Letter U


under the influence
of too many self help books and sites
under pressure
to complete successive steps
under achiever
when those steps don't go as promised
under the microscope I place
all the doubts that come back
finally that the answers are
under my own skin


  1. Very good poem, MJ. It reminds me of the occasional argument I have with myself on whether too much self-help is bad for you! You're absolutely right, though, look within yourself for the answers :)

  2. Ugh - not you, the "self-help." Too many "gurus" out there - who might mean well - but at the end of the day, you have to go by your own inner compass!

    Another thoughtful poem! Good job! :)
