To this rhythm I walk
saunter, sulk,
across canvases that boast bulk
noise, talk ,
strange chatter that throws me off
hinders, halts,
sturdy steps that seldom stall,
stagger, fall,
off a path that to my heart calls
resounds, enthrall,
diverting my meter from the common throng
rights, wrongs-

–  if you don’t dance to your own music
someone else will  make you sway
to theirs. 


It’s short. It’s simple. It’s Friday, folks. Got a little ‘gotta walk your own path’ vibe going on up there. I like the way the poem flows itself, even though I haven’t pounded it out completely as it really just came to me this morning. Anywho, I hope you enjoy and hold onto that weekend. Grab it with both hands and use it as a shield against the coming week!
