what ignites my curiosity

gets me motivated to create

 

what lessens my inhibitions

what adds to my renditions

 

what arouses my mojo

stimulates my very soul

 

am I open minded

or closed tight shut

 

black and white

or varying shades of grey

 

am I up for debate

or avoid any confrontation

 

do I think things through

or react spontaneously

 

am I a lover or a fighter

do I get agro or go quiet

 

how will others remember me

when I’ve moved on

 

will it be with relief or smiles

with fondness or beguile

 

what impact have I made

soft traces or sharp indents

 

do I reflect on how the day went

or blunder on with no retrospect

 

what triggers my emotions

do I indulge too many potions

 

do I really know myself

or avoid time alone

 

always seeking stimulation

or ready for contemplation

 

have I got a five year plan

or meander aimlessly through life

 

what are my core values

my aims for this life

 

how do I cope with strife

strengthen my resilience

 

ticking off my bucket list

or wasting time being psst

 

we all have endless choices

or making none is delaying

 

just what am I conveying

with the life I live

the company I keep

the way I spend your time

 

try pausing and answering

some of the above

 

know forgiveness and deep love

keep worthy friends, drop all ‘isms

 

superficiality and commercialism

are just more distractions

 

lulling me into further infractions

know what I’m are here for

 

help all who come my way

to ensure a meaningful stay
