A wad of spit and a ball of hope ...

I wish to spin a yarn of silken gold
a story most famous to behold
tender to the touch
and pure of heart
with both eyes closed
squeezed eyelids and such

but alas ….I am merely me
no golden world of liquid amber do I see
no forthright visions doth appear
to tantilise my pretty pink shell ear

I sit upon my throne of black
no forward glance I do afford…
no wee look back when I am bored
a huddle and a cuddle for merely me

for tomorrow weaves it’s magical spell
for all our tales remain left not to tell
a shiver here a tremble there
keep your chin up if you dare

for life is full of kicks and knocks
stuff ‘em in a bag with your hankies and socks
throw it on ya shoulder for all to see
yep you got it right ,it’s merely me…

a vision now of womanhood
doing everything like I know I should
a whispy breeze carries my thinkin’
my heartsong now is a sinkin’

filtered light sheds not my thought’s
blinding white light no justice sort
a monkey smiles on my back of wisdom
oh thank God I have clear vision

a clear blue horizon does appear
live life to the fullest without any fear
seek the new day as a blessed dawn
stretch most politely and give a yawn
consider each day as being reborn
enter the new day ….feel not forlorn

A wad of spit and a ball of hope ...
