WHAT I DISCOVERED YESTERDAY:
Whilst out walking along our lovely beach.
I sat and paused for a little while.
There were children enjoying the springtime sun.
On their faces a radiant beaming smile.
I sat there and thought as I looked out to sea.
Thoughts of bygone life went by.
Thinking of what to do with my life,
As being entirely on my ownsome am I.
I suddenly realised I was not the same me.
Certainly not for the better.
I have been consumed with tears and strife.
If I cry anymore I'd get wetter.
I also realised I was not kind to myself.
Starting at my hair....what a mess.
One has to be kind to one's own mind and body,
I saw the light now I confess.
My plan of action commenced immediately.
Got up and shook myself down.
Put a smile on my lonely face.
Away with that permanant frown.
Well I ended the day at the hairdressers,
A good cut and colour the order of the day.
To be kind to others who are in need,
First one has to be kind to yourself I say.
From a very HONEST YVONNE.
