when the World says give up

hope whispers try one more time…this is a saying we see pop up on Facebook now and then

Well my life has been blessed with many beautiful things from having lovely parents to giving birth to three great children, lots of lovely friends, etc … Sometimes I look at it and through these most important things I think what an awful mess it has been and become … circumstances, goals and dreams I had have been dashed away and you still have to pop your head up and “get on with it” as they say…. however tired of it all… you are…


when the World says give up

hope whispers try one more time

when you take two steps forward

then three steps back

just keep going!

its hard

this road

we travel


but every adversity will make us stronger

so hang on in and keep going for just a bit longer!

so many things to bash you down

people with that doubtful frown

saying no no no you just cant!

your done

when really there is a new door

and a new life has just begun


hope whispers in your ear

gives a smile and a little cheer

to spur you on

see the funny side

if not you will surely backslide

keep smiling

keep that heart a beat

don’t let your dreams deplete

keep on going to the very end

and don’t let them know

just defend

your fears

and many tears

behind that smile

if only a forceful trial

because very soon

that smile will become real

and you will feel

the most wonderful thing in the World

peace … love and happiness

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at
