Awake. #inspiration

Awake.

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?

A birthday?

An election?

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.

Awake.

Alive.

Kicking.

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

Thank you for giving that little heart below a nudge if you liked this. :)
