For those who are used to receiving my typical posts, you will find something different in this poetry post. This is a poem that is a part of a Poetry collection that comes from a time of my searching.
Let’s Enjoy the Drive
It’s so hard. For me. To put this. Into rhyme
to put beauty into syllables
because this is a plea
a Plea for Life!
People just stop and slow down-
just for five minutes
Think of what kind of World we live in.
The amount of intelligence
And the amount of capabilities we have
as a people are staggering,
new inventions come daily,
inventions to make our lives simpler
and more enjoyable.
But they’re coming about too fast
everything seems to be going that way
Let’s not be in such a hurry
that we’re careless,
non-caring enough that someone
accidentally gets killed!
This is not a typical version of me,
my style of writing that is,
that’s because I don’t want to disguise
my message in any way.
I don”t know if it’s the money, even though
it probably is, but why are we rushing ourselves
as fast as we are?
