There are times that all my ‘stuff’

just seems like a load of guff.

Problems that are always there,

forcing me to stop and stare.


I focus on the negatives

and veer away from positives.

‘Stuff’ is like a problem-fest,

sent to put me to the test.


It comes back time and time again

to twist my mind and tease my brain.

‘Stuff’s’ like a vortex I have found,

it sucks me in and spins me round.


It seems that with this ‘stuff’ of mine,

triggers are set at very-fine.

‘Stuff’ winds me up like tightened spring

to be set off by anything.


I know it doesn’t take a lot

for ‘stuff’ to make me lose the plot.

Then I will start to feel some guilt

that in my mind this ‘stuff’ has built.


But now I think I’ve had enough

of all that nasty, toxic ‘stuff’.

I’d like to get my life arranged,

so I can get that ‘stuff’ all changed.


I want to get so I can live

with ‘stuff’ that is more positive.

Out with the old, in with the new,

I’ll change the things I think and do.


I’ll try to be more introspect

and get myself some self-respect.

If I can only stay this way,

more of my ‘stuff’ will be okay.
