Never Lost



~~~

I am not aimless

I am simply an ebb and flow

Pulled by the gravity

The moon of my life

One side facing the light

The dark parts facing away

~~~

I am not unsettled

I take the river’s path

Course charted by least resistance

Strength not by speed, but by distance

I run to the closest sea

Mixing the fresh with the brine

~~~

I am not meandering

I am an explorer of life

Meant to search out the lesser paths

To stand on rare ground

Behold the ever-changing vista

The world given azure frame

~~~

I am not lost

For I hold no destination

No preset mark to arrive to

I am alive every step on my journey

Each one a well spring of life

And any thirst is well-indulged

~~~

    Everyone’s path and journey are different. Whatever works for each person is the way to live.

    This is beautifully done Brad. I especially love these lines:

    β€œI am not meandering

    I am an explorer of life

    Meant to search out the lesser paths

    To stand on rare ground

    Behold the ever-changing vista

    I love how you weave this together Brad. You are a watchful eye. I do get lost on my path but eventually find my ground again.

    Sending love and blooming jasmine from the porch it smells so lovely.
    Hugs Jonikins β€οΈπŸ€—πŸ˜˜
