How does one decipher,
Mixed messages conveyed?
Go where there is no path,
But be careful not to stray.
Reach for the stars is guidance…
That often goes around,
But can this be achieved…
When keeping both feet on the ground?
Am I shooting for the moon…
If I aim to rise above the crowd?
Or is this evidence…
That my head is in the clouds?
Unraveling ancient proverbs,
Double edged, their meanings dual,
Will knowledge bring me power…
Or the wisdom of a fool?
Written for Fandango’s One Word Challenge: Eclectic
I thought this was a fun way to express some of the things I’ve been thinking about lately, especially with tomorrow being the “big day.”
Sometimes I look back at my writing and notice my ideas sway… like a pendulum… similar to this poem. Eventually I hope to share more on this because I’ve realized there’s a method behind my madness—and it boils down to things learned in recovery. Basically, how to maintain balance.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my eclectic thoughts!
Life is good and God is great!
