What’s Eating You

img_1334

No matter how tall you might be

No matter how strong your limbs

Or beautiful your foliage

What’s eating at your core

Can bring you down

**

Unwelcome changes come

When we internalize what’s eating us

Time for a change of attitude

Live life positively

Today at d’Verse, De Jackson asked us to consider change and write a Quadrille of 44 words.  I have a large beautiful maple in my back yard that I discovered is being eaten by termites. It won’t be very long until a big wind comes along and takes it down. The same is true with us as well. This is my Quadrille about changing our way of thinking to live longer!

  1. I love these wise words, and have always been a proponent of “we are what we think”, and “what you see is what you get”. I don’t like negative knocking at my door! Your metaphor is persuasive!
