Write, in your journal about the good times you missed in life, because you rushed.
Write, about the good feelings you could have dwelled on but didn’t last, because you were in a hurry. Then make a promise to yourself that you will not do that again.
You will live life to the fullest by taking your time. Take the time to read this poetry, over and over, until you fully understand it and relate to it.
Now you may go on. Remember; take your time.
We all have two sides to us from which we can feel. Psychologists use to think we have split personalities. How scary. You don’t have to go through that fear, because there are two sides to everyone, because that is our make-up.
Just like we have two sides to our brain. One deals more from emotions, soul. Then one comes more from discernment, ego. As you read this material you may find yourself switching back and forth. Especially allow the experience of doing just that with these ‘voice’ poems.
If you get confused, stop and begin again, until some clarity comes through to you.
