Composure

COMPOSURE

 IMG_20150506_203937[1]

Searching for composure…

A calm and even keel,
Controlling what I feel,
Knowing when to conceal.
Thinking, before I speak,
Biding, before I seek.

Waiting out the weak,
 Learning how to deal


Gaining a better grip…

A handle on such things,
How my opinion rings,
That sarcasm stings.
A jab, from out of sight,
Catalyst, to a fight,
Bruising with its might.
The hurt that it brings


Restraining words that wound…

Ceased, before they’re said,
Bandaged, before they’re bled,
Repressing all the red.
More composed, with what I say,

More steady, with every day,
 Anger slowly drifting away.
Smooth sailing ahead


Finding my composure…

Speaking more to please,
Calming the stormy seas,
A consistent gentle breeze.
Words, clearly thought,
Words, carefully sought,
Words calmly wrought.
Shaped by their ease

Searching for, and gaining,
Finding, while restraining,
Retaining and maintaining,
my composure.

Away

 

           Away

I float
 away
My mind
  drifting
My mechanics
going through the motions
Getting
the rest of me
through the day.

Cruise control life.
Automatic pilot.
No way to live.


I awaken

  today
My thoughts
  alive
My instincts
going through their paces
  Taking
the best of me
 away.

Control of my life.
Navigating my course.
So much to give.

Awake
  Alive
   Away…
Getting
the most
of every day.

“If a man constantly aspires is he not elevated.”

Henry David Thoreau

 

                       Aspire

The willingness to change your life
is all about your will

Deciding what makes you the happiest
and making it better still…

by ascending to the summit
of ambition’s highest hill.


Assuming control of who you really are

and doing what makes you whole.

Striving always to live your best life
by reaching for your loftiest goal…

by nurturing the impetus
inside your aspiring soul.


Inhabiting a life that makes you proud

and making the most of every day.

Attempting something you dare to do
by doing something you dare to say…

by using your elevated will
to find the ultimate way…

to live your life today.


You change, you thrive, you feel alive.

The willingness to change your life
is all about your will.

Expanding your horizons creates space for the new

Enhance your life with challenges and new experiences

To grow is to improve, and to improve is to change

Fulfillment is all the motivation that you need                                                                                         

Deciding what makes you the happiest
and making it better still…

Determine what you want from life and live accordingly

by ascending to the summit
of ambition’s highest hill.



Assuming control of who you really are

and doing what makes you whole.

You should be the change that you seek

Cultivate the courage to take chances

Keep moving ahead because life does not look back

Striving always to live your best life
by reaching for your loftiest goal…

Keep your ambition close to your heart

by nurturing the impetus
inside your aspiring soul.



Inhabiting a life that makes you proud

and making the most of every day.

Don’t just devote your time, invest in it

It is never too late to be who you want to be

Attempting something you dare to do
by doing something you dare to say…

You change, you thrive, you feel alive 

by using your elevated will
to find the ultimate way…

to live your life today.
