Food For Thought Friday

Poem-Image
To do one thing that is true
to yourself,
not listening to the voices
that would mock you
into staying ordinary
 
To do all the many things
that are inside
and need to get out,
not remaining beholden to
the suffocating tedium
of other people’s expectations
 
To be brimful with anticipation
for whatever new passion might be
waiting to unfurl;
 
To have stories to tell,
instead of nothing to say
 
How sad to live a life
that is not like that.

A poem written by my mum that featured in her funeral booklet.
