Catching Up With Time

  
Hey guys, 

Teebabsy’s here ūüėä

This poem was inspired by Titilope Shonuga ( IG- @deartitilope). She’s an amazing poet that inspires me daily. 

She ran an exercise on her page & this is so late but I gave it a go. It’s a poem to my future self. 

Enjoy

********************

Are you genuinely happy?

Do you smile often? Not the masked ones but those deep felt that bring out your dimples

Do you still snort when you laugh in a room then leave embarrassed when all eyes are upon you?

Did you finally take that career risk with your new found “love”?

Starting must’ve been quite difficult but you made it right?

Did you finally play golf on a Monday morning? 

Travelling the world was top on your list, how much fun did you have? 

I hope you never settled for less than you deserved 

I hope life never made you bitter 

Tell me, Was Falling in love with him the best decision you made?

Was he worth letting go of all the pain and the hurt? 

Marriage wasn’t as scary as you thought now, was it? 

Waking up to the love of your life each morning, was it all you had imagined or even much more? 

Does he remind you daily that you’re just right for him?

Motherhood sure has grown on you. Did you finally have your retirement baby? 

How beautiful was the pitter patter of tiny feet on your kitchen floor? 

Did you finally give your mum and dad all you had dreamed about? 

Looking back, are what ifs a concept very foreign?

You took life by its lapels I hope 

Your dreams did come true, didn’t they? See how important a factor God & faith were.

How does it feel to have your children surround your table? 

Truly and deeply I pray you were loved 

Above all, I hope you realised YOU had always been GOOD enough.

XOXO

With Sugary Love….

#30ShadesOfGrateful – Day 22

I went to a party,
And remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink, Mom
So I had a sprite instead.
I felt proud of myself,
The way you said I would,
That I didn’t drink and drive,
Though some friends said I should.
I made a healthy choice,
And your advice to me was right,
The party finally ended,
And the kids drove out of sight.
I got into my car,
Sure to get home in one piece,
I never knew what was coming, Mom
Something I expected least.
Now I’m lying on the pavement,
And I hear the policeman say,
The kid that caused this wreck was drunk,
Mom, his voice seems far away.
My own blood’s all around me,
As I try hard not to cry.
I can hear the paramedic say,
This girl is going to die.
I’m sure the guy had no idea,
While he was flying high,
Because he chose to drink and drive,
Now I would have to die.
So why do people do it, Mom
Knowing that it ruins lives?
And now the pain is cutting me,
Like a hundred stabbing knives.
Tell sister not to be afraid,
Tell daddy to be brave,
And when I go to heaven,
Put Daddy’s Girl on my grave.
Someone should have taught him,
That its wrong to drink and drive.
Maybe if his parents had,
I’d still be alive.
My breath is getting shorter, Mom
I’m getting really scared.
These are my final moments,
And I’m so unprepared.
I wish that you could hold me Mom,
As I lie here and die.
I wish that I could say, “I love you, Mom!”
So I love you and good-bye.

#30ShadesOfGrateful – Day 17

It`s funny how hello always ends with a goodbye,
it`s funny how good memories can start to make you cry.
It`s funny how forever never really seems to last,
it`s funny how much you`d lose if you forgot about your past.
It`s funny how friends can just leave you when you`re down,
it`s funny how when you need someone they`re never around.
It`s funny how people change and think they`re so much better,
it`s funny how many lies can be packed in one “love letter”.
It`s funny how people forgive even though they can’t forget,
it`s funny how one night can contain so much regret.
It`s funny how ironic life turns out to be
but the funniest part of all, none of that`s funny to me.
