into the sunset

into the sunset

A Poem by jen

born out of a decision to not let the life upset me... poetry as therapy once again and finding that it actually works sometimes

i am the contented cat
stretching and yawning
at the moment i choose to wake up
i am the tide turning
just in time
to assure a day of smooth sailing
i am the hero
riding in, sunset on my shoulder
arriving to save the town
i am not chance
i am not choice
perception, possibility
perseverance? perhaps
i am the decision to continue
to look around
and shrug off despair and disappointment
to stretch and yawn
set a sail for a tamer tide
and save yourself
picking a sunset
riding in to it
and being your own hero

A nice flow of ideas... with the theme of being the thing you want - of contentment in making of life what you want....

... what we all want
