In Slow Motion

Elfje:

hurry

run fast

with head down

no place to go

emotions

Haiku:

.

the hummingbird flits

in slow motion it’s still fast

summers brilliant gem

Poem:

.

I still know no better
errors, screw-ups and mistakes
nickname was the flake
never needed an abettor

a Higher Power was my protector
should have died a couple of times
never caught doing the crimes
could never pass the lie detector

today is a new way of thinking
before the act understand the consequences
before the bet take care of the expenses
it all begins with no more drinking

thoughts and actions guided by God’s will
faith that I’m protected by  fairy godmothers
finding the most satisfaction helping others
working for dreams and wishes to fulfill

life, as always, a matter of choices
learning that there are another options
seeking out the most enjoyable actions
finding pleasure in listening to the voices

hopefully, today, that voice will be yours.

ME and the Boss
