Constantly In Motion Poem by Mwenyeji Spikes

Constantly In Motion

What if earth stood still for a rest momentarily?
Tired of going round and round her feet sore and her will restrained
Her revolution round the sun brought to a halt for the sake of rest
I would hope she never gives up of her motion

What if the moon finally gave up on rotating?
Moved from her own axis and tipped off to the side to take a nap
Seasons and signs all brought to jeopardy to the end of chaos
We would all begin to appreciate her dedication and constant motion

What if the sun didn't rise on the East tomorrow?
Would we embrace the darkness of the day and the cold of the noon
It would open our eyes to the beauty of the constant motion for all beings
Heavenly or earthly motion keeps us alive and going for all eternity

When we rise, we move in the rhythm of the universe
We shape our destiny by being constantly in motion both for good & evil
To our ends we hope that one day our hearts never fail in motion or skip a beat
The rhythm of the universe in constant motion keeps us connected.
