Choosing Life and Operating Happiness

Dancing Tasks

I feel like I fail,
I disappoint myself.

Why do some things
Seem impossible to me?

I don’t know how to rest.
My contradictions put me
To a test.

My mind is like a shark,
It never sleeps.
My soul is like a dove,
Nesting brings it peace.

All my tasks
Make me want to hide.

They are not profound,
Their essence is bureaucratic.
Engaging in them almost
Feels traumatic.

Still while I perform them
I want to excel,
To succeed while
I do others well.

I want to spread positivity,
Instead I panic unwillingly.
My tasks are dancing
Through my mind,
They boogie and intertwine.

With all this dancing
I can’t relax.
I have so many,
Uncleared tasks.

How can I enjoy the sun,
How can my mind rest,
While there are
So many papers
Waiting on my desk?

I want to complete all my tasks
And feel a huge relief,
But they are never ending
And it brings me grief.

  1. My dear friend,

    Most of the reason why we feel we fail, we fear, we fall, is something in us that dicates us to accept or not to accept, to take things according to our wishes – and if something turns out not to be what we want – then we feel the reaction of it in us, within us – our mind reacts in downs in all kind of colours – the true reason for it is our ego and mind that are in control of our soul (it should be vise versa) – it is expectations, but expectations are doomed to be disappointed – we all surf on a wave of good and bad things, changing all the time, so we need something that is not changing – the warm sun rays that give its light to everyone not matter if he or she is good or bad – this is LOVE, unconditional love – if we grow into it we ourselves become this light of our inner Sun…

    All that is good for you, dear Tut Yashar 🙂
    Love and Light

    • The diversions from my ability to enjoy the sunny days led me to write the poem. I wish to be in such a place that I would have lasting unconditional love to all the things I now find tedious and hostile. First I have to have it towards myself.
      Thank you Didi for your lovely comments and all the blessings to you 😊😊💗

      • My dear Tut Yashar,

        Thank you so much 🙂

        Over time our understanding will grow, through good and bad experiences, and slowly we will shed the dress of impatience, of blaming, of judging others – then we will turn to ourselves and see the faults we see in others as our own faults like a mirror image. So if we reform ourselves, we can also achieve the great goal of unconditional love for all, for all of creation, without exception, because God dwells in all and we are a part of Him. Wouldn’t that be beautiful, to meet people, to approach each person with an open mind, selflessly, with great love? So let’s start as Gandhi said: “Be yourself the change you wish to see in this world”. That is the way of love and the way back to our true home is also only through the way of love.
        Hugs and love, my dear friend
