going far away
been since yesterday
feels like I forgot
things I need a lot
heading on my way
nothing more to say
Multitasking One Thing at a Time
I am a multitasker, been so since my teens.
It was hard at first, but waitress must-have it seems.
This talent came in handy, when job later changed,
Did not ask, juggled tasks, no matter how arranged.
One day I got married and had a kid, then two.
Working still, running the house, much I had to do.
Now you’d think this talent would make me supermom,
But that’s not how it works, at everything I’d bomb.
If you have multitasked, you may know what I mean
When there is too much to do, time turns very lean.
I had to make a change, or rest I’d never get
I stopped trying so hard, and now no longer fret.
I still will multitask, but do them one by one.
Now can even enjoy time set aside for fun.
It’s still a bit hard to focus on just one thing
But when I do, yahoo, to peace and calm I cling.

Embers of Passion
embers burning, deep inside
embers burn, fire must hide
gurgling like hot lava deep
find a way, passion to keep
feelings tied up, they’re not free
pressures pressing upon me
care too much, must learn to cope
dousing truth’s embers with hope
Turn off news. don’t like to hear!
Fate of this world I hold dear.
Terrible news drives me mad!
Do not focus, on the bad.
hope facade, but feelings true
can’t control what others do
learn to cope, be in control
fire burning, play a role
proactively setting course
above reproach, no remorse
work hard, keep embers alive
control environs I strive
Do not tell me what to do.
How I should act, who are you?
Don’t criticize my actions.
Look at own imperfections.
above reproach, actions take
a life of perfections make
not because I am so great
but for rebukes to abate
passions bound, will not set free
learned to cope with being me
care too much, need close my eyes
hiding where fantasm lies.
