We’re always told to think before doing anything. If possible, think twice.
But what if we don’t even know what we’re going to do? How does one think about it?
Like when we’re nervous, blurting out words without even knowing what we’re about to say next.
Like the social animal who knows just the right words to strike up a conversation without even knowing you.
Like the high ranking official on a podium who reacts to emerging situations without prior preparation.
We’ve all been in these situations. It happens in speech, as it does with other forms of expression – the artist, musician, actor, and writer within us reaches out by bypassing the neurological highway and surprising us.
Here is one of those moments when my thumbs tapped away without my knowledge:
The world spins around
Nothing makes sense
Inertia worsens this hell.
Leave. Move –
Before it’s too late
Or fall into your shell.
They say that the universe has a way of communicating with us. That the world sends messengers to guide us along the way.
Sometimes, the messanger is sitting right inside us.
