(Un)solve Life

Why do I always seem to perceive

Life as a problem to solve, why do I believe

That everything needs to be tackled head on

That life is a battle that needs to be won?


Does it stem from being a woman who needs

To prove herself in a world where men mostly lead

Is it a manifestation of feeling insecure

That I need to solve problems to be sure

I am on firm footing, I can be in control

I feel best when I am in an active role

Rather than being an observer passive

Somehow this is how I have learnt to live..


Lately I have been re-examining my approach

Why don’t I let events in life be as they are, unless they encroach

On my well-being or place me in danger imminent

To focus on solving a few problems should be my intent

Instead of fighting inconsequential battles here and there

I should try to fight for issues about which I care


Some things in life are just meant for experience

While others require problem-solving intense

As I go along my journey, I must learn to choose

My battles wisely, otherwise I stand to lose

My focus, peace of mind and satisfaction

Sometimes passivity is the best form of action..
