In search of solutions..

I think of myself as someone

Who solves problems as they come

In to the issue at hand I immerse

Myself headlong, before things get worse

I want to find a workable solution

Using my knowledge, skills and intuition..

**

I used to think of all problems as simply

Challenges to be faced undauntedly

I thought problems would have solutions perfect

That could be found if one took the effort to inspect

All facets of a problem, like a mathematical equation

The solution would fit in neatly in its place of designation

**

I truly wonder how I held on to this warped view

For as long as I did, since it is definitely not true

That problems in life come with solutions tidy

Real world problems are multidimensional and messy

Entangled in a web of human emotions complicated

With variables whose values cannot be calculated

Reasoning sometimes does not work at all

As you get bombarded with multiple curveballs

**

To my scientific mind the realization that there might not be

Solutions to some problems caused consternation initially

Just existing in a crisis without being proactive

Guided by faith alone seemed rather primitive

When faced with such problems difficult to solve

At first I fought hard, it was my resolve

To do everything I could in my power to get through

I had no patience, my futile efforts worsened the situation too

Until I learnt that sometimes the best course of action

Is to wait for the storm to pass, in judicious inaction

Without exhausting emotional energy or resources

Simply believe in a higher power and submit to the forces..

**

Maybe the perfect solution does not exist in the imagined way

But eventually out of darkness emerges a new day
