pride goeth before

so i tried to enjoy
an electronic-free day
that lasted all of
a half hour as
i read a real book
while sipping morning coffee

i am weak
but it’s not like
i don’t know
i’m weak
as proven by
every diet started
and failed
every plan diverted
every hope based
on tomorrows

yet wind still blows
moving this pin wheel
and i accept
my given nature
as flawed
yet consistent

…plenty of goals reached
and left to the wind

  1. I love your free flowing, honest approach of writing.
    I’ve been checking in because the way you write inspires me in many ways. šŸ™‚

    I feel very much the same way. I meant to take a break from all social media for a while but I ended up starting another WordPress blog instead.

    I have to admit.. it’s been quite a cathartic experience so far. Like another form of group therapy.

    Anyhow. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I look forward to reading more! šŸ™‚

    1. awwww thanks, sometimes is more or less a bit of talking to myself, but in other ways also addressing issues i’ve seen come up in group therapy sessions or in other writings. i think if it were all cut and dry, we’d be ‘perfect’ but not necessarily happy….
