The Future – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

socs-badge-2019-2020

Who says the future

Is predetermined

And can’t be changed?

The future is not

Carved in stone.

It is something

That is ever-changing,

And is something

You make for yourself.

Don’t be held back

By fatalist thoughts.

Dream your dreams.

Set your goals.

Reach for the stars.

Make your future

What you want.

It is yours, after all.

Welcome Spring

The sun is shining.

The air is warm.

Birds are singing.

Flowers are blooming.

The dark and cold

Of Winter

Is leaving

As the light and warmth

Of Spring

Is arriving,

Bringing with it

The promise

Of new life

And new hope.

Welcome Spring

With open arms

And embrace its

Promises to us.

Endings and Beginnings – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS #Poem

 

The ending of something

Often is saddening,

Bringing with it

Feelings of loss

That we think

Will never go away.

But we are all stories,

And stories never

Truly ever end.

As one story ends

Another story begins,

Just as one door closes

And another door opens,

Revealing to us new beginnings.

Embrace the ending

And cherish the memories

It gives you while

You embrace and

Embark on

The beginning of

Your new story.

The Journey – Stream Of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

socs-badge-2019-2020

 

Dreams are what

Help define us.

Help give us purpose.

Help us to be

Who we want to be.

Don’t let your dreams

Fall by the wayside.

Dream your dreams.

Become who you want to be.

The road may not be easy,

And may be long,

But always remember,

The journey of a thousand miles

Begins with a single step.

So take that first step

And begin your journey.

Want – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

socs-badge-2019-2020

What I want

I have found

Has slowly changed

As I have grown.

What I wanted

When I was little

Was simple enough.

Things like toys

And candy

And other things

That could be bought

From the store.

But now I’m older

And my want list

More often than not

Contains things

That can’t be bought.

Good health

Security

Love

Peace of mind

Happiness.

These sorts of things

Are what we all

should really want

From life.

socs-badge-2019-2020

 

Be a teacher.

Be a scientist.

Be the President.

Be a CEO.

Be your own boss.

Be an artist.

Be an author.

Be whatever you want.

If you can dream it,

You can do it.

Don’t let others

Say you can’t.

Dare to dream.

Where You Go – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

stream-of-consciousness-saturday-2018-19

 

 

Where you go

And what you do

Is entirely

Up to you.

Worry not

What others

Might think.

It’s your choice,

So choose.

It’s your life;

Live it.

It’s your story;

Write it.

The Role To Play – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

stream-of-consciousness-saturday-2018-19

 

 

A great man once said

That all the world

Is a stage

And the men and women

Are merely players.

As I make my way

Through this great play

We call Life

I have yet to find

The role that

I am meant to play.

But I will continue

To roll along

Like a stone

Until I find

My starring role.

Sway – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

socs-badge-2017-18

 

Brimming with happiness

She danced,

Her body swaying

Back and forth

Like trees in the wind,

Humming a tune

Only she could hear,

Without a care

Of who might see.
