I wrote this poem after having some success, and then getting a slap down again...
In retrospect, I saw the steps missed (details I avoided) and found the pull to truly recreate all that I am… again, by looking at the mess created and picking through what I love, and what doesn’t serve me anymore. I woke early one morning and saying “I surrender and enough of this life!” Allowing the changes to unfold before me, knowing where my passions in life are at this point in my journey, and knowing that I have much more I am here to do, I wrote this poem.
Aim of Life’s Ride
by Jennifer Hillman
Life has turned underside down…again.
I got the hint in variety of forms and signs:
I only laugh and look a little deeper within
Listen for the inner giggles of my inner child:
within the laughter is a pure love
and the light
guiding me to the arrow straight direction.
I aimed high and shot with the bow
Now I've lost sight of where it landed
Ah! So the adventure begins once more!
Full moon bright
depth in Scorpio:
Death, rebirth and finding truth
surfacing from the soul’s hidden treasure.
Surreal truths dancing
in the clouds of discontent.
Passions linger with laughter's smile
knowing joy is my truth,
love is my aim;
to be that centered sun
balancing with this moon intensity.
Satellites send signals to the heart
keeping me straight in the moment’s attention.
Music soothes my mind
and whisper to me…
adventure of craving to escape, yet
not the time for this now.
Instead, slow down and breathe,
allow the waves pull me in,
to embrace the beautiful mess
and be the love of all that is.
I now settle in balance of life’s journey
with the laughter of the ride.
