Three Bad Guys – 1. Procrastination (Spoken Word)

They sneak in quietly

and interfere in our matters subtly.

They make our life rough

They make the going tough

They are the bad guys in our life

and the cause of our anguish and strife.

 

Who are they?

Let’s talk about them one by one.

Let’s see if they can be shunned.

 

The first one is – Procrastination.

Yes, that unexplained, persistent hesitation

with a baffling definition.

 

Procrastination is a horrible horrible guy

It curtails our . . .

The Plain Janes

Never underestimate

the plain Janes

Some of them are miraculous

Others are meticulous.

But for sure,

they are not ridiculous

And all of them are real,

not fake even an inch

Some of them are real and raw

like the unpolished diamonds

But diamonds are diamonds

Solid, Real and Intriguing

and others are pristine and true

like dark woods or

unfathomable seas

Deep, awesome and curious.

But for sure,

they are not phony,

no, not even an inch.

So,

don’t misunderstand the plain Janes.

 

 

 

Our Snail Connection (Full Poem)

Everyone needs that perfect protective shell,

Where we can live, breathe, grow and excel,

Without having the fear of the predator’s gaze

Where we can hide, retreat and rejuvenate.

 

Where we can shout, roar, giggle and wiggle

Be a dumb-head who fails to solve even a simple riddle

Without being conscious, like clown dwarfs,

Of those watchful eyes of hunter sharks

 

Yes, all of us need love, care and protection

Of that defensive shield which saves us

From the maddening, haggling, narcissistic rush

The egoistic  selfish materialistic slush

Underneath which, I can be me and you can be you.

The real ME and the real YOU
