POETRY: A Beautiful Balance

A Beautiful Balance

Let your passions drive you,

Let them fill you with fuel,

Let your loved ones guide you,

But, follow your own good will.

 

Be the person you desire to be,

Be all the positive parts you see,

Be uniquely different to me,

But, don’t force difference too eagerly.

 

Learn from other peoples mistakes,

Learn from what they do and say,

Learn that it isn’t always too late,

But, make sure you give and not just take.

 

Teach others right from wrong,

Teach others to share in life’s song,

Teach others to respect differences,

But, be accepting and work on your weaknesses.

PERSONAL POST: The Appreciation of a Writer

Hi fellow Writing and Education Enthusiasts!

It has been quite awhile, I must say, since I have published a post that is not a Poetry or Prose piece. With this realisation in mind, I decided to make this post as another warm THANK-YOU to all those who have chosen to follow my journey as a writer.

One of the commonly occurring phrases is ‘Thank-you for caring about what others have to say’. To this I respond with, are we not all common human beings? Do we not all have some form of heartache, struggle, passion, strength and love? In a world forever changing, with each having a life of decisions and obstacles, why not band together and aid each others growth as successful beings? Indeed, I hope you all feel that my site is a space for sharing ideas and respecting opinions.

Do any of you have a theme request for a poem, prose or different written form? Perhaps you even request advice or aid? Feel free to express your thoughts.

Sincerely Jody

POETRY: Shout Out!

Shout Out!

If you have a voice, let it out!

Let it take the stage and shout!

 

Share your ideas with the world,

Be a woman not a girl.

 

Be a man, no not a boy,

Don’t let others make you their toy.

 

Take a stand and you will shine,

To have an opinion is not a crime!

 

Respect what others say and do,

Then ask them to let you be you.
