Written as a Facebook Note, March 8, 2012.
Each time I see her, the picture is the same.
I am told all the time to look in a different direction, but nothing changes.
Sometimes I see grey, black, brown, and clear, but never anything worth staring at.
Occasionally the surface is rocky, leveled, paved, and sometimes shallow.
The echo in my head keeps telling me that the glass will always be half empty.
However, I remember what my mother tells me repeatedly – your posture tells the story.
Yet, each time I change my posture, I revert back to my ole ways.
I begin to reflect on how time is clicking away, and I cannot seem to reflect on what I just accomplished.
My lack of concentration is due to overwhelming distractions and the hastily interference that is abrupt.
Anything to steer my focus away from what I could have accomplished some time ago.
But something keeps bringing me back to full circle.
Uh oh, I hear the echo in my head again.
But it is not until I trip that I begin to realize that things are clearer if I ONLY hold my head up.
