Energy diluted for a petty shell, sized for laws manacles.
Metaphors distract from aerial thoughts, the life examined is light
reflected from space. What we live is just an acceptance of phrases to
force a response.
Loving someone enough to clip their wings instead of beings forced to take
down in flight.
Make me whole, I scream to the fragments of myself, what is left of the
bits I gave as totems to ward or balm for healing.
Seasonal thoughts feel hollow.
Make me happy, I think to what compels me to go.
This feeling that reflects my self-loathing, star dust recognizes itself.
I drown on foreign sands.
Dotted with languages absent of colonization.
They take me.
He can’t hear it from the cheers. Masturbating to the sound of steps imposing order to nothing.
What I learn before the smell of sap overpowers the sound of my screams; the pain expected holds no interest unless there is a witness to be gratified by it.
Six simple rituals for more winning:
1. Drink a glass of water when you wake up: Your body loses water while you sleep, so you’re naturally dehydrated in the morning. A glass of water when you wake helps start your day fresh.
2. Define your top 3: Every morning ask yourself, “What are the top three most important tasks that I will complete today?” Prioritizes your day accordingly and don’t sleep until the Top 3 are complete.
3. The 50/10 Rule: Solo-task and do more faster by working in 50/10 increments. Use a timer to work for 50 minutes on only one important task with 10 minute breaks in between. Spend your 10 minutes getting away from your desk, going outside, calling friends, meditating, or grabbing a glass of water.
4. Move and sweat daily: Regular movement keeps us healthy and alert. It boosts energy and mood, and relieves stress.
5. Express gratitude: Gratitude fosters happiness. Each morning, think of at least five things you’re thankful for. In times of stress, pause and reflect on these things.
6. Reflect daily: Bring closure to your day through 10 minutes of reflection. Asks yourself, “What went well?” and “What needs improvement?””
