look forwards look back
stop trying to navigate
your way through
you can’t control
happens for a reason
things happen the way things do
the universe will work it’s magic
and it’ll make it’s way to you
The inspiration I got for this poem was from me reflecting on how I sometimes want to control the outcome in certain scenarios or situations. I usually end up trying so hard that it backfires and I end up getting the opposite oh what I originally wanted. Sometimes though, when you don’t get what you want, you can actually end up with something better. I reflect on it and think that I shouldn’t try so hard, just go with the flow. A bonus of letting things just happen is the serendipity that can occur.
radiating warmth and lovely scents
darkness surrounding the light and I
toss, turn, toss, turn
close your eyes
