Yesterday, Annette called us to participate in today’s Random Acts of Poetry Day. You can leave your own poems whether old or new or you can share a poem written by someone else. It doesn’t matter as long as you share the magic of poetry. Please check out Annette’s post for more information.
In 2014 I published a poem book Enjoy Life! – Inspiring English Poems. It is available as an e-book. I thought I could put it a bit more into the center of attention and share a poem as an excerpt. I hope you like it. You can learn more about my published books on my page My Books.
Change in Life!
Often life sends us more lemons than a treat.
It’s not always easy to make lemonade from it.
In giving in to frustration your sadness will show,
That you bury your flame – although you don’t know.
At times you might think you’re a victim to all,
You believe these false thoughts and dig deeper in your hole.
You eagerly wish for happiness, for love’s eternal light.
But still believe that this works only when you get mercy from outside.
You’re not a helpless victim, not depending on outer will.
You are your own master with an amazing creative skill.
God will always be walking right by your side,
To realign when you’ve forgotten about your bright light.
But you have to believe that divinity’s in you.
Or you cut off the line and won’t get the clue.
Your belief and behavior is the key to the secrets of life.
So stop acting against you, stop edging your knife!
Pause for a moment, step back and get aware.
Take a pen, write your story, don’t doubt – just dare!
You can always change your life as a decision that you make.
No waiting for the world to change, no need to feel a lack.
But know: When you are keeping up same behaviors of your past,
You can’t expect a single change, at least not for your best.
‘Cause most of what destines your life is a result of how you’ve lived.
So change the way you look at things and life will be a gift.
Big thanks to Annette for the appeal!!
In Love and Light
