Wordle #215 – The realm of reason

The realm of reason in a heartbeat

Allow me to have a serene voyage

Satisfice, result might be bittersweet

Not everyone loyal, that’s annoying

Not everyone telepathic as well

Soft touching of my lips and I’m bouyant

Affix brave and I come out of my shell

Beating my chest I know I could do it

For I always have a story to tell

Even with lower esteem I don’t quit

Pragmatic as always even with doubt

Come what may, either make it or lose it

I could be lost but I choose my own rout

Challenging and having fun on the way

And when I reach the top I need to shout

Clouds might be grey, still I play and sway

Could also be a small annoyance

Even with pain I’m still here to stay

I know the time when to fight or to flight

Road might be rough but I think I’m alright

The realm of reason in a heartbeat

Satisfice, result might be bittersweet*
