2014 New Beginnings, A Brand New You




She is small, she is shy
With the biggest blue eyes
She doesn’t yell or shout
Free and happy to play out

Quiet and thoughtful
If needed is forceful
A teen without rebel
Coming out of her shell

Young and making friends
Smiles and welcome extends
Self belief in College years
Riches in life, sharing with peers

Qualified with a job to do
Fear and worries to get through
All new situations to fit into
Anxious, unsure with no clue

Self assured now, of knowing
A position of expertise upholding
To a professional with respect
At a cost of personal neglect

As years pass, she can’t see
The young lady, come to be
Reverts back to shy small girl
Misses the glimmer of the pearl

Life’s low ebb comes calling
Cling on, fight without falling
See the value of  persistence
Strive on and go the distance

She learns great lessons
To trusting her perceptions
Poise to keep with self caring
To a nurtured place of dwelling

To a belief in herself
Faith, hope, natural wealth
What she wants really to be
Is a combination of all that, is me

  10. You are such a good poet Janice, I love the poem. The New year has begun and I want you to attack it fervently and smile, because you are already a wonderful winner…here is a poem to sit on your desk so you can read each day or hang it on the wall! Spiritual prosperity will embrace you this year with abundant blessings…believe! One can be very successful in the world but spiritually bankrupt, and one can be spiritually wealthy, and become prosperous in the world. You have the tools, because you have already spoke and prayed, and you have a genuine and selfless heart, God is with you and you will overcome all walls that may come before you in your life…Here is your poem:

    A Touch

    Wake up in smiles
    Because you are alive
    As God permits you
    To see another day

    And welcome the sun
    Into your life
    As it brings a special
    Peace that stays

    Greet all that you meet
    With a pleasant hello
    And you will find that
    Today you are blessed

    As you see each one
    That you did meet
    Become alive with the
    Touch of God’s eternal

    Wendell A. Brown,

    Have a wonderfully blessed week ahead my sister! Hugs and blessings to you! People will see you a different way, and all will be much more positive in your life!

    • Hi Wendell
      Thank you for your kind comments and the poem. I am very grateful for your encouragement and positivity.
      This blog was started in August 2013 and I am new to both blogging and poetry.
      I learn along the way, and I am touched and feeling blessed with the kindness of others.
      Thank you again and thank you for your support.
      Blessings to you and yours too, Janice

  11. Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!
