A 'Brand New' You


Stood, browsing, in a bookshop, I heard someone call my name;
I recognised the person, but, somehow, she didn’t seem the same.
Apart from the fact that, she had changed the colour of her hair,
It was almost like looking at a whole new person, standing there.

She told me that, for our old company, she worked no longer.
Her spirit seemed enthused; her soul appeared much stronger.
Around her, glowed a much brighter and more positive aura;
Obviously, a change of scenery has done an awful lot for her.

I saw new maturity and wisdom in her pretty, youthful face.
I think, within her life’s journey, she’s now in a better place.
I almost couldn’t believe it was the same girl, stood before my eyes;
That she had changed so much, in such a short time, I felt surprised.

She seemed happier, healthier; her face was all aglow;
Very different from the young girl, who I used to know.
I can’t quite remember exactly when I saw her last,
But I’d say that, about twelve months have passed.

I think, once you are finally free from a depressive atmosphere,
You feel far more relaxed, and your heavy heart, fills with cheer.
It’s almost as if her whole personality, had been wrapped in tape,
But from those oppressive restraints, she has managed to escape.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
