I enjoy writing poems but like most of my other writings I’ve learned to hide them, sweep them under the rug, store them in a box behind the bookshelf. But I thought I’d try to change that by sharing one of my least favourite poems that I’ve written. I was taking a look at all that I had in my phone and this one just felt like the safest option because it’s neither so honest that I’d feel the need to bury it nor is it so profound that I’d fear others would dig it up and claim it as their own.
So here goes, it was titled ‘Moments of Life’ in my folder but I scratched that and its now ‘Your Life and Mine’:
To wait for your life to begin
That’s all folks, that’s the genie out of the lamp and you have no wishes except the one I have for you – live a little.
