Gratitude Positive living! Work study life balance

Reflecting, thinking…

As we mark World Poetry Day 2023

I reflect on life’s experiences recently.

I have not blogged, vlogged or shared creatively.

For some time now, I’ve searched for inspiration to ignite my flow.

Work-study-life juggling have not been an easy road.

Still, I live in hope that soon I’ll find.

A spring-inspired theme that captures my mind.

Then, I will put pen to paper, put mic to lips.

Maybe even find a reason to do a dance and shake my hips.

Don’t worry, I know where my talents lie.

So, for now, I’ll stick with what I know well: inspiring others to fly.

Fly like the eagles they were meant to be.

Instead of being distracted by pigeons who circle knowingly.

The reason I love eagles so?

It’s because they silently display their strength and don’t make a show.

So, as we celebrate World Poetry Day 2023

Join me in saying, “let’s go and be the best we can be.” 😊😊😅

From my healing art of poetry series 2023! 👌🏽❤️🙌🏽
