Poem: It’s Okay Not to Plan

Found another old poem on my time-line. I wrote it  back in December of 2014.–

NottoPlan

It’s Okay…Not to Plan Sometimes…

If we live life as a plan…
Planning for each moment,
We forget to enjoy the surprises
And all the little things in life…

If we plan to live.
Then we don’t really
See life…

It’s humbling at times,
To just wait to see what
The next few minutes bring,
Instead of planning for them…

But at times, we learn to live,
Let go, and allow faith to step in…

Faith is full of surprises…
And can even bring hope
To the weary eyed…

It is okay…
To not have a plan sometimes…
It actually, gives you time to enjoy life..
To relish every moment…
Every second…
Every breath that God gives you…
Because within seconds,
We can be called home…

While we are conditioned to plan…
We must uncondition…
To appreciate every piece of life
Surrounded around us…

Live to breathe
Live to hope
Live to appreciate…
Live to see life
And hear your spirit sing…

“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.” Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls…. Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International. She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein. Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“ During other parts of her free time, she enjoys taking photos and creating art. Her “day-jobs” include working as a church administrative aide and reporting for a local newspaper.
