Are you ready to smile?
How about a chuckle?
Say bye to the blues
and all your troubles
Forget your laundry
It never ends
So what’s the point
Call up your friends
it won’t forsake you
Its devotion is solid
and so very true
Shed the comfort coat
Give life a try
Reach with your “All”
You may touch the sky
Now dance around
for everyone to see
Don’t be shy
Be You, Be Free

That’s so sweet. 🙂
Thanks so much, Pete! 🙂 Have a great weekend!
This is such a delightful read. I really connected with your poem. Beautifully written. Lisa ❤
Aww..thanks so much, Lisa! I appreciate your very kind comment!
Lauren, what a delightful, lovely poem – it made me smile today, thank you! Love and hugs, Julie xoxox
Thanks, Julie, and I’m always glad to make you smile! Many hugs and much love to you, too! xoxoxo 🙂
I could definitely use some more freedom from technology.
I think we all could, Binky! (As I type on my computer) 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
Excellent!! Great uplifting poem for summer!
Aww..thanks, Christy, your comment means a lot coming from the metaphor Queen! xx
All I can be
is but me
and although I am free
but just like a tree, I am grounded with roots
branches they shoot and feel the breeze
birds come and nest on me
technology forces me to bear more fruits
its injected in me all things to improve
but..its now me .half natural half artificial
I am trying to smile
I am trying to breathe
I am trying to live
a bit by bit
Thanks for sharing these words about you! 🙂
Just Be – and when doing that – we’re Human Be-ing.
Hmmm, why did I write this —
Uplifting poem, Lauren, and thank you for sharing,
Well, I like Human Be-ing, Eric, so thanks for sharing and you’re welcome, too! 🙂 Happy Weekend!
Technology doesn’t mind the odd break! Good one!
It would be good for all of us, but it’s hard to break away, at times! Thanks, Joe! 🙂
A big smile from me too, Lauren for your joyful poem!
Aww…thanks so much, Marina! You made my day with your kind words and smile! xx
This is lovely Lauren. And something I think we all need to be aware of more often. Not enough time is spent just being. We seem to have to be doing or else we’re not valid
❤ HBL XXX!
Thanks, Chris, and I think you “nailed” it in your last line! HBL ♥ xoxoxo
Oh You are so right about Laundry, it really never ever ever ends 😦

We should all just run around in our birthday suits, cutting down the laundry loads! 🙂 Thanks, Soma, and wishing you a lovely weekend, my friend! xx

Aww…thanks, Robyn, it’s fun to write something magical and inspirational once in awhile, in the midst of all the pain and suffering! Hugs! 🙂
Pleasure. Glad I finally stumbled upon your page. 😉

ok I’m gona fly instead….
nice encouraging words Lauren
I’ve just left my laundry for another day hehehe
Sounds good to me, Eve, who wouldn’t want to fly? And I’m glad to hear you’ve moved on to more important things (like blogging) instead of doing laundry. It is so devoted that it waits for us to come back, no matter how long… 🙂 Thanks for commenting! xxx
Loved it Lauren. Freedom from technology really is a good thing now and again. When we were in our rustic cabin we could not get Wifi connection unless we wandered down the road. I felt no need to be hooked to my iphone. I did go for walks and was able to text our grown kidlets and that was important for my hubby and I. We had so much fun and I promise I will catch up with you this week. Love your beautiful poetry. Happy Tuesday. ♥
Thanks, Renee, and I know what you mean about needing a break from the computer! I’m glad you had a great time and I’ll talk to you later! Happy Tuesday, too! ♥
