Poem: Plans For 2019

Image result for 2019

 

 

 

2019 …

 

I have got plans

to stand up for what I believe in

against the ‘poor me’ machine,

to finish all those books I planned

on writing one of these days,

to listen to the albums I haven’t

put on yet,

read the books I haven’t read yet,

to finish my ECDL,

make something of myself,

help those in need,

be there as usual for the family

who are always there for me,

maybe fall in love

or have a bit of a fling

but can you plan such things?

Make some new friends,

what’s not to like?

Hehe, got to be confident I suppose.

Live each day,

take it one day at a time,

write my blog,

make myself more wiser,

more understanding,

continue being compassionate.

 

 

Sometimes life has so much fear,

gotta try to let go of that shit,

so what if I ain’t liked by some,

sure that’s always the way,

you nearly 30 girl,

work it out you know.

Listen to those with more life experience

but ignore the older who patronise you,

listen to those younger who have still that zest

but don’t let them make you feel old,

raise a glass with the sister,

give the mother a kiss on the cheek,

remember your wonderful late dad and dog

and your sister’s dog and all those late loved ones

and be you girl

because you ain’t perfect

but you’re alright

and alright ain’t so bad,

sure isn’t that what we all are?

 

 

2019 has arrived! Happy New Year to you all and your loved ones! May all of the dreams and hopes that you and your loved ones desire come through in 2019. After all we are all trying our best and we got to wish each other the best. As we start this new year I want to take a moment to thank you all for supporting Culture Vulture Express in whatever way you have done so since it began. I can never put into words how much I appreciate your support. To some people their blog is their blog, to me like many others it’s it’s their baby. I love writing and I love the beauty of expressing the things as an introvert I can’t do fantastically in everyday life and by your support you make my dreams come true every day as I get to do what I love and people actually like it, relate to it and connect to it and for a writer/blogger there is no better gift for New Year or anytime so thank you so very much. Be happy, be safe and be filled with peace. Enjoy your early part of the New Year and I will be back with a new post very much. Thank you so so much to each and every one of you. 🙂

Poem: The Future

Image result for 2019

 

What does the future hold?

The million Euro question

or whatever your currency is.

They say your future is out there,

you’ve just got to find it,

to be brave enough to find it,

sometimes I begin to wonder

but maybe I’m just not brave enough.

 

 

I’m impatient,

I’m passionate,

you judge me

and feel that judgement

right back,

I’m fiery,

slightly at least,

I’m a workaholic,

I fall in love too easily,

I smoke like a trooper …

 

 

But I love life,

I love people being happy,

I love peoples’ lives not being screwed with,

I believe in a simple version of humanity

where we love and care

and I got no time for those who don’t.

I got my insecurities,

I got my belief in my talents,

I try my best,

do I do enough?

 

Can people take my baggage?

Or my introvertness?

The way I find it easier to write it down

than to say it?

Yes, I’m slightly hard work

and I’m nervous sometimes

but aren’t you too?

Why do we forget that about each other?

Is it because we’re wrapped up in ourselves?

Or is it because we live our own life everyday

and it’s hard to adjust?

 

 

It’s a New Year.

We’ve got yet another chance

to try to understand what we are meant to be doing,

to understand this game called life,

we may forget in the New Year,

revert to old patterns

but hopefully not.

It’s not always easy,

I haven’t the life experience

even at 28 that some people have

so maybe things don’t always turn out perfect.

I wear my heart on my sleeve

because like me not everyone

has their future fully realised

and I want them to know they aren’t alone

and that’s nothing to be ashamed of

but this is a new year,

get out there,

life is short,

does it matter?

Start a revolution, fall in love, both,

what does it matter if they think you’re a nut?,

eat a Fruit and Nut and smile,

just have no regrets,

just don’t say ‘I shouldve …’

or ‘Someday I’ll …’,

we all got our own issues,

our own dreams,

our own hopes,

maybe 2019 is the time to turn at least

some of those dreams and hopes into a reality.

 

 

Happy New Year to you and all your loved ones. I hope 2019 is the year for you and those you love that you all dream it will be. 🙂
