I Cycle To Commute - #CycleToCommute

I #CycleToCommute

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Come rain, come shine –
There’s no dispute:
I cycle to commute.

I’m leaving my abode, hitting the road,
On my way to work – for me this is a perk.

I’m on the go, I’m in the flow.
The traffic light is green –
Cars are driving badly, I’m cycling in between;
The traffic light is red –
Cars from the other side haven’t started yet.
I make it still and go up the hill.

Table mountain looms high,
Above me the blue sky.
The sun is not shy;
And as traffic passes by,
For a moment I close one eye
And feel like I fly.

After exercise like this, life is bliss!
I can’t help but smile – this is my lifestyle.

 

But it’s not always as sweet as honey,
As I’m about to find out on my return journey:

 

Past swooshes a 4×4!
I push the pedal and speed up some more!
I catch up and I shout:
“Oi dude, it’s 1.5 metres I’m allowed!”
The dude just drives off,
“Fine then, drive like a moron,” I scoff.

I better speed up, as I know I’ll catch up,
at the next traffic light is where I claim my right.

As I arrive I scream: “Don’t be mean!
It’s 1.5 that keeps cyclists alive!”
But he just continues to drive
pretending he can’t see me in his fat SUV.
No sign of regret, instead
he nearly swerves into me when off we head
and I, running flat: “Fine then, drive me dead!”

 

The next one cutting me off rough
Is a minibus taxi, being all tough.
As he pulls in, a tirade of complaints is hitting him.
How many more times must I repeat: “It’s 1.5 metres I need!”
He stares at me in disbelief, as I show him my grief!

I better speed up, as I know he’ll catch up,
It’s the pain of this game: We’ll definitely meet again.

And here he comes! It sounds like tons
Roaring behind me, but he just passes by me.
Out leans the marshal like proper security staff,
Asking: “Is this distance enough?”
“Yes, thank you!” I laugh.

 

I turn the corner and continue further.
I’m in my hood –
Immediately the stress is lifted and all is good;
I’m almost home –
I feel so elevated I want to write a poem!
About how I played it and once again made it.

I breathe in deeply and relax completely,
Rather take it easy and arrive safely.

I carry on in a slow pace, forgotten is the rat race.
And I conclude:
I cycle to commute.

 

Yours TrulyJuly 🙂

BC x Seattle Humane

We are Bellevue College students partnering with Seattle Humane, an impact non-profit organization, with their mission to find homes for the animals in their shelter that are normally considered "unadoptable." Seattle Humane is unlike any animal shelter. They take in animals no matter the breed, age, or physical condition and hold them for as long as it'll take them to find proper homes for these animals. Their hard work and care is exactly what we need to create a better environment for the animals we love. Please follow our instagram page @bcforhumane for more animals in need of a home.

Have a dose of what life is really like living here – from my single-handed destruction of the Turkish language, random arguments with random relatives about everything from apples to vaginas to learning the secrets to making the perfect içli köfte! Highs or lows this is my observations from the melting pot of crazy that is my life in Mersin.
