“THE RELATIONSHIP BAROMETER!” a poem May 22, 2019 [Wednesday]
Arguing with others – OR arguing with self! We-call-such-a-thing: DE-BATING!
‘R’-you-gettin’-scared-with-The-Pace? or-the-fut’re-o’-this-Race? So, you-might-be:
Looking for FLAWS, or-fine-print-in-a-clause? These-can-contribute-t’: BE-RATING!
And, at the end of the day, was it happy or sad? It-depends-on how you’re-RELATING!
Just-remember: They’re-[all]-“SPARKS!” Sparks, you-might-spy!
Oh, yes! They-are-REAL!? in-a-par-ticular*-way,
But-ONLY-if-you o-pen your-“little-I’s”** to-day!
And-what-you-goin’-do, if you feel up-set?
Well, I’m-sure-you-all-know how-to-ease-up-THE FRET!?
IF-you-choose to-en-gage ANOTHER FINE DAY,
CAN-IT-BE-up-to-you, what you chose IN THE NOW?
Can’t you say: “Yes!”-or-No!” depending-on-how,
You-feel-’bout-your-RELATION to-the-next-thing “in store?”
OF THE SAME SORT OF THING YOU-DID-DO YES-TER-DAY!?
CLOSE YOUR EYES, TAKE A BREATH – and please PAUSE, AS YOU PRAY!
[Prayer:] “The Earth seems to spin and the Sun seems to shine,
And the people around me – are doing JUST FINE,
Seeking, pursuing – and-worry-ing, non-stop,
About how their lives are-a-SUCESS-or-a-FLOP!”
SUCCESS (def.) perhaps-for-YOU can-be: an-easy, fluid flow! (pause)
IT can be FAST! whee-ee! or – IT can be SLOW! 🙂 – Whew!
A little of THAT! or-of-THIS you-can-do!
There’s a whole lot of stuff you can think others know;
What’s-“good”-or-“bad”-FOR-you! BUT – RELATIONS MIGHT GO,
In a “dif-ferent-way,” IF – YOU’RE EASY “IN-SIDE!”
DECIDE-WHAT’S-HAPPY FOR-YOU, as you ride on “your?” ride!
It’s-worth-a-TRY! RELATING – in-a-slow, Southern style!
Just CHECK WITH YOUR FACE! Is-there-a-FROWN? or-a-SMILE! 🙂
* – MAYBE they are particles! maybe rays! maybe neither, since they may not exist at all, in a sense, just like you!! “Remember! I DO NOT KNOW of what I say!” T.M.P.
** – Those “items” interested “psychologists” call egos (personalities) or false selves!
