when baffled...

Why’s that we get hassled, too easily,
When we’re in some kind of trouble?
Why can’t we look beyond
When we’re faced by a hurdle?
Perhaps, we’re standing too close,
To the unsolved jigsaw puzzle.
Overshadowed by the fear of losing,
We don’t even risk moving ahead.
It’s ok to take a few steps back.
To get the clear, big picture.
Now, leap not until you’ve taken a moment,
And given the next step a deep thought.
Cos it doesn’t really take a bullet to burst a bubble.

Bravo! You say it right when you say that it requires though, and stepping back to view the entirety before you actually act!!

Great post, as usual!

When i started reading, till i read these lines :

Why’s that we get hassled, too easily,
When we’re in some kind of trouble?
Why can’t we look beyond
When we’re faced by a hurdle?
Perhaps, we’re standing too close,
To the unsolved jigsaw puzzle.

it was in rhyme ... nad i read it in rythm .. then suddenly the rhyme ended ... and i had to read again the whole poem to make a new flow .... after saying all this, i must compliment you for the simple yet inspiring thoughts :)

I see the scribble starts as a continuation of the title?

I read this 3 times over and discovered new things about it each time. I don't know which to appreciate more - your wordplay or the message.

Lovely!
