Adeeyoyo's Blog

I write what I feel…




Peace, quiet, harmony,
Calm, stillness, tranquillity,
Silence, serenity,
Isolation and seclusion.
This is my life…
I can invite people in
Or I can leave them out
According to my mood.

I am in control,
There is no more deception,
We know where we stand –
Enough of pretension.
Honesty is my password,
Integrity my secret code,
And these are the keys
To my humble abode.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx
