Good morning and a happy new year.

From my poetry book Flowers do speak.




THE CHANGE


To change the hardest thing
to change I fear to think.


Will be my heart and mind
or will I be smart and kind,
must change my ways and says,
or must I be we instead of me.


To change the hardest thing,
to change where to begin.
To change the hardest thing,
to change I fear to think.


A yes sir they want me to be,
a yes sir to let me free.
A yes sir for the society,
a yes sir with no honesty.


Will be my life and style
or just my wife and time.
Will change my home and work
what must I do to learn the homework.

Ha ha a lovely poem. They just love to heap a to do list on us. I feel there is nothing to do if I choose to just be.

"must I be we instead of me."

This is such an interesting question.
