Slippery Slope


My mind is slanted

Any drop of idea

Runs deftly to the edge

A suicidal plunge

Falling and failing

Just a stain

Left far below


One chasing the next

Adhesion perplexed


Becomes master

Random disaster

Nothing sticks

Yet stuck I am


Am I tired

Or uninspired

Have I given

Is cupboard bare

Or am I just

Out of balance

And unaware

    I think we all go through those times of imbalance – life is an up and down event

  2. Excellent questions you have posed yourself a most brilliant bit of introspection. Good work my friend!

    Both, perhaps. Try falling to the other side of the leaf.
