Forgive and accept, years more to come
Of love and life, laughter and sorrow.
So what if you landed on your bum,
Get up and back on your path to follow.
Give yourself a gentle kick in the posterior.
Soulful expression needs a soulful action plan.
Scrub, as you go along, your muddy interior
And remind yourself you aren’t the only one.
And when you face an occasional stumble,
Which will happen in this world of surprises –
Look back on these days, grateful and humble
To all the angels in their nutty disguises.
