Italian proverb. " Home, my own home, tiny though thou be, to me thou seemest an abbey."

My Want Today

Here I am today

Some new ways learned

To try and stay calm

And not crash and burn

Still ways to go

To improve my life

And not pick up a beer

It’ll surely lead to strife

Sit back, take a breath

Something I’ve never done

Learning not to stress

A new life has begun

I’ll go and throw a line

It’s a beautiful day

The breeze in my face

Bad memories fade away

It’s comin’ on dark

I didn’t know the time

Home to cook a feed

And settle for the night

My want for the day

Is embedded in my heart

Don’t stuff up the day


Tomorrow’s a new start.

THANKS TO B Robertson, Oolong House, Nowra, NSW
