Thoughts penned as ‘A tangled Life’

I wrote this a while ago and have just come across it. I thought I’d share it with you:
What a tangled web can be created in search for our personal truth,                                                                                                Acceptance is much simpler although frequently lost on the youth.

Why do I aim to be someone that I’m not?   Just a creation in my mind?                                                                                                  Being myself is all that I need – I’m compassionate and kind.

For ourselves is all that we possess, all else is just on loan.                                                                                                                             Our fates are with the Universe, this earth is just our home.

By gratefully accepting our given role in life                                                                                                                                                      Will put an end to misery, discontentment, sadness, strife.

I now understand my path in life, who I was meant to be.                                                                                                                              The only role that I need play, is the one of being me.

So I’ll strive no longer, search no more for truth to become clear,                                                                                                                  It’s always been here, always will. I have the life that I hold dear.


Shakespeare I’m not!     However I love writing these simple tomes. They appear at the oddest times & are penned in the strangest of places, usually unearthed months, or years later ( as is the case here.) 

I believe that generally people worry too much about poetic correctness. Don’t! Sometimes writing something simple in rhyme helps make sense when the mind is a whirl of confusion. Simplicity. That’s the key to so many wonderful things.

Till next time,
