Oh, I am so talented,
And so many things I know
I can do this, I can do that
But the problem is - I don’t!
But it is not my fault, really.
This I swear. It is them!
Those two creatures that live here,
They’re the ones that bring this shame.
And I always struggle with them,
As one makes me work a lot.
Everything must be perfect,
And it is a waste if not.
Yet the other wicked creature,
Tells me how deprived she feels
Of all fun things, friends and laughter,
And how we waste all her skills.
So I argued, and I quarreled
Tried to get them out of sight,
But it never worked until I
Really listened to my heart.
And I finally understood
That they are a part of me
And since one must live with creatures,
Learn to live with them must he.
So instead of fighting with them
I began to learn their ways,
And I listened to their needs,
And what they both had to say.
Suddenly there was no quarrel
And I heard this nice, fair chat,
And I was so shocked how easily,
All my problems were worked out:
“Oh, I am so overwhelmed
With all the things that I must do.
Can you help me just a little?”
Said one creature. “Please, can you?”
“Yes, I can,” said the other,
“But when all the things are done,
Will you help me?” “Help with what?”
“With just having lots of fun.”
So when you have too much to do
And you don’t know where to start
Just sit down, and really listen,
To the creatures in your heart.
So I noticed my anger, accepted its rage, allowed it to speak up, wrote page after page...
