Feeling Small

When I’m feeling sad and small
I curl up in a little ball
And wish the watching world away
I close my eyes and quietly say:
No one knows and no one cares
And I am no one after all

When I’m feeling just so-so
I cast adrift and let it flow
And watch the tide within the bay
I look across the waves and say:
Someone sees and someone shares
And I am someone in the know

When I’m feeling top and tall
I spread my arms to welcome all
And greet each brand new dawning day
I lift my eyes and boldly say:
One who soars is one who dares
And I am one and I am all

Seize the Day: Favourite Inspirational Poems

This creative collection, now in its 3rd edition, brings together favourite inspirational poems by Wayne Visser. The anthology takes us on a journey through the peaks and troughs of life, celebrating the indomitable human spirit.. It includes many old favourites like “Poets Must Be” and “Chasing the Blue”, as well as brand new poems like “The Writer” and “Making Ripples”. Sages through the ages wisely say: / Carpe Diem – seize the dawning day / Oh, would that I could assuage that thirst / But the day conspires to seize me first! / With the hurry and scurry / Of home’s frantic flurry / And the hustle and bustle / Of work’s tangled tussle. Buy the paper book / Buy the e-book.
