Shared Destiny


I wish I had a silver pen/keyboard (akin to a silver tongue), where words flowed freely and fabulously.  Blending together like milk and honey, producing unparalleled vivid imagery, and evoking emotions that scream to be released.  I admit, I struggled with today’s poem, and in an attempt to create some semblance of flow, I have lost some original intent. I accept this journey and stretch myself to create harmony between my thoughts and my words, and know this will only come with commitment.  I have been completely inspired by the poetry that has been submitted through NaPoWriMo, and I would be curious to hear from other writers about their process, their search for the right words, the sweet cadence, their holy grail of perfect prose.

We all have the same destination
Regardless of your beliefs
When you finally find yourself
Your destiny will be complete

Time wasted in close examination
Find your True Self or suffer the wrath
Time wasted in locked hesitation
Determining the Right Path

The path that leads…Where?
To the same…Destination?
This time can never be reclaimed
Lost in recantation

The path you are on Today
Is the right one
The self you are Today
Is your true self

This journey
Uniquely created for you
Requires only
One foot in front of the other

Do not stop to find yourself
You are not lost

I see you for who you are,
Today, and every day
And I will see you in our
Shared destiny
