Life Goes On

Floating on
clouds
high above the
storm,
trouble doesn’t sway
my journey in search of tomorrow.

Sometimes,
the clouds on which I ride
hit turbulence but
at day’s end
I am still afloat.

Buoyed by family and friends,
I am never afraid of falling.
Surrounding myself with love,
I have the courage to follow my
destiny.

Today’s daily poem is written as a Piaku, a form based on the mathematical constant Pi. For this piece, I’ve used the first 16 digits of Pi for each line’s syllable count.
