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

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

Posted 7 Months Ago


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.
