Sunday Scribblings " Second Chance"

This is my beautiful Mothers Day Gift
I love it! I am so lucky and grateful!
Sunday Scribblings "Second Chance"

Second Chance

Over the years I’ve been too strong
In passion, thought, opinion
Over the years I’ve been too weak
Trusting others, in discipline, and routine
Over the years I’ve used contemptible humor
To solve problems, win banters, defend myself
Over the years I’ve been too guarded about
Love, affection and emotion
Over the years I have been too passive
About boundaries, time, offensive behavior
Over the years I have been less forgiving
Of myself, my weight, my mistakes
Over the years I have been too passionate
About women and children’s rights, animals and food
Over the years I have been a codependent
For alcoholics, the mentally ill, the egotistical
Over the years I’ve been too generous
To the ungrateful, the dependent, the ego
If I had a second chance to do my youth over
I’d make better choices, be more active in action,
I’d grant myself more respect, more love, compassion,
Boundaries and dreams!
