Your Own Soul

When to say yes

When to say no

When can I be my best

Or should I just let it go

Where is the pot of gold

Where is the sweet honey

What does it take to be BOLD

On this bumpy road journey

Does it always have to be rough

Why can't it be just like an innocent laugh

Does it always have to be borrowed

From the casting shadow of tomorrow

Yes! You can clasp a hand of hope

No! Don't expect it's gonna be cotton soft

You've got to pull yourself together

Believe without fail,

That things will always be getting better

'Life is what you make it' as they say

It may... 

It might... 

It must... 

With determination, and with a pray

Be your own soldier

Be your own leader

Be your own angel

Be your own label

Be your own guide

And OWN your own ride

But most of all

Whether you're on a rise or on a fall... 

Be your own person

Be your own SOUL.

Thank you for reading my poem. I remember, I have also seen some of your poems. Great work! 

I will write again when something comes my mind, definitely. Poetry is something that I really love to do. Have a great day.

Thanks a bunch. I'm glad you like it. Yes, hoping to flood MyEC with my cheezy poems. :) Have a good day!

Thank you very much for your appreciation. You've made me happy when you said that it is even an answer to the great questions of Life. Wow!

But still have many questions. I'm still more like a child, eager for the answers. Thanks, it means a lot.

Hello! It's a great honor having you here. :)

Thanks for appreciating my poem. Something from someone like you is really a great pleasure. I really also like your thought provoking blogs and discussions. Please keep it coming.

I'm super agree with you. :) We can't live always like this. Sometimes, we need a teacher, a mentor, someone who will guide us.

However, there are points in life, that we need an extreme ownership of the things going on in our life. When the things are rough, when the things are not panning out as you plan, when the things you aim seems out of reach, when you think the night is at its darkest, that's when we take our responsibility. No blaming anyone or blaming ourselves, but be our person, our own soul. Own our own ride on this life. Whether we are on our Rise or on our Fall, take extreme ownership of our situation. This is the central point of this poem. I kinda down when I wrote it. I just wanna remind myself and lift up my spirit. 

Nonetheless, I really appreciate your thoughts about this. I would love to write another blog tackling the topic that you brought up on having someone to help us. You've just give me a great idea! Thank you so much.

Great interpretation! I like it when you say be a hero or heroine to ourselves and we must value ourselves. Even sometimes, other people would see us as insignificant, to ourselves, we are as valuable as any other person.

Thanks for your comment.

Thanks for your encouraging words. I'll definitely do adding my poems on my track once my pen has an ink again and you too, keep us inspiring us to write.

Wow, really great words, dear Mayumee! Love it!  :)) 

Just... it's really hard to live like that all the time... we can't just be superheros all the time, can we? So, maybe sometimes someone else can be our soldier, leader, angel, guide... dunno... just a thought. 

Thanks for sharing! :-)
