NaPoWriMo Day 30 – the final Day!!

YAY!! Go me!! (Bit of self-congratulation there, sorry!). I have actually done it :). I have written 30 new poems in 30 days and really enjoyed the challenge. I thought it would be fitting to end it with one about how I have learnt to see life. I would like to say thank you to everyone who has commented on any of my poems over the last month and I have also been really pleased to include the event as part of my Prose For Thought link. The poem is below and at the bottom of the post, I have also linked in the other 29 poems in case you would like to pop back and ready any of them. Enjoy!

The Things That I Have Learnt

Live life simply, honest and true

Isn’t that what we should do?

Wake each morning with a stride

Don’t hold back, enjoy the ride

Treat each day like it’s our last

Learn and then let go of the past

Things may come to test our worth

We can all get by with a bit of mirth

Learn from things, from our mistakes

The bigger the risk, the higher the stakes

Live your life without hate or regret

The bad things it’s better to forget

Since I have had my fingers burnt

These are the things that I have learnt
