Trip – A Poem
Is about various physical and mental trips.
I started a trip toward the new day
To pay my gratitude in a simple way
Enjoying the silence that brings the night
The stars woke me up with the first sunlight
To travel the world was my Turkish delight
Driving on the road filled with pride
That I owe myself freedom inside
Looking at birds that fly high
It motivated me to consume
The little sweets I was advised
Would make me fatter on the sides
But I dance with the devil without stepping aside
To burn calories with my body and mind
The feelings forever made me realize
It’s nothing better than dopamine out of the hide
When I feel the warmth of the sun shining bright
And walk long-distance, listening to my favorite songs
The daily uniqueness is a road trip of prime
Understanding the differences when people are tired
From the eternal routines that are silent killers
Of heart’s catastrophes that should be left behind
Today is present and I should joyfully smile
Tomorrow’s trip is not promised because I may die.
Gratitude and forgiveness are part of tonight
When dreams are way-blurring around the red line.
I am a faithful trips lover and that will not change. My dream was to have a family home with three children and pets. But, currently, my focus is on traveling in my car. I want to have a place to come back to after my trips and that is an honorable goal.
However, I still do not know where that home may be.
It’s an undeniable fact that I bind the home with a person. My relationships were always connected to the feelings of security and safety in the arms of my beloved. My hope to feel the same way again won’t change.
The most important to me now is to stay and feel alive because a life without fire in the heart is meaningless. I am still single, so the flaming thoughts, for now, are a mirage.
But, the soul’s sparks should not be limited only to relationships, but also to the universal life around people. Prayers are neverending gratitude for the moments’ everyone can smile, feel, walk, listen, and enjoy with close-to-heart people. The little things I like to do are: feeding the cat and smiling under the sun ray. They will not be replayed. Watching the sunrise daily is my way to send gratitude to the Universe. When the new day comes, a fresh trip is on the cards.
Times change and people should be flexible when it comes to various travels inside or outside. I believe every trip is unique. And do you?
