Just Float

ImageHeavy is the rock that sinks to the bottom of the sea,

Empty is the heart that will never trust, nor believe,

Doomed is the soul that will never whistle a tune or dance in glee.

Dark is the cave where the rays of sun will never shine,

Sad is the nightingale that for her lover shall always pine.

It’s never easy to always hang on by the edge,

To have a thousand dreams and not one fulfilled,

To see the scrapbook of one’s life sitting empty by the ledge,

The person who lives the fullest, does not live in a cement moat,

For walking the safe path offers no reason to gloat,

I rather be the boy who threw off his galoshes and jumped in the sea,

He may not know have known how to swim, but he sure as hell did float.

  1. Hello There. I found your blog the usage of msn. This is a
    really neatly written article. I’ll make sure to bookmark it and
    return to read extra of your helpful information. Thank
    you for the post. I will certainly return.

  2. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability
    and visual appearance. I must say you have done a amazing job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Internet explorer.
    Superb Blog!

  3. Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I
    guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am
    an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.

    Do you have any recommendations for newbie blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    1. Hi, thanks for your comment. I am sorry you did not get a response back from me, last time. What kind of recommendation are you looking for? Are you hoping to set up a new blog, generate traffic or what exactly? I can see if I can help, but to be honest I only started this January as well so I am fairly new…

So cute of you to drop me a line
