Te kort schieten is in part
onmogelijk, te lang, te hard
onnodig hoog gebuk.

Ik kan niet meer doen dan wat ik kan.

Dan ligt het niet aan mij in se
eerder het samen passen van ons twee.
En rond gaatje waar een cilinder door moet maar we hebben geen cilinders meer.

Stop met duwen en stretchen.

Wat gaat het er naar aan toe.
Het maakt zelfs niet meer uit
wat ik morgenochtend doe
met mijn rood gelopen snuit.

Ik voel zwartgalligheid van mensen
die missen wat *** emoties wensen.
Ze weten niet waarheen te gaan
met die frons, die lach, die traan.

Ze zijn niet dom of soms,
altijd ongelukkig, nukkig,
klagend om iets stoms.

Niemand kan ze helpen want
ze willen niet geholpen.
In stilte kijk ik naar mezelf
en wacht ik op die mand

om door te vallen.
Ze zijn zoals het vuur wanneer je op vakantie bent vertrokken...

Altijd staan ze nog aan.

The short, the longing,
the waiting for belonging.
Wanting to, what no-o-
ne possibly can know.

Just sleep, just work,
just kiss, just smirk.
Don't judge, don't speed,
at times follow, others lead.

Listen. You can do what you feel is right.
All else, above, below, is beyond your might.
There is no one answer to life.
Go to bed in time,
wake up in time,
eat healthy,
move, talk, slow down, walk.
Create your roll to fill.
And try not to spill.
Goodbye and good luck :)

Grab your gripe.
Inspect its type.
Is it small enough to not need
any way around it?
Is it big enough to down your mood?

Bend the thought to see the good
that's hiding in between the lines.

Road works ahead?
A walk just might refresh your head.

Caught a flu?
A break from work
could revitalize you.

Stuck behind a slow chauffeur?
Driving slow is less expensive.

Try your own as research has shown:
bending the small affects almost all.
I tried to make a poem about an exercise I give to my patients. Because gripes add up to bring you down if you let them. Keep practicing and drive your attention to things you're thankful for.

I was hoping
I'd be slaying
bears for gold
at twenty-six years old.

I'm still playing cardboard
swords on socks with stubs and
watching cartoons on saturday,
mourning.

You told me we'd be able
to do anything, no fear.
With heads on kitchen tables,
we all just want to disappear.
I'm hardly helping anyone right now.

You've cleaned your room twice
and arranged every knickknack.
The endless catching of mice
won't **** you the wolf pack.
Prioritize

If everyone took
a look at themselves
we wouldn't need bother
to judge one another.
There are some advantages to judging others and looking at their mistakes or your own. But these advantages are not enough to solve the mistakes and not worth the potential misconceptions. Be cautious when judging others, when is it going too far, when should I stop and look at myself. What can I change for the better? Then try, at least, to change that. That is our (my) responsibility, to be introspective.
