via Daily Prompt: Explore


I am driven to explore
What lies beyond my door
To wander thru my life
Looking for something more.

Unable to just settle
To accept what comes my way
I am highly motivated
I have plenty of things to say.

I wonโ€™t follow and be guided
By the small and the bleak
It is knowledge that excites me
It is what I strive and seek.

Writing is my passion
Give me paper, give me ink
I will dazzle and amaze you
With what I feel and what I think.

My family, my foundation
Their love so deep within my core
They are there to support me
Give me wings so I can soar.

I will continue on my journey
Make my way thru lifeโ€™s sweet maze
I will cherish all the moments
Of each and every day.

  3. Hi! I’m glad you like the poem. ๐Ÿ™‚ I was hoping you would like it. I know you’ve been very busy lately and probably hadn’t seen it. You are an inspiration to me, Viola! I’m also glad we met here and honored to be a part of WordPress with you, too!!!! I’m very excited about your new project and wish you much success!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
