I write what I feel…



Post No. 873




An old soul born anew

Created at the beginning of time

And given a new life

Another chance to dance

To the Master’s tune

Or to slouch off independence street

Not yet full-grown, but foot loose

Fancy free, smart alec know-it-all

Right ready to take a fall

Who knows, who cares

Enough to help to break the spell

To fill the hole which parents held

Before the busy-ness of life

Removed their power from the child

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. Kids grow up too fast. Everything we do is molding them to becoming who they will be. If we neglect them, they will surely grow to resent that. And at some point it becomes too late, cause they will not respect what you are saying if your actions never matched up.


    • Children, especially teenagers, do need a mentor whom they can respect. Teachers often filled this role. I think some of today’s teachers have lost the respect of pupils though because they have failed to maintain a fine line between friendship and respect.
