ALWAYS POSSIBLE

by Gary Jurechka   Sep 12, 2005


When we have become
migratory birds, blind lemmings,
creatures of habit, bound by
clocks and calendars and
everything around us, when we are
locked into routine and the
struggle for mere existence,
as though trapped in life and
amidst songs of lamentation
we retain vague reminiscent notions
of dreams in hazy late night hours
before falling asleep where we are
reborn into the new day.
And upon waking
we must remember
we are gods of destiny
weilding a power of our own control
that sometimes we don't even realize
we possess, and we must remember that
all is always possible-
it is never too late,
there is always a different path,
always the option of choice,
somewhere there is always
an open door into change and freedom;
sometimes we glide into it unknowingly
upon the gentle wind,
and sometimes we must
chew a leg off to escape.

    I liked the rhytm ( although I'm not good enough in that section of poetry to tell if there was a specific one-if so I'd like to know )
    "and sometimes we must
    chew a leg off to escape. "
    I think a pause after " sometimes "would be better for the rhytm ?
    very enjoyable piece of work , thanks for sharing it with the world

    I'm speechless...
    This is so deep, thoughtful... excellently written. The firs part of the poem about habits and routine reflect some of my thoughts and opinions on that matter and it is truly excellently written, and sadly, it is all so true.
    The second part of the poem is very inspirational and it really brought the smile to my face. After telling all that in the beginning of this piece you express your opinion that the hope still exist. I especially like the lines:
    -And upon waking
    we must remember
    we are gods of destiny
    weilding a power of our own control-
    The ending of the poem is so effective, two last lines wrapped the poem together and they make the deepest statement in the whole piece.
    Excellent job!

    The denseness of text in this works well to convey the harried multitude of thoughts that whirl through our minds. Good work.
