Stranded

Stranded, motor seized in the middle of deep blue sea
always desiring another personality I could never be
a storm brewing in my minds eye no escape in sight
if only tidal waves of self motivation could ride me right

Always desiring another personality I could never be
why does the one I have seem so distracted from me?
I need the guiding strength from in the beacons light
cruising my failing ship onto the sea's shore so bright

Storm brewing in my minds eye no escaping in sight
I try and try to get to the safe shore with all my might
is my only hope in paying some navigator a hefty fee
to guide me through my insecurities by offering a key?

If only tidal waves of self motivation could ride me right
getting me through the terrors of ocean's darkest night
so washed ashore and all alone never again I may be
stranded, motor seized in the middle of deep blue sea

We can only be who we are. Realizing that I think is the key. As in all aspects of life we have to look for the good, cultivate that, and be grateful....count your blessings, I always tell my girls! Perception is powerful, either for good or bad. So focus on the good! That's my advice and it's free!! Great poem, Gloria!

Denise:Thanks for reading and the advice, glad you liked it  

Ruth: Thanks for reading.

Now let me explain before I look like a total idiot here, I should not have written this poem for the reason of pure exaustion. When I get this tired my mind takes over and makes a mess of me and spits these depressed poems out that I suppose must have some merit if they come from my thoughts, but usually I have the strength to rise above them to concur before they take off. Sorry this one's launch pad was clear for the skies before I could reach it.

Yanno..don't ever be sorry for posting a poem, and one that came from the heart even! We all have our 'weak' moments, when we're tired and need to get something out...our times when we succumb when normally we wouldn't.  That's ok, it's what makes us human!     And it also helps us keep our chins up and moving forward, eh?

Well done as usual, I always enjoy reading your poems.

Hey hey Lost Dreamer... well written words even if it were on the downer side of things. But we can't always be on the up side... so apologies not.  So many poets in PIP write to get something out of their system... that's the way I'd look at this.  And I find at times if I don't think to hard and I just let what ever is in me at the time come out... it make for pretty good writing.  I think you've done that here.  Peace to you.

Apologizing for the ability to take what's on your mind and put into verse like this? No, don't apologize!

I can relate to this one, I've felt like this before. I think you've done a great job!
