Continue - A poem for those who need it
I wrote this poem when I felt that I did not have enough time to accomplish everything, during a cascade of doubt and for moments when I silently worried that I had missed the mark or was simply not enough.
If this finds you wondering such thoughts, please be inspired to continue on your journey to greatness, whatever that may be.
Sand and silt, grind and fleeting
Soft as silk, lush and repeating
Day to day
To be quiet, be still
To close your eyes
Life is finite, time is not forever
Shout and search
Continue and push
Open your eyes...OPEN YOUR EYES
Feel with more than your hands
Make haste with the sand that slides past your fingers
Love, make love and love some more
Oh life of mine like sand and silt
I grind for what? And where do you flee?
Soft as silk are those dreams of this girl once young
Lush and repeating
Alas, my youth is no more
But there is no loss
My eyes are open
I feel with something deeper, stronger than my hands
I make haste
I have loved, made love and will love some more
Lest I forget
If when I doubt
I remind myself
Open your eyes I shout
Look...the sand, the silt..it slides past your fingers...
Push and pull, hold what you adore
.....and do it some more
