Practicality vs. Passion

Dear reader, what am I to do?
Be practical? Or follow my passion?
I’ve done some self-discovery
(After all, it’s quite the fashion).

Oh, giving up the day job
Would be a dream come true
To write what I like (and get paid)
Well, that’s what I’d love to do!

Till a big break comes along
Sadly, a hobby this must stay
(I do need the reassurance
Of receiving regular pay!).

But who out there has done it?
Taken a leap, despite the doubt?
Feel free to share your wisdom
Tell me, how’s it working out?

Westeros or Writing?

I’ve done little writing of late
But you see, there is a reason
I’ve been re-watching Game of Thrones
Every episode, of every season.

I’m reliving all the scheming
The battles and beheadings
Secret deals, blood magic
And, of course, the weddings.

My re-watch has almost ended
Season Eight will soon be here
It’s sure to bring more drama
I may even shed a tear…

After the final credits have rolled
I’ll surely get back to writing
Although… I have yet to finish
Season Five of Vikings! 🤔

A Work Mother

‘Twas my birthday recently
The big 5-0 is drawing near
I’m an “oldie” where I work
That much is very clear!

My colleagues are barely 20
(You can do the sums…)
Just the other day, they said
“You could be our Mum!”

I hope I can be useful, and
Make them feel inspired
I just wish I had their energy
Instead of feeling tired!

Tea?

I like a coffee now and then
But I drink much more tea
I like it made a certain way
Oh, my children pick on me!

Milk in first, I take it weak
You should hear my daughter
“Mum, that’s not a cup of tea
What you’ve got is dirty water!”

The taunting goes on and on
How I wish it would stop…
“Mum doesn’t dunk her tea bags
She waves them over the top!”

They always say they’re joking
But, I just don’t buy it…
So, I’ll take my cup of tea
And go sit somewhere quiet!
