Which way

Which way
Up
Down
Go back
Turn around

Shhh
Too loud
Shhh
Don’t make a sound

Too loud
Too proud
Too independent
Too much money spent

You are right
You are wrong
You’re too stubborn
You’re too strong

Different ways
Little praise

Yours, mine
always define

Lose your mind
Always be kind

Look into my eyes
See where my beauty lies
See my beauty
Not in my face
Look to a deeper place
See my grace
In a deep deeper space
Look into my soul
That’s where you will find me

I have reached my fabulous 50s. Guess what, it’s okay. 20 years in the health and wellness industry. Educating men and women on the importance of nourishing their bodies with good food, moving with integrity, recharging their energy levels and empowering their minds. I love my job. A mother of two boys who are now men and my greatest achievement. A lover of words, an aspiring author with a book written and no idea where to go next, a poet who writes from the heart and her vulnerability. A foodie who loves to experiment, a salad lover , But not just your Every day salad, I throw in anything you can think of it ends up in my salad. I have a reputation for making the greatest weirdest salads around. As a total contradiction, I have a ridiculous sweet tooth. I rescue abandoned souls in the bodies of dogs, an animal lover, Who sometimes likes animals more than humans. My teacher in life, my mother never ceases to amaze me. I am one fortunate human being who is filled with gratitude for the life she lives.

    Look into my soul
    That’s where you will find me”

    1. Yes I read through a few in the middle of the night when I couldn’t sleep. Very much from the heart Ivor. I’m sorry for your loss. I am just across the water from you. I’m in Mornington. Look forward to reading more of your writing 🙏🏻
