Manic Mondays – The Wrong Road – A lyric poem.

20170507_155305

I have written this poem, which seems to have a song like quality to it (or is it just me?) for Laura M Bailey’s Manic Monday Challenge:

I arrive at life’s junction

I feel aimless, without function.

The roads lead off before me

Into futures, I cannot see.

So dark the path behind me,

I will not let my past bind me,

Into life’s adventure, I leap,

Trusting that I will find me.

 

My old infatuation

Brought no satisfaction

No reason, no reaction,

To my situation.

So, onwards I start walking

down roads without markings

Ever hopeful, without knowing,

If the path I take will break me,

Or hope, forsake me,

Take me forwards.

 

Of all the roads before me,

Only one road is the wrong one,

The one I must be the strong one,

To avoid.

In the dark storm of life,

All the other roads lead me through,

The Wrong road, is the one road,

That leads me back to you.

Keeping calm – Music to relax to.

If you’ve read one of my previous posts, you’ll know that I am having a few health issues at the moment.

https://talesfromthemindofkristian.wordpress.com/2019/02/10/swelling-protuberances-and-apologies/

I have been experiencing random swellings, that can flare up without rhyme or reason.

I have been told by a medical expert that I trust, to take antihistamines and to keep calm.

So, I thought I would share with you some of the music I am listening to in order to achieve this sense of inner calm.

  1. Fleetwood Mac – Albatross

2. Cavatina, Theme from the Deerhunter by John Williams

3. Chi Mai – Ennio Morricone

 

And finally,

Caribbean Blue by Enya.

 

What music do you like to listen to when you need to keep calm?
