Come Explore With Me

Contributed by The_Unknown on Thursday, 4th February 2016 @ 11:32:26 PM in AEST
Topic: Lifepoems

I am the wind ó craving experience;
you didnít see me coming but you saw the dust I left behind.
The adventure you desire can be found at my side,
as long as you can withstand rushing current sweeping you away.
You better swim hard and keep your head above water,
because I wonít help you if you drown.
Iíd rather leave you on the shoreline for the scavengers to find.
Iím on this road alone and I lost my warmth,
yet somehow Iíve still got fire. Itís just in my blood.

Open the earth beneath my steady feet; collapse a cave around me, you wonít be able to break me. I refuse
to let something like that define me.
Iíll let them all take their best shot, but mine will always be better.
Iíll be the one flying away at the end of the night.

Hey, if you have a bottle of sunshine, youíre welcome to come sit next to me.
Maybe we can stumble across something new. Something that we can share.
If youíre up to climbing a mountain, get ready.
Unless you canít handle the avalanche.

I can swing through books and squeeze through letters,
Iíve been doing that my whole life.
But my energy is more than just a soul, it is life.
This life needs freedom to roam the depth of the sea and to breathe in the freshest mountain pine.
Life needs flames and ice; storms and clear skies...
Iím undefined as a whole ó I just flow,
unrigid in design to experience and learn. Iíll never claim a full form, unlike the lava pressing at my feet.

I donít much care where you came from or where youíre going.
Stay or go as you please, if you can keep up or if you could slow down. Iím not going to wait around for you, just as I wonít exhaust myself to keep up.
I donít expect anything from you; do what makes your life worth it.
Iím not going to sugarcoat it for your sweet tooth.
Iím just riding the lahar.

Talk about "in your face" this is it. Sometimes
it/'/s better to be brutally honest than to set up expectations you can/'/t or won/'/t deliver.

This was an out of the norm poem and I like how it gathered steam at the end. Sort of like an Old kick A - AC/DC song. Great stuff!
