The key to success (Didactic poetry)

by Ingrid de Klerck   Aug 7, 2008

Feel free
free to express yourself
Free to follow your inner voice
wherever it may lead you

Dare to reach out, dare to love
Love not only yourself
but also to love the ones
that cross your lifes path

Walk away
Leave behind
old pains, old habits, memories
Do away with thoughts
that unable you to grow spiritually

Do not wait for life
to come to you
for you will wait in vain
your whole life long

Make your future
Make your memories
Create the man you wish to be
You are the designer of your own fate

Look around you
Look inside
What is stopping you?
You are totally free
to be whomever you wish to be

Didactic poetry is a form of poetry intended for instruction such as for knowledge or to teach.

Birthday present to my sweet friend Sammy C. aka Elapsed, who is turning 30 on 08-08-08!
