The Awakening


The Awakening


Feeling free and alive
Moving forward in time
Opportunities abounding
It can all be mine

Learning new things
Accepting changes each day
Experience as much as I can
Let life lead where it may

Taking charge of my heart
Thinking clearly and right
Believe in myself
Giving with all of my might

Things happen for reasons
No one can predict these
With a Meaning and power
It Teaches the soul to be free

Letting go of the past
Keeping it in perspective
Not forgetting but letting
and being objective

Take what life gives
Make the most of each day
Keep hold of morals
And let come what may

Focused and determined
Feeling refreshed and in tuned
I will find what I need
Becoming  renewed

We can write our own future simply by letting our hearts show us the way....obstacles, get out of the way. A lovely piece of poetry, Purpleswan..........................................................gogant

Super write I mean wOOt! The only flaws I feel is maybe how the beginning began with statement aka "Feeling" = present tense to ending with a "It can" = future. Present = is. Believe = do. Believing = doing. and last object that felt a lil quirky was "in tuned" lol the "in" feels extra? Overall well done!



I would like to thank you first for the comments. I was thinking present to future in that first stanza so I guess it would appear out of sync. As for the end, I agree, it should read "in tune". thanks

purpleswan, I enjoyed this poems message, written very smooth with nice bumps. For writing over just a year, you most definitely have talent with words and it rhymes beautifully. Great job!



Thank you very much for your kind words. I was thinking progressively when I wrote this one, in hopes of accomplishing the end. Thank you again.

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
