High Horses And Hurdles

(I feel a tautogram coming…);

Part of the ‘trouble’ is,
I simply have dual aims in writingβ€”

The original, sometimes most self-important side,
Simply wants to write its heart out,
And share thoughts about mental health and personal experiences,
Hopefully with the side-effect of helping others as well as itself,

And the other side,
Will always be a show-off and just loves making people laugh (including itself!)β€”
It’s addictive, and gives it a dopamine boost,
And is only healthy for those others too;

Usually the two sides live in harmony,
And are kept within moderation,
Even, perhaps,
With some healthy competition,
But occasionally one gets on a horse slightly too high,
Causing the other horse to stumble on hurdles designed for the average horse.

πŸ˜…

You know what they say…
‘Nice guys finish last’,
And,
What they whinny and neigh…
‘Humble horses always stumble!’.
