The Journey

The Journey

A Poem by Ashley Flynn
"

I wrote this poem for my mother on her birthday a couple years ago. She and her friends really loved the message, so I thought I'd share it with you guys. :)

"

A deep inhale,

Your arms outstretched

as you salute the sun.

The journey seems so long,

but it's only just begun.

 

A step, a skip,

ever so quick,

feet pounding as you run

Sometimes it feels near over,

but your journey's just begun.

 

So when life seems too short, too fast,

too hard to last,

take a deep breath and face the sun.

It's not anywhere near over,

The journey's just begun.

I do love it!
Words of hope wrapped in beautiful imagery. I have no doubt your mother enjoyed it immensely.

I really like the way you spliced these words together: "too short, too fast, too hard to last,". Very nicely done, dear poet. I always appreciate original phrasing.

At the risk of seeming greedy...give us more! More!

This is so good, like a breath of fresh air in a world running stagnant of love and good vibes. I love the context and presentation. A great gestiure for your mother and an amazing piece of poetry.

This poem is simple but carries a splendid and meaningful message for the reader. Uplifting poems like this are what a lot of people need to read everyday to keep them going through the tough times.
