Ermilia’s Picture it & write (Sunday 30th September 2012)
Once again, here is my offering to ‘Picture it & write’ hosted by Ermilia (Ermisenda and Eliabeth) who invite others to join them by writing a fictional story or poem to accompany an image presented on their blog.
(Listen while you read)
Does this mean I won’t be able to walk when I’m old?
Why oh why do I feel the urge to get myself in a tangle?
Why do I constantly engage in things that get me all twisted?
Why, when others are happy to be mediocre, do I think I have to go that extra mile?
Why, when everything is okay, do I try to make it not okay?
I’m always searching, and never finding. I’m always yearning, and never being satisfied.
Why do I do as I do?
I don’t know.
Is it because I’m an over-achiever?
Could it be that I push myself way too hard?
Is it better to be sane and under the radar, rather than seriously hyper and flying above?
Questions, and questions, and more questions.
I feel like a contortionist. I feel that I stretch and twist, and manoeuvre, and change every blessed thing about me. I try to fit. I try to be as everyone else.
I do wish I could be a little easier on myself.
I do wish I could just kick back, and relax.
Wow; wouldn’t that be nice? Wouldn’t that be pleasant to just kick back, and allow the day to go by?
Just kick back, and let it all happen.
Yeah; just kick back, and let all things roll off my shoulders. Let them fall. Yeah; let my shoulders fall.
Let my stomach rest.
Let my legs unwind.
Let them feel happy.
Yeah; wouldn’t that be nice to just ‘let go’, and relax. Ahhhhhhh.
