I write what I feel…

A New Life

I’ve been drifting through life

Like the bubbles on my screen

I am the constant while life goes by,

But enough, no more ~

Wake up, participate,

Take life by the scruff

Don’t just spectate!

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 think I live in the moment (more than I used to do) not in the future nor in the past. Also the fear of another ‘accident’ has receded somewhat and I’m trying to do all the right things.
