Ride Your Life

A Poem by Lucien Maier
"

Ride your life Ride your life, Like you do your bike. Grab it by the handle bars, Dig your knees into the sides.

"

Ride your Life

By Lucien Maier

Edited By Temperance Penrod




Ride your life

Ride your life,

Like you do your bike.

Grab it by the handle bars,

Dig your knees into the sides.


Roll into a problem,

The same way you do a turn.

Taking only enough speed off,

To see through the curve.
Focus on the end of the turn,

And keep an even hand on the throttle.

Don’t forget to drop a gear once in awhile.

Roll on that throttle,

Let your soul roar.

All the power sunk into the back tire,
Blasting you into the future.


Find your edge,

But don’t forget to smell the air.

Let the bike flow smooth down a canyon.

Take the moment or two to understand,

How lucky you are,

Just to have this moment right here.

Yes my friends,

Ride your life.

Ride your life.

Like you do your bike.

Grab it by the handle bars,

Dig your knees into the sides.


Done

Never ridden a motorbike before, but you had me riding pillion with you here. I like the message too, ride your life as you would a bike. Sounds more exciting than plodding along. First one of yours I have read. Thank you for the friend request. I'll check some more of your work out. Pleased to meet you.

It's interesting how life's simple processes can be alluded to the grand scheme. Riding a bike, for instance, is a great example of comparing the handle to the reigns of life. We must grip it firm and hold fast and take things slow and steady, even over the road bumps. On this journey, we should remember the feeling of the breeze through our hair instead of the hardships we're often forced to bare. Life should be so zestful. Great analogy. Great read.

A great analogy. I like the part about not forgetting to smell the air as we often do. Likening life to not just riding a bike but taking a corner or a challenge is pretty accurate. A good reminder and a great piece of writing!

For me and probably for you, a special part of life is being on two wheels. Your comparison of riding motorcycles being like life is a great one. As you may know, "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" uses the motorcycle exclusively as a teaching tool. Now my hair wants to feel the wind.

Simple yet inspirational. To me, these words represent how life is a journey and that life is continually moving forward, and so do we.

"Let your soul roar." What an amazing expression.

The first verse, the first few lines to be more specific, were catchy and brief.

"Ride your life
Ride your life,
Like you do your bike.
Grab it by the handle bars,"

A wonderful metaphor for taking control of one's life.

"But don’t forget to smell the air." This line adds a steady meaning to the poem. Its beautiful and unique. Good one.
