APRIL~ ”POEM-A-DAY”~DAY TWENTY-ONE~ “WHAT YOU ARE” and/or “WHAT YOU ARE NOT” Poem::

For today’s prompt, we’re dealing with our third “Two for Tuesday” prompt(s):

Write a “what you are” poem, or…
Write a “what you are not” poem.
For instance, you may be a teacher, a student, brave, scared, a person, an animal, a plant, and well, wherever this one takes you. Or not, of course.

WE ARE US

by John Yeo

I am the one who forgets

To check the clock on the wall.

Working away with interest

On the magic of the moment.

 

I am the one who reflects

On many areas of life,

Watching change unfold

Recording my thoughts with care.

 

I am one who never rejects

Change or new situations,

I welcome and nourish the chance

To give and never look back.

 

I am able to work and relax

A follower, never the leader,

I follow my instincts and we share

Our future, now you are there.

 

I am a husband without regrets

Enjoying this love we share.

We shrug off cares and worldly strife,

Devoted to each other for life.
