WHEN PROBLEMS SEEM TO LIE AHEAD

[Picture: Mc Escher]

“When problems seem to lie ahead
Don’t rush forward to meet them

As if they’re long-lost friends

Let them lie there, let them wait.
Let them sleep until it’s time to meet

 

Then give them due attention

Resolve them as best you can

Then go on your way, leaving them there

Without ever looking back..
Or even when the appointment comes,

You might find yourself waiting, waiting, waiting

Until you realised you’ve been tricked

That there was never a problem and there’s nothing here

Except a long thin shadow, cast by your thoughts.
