Everyone’s so busy

Everyone’s so busy,

Running around.

So much to do,

Reasons to be found.

To give life a purpose,

We’re taught as child.

It limits and controls us,

Keeps us weak and mild.

Perceptions belong

To others, not you.

They stop you from being,

Define what you do.

Freedom will come,

Just learn to let go.

Knowing less is more,

Will allow you to grow.

Good to be mindful,

Of games people play.

Though it’s only their ego

Getting in their way.


I’ve galloped on horses through forest and stream

I’ve laughed so much, I’ve ripped open a seam

I’ve witnessed wonders that left me spellbound

I’ve travelled this earth, flown the whole way around


I’ve cradled kuala’s, been licked by a chimp

I’ve swum in the ocean and caught my own shrimp

I’ve cuddled till I got cramp and still haven’t moved

I’ve danced in the moonlight; I’ve seriously grooved


I’ve eaten oranges and mangoes straight from the tree

I’ve learnt how to love and respect all that is me

I’ve baked, barbequed and cooked for my friends

I’ve had evenings that I wished would just never end


I’ve tried not to judge and allow everyone to belong

I’ve been out of my comfort zone and still remained strong

I’ve felt how wonderful it is to know love

I’ve known a love that fit me like a glove

I’m the driver of my bus, the journey is heartfelt

I check the rear mirror and buckle my belt

I’m the driver of my bus, the journey is heartfelt

My bus is unique, a paint job down the side

All the mod cons and the occasional guide


It hasn’t handled so well for ooh, quite a while

So I got an MOT, now I’m traveling in style

It’s taken forty years to really get the feel

Now I drive, eyes closed, with one hand on the wheel


The music’s on loud, with me singing along

It’s heaven on earth and where I belong

Please, come join me, it’s completely free

Is there anywhere else that you’d rather be?


We all have a bus, I don’t tell a lie…

Are you the driver of yours? I feel I must pry

The advice I can offer goes something like this

Become the driver of your bus and you will feel the bliss

A unique and odd woman, who lives by the sea

Let me be clear, my blog is all about me

A unique and odd woman, who lives by the sea

It’s intention is to charter my journey in life

It is not to offend, or to twist in the knife


I live my life by a code that I’ve always held dear

My poems may provoke and even bring on a tear

They are honest accounts of my heart and my mind

As I keep moving forward and become more aligned


I don’t judge and I ask you to please do the same

So we can move into a space, devoid of any blame

We are spiritual beings, having a human experience

With that in mind, always show a bit of lenience
