Poetry challenge: Free verse.
Why choose to return?
When life allows our world to blossom a fresh new morning
how is it our minds always ask for …
Resolutions are so over-rated,
for when we do finally get the answers to all of our
are we really that satisfied?
Don’t we cry for more?
Maybe not publicly
but when is the last time you took care of business
and didn’t think what if …
Maybe that is the simple solution
we are always going to wonder.
And the beauty of speculation
creates the moments we rise above our trauma.
And the beauty of delight
allows our lives to decide upon different paths,
trails that tracking seemed unreachable;
The reckoning drives us further,
helps the seeking to be granted confidence
to restore ideals that once might have stifled
Love the world quiet souls are living dreams in today
While tomorrow’s cadence hasn’t yet a grasp on your day.
