Happy to be me by Sarah Revill

posted in: Poetry 2012 | 0

I’d have the strength to say hello
to smile at passers by
No need to hang my head in woe
No need to feel so shy

Id have the energy to dance
I’d laugh and sing all day
And if I caught you watching me
I’d do it anyway

I’d visit all my family
Invite them round for tea
And that dragging feeling
It won’t come and bother me

My children would be happy
as we run around the place
and they wouldnt have to see
the sadness on my face

I’d like to do the simplest task
Like chatting with a friend
someone who will lend an ear
and also comprehend

But most off all the thing i’d do
Is feel alive and free
and i’d tell myself each day
I’m happy to be me.
