The Days With You – The Days To Come
‘Twixt rising moon and setting sun,
The days with you, the days to come.
The dreams we’ll build within these walls;
It is with you I’ll share it all.

The days of wonder, summer haze,
The winter warmth, crisp sunshine rays.
From frosted morn to rainy season,
Love loves them all. It finds a reason.

Beneath the storm clouds gloom and grey
Together we will face each day
And in each other’s arms so tight
We’ll hold each other through the night.

And so as one, we’ll group together
To face the world, a team forever.
A match well made, a deal well done.
The days with you, the days to come.

Just About Managing | A Poem

Just about managing, what a sweet little phrase
Coined by the powers, the leaders, the Mays.
The ones without experience of this sort of strife
Because of their superior method for getting through life.

Just about managing sounds like things are okay
Like it’s tough, but you know, you can get through the day.
But look a little closer and what might you see?
That just about managing is the worst place to be.

It’s pay day to day pay, the last quid in your purse.
It’s retail, hospitality, it’s being a nurse
Or a teacher, or childminder; no matter what you do
If you’re just about managing, they’re coming for you.

It’s studying for years for an extra pound an hour.
It’s doing what you’re told by the ones who are in power.
It’s wishing for a break, but likely having none at all.
It’s continually robbing Peter so that you can pay Paul.

It’s the mums and the dads working opposite shifts,
Trying to string their tightropes over widening political rifts.
It’s having no security. You’re exhausted and alone
And no amount of working harder will help you own your own home.

It’s rents higher than mortgages and living on beans
Being told it’s your fault costs are higher than means.
It’s energy poverty, hoping night falls before the meter.
It’s avoiding Paul’s calls, to help stave off Peter.

It’s going without dinner so the kids have enough to eat
Or sharing a portion of chips and it being a real treat.
It’s dreading the weekly shop and living on BOGOF deals
Maybe full of sugar and fat, but that’s better than hunger feels.

It’s daily anxiety and compounded constant stress,
Defined as the working poor, the perennial depressed.
When you’re just about managing , it only takes one straw to break you;
It’s a hole in your sole but you just have to make do.

Just about managing. Just about failing.
Just about defeated. Just about staying in.
Just about exisiting. Just about pride.
Just about monotony and feeling dead inside.

It’s foodbank referrals, it’s rising unrest.
It’s sanctions for those deemed not doing their best.
It’s a failing health service for a nation that’s sick.
It’s wishing for a way out that is painless and quick.

It’s government terminology to justify this position;
Those ‘solving’ child poverty by merely changing the definition.
It’s a leadership out of touch, without empathy or respect.
It’s apathetic authority, but then, what should we expect.

Why should they care for text-book underachievers?
It’s not their job to care for, to house or to feed us.
They’re here to set the goalposts, to teach us a lesson
But fall by the wayside, they’ll take that as a blessing.

It might sound extreme, but just peel back the layers
It’s all about the game and to hell with the players.
When you’re just about managing, things always come undone
When you realise you’re on a ladder that only has one rung.

Just About Managing is a poem by Ms Moem.

Let Love Shout Loudest

Let Love Shout Loudest - a poem by English poet Ms Moem @msmoem for more poems and poetry visit http://www.msmoem.com

Let Love Shout Loudest

Let love shout loudest.
Let it surround us and consume.
Let it lift the heaviest hearts.
Let it brighten the darkest room
And as love breeds into infinity,
Let it bask in sun and moon.
May love weather every storm that breaks,
Enduring through the gloom.

Let love fortify the aged.
Let us teach it to our young.
Let love unite generations
And be passed to those to come.

Let love not be legend.
Let it be the way we live.
Let love be the gift;
We are ALL hardwired to give.

Let love build our cities.
Let love be our law.
Let love be the answer
To all knocks at the door.

Love tenderly, wholeheartedly;
Let it float upon the breeze.
Let it ripple lakes and waterways
And rustle through the trees.

Let love permeate the soil.
Let love pave the streets.
Let love be a home for all.
Let love be our heart beat.

Love passionately, love purely,
With purpose, without condition.
When the world is blinded
Let love restore its vision.

Let love be the question and also the reply.
May love not be disheartened, no matter who may try.
Let love be a comfort for the broken and weak.
Let love be the language that every soul speaks.

Let love be the melody that our spirits sing.

Let us live love.
Let love be the thing.

Let Love Shout Loudest is poem by English poet, Ms Moem.

Where I’ll Always Be – Wedding Poetry

Where I’ll Always Be

I could never hope to find
Someone who fits me better.
I swear I made a wish and it
Was answered to the letter.
I hope that you feel just the same.
I think I know you do.
I swear I had a dream one night
And now it’s coming true.
You’re all I ever wanted
And you’re all I ever will.
My love in its happy place
And growing greater still.
As every day I spend with you
I see more that I like.
You could make the greyest day
Feel sunny, warm and bright.
You’re such a special person
And you mean the world to me.
So any time or place you are,
That’s where I’ll always be.

Aftershocks – When I Am Gone | Poem

Aftershocks When I Am Gone - poem by Ms Moem. @MsMoem - This poem is suitable for use as a funeral poem or reading.

Aftershocks – When I Am Gone

An earthquake is a grand event
It changes land and life.
The aftershocks that follow
Cause as much, if not more, strife.

A thunderclap will rumble
After lightning strikes the ground.
Its laser devastation
Can be heard for miles around.

First comes the impact,
Next comes the pain.
It’s impossible to stay dry
When faced with driving rain.

But the sun still shines beyond our sights.
Though rain clouds stay a- while
So when your raindrops hit the ground
Please think of me and smile.

Aftershocks – When I Am Gone – poem written by Ms Moem.

This poem is suitable for use as a reading for a funeral.

Another of my funeral poems is ‘I Am Your Star‘.

Etsy Entrepreneurship

So, I am a few months into my Etsy Entrepreneurship journey now. I have made 9 sales so far.

etsy entrepreneurship - Ms Moem poet, hand letterer, artist

While this isn’t a landslide amount of sales, I am a firm believer in slow and steady wins the race. And in terms of race length, this is a marathon and not a sprint.

I am looking forward to my next sale, which will take me into double figures.

For now, I’m all about analysing what is working best and then hopefully working towards making more of that!

It is always a great privilege to be able to make money doing something you love. If you have a hobby or craft that you would like to try and make a little money from, why not consider opening your own etsy store? If you use the following link, we will both get 40 free listings – this means that is effectively free to get going. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!

If you open your own etsy store, do let me know, so I can come and check out your goodies!

So, I hope hearing about my etsy entrepreneurship adventure is either interesting, or inspires you to get started yourself!
