Left and Right
Overflowing thoughts and ideas; emptying…not much left;
Must rejuvenate and refresh; make the trickle, flow right.
I always enjoy writing, until absolutely nothing is left;
Whenever all things seem wrong, it makes everything all right.
Tired body; confused thoughts; pervading chaos right and left;
Relaxed by soothing literary release; shifting my vibes right.
Long day; stressful situations; energy low: nothing left;
Body willing, mind weak: on the march, left, right; left, right.
This the daily grind: dawn, till dusk, until no energy is left;
No! Not all play, and not all work: balanced activity is right.
Now that I’ve almost completed my work-day, nothing much left;
Need to shower, then rock back – make the music and feeling right.
Packing my ‘Georgie bundle,’ the clock is at 5 and to the left;
Heading home to rest and rejuvenate – going to make myself right.
