Smooth Transitions

Feeling a bit on the outs

like, headlights, in the eyes of a fawn

It takes one hand to count

all the things that I can count on

I've compiled a list

anthologizing a plan

To sort out what it is

why I am - how I am

I need to establish my patterns

redirect the mis-cues

Thoughts and actions, discerned

proceeding with follow-through.

Becoming my solace

not the source of my guilt

Nobody is flawless

Clean up the milk that's been spilt

Begin to work through the issues

interrupting my smooth

Being selective on how I choose

what will be my next move

Cards on the table

my eye on the prize

Knowing I am more than able

to be what "smoothness" implies

    Fabulous poem :) Just remember not to be too hard on yourself. Smoothness is relative. I'm sure you are killin' it!

  • Kelli, you are so much better than smooth. You are strong & unflappable, weathering the roughest of storms & making it look easy, all while still being there for those who need you.
