I got a lovely email from a lady who wanted to know if I thought it was worth her while to publish some books she’d written and to try and make a go of making poetry her living.
I’m not really a careers advisor, so I decided that the best response would be a poem. Here it is! What do you think?
A Word Of Encouragement
When you’re down on your luck
And your life seems a mess,
But you’ve got a simmering urge
That you long to put to the test;
You can make it your focus
To see where it takes you.
It’s not following your dreams
That eventually breaks you.
I can’t tell you your fortune
Or how much you’ll make
Nor advise if this path
Is the right one to take
But if you never try
Then you won’t ever know.
Your future’s in your hands
So just give it a go!
A Word Of Encouragement is a poem written by Ms Moem.

Designed For Life
Be your own inspiration!
When times seem bleak or tough,
When you’re looking for motivation
Or proof that you are enough.
You trust your individual components;
Your eyes, your fingers, your brain.
You know those parts do what they’re meant to do.
See your whole being as the same!
Know there is strength inside you.
Know with each beat of your heart
That you can do what you are meant to do;
All you have to do is start.
Designed For Life is a short poem written by Ms Moem.
Take a moment
once in a while
pause to breathe
reflect and smile.
Think happy thoughts
and look around.
Feel the sun on your face,
your feet on the ground.
Count the stars.
Examine the sky.
Catch the rain.
Watch birds fly.
Make meaning from silence.
Let words lift your soul.
Explore every facet
of your wonderful whole.
Take a moment
to count your wins.
Smell the coffee.
Drink it in.
Take A Moment is a short poem written by Ms Moem.
