For The Sunday Muse Prompt #82.
in their noon day
repose, strength hides
within their supple limbs,
the power of the one –
unfettered in its reach –
melded to the quiet guile
of the other; together –
a Whole stronger than its parts –
freely, wildly going.
I don’t wanna feel like this tomorrow
I don’t wanna live like this today
Make me feel better
I wanna feel better
Stay with me here now
And never surrender
Today, in a bizarre moment of clarity, I realized I had parked my bus for way too long at a bus stop that wasn’t mine… A lot of energy was dissipated, focus diluted and time irretrievably wasted in the process.. Funnily, I knew a year ago very clearly what I should have done – it was reiterated very strongly five months ago – but the deeply seated nostalgic memories continued to keep me deluded, holding me in a mistaken belief that it could work and banishing my usually ruthless streak to the background…
Today, me the pragmatist won, belatedly of course, but better late than never…….. And in a queer way, it feels so right!
Thanks to Seye Kuyinu for tweeting about the Skillet Song Never Surrender, it added fresh impetus to my new direction…
