180 Degrees: Turning Point

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “180 Degrees.”

They say you’re connected to the entire world,

by just six degrees of separation.

In that case, what’s 180 degrees on views, decisions or acts?

Opening or closing oneself to possibilities?

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Do Not Disturb.”

Do not disturb.

Do not disturb.

Do not disturb.

Disturb me offline and you’ll find me online.

As for disturbing me online, well, that’s not that easy.

I can always switch off, block or simply unplug.

After all, the web is permission-based—mine.

Online privacy follows offline privacy.

If you respect one, you’ll respect the other.

Childhood Revisited: Ghosts Past

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Childhood Revisited.”

There are a lot of things I wish could be different,

But I know I can’t change a thing,

Let ghosts past be ghosts past,

The past cannot be changed,

And history is written by the victors.

It’s the present that ought to change,

Change to make a better future.

Baggage Check: Historic decision

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Baggage Check.”

Complicated histories,

Simple men and women and children.

That’s the story of each human’s life.

Decisions based on past experiences,

decisions that will affect our futures.

Seems imbecilic.

Yet, what’s that saying again,

“If you forget history, you are condemned to repeat it.”

Hell, I’m confused, perplexed, stupefied, paralyzed!

Mix Tape: Instrumental

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Mix Tape.”

The Man says he wants a mix tape,

A mix tape of my life, my future.

I guess I’ll go with instrumental,

To which I can rap out the lyrics of my life.

The Zone: Mind it

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Zone.”

Get lost!

Get lost as in immerse yourself, feel yourself,

enter the zone,

or as the new age gurus term it,

Practise mindfulness!

That’s the mantra.

Don’t do things in auto mode.

Just think about everything you do.

Right from tying your shoelaces to pushing the toilet seat up (or down).

Now, that’ll make your day.

Whew! Sounds exhausting!
