Keep Paddling

when i was little
i love puddles
lots of fun
lots of cuddles
with me mum
with me dad
lots of laughter to be had
as i grew the rain did fall
but i had an umbrella after all
when rain drops fell
i would put it up high
to dispel all those raindrops from the sky
life got tougher
i began to swim
dont know how much i could take in
head above water
is what i should do
i really had a difficult view
could just swim it was a task
and there were lots of questions to be asked
life once simple turned quite hard it seemed
and i wading up to my chin
and was doomed it deemed
no hope to glean
but upstream fast i kept paddling
with my heart beating fast it was all quite madding
water has got deeper day by day
and i know it will level out one day
as life goes on the stream can run faster
it will be ok
or a perfect disaster
i have to say
i think i will find my peace quite soon
as i step in the puddle
and remember the cuddle
from me mum and me dad
so much fun to be had
in the future it seems
bright lights in sight
so will swim to them with all my might

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
