    The Ride Of Your Life

    A single ticket
    for a single ride
    Everything you need
    can be found inside

    There will be things unseen
    surprises abound
    ups, downs, curves, and thrills
    so hold on tight, or be thrown around

    Try all you want
    with plans you make
    there are many options
    and many paths to take

    Some focus on the scenery
    and some on the speed
    Some try to slow it down
    and some grab away with greed

    Some ride with focus
    and others without a care
    Some want to sit still
    and others try, to go everywhere

    So ride as you want
    until your heart is content
    When your ride is over
    all you will have, is what it meant

    An insightfully presented common sense message delivered in a very creative poetic vehicle. Great work

    Like the rollercoasters, this is the first one I think I have come across in poetry. It does capture the essence of the ride...

    "all you'll have is what it meant" this is a perfect ending. Well done.

    wonderful metaphor - really well written, but I stumbled a bit in the second stanza (5 lines, not 4). I call it a journey, you call it a ride - either way, I love the last line :)



    Thank you so much for the great comment. Those 5 line stanzas annoyed me as well, so I tightened them up or you lol

    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.
