Eventually

Today is earlier than usual. 
It's not like any other days,
it's becoming a ritual.
Tasks at hand were once confusing; 
like riding the waves slowly, you're cautious to not make mistakes,
yet, you were falling. 

Eventually the ride gets easy.
Even when the water is raging,
you continue believing--
moving is breezy.
Relax your mind and your body will follow.
Allow your soul to take over,
release all the sorrow--
soak in all the positivity,
spirits, swallow. 

When things get crazy,
your vision gets hazy.
Just close your eyes, imagine a world where there are skies--
of no lies.
Where the ground is stable;
not shaken by any label.
Now open your eyes;
Do you see a world of disguise?
Capture that vision, now you realize.
The politics, views, the price of arguing--
the war, hunger, win a prize of suffering. 

Today is still early.
It's never too late.
When are you going to make a change?
Start by breathing, speaking--
let your message reverberate. 

You're getting used to the ride.
You're moving steadily--cruising. 
Skipping your steps, you don't mind bruising. 
Your journey extends through space--traversing. 

Eventually the ride gets easy.
Even when the water is raging,
you continue believing--
moving is breezy.
Relax your mind and your body will follow.
Allow your soul to take over,
release all the sorrow--
soak in all the positivity,
spirits, swallow.

    Jesson, perhaps we are all striving for the same thing. However each of us have a different way of getting there. "Relax your mind and your body will follow". Very nicely put and for some of us a lifetime to achieve. Allan

    Hi Allan! I really appreciate your thoughts on this poem. I agree that all of us don't follow the same route; we ultimately create our paths by what we choose to do, driven by our own motivations and aspirations. We all see the world through our own eyes; thus, different perspectives on life. It is definitely a life-long, learning experience. Being the first one to comment on this particular piece of mine, especially by someone who is a veteran here at Poetry Soup community, is truly an honor. *bows down* So, thank you Allan!
