when i write a poem

the words fall onto the page

but they don’t come from me

they come from my sage

my sage expresses emotion

so that i am forced to feel

and i share it with the world

because i want to be real

my sage wants to record

all that goes on in my mind

so i can read it back later

revisit my thoughts and feeling at a future time

my personal growth comes first

before what others may think

not to be taken personally

at least that’s what my sage says

wink wink 😉

** This poem was partially inspired by one of The Four Agreements,

2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
