Freedom Anyone? - Poem by Shelley L Baxter

Money is not the be all
certainly is not the end all,
still financially free-we need to be!

When you find your purpose in life
Never let others sway you,
for they will never pay your bills
there will always be nay Sayers!

Without the bills to sustain us
without the coins to pay
many of our hopes and dreams
simply fade away…

Don’t let hopes die at 25
your body buried at 70,
for that is no way to live
you’ll miss life filled with plenty!

Unwritten books, music-potential!
Left on your scripts of Life!
Presents left unopened…
all cuz you did not choose Life!

    Shelly, I could not say it better than my two friends Dee and Melvina. Just grab every minute and live it to the full. Great poem. Top marks from me and thanks for sharing it.

    Enjoy what you can when you can, don't put off for tomorrow what you can do today, I agree with Dee, seize every moment as the saying goes 'life is short' so live, love and be happy.---Fabulous poem Shelley---Melvina--- (Report) Reply
