How Do You Get from A to Z – A Poem by Darlene Wiggers

Survival of the fittest

Or Strength in numbers

Faith or logic

Passion

Pushed or pulled

In Darkness or Light

Resistance or free-flowing

Cohesion

Excuses, procrastination, at the last minutem is for makeithappen

Guidance, encouragement, a direction

With a plan, or play it by ear

On a wing and a prayer

Proactively, reactively

Risks, regrets

With a bang or a whimper

In leaps and bounds, at a snail’s pacemisfor

Fight or flight

Do you wait for things to happen to you?

Or do you purposefully make them happen?

No, you can’t = Yes, I will

Money and power

Love and supportmake it happen

Faith and gratitude

Music, nature

Family and friends

Hustle and bustle

Stress, Anxiety

Lies or Integrity

Emotions that drive you

-Fear, anger, joy, love

Who you know, what you know

Strange coincidences

By chance, an accident

A slippery slope

An act of God

Is it fate or free will?

How Do You Get from A to Z

Perspectives, Perceptions, and Expectations

Perspectives, Perceptions, and Expectations – A Poem by Darlene Wiggers

There are three sides to every story:

Your side,

Their side,

And somewhere in the middle is the truth.

So don’t judge.

You don’t have all the facts.

You don’t know where people have been,

Or where they’re at now.

And on top of that,

Each person’s nature is different:

They may like to talk, they may like to keep to themselves.

They may be more sensitive, or less sensitive than you.

They may be stronger, or weaker than you…

You can apply a spectrum to anything,

And where you lay on it will be different from someone else.

So don’t judge.

Some people judge far too easily and are not very forgiving.

Before you complain about someone else’s faults, take a good look at your own.

Each person has many layers.

And even if someone wears their heart on their sleeve,

You still don’t see it all.

At that moment, they may be strong enough,

And they may be selective in what they choose to reveal.

Someone could be really hurting, and you may not have a clue.

Set high expectations and rise – good words to live by

And usually works.

But sometimes not.

So be prepared to make adjustments.

You may need to lower expectations.

Don’t be so hard on yourself, or others.

You may expect yourself or others to act in a certain way,

Be in a certain place,

Do the appropriate thing –

But maybe that’s not possible at this time.

You may be ready, but at that time others may not be.

Maybe they can’t put on a strong face at that moment.

Maybe they can’t be there for you because they need to be there for themselves.

So give yourself or them a pass, and let it go.

Even if you don’t understand, even if it doesn’t make sense –

Because you don’t really know the whole truth.

I have always liked poetry, both the reading of it and the writing of it. Here is one written by my younger self, at age 18.

 

The Pond of Everlasting Hope – a poem by Darlene Novak

In the back of the yard

Exists a pond, a man-made pond.IMG_0473

And in the summer

The pond was alive;

Flowers in bloomIMG_0581

Birds in tune

And the fish – yes – the goldfish

– So many together

So bound, forever

 

And then autumn fell

And the flowers were gone.

The birds, they too, flew away.

IMG_0252

Honk! Honk!

The goldfish removed

To an indoor pond

To safety, to warmth

But a temporary home

All of them secure

To carry on the tradition.

 

All of them? – No, not all,

All, except two

Two which could not have been caught.

Two which would not be caught.

Although it was tried again and again

The two remained in the pond.

All said, they would dieIMG_0860

All said, they would not – make it.

But the two remained in the pond.

 

Some time has passed since that autumn day

And many cold days have come

Some rain has fallen

And snow has stormed

Hiding the pond from all’s view

IMG_1064

So many footprints!

All are fine, though rain still falls

The two are still in the pond

-Presumably dead, though no one will know

Until the breaking of ice.

 

The time has come

For the sun to shine.

The ice is beginning to melt

Slowly, though,

The process takes time

But through warmth, it will become clear.

The birds have returned; the flowers in bloom

Through faith, the two have survived

And one day soon, the others will join them.

God has brought them new life.
