Life's a journey

Let life take you on a journey Take a chance and let go of every thing you know Follow the river to the sea Go look at the horizon Know what it is to be free Don't think about the journey ahead, just go Let the rain wash you Let the sun dry you The land will feed you Time is now and can't be changed The past has gone, the future will come Now's the time to hold the reigns Let your intuition guide you And your soul lead you Everything can be achieved You just have to believe Appreciate every sound to be heard And be aware of every smell Look with your eyes, feel with your hands Use your senses to the full And know of things you've never seen Don't be scared to travel, just follow the road You will know the way to go, when you're ready to know Let the wind fill your sails Let the breeze take you away Chase your dreams and you'll always find a means Date: 2017

This is sooo beautiful.. It's like you're describing my life a few years ago. So much beauty and magic and wonder, and the freedom you only get to really experience when you have the courage to let go of Life's reigns and trust it to take you wherever you're supposed to go.. Your poems are very inspiring, Stephen, I rarely come across poetry that touches me in such a deep, yet gentle way as yours does. You really are a verbal artist.. Which sounds so much less lovely than I'd like it to.. Haha.

Thank you for all your lovely comments Sarah and I'm glad you enjoyed the poems, I always hope that people will find their own imagery and meanings and understanding in my poems. I like to say...... "I am an artist of language, painting pictures with my words and encapsulating the emotions of our time." I think that's the poetic way of putting it anyway. Take care and thank you for connecting.
