Journalizing Time 1 – Abiding My Time

In your journal, write about all the stuff you don’t like to feel and what causes you to feel that way.  Don’t worry if your thoughts are scattered.  We always start with scattered thoughts.  Just write about it.  Get it off your chest, then lie back on your bed and gently be, as if these bad feelings did not now exist.

Now read the previous poem again before you go on (posted – No More Gloom) .  Please don’t rush through this.  Take your time.  Never rush through anything.  For if you do, you won’t provide your feelings time to develop along a path that’s right for you.

Hint:  In ‘No More Gloom’, by ‘…room you cannot see…’, I mean one’s body for you can’t see inside it.

If you feel like adding more to what you have already written, it would be a good time to do it now.  When finished and when ready, add more to your journal.  Then, come back to this post and take your time reading the next poem slowly with feeling.

Drawing by the late Karen Lee Chow (1955-2017)

Abiding My Time

There is a need for abiding my time
The way of it I will tell in this rhyme
No moment of time is ever wasted
For through time all feelings must be tasted
Some times are hours in which I ponder
Within them my thoughts begin to wander
At such times of my self I am in search
Then on a pathway to knowing I perch
Within moments my feelings betray all
My heart then opens to total recall
At that I grow along with the moment
Soul and spirit is then in alignment
From now on I will give myself the space
That toward vast changes I will not race
Then I will avoid a lot of mistakes
For my heart is delicate and it breaks
Love and wisdom I will then gain with ease
So I’ll be happy doing what I please

    Some of the narrational wording is changed to adapt to a blog (vs a book), but all the poetry is exactly as published and copyrighted in Karen’s book.
