When life throws you a curveball

you can tilt our head

be aware of how time slows down

watch and observe

the wind

notice the colours 

………..take your time

breath………… watch it come

don’t panic

stand your ground

spread your feet


slightly bend the knees

line the shoulders

look at it

show no fear

when life throws you a curveball

you must stand your ground

or you will shatter

like a glass on tiles

or a windshield upon impact

you must focus and plan your move

reacting will only deflect 

you must now 


when life throws you

a curveball

  1. Good advice, Tamaya, we would like to be that archer. Your description of an abrupt event, is very real for me. A few times in my life, I’ve had sudden shocks,


  2. I accidentally pressed the wrong button, sorry. I was going to add that I have noticed time really does seem to slow down. I think it’s because my body was flooded with adrenaline, and it was actually me who was speeding up. And as you say, it is better not to react immediately, but to choose your course of action wisely.
