Poem about Breaking Out Of a Rut

While reading my post on being trapped, I discovered that it is true.

I do feel trapped.  Not trapped by chains place on me by others.  No, I put the chains there myself.  I am in a rut.



I feel stuck in a rut

A new path must be cut

Do not know what is cure.

Need give thought, to be sure.


My interests infinite

Intentions definite

Cannot engage in all

Trying is cause of fall.


Too many dreams burning

They leave me still yearning

For some satisfaction

From completing action


First of all, must start search

On what branch want to perch

Not all actions will cure

This malaise I endure


Make a list, maybe will,

How to capture the thrill.

Check them off one by one

Start new list when all done
