Treasure Island

A Coffee Morning!

Chatter and activity!
Laughter and controlled pain!
Effort to please the ones I love!
Wishing I was in bed asleep!

Yet all around me the people chatter!
Telling stories of suffering and encouragement!
Different issues and footsteps!
Printed to make a person's life story!

Will I narrate my own footprints?
To change someone else's life.
To encourage another person.
To pull another from the edge!

Are my footprints in the sand?
Where all can see where I walked for a while!
Where all can find the charted pathway to my life!
Or are they printed on a rock?

I have to determine who I am.
Should I let issues shape who I am?
I am the person that will never change.
When situations and conditions change.

I will change the chart of my life.
To imprint my footsteps in the sand.
To make another find their way.
A path to a better life!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
