    Daily Odyssey

    In an eternal ride
    I dive deeper into the mind.
    And possibilities
    With just a small amount of time
    New reality unveils.
    Proclaiming myself to sublime
    My battle prevails.
    In this euphoric state
    I'm adrift into my own realm;
    Of a world to conquer, and overwhelm.
    Until I hear this voice that shouts:
    Mister, to your last stop.
    So please be out!

    So the punctuation sort of sets the flow up, yeah... the rhymes keep it together. One thing, "Contemplating..." that line, it reads awkward, a more simple approach to what you meant. You overwhelm the world, or the world overwhelms you, see the syntax could be confusing. But I did get the message.
    Ending rings true! Like a broken reverie, or something. Yes, "odyssey" for sure.
    I think you write well, and overall you have a familiar message and yet your own distinct voice in your poems I've read so far. Thankya for sharing, jede. It was a pleasure.

      ps, might it work better to remove the unnecessary article (always check--and trim the fat, a good motto.) This would also make the rhyme work more 'perfectly': Minus the "that" in the second to last line, as well as making the plural into a singular form of shouts, so that it reads "Until I hear this voice shout."

      Always love your feedback.
      You are right about the "Contemplating... line" I was a bit hesitant about it. Gonna try to fix that. Again I appreciate your comment
