Notice of absence from WriteBeLight
Here I go again .... have to be away for awhile. Not very long, though. Family, home and work are pulling me away, for now. Do not worry. With the exception of family and home, I will not let work take from me too much time to do what I love.... compose poetry. :)

Finally happy with myself,

With just me, today.

Wrote all of the checks,

Needed to pay my way.


I sit here content,

With my time at hand.

Continue for a while,

Before I get up and stand.


To place one foot in front,

In stride, before the other.

Moving ahead and forward,

With no worry or bother.


For, I have reached a point,

Very happy in my work.

Ignoring the petty,

Buffoons and jerks.


I cannot change people,

Can only change me.

I’m content with who I am,

Have peace of mind. Feel free.

    And try to relish every moment - well said WBL

      Have to try to Michael. You are right and thanks!

      A point that eludes most people . Cherish the moment for they seem to be fleeting .

      • WriteBeLight

        I agree swingline! Thanks.

        Last stanza makes an impact. Nice piece.

            A fine write. Erm, as is said, un-hymn like: 'Don't let the b******s grind ya down'! oohh.

            • WriteBeLight

              You got that right orchidee! It is hard to do sometimes, but so rewarding when you put your mind to being happy! Thanks.
