Ride It Out – Ch#53 (Just one thing)

Do all that you can to survive,

Life can be, a really, tough ride,

Oft, tis difficult to, decide,

Whether or not, to stay alive –

Know it is possible to thrive.

Let the beauty of music heal,

The wounds that, you so deeply feel.

Listen for the cadence, the close,

The upbeat, that you can suppose,

This one life – of yours – is for real!

Chapter 53 – Summary from the Wisdom of James Rhodes

The post has been inspired by If I Could Tell You Just One Thing by Richard Reed.


Over the 62 days, in Dec and Jan, my challenge is to share the learning from each of the 62 chapters; hopefully in a poem, but who knows?  Follow my progress with the #JustOneThing Tag

Happy to explore what you make of the post in the comments below? 🙂

Delighted to link this decima to Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt #19 – RIDE



  1. I think you are right … especially when you are young. I used to get lost in the angst of Bowie in his (and my) earlier years. X
