Each new day #nationalpoetryday #messages #sayitwithapoem



Each new day
When we're out 
Others scowl
Eyes roll about
But I can't see
Those who frown
Or if they stare
If they're not keen
On my wheelchair
And to be honest
I don't care!

It's MY chair
It gets ME out
And in its yellow
It might shout
And not blend in
But why SHOULD I?

Should I hide
Or stay inside
Well, yes
Some say
But I WILL NOT 
Hide away

Not until 
I can't get out
Until I'm stuck
And even then
We'll find a way
Not sure how
But that's for 
Another day

Until then 
I will try
The best I can
To live my life
Coz this is just
How it must be.

It's not the way
That we had planned
But with my chair 
White stick in hand
I'll live my life
The way I hoped
With loved ones near
With as little fear
As we can muster

Though that's often hard
But disabled card
Gives access
To caring ones
So off we go
To try it out
Somewhere new
It might be nowt
Worth writing 
Home about
But what's to lose?

Every day's
A chance to say
Hi world
What you got for me?
What shall I see?
What shall we do?

My vision's just
As huge as ever
Physical limits never
Seem to stop the mind
In it's dreaming
Nor stop God
In His leading
Of my life
In my calling
So I'll just
Keep on following
Don't know where
It is going
But the rowers
Keep on rowing
We've no earthly
Way of knowing
What will come
Or what is going
To happen.

In fact
This could be you
Ten years from now
Or only a few
Months away.
What would YOU say
If YOU could see
What will be
Would you change
Your life
Or will your life 
Change you
What should you 
Do today
What have you 
Delayed

Take the bull
By the horns
Hold on tight
And charge
Don't hold back
Until 
You lack
The choice
And even then
Rejoice
Whilst you have
A voice
Rejoice
In each new day
