Today I Was Stuck

Moving from ‘Stuck’ to ‘Unstuck’

We’ve all had days when we feel a little bit ‘stuck’ and I include myself here, after all we are only human.  It is possible for you to go from stuck to unstuck within moments and I believe the process for this is different for every person.  When I created the poem below I was feeling in a ‘stuck’ place, but by the time I had finished the poem, I had moved to unstuck…the answer came from within and when I was in ‘creative flow’. What will you do today to help you move from a feeling of being ‘stuck’ to ‘unstuck’? There is a way, there is always a way, silence your mind, open your heart and let the answers flow.  Much love to you, Clarabelle.

Today I Was Stuck
Moving from Stuck to Unstuck

Today I Was Stuck

It’s nearly midnight, and I’m lying in bed;

I think of my inaction, before I rest my head.

Today I was stuck, I didn’t play the game;

Life got the better of me, unleash this chain.

Many brick walls, are in my way;

Built up by me, getting higher each day.

I kick and I punch, the battle is in me;

I’m fighting myself, this I can see.

So what do I do, to turn this around?

Inside is the answer, this I have always found.

Let go of the fight, it’s not a war anymore;

Staring at these four walls, will not open the door.

Step outside, breathe in the air;

Replenish your spirit, feel the wind in your hair.

Dust yourself down, and put a smile on your face;

Slowly walk down the path, and gradually pick up the pace.

To master the mind, it not about control;

Release that desire, and you’ll discover your soul.

Silence is golden, connect to the now;

The answers will come, and then you’ll know how.

  1. Hello Clarabelle, this poem is quite appropriate for me and what I am going through right now. “Let go of the fight” (stressing about things instead of facing them), and the solution “breathe in the air” (have a break); “Replenish your spirit” (recharge) then “Inside is the answer, this I have always found” (work on a plan), and “The answers will come, and then you’ll know how” (choose to act on it and make it work). Thanks 🙂


    1. Wow, Elizabeth, I am speechless because the way you have interpreted the meaning of my poem is so truly amazing….and the best part is that I know your comment will help other people in a similar situation. I am so glad I shared this poem because sometimes it’s hard to put yourself out there and your true feelings but in order to help other people I must. Thank you so much for taking the time to share all of that. Much love to you Clarabelle – you will do it Elizabeth, I just know it!!
