I have good health of that I am sure.
I have some wealth, by that I mean I am not poor.
I get up each day with a smile on my face.
I am grateful for the home we call “our place”.
I love the man with whom I share my life.
I am happy to wear his ring and be called his Wife.
I am honest, fun and kind to be with.
I am grateful for the life I live.
I have not had to struggle because “I am white”.
I have not defended someone’s political cause or plight.
I have not smoked ganga, weed or popped pills.

I have not been stopped by the Police in the street.
Although I have received a ticket for exceeding speed.
I have not competed at sports with the best.
I have not taken part in a Cricket Test.
I have smoked cigarettes.
Failed at what sometimes seemed like the simplest of tests.
I like a drink or maybe two, of wine, beer, white rum and gin.
I like romantic novels heroes with muscles and a sexy grin.
I love music of all types, rock and roll, country, jazz and blues.
Most mornings I awake and hit the alarm button to snooze.

I get the job done and, in a race,I have never been placed last.
I like to write Poems of the environment I observe.
I like a meal that is preceeded by Hors D’oerves.
I have not been sentenced to time inside.
I have not had to change my hair colour, wear a wig or hide.
I have learnt that life comes in all shapes and sizes.
Life comes in many different forms and guises.
The wisest one, is the one that sees.
It’s fine to make mistakes, it’s fine to be me.
I am the sum of all my parts.
As long as I remain faithful to what is in my heart.
Live the life you want.
Be the person you want to be.
Life is a gift and it is never too late.
Take your life in your hands be the master of your own fate.
Do not look back with regrets, look forward with hope and cheer.
Take your life in your hand, you have the power to change, the power to improve, the power to steer.
You are the Captain of your own ship.
