ISWG: JULY 2017:
HAPPY JULY EVERYONE:
FROM INSECURITY TO........ INTO PERSPECTIVE:
I've been a little insecure of late
Personal issues to name a few.
But I had a rude awakening yesterday,
About that I will relate to you.
I've been nursing a swollen foot,
Painful to say the least.
Looking at my foot now and then
Calling it the "Awful Beast".
I've also been by passing the mirror,
As a stranger looks back at me.
The lines of age are there alright
For everyone to see.
On inpulse yesterday I wrote a poem,
To someone I haven't seen in years.
Their reply shook me terribly,
Had me reduced to tears.
This person has undergone surgery,
For "The Big C"
Immediately I thought of my plight,
In comparrison needlessly.
So what if I've a swollen foot,
It may match my swollen head.?
So what if there are more lines on my face,
Each day as I arise from my bed ?
Too much self pity has taken place,
It goes with living on one's own.
But putting things into perspective,
In future these two issues won't get me down.
