UNCERTAINTIES - (The Passion Within)
Where am I going?
What am I doing?
Why is my mind in overdrive?
Do I have to be going somewhere?
Do I have to be doing something?
Why can't I stop worrying?
STOP! STOP! STOP!
I only have this moment.
Here and now, nothing else.
No past, no future, just now.
Time is a tyrant, pushing us on,
work, achievement, always doing.
Appointments, meetings constant analysing.
Why can't I just be?
Learn to love me, be responsible for me.
Learn forgiveness, the key to set me free.
Why am I worried about another lockdown?
I am using my common sense,
I am happy to stay at home.
I write poetry and stories
because that is my passion!
I have written a novel because it was within.
Can I stop writing? I could,
but don't want to, creativity is
my life blood, my raison d'étre.
Publishing my poetry and my novel
is a dream that will come true.
Is that enough? Yes, I believe it is.
At last, calm restored,
I am only responsible for my actions
Lockdown, knockdown, it gives me more writing time!
