"I am hearing poetry when awake, dreaming poetry when asleep, breathing poetry with each breath, I am living in a poem."

Hold Your Space

The world spins on everyone else’s dime if you let it.
Hold your space in deep breaths and the soul light of the moon.

To worry your wings with another’s journey
will leave you flying at the speed of their expectations.

Take time to see where you’re going before
you are blind to anything other than a clock.

There is such wisdom and power in this poem, Susie!❤️ Especially love and resonate with; "To worry your wings with another’s journey will leave you flying at the speed of their expectations." Absolutely!❤️

Love, love LOVE it, right from the first line. I think I spent way too many of my younger years living life that way. Nope, never going back to that. If I'm going to move like caffeine fueled anime character, it's going to be doing the things that I love.

I love the wisdom in marching to your own drum only...not anyone elses. Great words!

I love "hold your light...in the soul light of the moon".

Ella said...

Oh, I love this and I so, feel this energy as time hand's are painting new lines in my brow~
I have flown with the expectations of others-it is their vision-not mine!
Your words have so, much impact on me-thank you!

Jim said...

Nice, Susie, good advice. I like your invented concept of 'worried wings.' I'll keep mine on the up and up.
Also reminded me of Myspace. I must check in again, check in things.

Ah, a true Butterfly Susie poem!

...flying at the speed of their expectations - wise words indeed!

Sometimes, it takes us years to learn this. This cuts to the true essence of being yourself and following your own path. Beautiful!

This is good advice and a nice poem. I might have to come back and read this often.

I feel that we are so often tethered to clocks that others control... where is the puppeteer?

"If you let it..." This poem is about what we allow to control us - and the choices we have to tune it all out if we so desire.
