REMINDER ...

i am not powerless over my attitude nor over responsibility

i have the power to exert influence on myself and others as well

day to day frustrations are most evident

it can be tough to reach out with an attentive ear

compulsive thoughts push me closer to the edge

i have no recourse except to surrender

everyday i stand at a turning points

my thoughts and actions can propel me toward growth or down a road of old habits

sometimes turning points can be beginnings

i decide to praise instead of condemn when i'm in the right state of mind

sometimes my character defects appear on a daily basis

i need to realize i am human and not perfect and regain an inner peace of mind

i get inclined to stay blind and push toward escape

i experience overwhelming guilt and feelings of regret

self centeredness and dishonesty stem from the way i was living

i have the choice between good and evil and serenity and fear

i need to chamge my attitude and actions ever so slightly

slowly i'm becoming comfortable in my own skin

i hope to awake tomorrow with gratitiude and happiness

    Hi Brandy, this poem read like a prayer... the thing I love about this poem/prayer the most; is there is no mention of God; or any other redemption other than your own.... its a remarkable poem Brandy. You should get yourself published.
