Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – Freedom — May 25, 2016

Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – Freedom

Ronovan and Colleen have given us ‘freedom’ for our prompt this week in the Writer’s Quote Writing Challenge.  I have found a wonderful quote below that certainly sums up my thoughts on ‘freedom.’

Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.

–  Mahatma Gandhi

 

Freedom to choose what colour

I want my hair to be

Freedom to wear what clothes I like

For my personality!

Freedom to drive my car around

Wherever I want to go

Freedom to ring my friends up

When I’m feeling low

Freedom to go out to work

And earn my own money

Freedom to laugh freely

If I find something funny!

Freedom to go swimming

On a hot and sunny day

Freedom with the words I use

In what I write or say.

Freedom with the food I eat

Or if I choose to drink

Freedom to marry whom I want

Who cares what others think?

Freedom with sexuality

Whether straight or gay

Girl, boy, or transgender

I can choose to live my way!

Freedom to make mistakes

To learn and then move on

Freedom to teach others

On where we got it wrong!

 

Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – Obsession. — May 18, 2016

Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – Obsession.

I am taking part in Ronovan and Colleen’s Writers Quote Wednesday Challenge, and this week we have been given ‘obsession’ as our prompt word.
I felt that the following quote by sculptor, Henry Moore, pretty much sums up how I feel, and will be the subject of my poem.

“The creative habit is like a drug. The particular obsession changes, but the excitement, the thrill of your creation lasts.”

-Henry Moore

 

I have a bit of a problem

That I really ought to confess

Whenever I find a new hobby

I suddenly start to obsess!

First of all, it was sewing

I spent loads of money on that

But sadly, most of my creations

Were nothing better than tat!

I also get caught up in knitting

Stockpiling mountains of wool

With so many projects unfinished

I really am such a fool!

I had a go at card making

Buying up lots of supplies

I made a card for my daughter

After five or six tries!

And then I discovered blogging

As a way to cope with depression

I have slowly formed an addiction

And have yet another obsession!

#WQWWC Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – MAGIC — March 23, 2016

#WQWWC Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – MAGIC

Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.
Roald Dahl

This week for Colleen and Ron’s Writer’s Quote Wednesday challenge we have been given ‘magic’ as our prompt. I feel that there are many wondrous and magical things around us , if only we take the time to see it.

Magic is all around us

If only we choose to see.

The first cry of a baby

Delicious honey from a bee

The beauty of the countryside

In the flowers and the trees

The secret little kingdoms

That dwell beneath our seas

The sunrise and the sunset

Fluffy clouds that float on by

The aurora borealis-

That lightshow in the sky

The scientific breakthroughs

That helps us cure our sick

Magicians that keeps us guessing

At how they do their tricks

The glistening snowy landscape

Sparkling stars at night

Yes, magic is all around us

It makes our world so bright.

Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – “Wisdom” — March 16, 2016

Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – “Wisdom”

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

― Eleanor Roosevelt

Today for Colleen and Ron’s Writer’s quote Wednesday writing challenge, we are given the theme of wisdom. I think the above quote is so relevant to me and many others. We are so quick to put ourselves down or downplay our achievements as we feel that others have done so much better, and therefore we could never match up. This is my take on it:

I know that I have a bit of a complex

It is probably because I am shy

I worry that people think I am standoffish

Because I stand silently by

At many a social occasion

When everyone’s chatting away

I am desperately trying

To think of something to say

I don’t live in a fancy residence

I don’t drive the trendiest car

I am not a brilliant genius

I feel that I am below par

But wait, who says I’m not worth it?

It is me that causes myself grief

I need to forget about others

And work on my own self-belief!
