Journey

Life is a story
with an endless spin,
an action park ride,
controlled from within.
One day we fly high,
the next day fall down,
while studying rules,
a merry go round.

Fickle and dizzy
an unbalanced soul,
breaking the routine,
gaining self-control.
So many questions
await a response,
obtaining all needs,
still longing for wants.

The planet has changed,
nothing is the same,
words have new meanings,
unrelated aim.
Two steps moving forward
take one full step back,
slowly advancing,
remaining on track.

A visible light,
unfolds a strong bridge,
our soul forming wings,
our bodies the hinge.
Inhale then exhale
let go of the weight,
float calmly through life,
live what we create.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy

  1. “One day we fly high, next day we fall down”, reminds me to stay humble, the table turns quickly, in this case, the wheel. Lovely poem ❀️

  2. “Inhale then exhale
    let go of the weight,
    float calmly through life,
    live what we create.” Try (not always successfully) to implement the 1st 2 lines of this most days Grace. Thanks for this poem, evocative and motivational as always. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ˜πŸ˜

  3. Eloquently superb Grace …

    “Life is a wondrous scene
    Upside down, hanging around
    Gives you a top view of the ground
    Above the gloominess there is light
    Below the day there is night
    Where dreams are unwound
    Then here comes the sun again”

  4. Your line “Fickle and dizzy an unbalanced soul, breaking the routine, gaining self-control.” I liked this very much. That’s how I feel at the moment with all the changes I have been making within my life. Lovely writing.

  5. Your words that words have new meanings are so true. Well crafted poem, Grace! I too believe that life is nothing but a merry go round.πŸ˜ŠπŸ’πŸ’–

  6. This is beautiful and after reading this I think I can handle a Ferris wheel. If I close my eyes and focus on my breathing and just enjoy the wind kissing my face! Love this!
