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.

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.

SOCIAL SECTION: Do you have a dream?

A big hello to those who care to share your time with me,

Throughout my childhood, teenage years and up to now, I have always been known as a “social butterfly”. I would continuously seek to be apart of collaborative groups, such as being in an Orchestra performing in front of hundreds of fans, being in a small alternative music band, doing art classes, helping with the running of various volunteering events and being apart of mentoring teams.

While studying at University, I also work a part-time retail job, and enjoy every second of it! Am I the only one who loves having extensive conversations with costumers? It is astonishing the discussions that arise, when you take the time to really show interest in their lives.

On that note, it is true, that I love hearing other peoples stories. Thus, I decided to publish this social post, in order to get to know all of you. How are you? Do you have a growing passion for writing, educating, learning, or something else? What are your goals in life? How many goals have you already ticked off your list?

I am always willing to hear your story, because that is what my site promotes, freedom of speech and support for all.

Sincerely Jody
