Giving UP on waiting!!!!

IMG_20170311_133919[1]She waits in the shadows of her life for the right time
To step step centre stage into her lime light
She waits for her body to be perfect and thin
For her words to be articulate, sassy and bright

She works and she fails to lose the weight required
Fretting and wailing she continues to hide
Her words still ill formed, she feels stupid and weak
Fear of the mocking, moves her to retreat

Boldly she wants to launch on to the stage
Yet she waits for things to be just perfect
The truth she discovers is that her life is playing out
Nothing is happening, it’s boring, cause’ she’s not out

The wisdom of age resonates the need to give up
There is no such moment of perfection to give a start
Instead she needs to launch and choose to begin
Just one step it takes and who knows where it wends

The play of her life is richer for her presence
There is laughter, there is sadness, but most of all pleasure
For the pursuit of her life brings with it the passions
The abundance of learning and knowing are discoveredIMG_20170311_133931[1]

The light is bright and the shadows draw long
If she looks about she sees her cheer squad egging her on
The fears have melted and she discovers the perfection
Of begin with the imperfect and with it the golden edging

Curvaceous and beautiful, fluid and clear
Her life resonates messages that those willing do hear
As time moves on the barriers to living are withdrawn
The flowing of life allows everything to resolve

As the curtains come down she bows and she grins
This being your own life is worth everything
The cheers and the applause drown out the not knowing
She stands tall and proud and draws upon simply living.


About R Congues

Funny enough, this blog has become the expression of my hopes, dreams, love and experiences. It came about because of the situation I discovered I was in, and I am delighted to see it grow and heal into something different: I am a parent of two children, one who has experienced severe anxiety that became disabling in all aspects of their life. I am a teacher of Maths, Science and Religious Education with a Masters in Special Needs Education; I am a qualified Reiki master, with a love of art and creative experience. I am not a professional in the fields of psychology or medicine. (If you are interested in these perspectives there are many internet sites to use.) I am simply expressing my experience in my own unique way.
