the pendulum sways
side to side
I wonder, have you gone clockwise through life
a destination held firm, from visions that you
had seen or from what you have learned
the seconds of the clock slowly passing time
regimented ~ telling when to step, to place one
foot and then the other, the goals, the dreams
a life mapped, ideas of when and how and what
or perhaps you drifted, when unexpectedly
an event threw the equilibrium ~
I'd throw a life line, to drag you back
to what you had foreseen, tell you to hang on
tight ~ or is this the place you'd rather be
life throws curve balls, what we envisaged it to be
uproots itself from the plans we had, makes us lost
and insecure, yet we want grounding do we not
not to be swayed, no glitches that lead a different path
or do we say to hell with it, let the dice roll as they may
my feet are grounded, though at times I may
stagger or be challenged in some way
I want my feet on terra firma, on the road I choose
right now and if a ‘jack in the box’ should appear
then that’s my destiny and I shall face head on for
I do not wish to stray into the anti-clockwise of my life
Wow Rm some deep stuff in this one……’the anti-clockwise of my life’ I like this image….profound my dear.
Thank you – I was in the middle of voice recording when your comments came in 🙂 But yes a ‘deep’ mood I am in.
there has been an almost kaleidoscope of moods eminating from your place this week, one wonders what mood will strike you tomorrow??
I am up and down and all over the place from one day to the next..who will know indeed 🙂
Jenny, a very well thought out and executed poem/prose. Really thoughts to think about today. >KB
KB I am glad you feel this way about it. I have voice recorded, though your computer does not allow you to hear. In a way – I was thinking of you when I penned this.
To tell you the truth I thought there might be something to it. Thank you sincerely. >KB
if it helps – I have achieved – just a thought or two to go through the day on *smiles*
It helps. It really does. Smiles!!! >KB
I hope in a good way – thank you KB
Hang in there and I hope you are excepted so you can once again make money doing something you LOVE. Then you will have lots of BRIGHT DAYS you know SUNNY!!!!
Yes, I hopefully will, I guess I wrote this for anyone who has had a direction only for it to be taken away, but the trick is to keep looking forward and never backward. Thanks E. xx
Yes I am on the path heading THAT WAY 🙂
Glad to hear it too 😀 x
Comparing paths to clockwise and anticlockwise, brilliant! I loved it!
funny how things get into your head isn’t it and then we travel on with thoughts (that hopefully make sense) – thank you very much as usual my sweet for your kindness 😀 xx
