Vision – a poem about what might be
We all need a vision of something to aspire to, simple or complicated, big or small. What’s your vision?
I’ve been toying with a vision
It isn’t very big,
A simple life with nature
Like a blade of grass or twig.
A Hippie cottage by the sea
With flowers and shells and cabbage,
Uncomplicated but sophisticated,
Relieved from rat race bondage.
Or what about a longboat
Not the Viking kind at sea,
The cosy, wood burning, stuck in a lock sort;
Perhaps a canal too far for me.
Do I need to have a limit?
Are my aims a little small?
Would a Ferrari and infinity pool
Be an order slightly too tall?You have to cling to something While adrift on life's life raft Click To Tweet
You have to cling to something
While adrift on life’s life raft,
Or today’s work’s all for nothing.
I’ve got a vision. Don’t be daft.
