There are moments in life
Where you are sleepy.
Where you let things happen
Where you just let it ride
Let it roll.
I do it, I’ve done it.
But I don’t like it.
I like the kicking and screaming.
The barbaric yawp sounding,
The feisty fight.
The burst of your inner warrior.
I’m a lover and a fighter.
But I’ve also been a wait-er.
A run all the scenario-er.
A settled in the deep groove-er
What wakes one up?
Is it self-awareness?
Someone telling you truth?
News from a doctor, lawyer, your best friend?
Whatever it is.
Bring it on.
I’d rather look all the things and stuff of life in the eye
Than have it come up behind me
And knock me for a loop.
Be a warrior.
Foot on the pedal
Never ever false metal
Engine running hotter than a boiling kettle
My job ain’t a job
It’s a damn good time
City to city I’m running my rhymes.
No sleep till…*
DAY SIX, 28-day #lovechange challenge.
“Those who don’t feel this love pulling them like a river, those who don’t drink dawn like a cup of spring water or take in sunset like supper, those who don’t want to change, let them sleep.” ~Rumi
