It is Colleen’s turn this week to choose the prompt word for her and Ronovan’s Writer’s Quote on Wednesday Challenge, and she has come up with ‘rebirth.’ I found this wonderful quote by Anne Frank which I can very much relate to:
I can shake off everything as I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn
When I sit here writing
I can be who I want to be
I can go on long adventures
Or I could solve a mystery
The timid little person
Who is so very shy
Could become a mighty warrior
Or perhaps a Super Spy!
I could make myself a hero
Who always saves the day
Or perhaps an evil villain
Who gets more twisted every day.
What about a princess
Who is a stunning beauty?
Or a blowsy, brassy barmaid
Whose language is quite fruity!
A skittish, social butterfly
An astronaut in space
The chairman of a company
A woman of style and grace!
Yes, when I sit here writing
I can be who I want to be
Not this mousey little person
But a reborn, flawless Me!
Awesome. The joy of the imagination!
Yes, indeed Diana. It is so powerful. 🙂
Yes, it can take us wherever we want to go 🙂
I love this. I don’t think you have the slightest idea how many people admire you and see you so differently. I see you as bright, courageous, kind, and thoughtful. You are so creative.
Thank you so much Linda. You always see the best in people and give so much support and encouragement. 🙂
You are just such. Good person.
Thank you 🙂
Thank you so much Linda. You always look at the best in people and are so supportive 🙂
I lov you Sis! Just the way you are!!! 🙂
Thank you Sis. That means a lot xx
What a lovely poem! If only people could see themselves through the eyes of those who admire them. The quote is great too. Powerful combo. 🙂
Thank you again, Vashti. This one was quite personal for me 🙂
This is me!

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I am Judy, in my (very) early fifties and decided that life definitely gets more interesting as it goes on! I am a wife and a mum and have just finished University as a Registered Nurse, after having worked as an Associate Practitioner in the NHS. I am also a poet and the author of my debut book, 'Rhymes of the Times.' I love to laugh, and I love rhyming words too, so I joined the two together, and my book was born. I am currently working on another book in the series also. I am a prolific blogger and enjoy writing funny stories, anecdotes, and anything really that takes my fancy.
