“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.
