’t all have it. It takes mental strength and discipline. Patience allows us to be aware, enjoy the process of life. Inside every successful person is a patient individual.

Have patience everything is difficult before it is easy.

If you find yourself to be impatient, don’t focus on how long you have to wait. Focus on what you are going to do while you wait. You cannot manipulate time, but you can change your attitude towards it. The positive thing about delays or waiting is that it makes you more aware of time. The negative part is that waiting can cause annoyance, anger or anxiety. Take the precious time you have to be self aware. Accept the current situation or hard journey in your life and think of ways how you can make it a little bit better. Maybe change the way you feel about the situation and be content with it. That does require mental strength but that can be self taught. Anger and anxiety can take up a lot of your energy and a lot of your thoughts, and it does not have to be like that.

My Short Poem

Patience is a skill, an art of mental strength

It’s not an art we can see, but one we can experience

When I think patience, I think time

Time is precious, we all have a timeline

What makes us different is our journey from the start to finish

Impatience can make us consume negativity

We can’t change the lenghth of time we have to wait

But we can change the way we feel while we wait

Self awareness, acceptance and being content is the key

Stay Patient And Trust Your Journey
