I didn’t know what to write about for this month’s blog entry so I decided to just have a go at writing a little poem. Not that many people actually read my blog but if you do let me know what you think.
HOW ARE YOU?
When people ask ‘How are you?’
Should I tell them the truth?
Do they really want to know
Or is it just a polite question
That is asked on the go.
Should I answer in the same vein
And say ‘Fine thanks and you?’
Or should I tell them all my woes
And fears my deepest thoughts
And see where it all goes.
Some will listen with a sympathetic ear
And truly feel my pain
Others will listen but not really hear
Thinking of their own troubles
Their bodies tensing with the fear.
I think I agree it’s good to share
Whatever the response may be
They say ‘a problem shared is a problem halved’
And I believe this to be true
Because after sharing I am calmed.
But what of those that are all alone
With no listening ear or someone to trust
What should they do to ease their fears
Who should they turn to
Who sees their tears.
Let’s make the World a better place
It shouldn’t be hard to do
When you see a lonely one who knows not where to turn
Just ask them ‘How are you?’
And their fears you can burn.
See you in May.
Well you know I'm an Author, so you keep reading, and I will keep writing :)
