Anne Penman


Now


I’m walking the tightrope
Between who I was
And who I will become.
Who I am
Right now
Is no one and everyone
Flickering and changing
An endless kaleidoscope.
I look in the mirror
And see a familiar stranger
Staring back at me.
So unsure of herself
Trying to balance past and future
Afraid of the present
That she doesn’t understand.
My plans are for the woman
I hope I’ll become
My dreams are of the girl
I left behind.
I’m sitting on the brink
Of Change
Feeling torn in a thousand directions
And terrified of facing the
Unknown Now.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
