    I was clearing out my spare room today and I found my poetry book from a number of years ago. I was reading this one that I wrote on 26/11/1997. I just wanted to share it cos when I wrote it I didn't think much of it but reading it now it seemed poignant.

    Living Life

    Stop Running
    Stand still
    Look around you
    Think and feel

    Clarity of vision
    Knowing who cares
    For every moment
    Feel glad you are there

    Look to the future
    Live for the day
    Don't regret a moment
    Have hope and faith

    Life is not simple
    Sometimes you are scared
    But think of tomorrow
    And hang on in there.

    Hope you like it :) (never shown anyone my poetry before!!)

    That's what I thought when I read it Lady, it felt like I'd wrote it for this time in my life but I hadn't. I was struggling when I wrote it with chronic fatigue syndrome and my poetry helped me stay positive... I guess life is a struggle so the poem travels time well :)

    and thanks for your nice comments (I was a bit scared!!)
