In My Spare Time

Tell me what,

should I do,

in my spare time.

I am usually focused -

never anxious.

It feels like I can't,

make anything go together...

I mean rhyme.

So what do I do,

when there is nothing to do?

I read every book.

I fixed everything,

and I tightened every screw.

I need to work.

I despise the couch.

Anxiety keeps,

making me a grouch.

    It might not be your best piece but it's still pretty darn good. Something we can all associate with from time to time.

      Thank you my friend. I really appreciate that comment. That in itself is a real up-lifter. Again, your comment means alot.
      Persistence is key

      I fuss sometimes if I have not written at least something every day. But not to worry - it matures, develops, etc. Then we may write 1, 2 or 3 poems even, on other days.


      Thanks for sharing ZION ~ you raise an intersting point about time ! The Richest & the Poorest man on Earth gets the same time allocation every day ~ no more & no less and you cant BUY TIME ! Its what we do with those 24 hours each day that Counts ! As single Poeple not living @ HOME (Thank GOD for Mums & Dads !) ANGELA & I are masters of & responsible for our own DESTINIES ! We are both in mid-career so we have to work & study hard ! Im responsible for my own FLAT (UK) and Angela & Ruth responsible for theirs (NZ) it all takes time. To be an ACTIVE MEMBER of a Church takes time and any other Club or Society we belong too and Friends & Family all take time ! The bottom line for ANGELA & MYSELF is that if were honest in any DAY or WEEK recently ~ WE JUST DONT HAVE ANY SPARE TIME ~ AMEN ! Remember The DEVIL finds things for IDLE HANDS to DO !

      Blessings & Peace & Joy
      Love in the SPIRIT A & B 🧡🧡🧡🧡
