NO KEEPING ME DOWN


Every day when I awaken
and my feet hit the floor,
I give thanks for today,
grateful to be alive
and even more curious
about things than I was
just yesterday
or the day before,
about how things are
and how things work
(or don’t);
for they’ve always
been an adventure
for me and my mind.


So from this vantage point
of many years gone by,
across the chasm
of years and of life,
I find myself still
as excited about
what lies ahead
as I ever was
when I was a kid,
more clearly able to see
what I could never
quite understand
or see before,
a world that stretches
before me as far
as my still inquisitive
imagination allows.


No limits,
no boundaries
will ever keep me
from looking ahead
even farther
than I can now see,
curious about everything
in front of me
to imagine,
to explore,
so much more
than there ever was
before as I travel
here and there
as my imagination allows,
sharing as I can
with my friends
along the way.

  1. I used to love to take road trips but as I grow older I grow weary of the ride. Especially when it causes so much pain sometimes. I don’t fly, never have, never will. Great write. Be careful on your expeditions :)

    Thanks so much, Jean! Tomorrow will be a travel day for me — heading back home after being away for about three weeks. It’s fun to travel but always, as they say, “great to be back home.” :love: :love: :love: and (((HUGS))).

    I recall when my dad would pile all us kids in the car and take us for a ride to give my mom a bit of a break. Sweet memories for sure. Thanks so much, Inky! :love: :love: :love: and (((HUGS)))
