More Congenial

I want to be better

More friendly

More open

More kind

I want to be consistent

Disciplined

Organized

Life is messy

Waves of distractions

Knock me from my feet

I tumble over opportunities

Choosing heart over plans

Meeting needs with disregard for

The outline

The bullet points

The lists

Crumple the paper and start again

I am hung upside down

Shaken

Coins drop from my pockets

I lost a boot

Twenty times I almost got it done

Almost

Almost

I write a list of the things I did

I burn it rather than share it

Flames rise from the actions

Which take place in the dark

The left hand doesn’t even know

The right hand exists

So much I never say

The avalanche clears it away

I check in with my heart

What to do today
