Skating Poem S009

Mind over matter
Isn’t so hard when compared
To mind over mind

Notes to this poem…

Mind over matter is a very popular expression about mentally overcoming pain, and likely other physical challenges. But what about using your mind to overcome other products of your mind, like doubts, insecurity and all kinds of feelings that you really feel in your mind, not the metaphorical heart? From my life experiences, my own and that which I have observed in others, overcoming your own doubts and emotions is a lot harder than overcoming pain. That’s where I got this thought today skating on the Oval. 🙂

The S-series poems were composed while I was out skating on the Halifax Emera Skating Oval, to squeeze in writing time in a life that is always getting busier.
