Just Going Through the Motions of Living: A Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


There is one sure way to let go and unwind

by going through motions of our daily living

as we drop all its significance from our mind

stemming from their purpose in our believing.

We have done them all in so many ways

in every single chapter our life story tells

and if we took apart all actions of our days

it would be little motions, and nothing else.

We know them all by heart and if we allow their flow

without much supervision and playing smart ass

our intuition will guide us where we should go

with hours going smoothly before they pass.

We don't have to hover like hawks over our doings

with distrust and concern about messing it up

so let's go silent with all our inner booings

willing to give up perfectionist crap.

Breathing-in and breathing-out is what really matters

and then we could even get a pleasant surprise

with new life delivered to us on silver platter

with its relaxed beauty before our eyes.
