Poem: Is She You?

 Reblogging this poem I wrote and blogged for all mothers a long, long time ago. Today in the UK it is Mother’s Day.  This Sunday, I’m celebrating and saluting all mothers, no matter where you are in the world. I feel blessed, I have a British and European day to celebrate motherhood! If you were celebrating with me today, I hope you have had a wonderful day.

She, who is she? Is she me or you? If not you then she is who? All I know is she always says whatever it is I need to do …. trust me I’ll do. No matter the weather, no matter the stress her attitude is always “can do.”

Times get tough, troubled and unsettled waters maybe ahead, but does that make her see red?  Let me ask you a question, if you could do it all again in life would you? What would you seek to go back and re-do? You have a long list! Wow, my point, you have missed. Each experience is either a lesson, or blessing in disguise. Wrapped up in drama,  or feeling like there’s no light at the end of the tunnel.  But  If you never travelled that road of drama, would you be able to hold your head this high?

Read between the lines you’re much better, you’re like titanium, and much more refined after all that drama you left behind. You’re now one of a kind, so leave those bitter memories behind.

Each day, look in the mirror and figure out what it is you must do, or what you want to do? What’s your next move?

Never be bitter or never be so unkind to yourself, so that you can’t read between the lines.

Gather your strength, keep your goals in mind, never look behind. I promise you with this wind under your wings you’ll fly. Now you must reach for the sky. Some days will be hard, you have the kids, work, school,  dinner to make, cleaning, the list never ends and the worst bit – everyone has their demands of you! You’ll want to scream hold up! What more do you want me to fucking do? Huh?  But remember it’s your strength,

That will see you through. So let me ask you again who is she? Is she me? Is she you? Oh she is you! Then get out there and do what you need to do. Remember Proverbs 31:25 now who is she?? Is she you?… Yeah, that’s what I thought, I knew you had it in you.

High five, keep going and do what you need to do.

 I just felt like writing. Salute to all the mothers, carers, breadwinners, goal makers and hard workers out there!

Haiku Horizons Writing Prompt: Rain Poem #sunday #inspiration

In response to this week’s Haiku Horizon’s writing  prompt: Rain I’ve come over all poetic.  I imagined how the rain can compare to some kind of heartache…Not often  that I even see this side of me! Thanks for the prompt Haiku Horizons. I’m way over the word limit for Haiku but, hey oh well .. I was in the zone.

 

 

Realistically, it was over before we even got started, I never thought I’d feel this broken hearted.

Apart from this broken heart, where do I start? What have I gained from our time apart? Some perspective, strength,better health and a couple more dollar bills to add to my wealth.

Intuition, I should have listened to it, I should have followed it, when  just like the rain it beat at my door. Finally, my intuition inside of me, forced me to stand on my own two feet, forced me to say there must be a better life for me.  At one point I was too weak, so chance after chance was yours to reap.

Now in solitude I feel peace.  And just like the rain slowly I’ll wash you away.

Writing Prompt: Tree- A Poem #amwriting

Tree

 

Write a response to today’s WordPress one word writing prompt the word “tree”.

Through rain, wind, snow and heat you remain rooted and firm.Sometimes I wish I was that firm. In life I’ve had many lessons to learn, that’s how I’ve become firm.

Regardless of what’s going on you’ll always be there, just five minutes away, in the playground where all the local kids go to play. Whenever I need shelter, comfort or a place to escape, tree, you’re  always there for me.

Each season that passes I visit you often. Sometimes weekly I’ll head out,  and seek thee -my beautiful tree. For some time to reflect, digest and de-stress , it’s the best place, as  while I sit under you somehow

Everything seems brand new,  I see the world from a complete different view. My beautiful thinking tree, I’m happy for the day I sat down on the grass and found you.

 

It’s been a bit of a stressful day today! I can’t actually write – not what I’ve sat down to work on about two hours ago, so I’ve done a writing prompt poem instead.  

Word Prompt Poem:Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien

Rebuild

Browsing through the word prompts on WordPress  I spotted  the word”rebuild”, in response, these words came to me. Normally I’d write this sort of thing down in a note book and keep it to myself, or just see it as simple thoughts passing through my head and leave it as that- I’m a writer not a poet! But I thought what the hell …..  go wild blog it! 🙂

No, I don’t regret anything

No, Je ne regrette rien

No, I don’t regret that I’ve had to learn fast

No, I don’t regret  decisions I’ve made based on the past

No, I don’t regret  that this is all now finally a thing of the past, and  seems like it may not have been built to last

No, I don’t regret anything, no, je ne regrette rein

No, I don’t regret those feelings I was feeling back then, which put me here on this new path

No, I don’t regret these feelings I’m now feeling

Because of these feelings I’m now a better human being, and theyv’e  helped with the healing

I reach up, and feel like I can touch the ceiling and everything has such a brand  new meaning

 No, I don’t regret anything, no je ne regrette rien

No, I don’t regret that now I feel like my soul is not on a constant fast, starved of what it deserves, I now put myself first, hummm you’ve got a nerve! You honestly think I’m something you still deserve?

 No, I  don’t regret that I’ve  decided not stand still

sometimes,  I feel like I’m climbing up a massive hill

but I can’t stand still, and I won’t stand still, I’m ganna climb that hill, that’s why I’m starting to rebuild…. remember everything we had you killed.

No, I don’t regret anything, no je ne regrette rien

I’ll make sure that we’ll both  be OK both of us on our new path,  taking things step by step each day on this new path. I’m a lioness protecting her babe, you my friend , you’re free to go your own way.

No, I don’t regret anything, it’s time to rebuild.

The feelings I have for you have chilled.
