I write what I feel…

The Past



Living in the past

Leaves no room for the present

Just marking time on the spot

Until death overtakes

Overwhelms us like a wave

In the ocean of life

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

  1. living too far ahead of yourself is just as bad….always looking forward, missing the present…


  2. A lesson poetically encapsulated. So true, Adee.


  3. A mantra worthy of dissemination. Nice work.


  4. Too true, too common and too often ignored!
