In Step, Out of Step

In Step, Out of Step

By Tony DeLorger © 2011

In step I make my move,

join the race with much to prove.

I preen and plan and doubt remove,

and jostle for my place.

It’s me that knows I’ve got one chance,

and life waits not for youth’s romance.

It’s application work and stance,

success will follow me still.

I tried it once and now it’s done,

I know that life has more than won.

In step I was like other sons,

each one just like the other.

So out of step I try to be,

play my drum for all to see.

I cannot be anyone but me,

of this I am so sure.

Life is vast and I a spec,

amid the torrents that life rejects.

I’ve found my place, what I suspect,

has always been my fate.

In retrospect what I have found,

astounds me more than solid ground.

For all the uncertainty of place resound,

I know that I’m a writer.

      This was beautiful. We live in such a fast pace world that we forget why we were truly sent forth to do and you Mr. Tony were sent forth to write. Voted up awesome and beautiful.
