One Poem Every Day, Poetry

No. 150 “Where I’d Rather Be” – 25/4/16

I put my boots on to wade through the marshes of my mind,

With sticky bracken and fresh gum leaves of a kind.

I know I should have stuck around, seen the party to its end,

But honestly I’d rather catch butterflies and the road beyond the bend.

I never found any treasure as I trod the muddy way,

But when I look around at where I am, I’m glad I didn’t stay.

For that one room sort of crowded me, and pushed me out of myself,

Besides I’d rather climb the raging hills, than sit safely on a shelf.
