Some days, I am tired of everything,
nothing in particular, yet anything,
routines of morning and evening,
tasks in general and during.
What should I do?
change my thinking or my to-do.
may be, I will need to do both,
thoughts and actions to move forth.
Feelings are important to set the stage,
but doing is what will open the cage.
I will begin with positive thinking,
follow up with actions to stop sinking,
Both will have to come together to my rescue,
mind and matter connection is not new,
one cannot be used for another in lieu,
each has a place on the human life pew.
Rich thoughts without actions are empty,
and actions bereft of feelings are not plenty.
both will have to join hands,
to help me reach new lands.
