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.

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.

ANGELA HERE - Thanks for sharing MAXINE - Love the visual - Tne road ahead of you may be STRAIGHT (PROGRAMMED) Uni is like that - but its frull of Uncertainties. You are right to be scared - you need the ADRENILIN to keep you going ! Im 31 so I know 33 is a good age to enter into a New Phase ! I was 29 when I went to NEW ZEALAND for 15 months which involved Training to be a Hands On Physiotherapy Tutor with 5 Maori Trainees. I was 11,500 miles away from Brian - My Family & My Friends ! BUT I survived qualified and now I am back in the UK - qualified & working with six UK Trainees. Also Im getting married in APRIL which will be an even bigger hurdle - BUT Love is on our side and YOUTH (31 & 36). Every Blessing you are on our Prayer & Care List - AMEN !

Blessings & Peace & Joy
Love ANGELA & BRIAN

Brave new world? But you are courageous for having put yourself there. First days were always a bit terrifying though we tried to hide it beneath a facade of being at peace with the world. But first days come and quickly go and soon you will warm to the new experiences and thrill to the discovery of new places and things to explore. Oh and theres that wisdom thing too, yep you;ll be getting wiser and more learned.
All in all it\'s going to be worth it i guess.... what do YOU think ? LOL

I\'ve never felt enough, it sits down in my gut.

Rots away saying nothing will ever stay

This I know I a pattern given to me that I\'ve carried on.

Between your words and little gift, the message is clear

Keep up our write and will find our light

Thanks for sitting with my shadow and soul

Giving straight from yours in even word you choose

Much peace and respect
Always appreciated

In my life I\'ve been on the giving and receiving end of similar emotions and thoughts. It\'s a difficult feeling to bear, especially if you feel alone. I did enjoy the read, and I hope writing this has helped you in even the slightest bit.

Sometimes (a lot of the time?) it is circumstances we are in, that may cause us to think on these lines.
Well, this is enough, this poem, and that\'s a fact!
And what is enough, even after one song, is my singing! (so I say) heehee!
