A Poet Never Sleeps

One day you will be faced with the impossible. When you become afraid, become inspired.

12 June 2011


There will always be another challenge
Mental, Physical, Emotional,
Each one comes and goes,
Replaced only  by the next.

One more book to read,
The next problem in the set,
A final page to write,
And the last note to play.

Another mountain to climb,
A mile more to run,
Lap after lap around the lake,
 And one more minute without air.

Teardrops in the rain,
A kiss goodbye,
The never-ending heartbreak,
And the inevitable death of love.

Running the extra mile,
And singing the final notes,
Breaking another heart,
 Striving  towards the goal.

Everyday a challenge
Each one filled with  risk.
Never stopping for a breath
Or to smell the roses.

This is how it starts and ends,
The circle of life,
Entwined within its challenges,
One after another in spins.
