I'm Moving, by God!

Thursday, April 18, 2013

I can't let them get me down;
I've played their unconscious game too often;
it feeds on itself--
pleading with me not to change my course,
but to stay sedentary.
I cannot;
for life moves on/
it carries us toward the Sun;
skiing on the waters in the mind-ocean;
treading water makes one tired.
Freedom is skimming the waters' surface
on your faith;
holding on to your teachers--
you have to balance yourself.
One day...
you may even learn
to drive the boat.

    Love your poetry-in-prose...or prose-in-poetry...or perhaps better said, free verse! It expresses so elegantly, yet precisely, the challenges you are navigating!

YES, YOU'RE MOVING!!! And Nicole is own the danged boat -- isn't that good news!!!!!
P.S. When I saw the title of the blog, I thought it was going to focus on the good news of the FIFTEEN POUNDS that you've rid your beautiful body of.

    Treading water is not good enough. Thanks for posting what you've learned, and helping yourself and others.

    You own that boat. It is yours.
And you are moving forward, which is what matters most.
Follow that sun, with it's promise of a new tomorrow!
