Message In Stanza

Poetry and Musings

You may feel like at times you want to quit

You may feel like you lost your wit

But keep marching towards the finish line


We have all heard the when life gives you lemons saying

But it’s time to apply it to the messages we are conveying

Remember life also happens before the stars start to align


I remember as a child I thought adults had easy livelihoods

Looking back maybe my yesterdays were easier playing in the woods

Maybe we would regain our strength if we walked through the pine


Our busy worlds leave a hazy indention

A finger print on the soul of tension

It’s time we breathe in the nature divine

    The bit about adults having easy livelihoods especially resonated with me. I remember being jealous that my father never had ‘homework’…once his working day was over, the time was ‘free’ to do what he wanted.

    I guess it was the naivety of youth that I didn’t think of all the burdens that come with grown-up life – marriage and parenthood, in particular.

    Thank you for the reminder to connect to nature. Sometimes it’s so helpful to just be still in it and observe…take a break from everything that’s always running through our minds.

      I can relate, Yacoob too. I was envious of adults because they graduated from school. I hated school at the time and wanted to be done with it. But yes, you are right, marriage and work are time consuming as well.

      Yes, connect with nature as you can. It may be hard to get away but go on a hike or have a picnic if the weather permits. 🙂

      Blessings! 🙂
