Thriving In The Jungle

Thriving In The Jungle
By:  Adrielle R. Bollin

Stampeding horses, thundering hooves
Stubborn buffalo, who refuse to move
But in comes the rider to guide and to lead
Directing the traffic until all of them cede

Emotions like these while I step through the doors
Preceding the moment, like lions they roar
Like a native who navigates the jungle with ease
You whisper your secrets of survival to me

With each step I take I'm a little less scared
Reminding myself again that you're always there
The road that I travel though covered with snares
Is worth all the risk to show that you care

For out in that wild and unforgiving world
Are people who need to see love that's unfurled
They need to feel peace like a swan on the lake
They need to see beauty that can give and not take

So while in the labyrinth of woolly wild beasts
I'll heed your advice and eat the rare feasts
For without my guide I am ruled by the chase
Backed into a corner and left in distaste


  1. At times we can all feel lost when we step outside that which is secure and familiar.;) And then, as you say, it is comfortable to know that we have someone to guide us.
    Thank you for this inspirational start on my week.;))Have a lovely Monday dear Adrielle,

  2. Lovely...very powerful imagery.

  3. It is good to have somone there to help us through when the world can be a tough place. We are so blessed to have that in our lives and you have said it so well here : )

  4. This flows on a lot of levels, even the erotic...which I found strange, but pleasing. I wonder if you talk with such depth in a non-poetry mode. I somehow imagine you living in another dimension.

    This, in case you misunderstand, is a good thing.



I'd love to hear what you think, so drop me a line! You can also e-mail me at :)
