I do not have to be the best (poem)

There’s nothing wrong with just being yourself

I do not have to be the best

Must I be the best? Can I not just rest?
What is wrong with this life I have now found?
I could climb higher, become a flyer,
But I like having my feet on the ground.

Must I run ahead? Jump out of my bed,
Every morning, must I start life fast?
If I stand behind, more peace I might find,
Perhaps a tranquil moment that will last.

I see a bright light, filling up my sight,
Saying to me ‘here fame and glory be.’
But all that I find, is that I am blind,
And life’s beauty I can no longer see.

I quite like my life, there’s not too much strife,
I have enough to be content right here.
For here I can smile, and rest for a while
Going slow to let contentment stay near.

An anti-negativity day (poem)


Let’s have a day full of good bits.  

An anti-negativity day

An anti-negativity day, that’s what this day is going to be!
A day for releasing everything that has ever worried me.
A day for throwing out all of that inner sadness and sorry,
For I know full well that they will return, quite happily, tomorrow.
A day for doing pleasant things with only pleasant thoughts in mind,
To take a look around and see what enjoyable things I can find.
Perhaps I will just sit and rest, or at least that’s how this day will start,
Then maybe find an activity that will bring enjoyment to my heart.

Let’s just read the good news and ignore any bad bits there may be,
And leave it to the rest of the world to do the worrying for me.
A day of anti-negativity, taken just once in a while,
Will give my tired soul a rest, and a chance to do things with a smile.
For what does it matter if today is one of sunshine or rain?
I intend to search the good bits for some happiness to regain.
Let tomorrow come along well after the setting of the sun,
But from now until then, I’ll let this day be one of peace and fun.

Why Me? (poem)


We can find a way towards a new life.

Why Me?

Why me? Upon this tired day,
Are the only words I want to say?
It feels today that all has gone wrong,
And in my life, I do not belong.

Upon this seat I now sit and stare,
And think of the life that once was there,
When blue skies ruled and the birds did fly,
And the sun rose gloriously up high.

Now it seems that everything’s gone grey,
My life has gone a different way.
That all my plans have fallen through,
Where, my world once bright, is now so blue.

But have I really got this view right?
Are my dreams truly out of sight?
This may not be the future I planned,
But this is my life, where I now stand!

I do not have to sit here and cry,
But instead, look up at that dark sky,
And seek for the stars that live up there,
And let them guide me to, who knows where?

Perhaps I may find a better path,
That will lead me to where I can laugh.
That those first plans were not right for me,
So let’s start walking and go and see.

An empty room in life (poem)


The potential of an empty space.

An empty room in life

The empty room is waiting, all tidy and swept clean,
There is not even a cobweb anywhere to be seen.
A fine open space, sparkling and ready to be used,
Where any interesting event will not be refused.

Perhaps used by a book club, with plenty in there to read,
Or new clothes put on display, in wool, cotton and tweed.
A gardening club arrives with their flowers in full bloom,
Or an exercise group starts running rings around the room.

Perhaps a children’s party is planned in there today,
With plenty of toys and games so everyone can play.
A floor mat is put down where babies can happily crawl,
While toddlers each get to sit on a brightly coloured stool.

There are so many things you can do with an empty space,
So many things you can seek out and put into that place.
An empty life can be approached in just the same way,
There will always be something you can do with it today.
