Pause for Reflection..

Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences, and failing to achieve anything useful.

Margaret J. Wheatley

I held up the mirror before me one day

To understand what it might have to say

To see me hurtling through life as though

I were a river that needed to flow..

Propelled by a needless sense of urgency

Treating time like valuable currency..

The reflection that my mirror revealed

Brought out the demons I had concealed

The insecurities that I had buried inside

The anxiety that I had tried to hide

Reappeared in the form of my reflection

There was this time no scope for deflection

Left with no option, alone with my tears

I acknowledged, for the first time in many years

There were problems deep-seated in need

Of being addressed, and resolved, indeed..


That was some moons ago, and now

Every so often myself I allow

To take a hard look at my reflection

Learn some lessons from introspection

Rethink, rejuvenate, re-strategize

Let some evils exorcize..
