Those times come to us all Maxine but they can be dispersed in time and in the flow of words written on the page.

Maxine,

I feel your words through and through! It is refreshing to be able to recognize and admit when we don’t feel well! That is part of the healing process...I suppose!

A much appreciated and wonderful write!

This is a great poem my friend and one which I know many will be able relate to... I suspect that those same sufferers will feel better knowing that they are not alone...

All Good Things,

HOLA MAXINE - COMO ESTAS ? We quite agree ! Often when people ask us *Como estas Tu ?* we often reply - *Im OK !* when inside we are dying. The next two months are very stressful for us because we*re getting married - buying a House etc etc ! So if anyone asks *Como estas Tu ?* we*ll tell it like it is and hope for a bit of empathy !

Blessings & Peace & Joy always
Amor - Angela & Brian 💛💛💛💛💛

I felt like this after my nose surgery, very well expressed. True beauty is in the eyes ;)

Smash that mirror then, and get another one that says \'lovely!\'
But seriously, look in a mirror and say \'I like you\', even \'I love you\'. Seems like madness if having a bad day, but is therapeutic.
I did it with a therapist - hated it at first though.
Meanwhile - surely better than my singing though - so ya can\'t be that bad! heehee.

Maxine, The mirror does not show us ourselves as we are, it show a reverse of us so when you look in the mirror ignore the reflection and look further into your heart, that is where your beauty lays and it is shown to us all through your words. You are beautiful.

I admire the honesty in this verse of mirrored inspection we all have at times when our mind feels sad and our face reflects our mood...... Yet dear Maxine look behind your eyes - peer deeper inside and your core\'s real beauty you are sure to find. -

No! no! no! MMS the narrator got it wrong............. in this song.

ANGELA HERE - Ooooooo MAXINE what a sad Poem it brought tears to my eyes ! For any LADY in the 21st C - Self Image & Self Esteem are so so important !
You are a beautiful Young Lady - and a Mother - in your Prime (Im 31 so I know !) why all the self deprication. I love You & Your Poetry - I believe in You - so do dozens of other MPS Members. Please look in the mirror again and see yourself as we see you - BEAUTIFUL - AMEN !

Blessings & Peace & Joy
Love ANGELA 💛💛💛

Money
FineB said:

An excellent write Maxine!

Everything is money nowadays.

Money is not as important as good health.

How can you enjoy having so much money if your health is not good.

Keep writing FineB

Money
orchidee said:

And - we all knows the pricing, e.g. £5.99. We all knows it\'s only a penny off £6.00. It makes it look cheaper. Doh!

orchidee said:

Yes - and why might a £5 coin cost £10?! lol.
When St Paul said \'The love of money is the root of all evil\' it\'s said that he meant \'all KINDS of evil\', not that money is the be all and end all of ALL the problems in the world!

An absorbing write. It reminds me of my father who hated professional sport - he had a saying: When money comes in sport goes out.

Nice writing Maxine, good to read and take note of.
