You'll Do Poem by Ruby Honeytip

You'll Do

Rating: 4.8

I think I realised long ago,
There are no plans for me
There will be no fanfare as I pass through
My meat pie destiny.
There are no Nobel Prizes,
To proclaim my importance by,
No Golden Globes as doorstops,
No private jet from which I fly.
The world did not get curious
Or ponder what I would become
Turns out I'm just a plain Jane girl
With a slightly enlarged bum.
And there you are my Dearest,
With equally echoed dreams,
Reverberating behind you,
With all you could have been.
There are no sun filled yacht trips,
Through the Caribbean sea,
No cocktails in the parlour,
For the likes of you and me.
We haven't burnt our bridges,
For we never built them at the start,
So it looks like we'll be bored to death,
Until the day we part.
Romance is really not my thing
Just between me and you,
But it's with a heartfelt up and down
That I look at ya and think 'You'll do'

Wonderful to read Lisa and i love the humour in this and of course the enlarged BUM, that deserves a 10. Well done. Trying to give it a 10 but it will not allow? HELP

Sensitive observations, and a well written interpretation. It's not you, and it's not me. Not a trace of beige on our ceilings :)

Love that title-it sums if all up very well. Your mix of humor with pathos was very clever. Just a good old down to earth write and well done.

Hi, Ruby, again. Do you check your inbox? Because I sent you an email. Second, this is a great poem, and I agree with Lyn.10/10 And last of all, I have done a new poem called 'Not A Single Tear', and I invite you to read it, as well as other people that visit this poem. Thanks, Tiegan.

This is an awsome read, every line resonates with complete truth, its funny and heart breaking at the same time, most of us never set our goals high enough to live, but who needs rewards when the best thing is to live with integrity and tenacity. Worth a 10
