Embracing Second Chance

Do you honestly think I’d trust you
After all you did to me
Do you think I’d take the time to walk
Over that old territory

Do you think I’d want to talk to you
To hold your hand again
To give a little more of me
Or friendship even feign

Do you think I’d go over old ground
Or stop to say hello
To brush under the carpet tiles
All history in one go

For what is done and what is said
Is etched in heart; in mind
So don’t expect me to forget
How you were so unkind

But know that I am so resolved
To turn my back on you
For all you were must dissipate
Be washed out in the blue

Or would that be the murky grey
The pit of wanton lies
Whatever, now I won’t return
And let the past just die

Take lessons learned and not digress
Be firm with foothold sure
To never let you seep back in
Be true to me once more

And then I’ll look to see the sun
Feel warmth against my face
And live life as it should be lived
A second chance embrace

Baggage

I bear some heavy baggage
A load you well might say
Like tortoise with a shell on back
To go from day to day

And yet it’s not so weighty
As it is part of me
Amassed in all those ups and downs
As part of history

A bag with sturdy handle
And wheels that roll so smooth
As time has given it the chance
To fit into my groove

And so this heavy luggage
Is friend now over foe
To carry down life’s winding path
Whilst going with the flow

That Mary Poppins Feeling

That Mary Poppins feeling
As west wind starts to blow
As time comes to pack bags again
Raise brolly and then go

For when all’s done and all is said
When every job’s been done
The call from chimney tops sing out
With elements of fun

And lure of pavement flagstones
Or ride on string of kite
Bids now the time to sail on clouds
Soar upwards to new heights

 

An Easter Message

When you wake up in the morning
And you feel a fresh new day
When you breathe in and remember
There is another way
When you think and dare to alter
The way you used to be
When you grapple with your mind’s thoughts
To use plasticity
When you push through and consider
That old means are no more
Then that’s the resurrection that
Ignites your inner core

For a pathway that’s well-trodden
That needs to deviate
And choices that one makes in life
To shift and relocate
Can be changed to make a difference
To push and surge on through
Moving boulders that reside within
And alter what you do
For rising to each challenge breaks
The mould in life and chain
For inside you, my friend, is where
You can be born again
