Round and round it goes
Sometimes fast, sometimes slow
There are days it feels like a merry-go-round
Others, things are more controlled
The depth changes at times like the wind
A howling force that seeks attention
Then the calm, as the eye of the storm hovers overhead
No attention seeking, just the process of moving forward
What has this level of depth and speed?
It is simple, the life you lead
Step by Step
Steps in this journey
Mark the places I have been
Each one leads to the next goal
And brings into focus the dreams that I dream
Without these steps that I take
The reality of life will have to wait
Why put off what needs to be done
Take the next step in the journey
The life you want has only just begun

Open your eyes
Open your eyes
Tell me what you see
Do the dreams you dream about still look good to you?
Can you reach the heights of greatness predetermined for you?
Nothing is promised in this world
You have got to make your own way
To ensure the promises of life
Get started today
Open your eyes to the life opportunities around
Set your goals and move forward
Stop hiding behind closed eyelids
Wake up and open your eyes
To the revolving world around

Continue to strive through the growing process
Knowing that you hold the key to it all
The knowledge you gain
Helps to move your journey forward
And makes the challenges easier to maintain

Living the life I lead
Let’s me see how mistakes can produce learning moments
Taking time to enjoy the world around
Produces the essence in this life I lead
Working towards goals, to fulfill this promise I need
Striving for perfection is what I bleed
There will be times when I do not reach my goal
The key to the life I lead is to find my role
Life’s limitations can only limit what you allow
You have control over all circumstances
This I will avow
The simplicity of life will make you see
The things most important can be
Right in front of you
But you must stay true
The vision you have requires additional work, time, and effort
Put the past behind
Start to remove the limitations from the process and let the simplicity of life
Guide your path

Why wax poetic?
Why wax poetic?
Waxing poetic allows me to find the flow
I need to make it through the day
This process provides the therapy, don’t you know?
You cannot get if you pay
Why the need you might say?
Thoughts, sounds, lights
Are all around
They color life for us all to see
The poetry provides my outline, the margins I need
To continue to color within the lines
Without the lines you have abstracts
So, do you see?
Waxing poetic is just for me
“Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility”.
