10k Poem by Dee Daffodil


Rating: 4.7

I walked 10K yesterday..

'No way! '

I did!

'But why? '

There are times in your life,
When you need to say,
I think I can do this,
Then do away.

So, I walked 10K,
Because I could.
And near the end,
It felt real good.

Perhaps next week,
I'll jump from a plane,
Try bungee jumping,
Or eating a flame!

My point here is,
When you think you might,
Just seize the moment,
Don't wait for what's right.

Life's like that.
Sometimes your plight,
Is to just jump in,
With all your might.

Live life now!
Make the most of your life.
It's over too soon,
To be bothered with strife.

Dee, glad I jumped in here. Don't know what I was afraid of before! This is so upbeat and get on with life in attitude that I love it. The delivery is casual and so easy to read and yet it is profound at the same time. xx jim

Dee, I don't know why I didn't come along sooner. Hesitant maybe. But I'm learning to seize the moment. Loved the uplifting feel of this poem. Thanks for sharing it. David

Dee, I'm loving the 'can do'/ carpe diem attitude. Inspiring and motivational. (I must confess I'll still be reaching for the car keys though) . t x

I really enjoyed your poem til the last stanza. Sometimes rhyme minimalizes your art as it did in the last line.

Someone once said life his not boring, because you never know what is coming next. Your poem is full of not knowing what’s next, plane, flame, bungee jumping I like it, I like it a lot.
