After Shocks are After Thoughts II

After Shocks are After Thoughts II

the tremor, the quiver, the uncontrollable shakes
are they after shocks or a full blown earth quake?
and what is their source, what is their cause
let us explore this, let’s take a pause

the pause is the answer, to enter the gap
we find in the stillness the journey is a map
a map from the source thru all the dimensions
and the challenges met can hold time in suspension

did i do that? a memory from the past
memories can be permanent, a stain that can last
and as they’re relived, their essence is sieved
causing worry and stress, anxiety to address

when something just happens a journey to the map tracks and ends
where a similarity is marked, a reaction state is embarked
from the point of past stimulation
it’s a difficult equation

so if the after shocks come from after thoughts
how can we help here?
this is the conundrum and the solution will come
simply erase or replace with a new story
being creative and having fun

(we used to investigate and compare
with this past way we are done)

patience is a virtue
let it all unfold
be patient, have courage
be both curious and bold
