Closer to Core

Spinning like a top
Constantly in motion
edges moving faster
Slowly moves the core

If I would stop
I would fall
Fearful of not spinning
Afraid, of being ‘me’ no more

On pointed end
I hang in balance
Forever in pursuit
drilling through the floor

Force of the chord
would eventually expire
inevitable would happen
Spinning top would spin no more

With the last wobble
The top falls
It lays down on its sides
No longer on its toes

As I lay down calm
Spining no more
My being was still
Closer to my core

  1. Beautifully expressed.
    The last few lines made me realise that time has come to relax and be calm and enjoy the beauty of nature.

  2. However you may try the inevitable will happen like the spinning of the top. The essence of the life circle. Beautiful lines.
