THE ANSWER IS, DON’T HESITATE, at door or path and garden gate,

for out there lies, what’s drawing you, to warm your hands and tootsies through.

MAKE NO MISTAKE – You are clear in this to crawl away from life’s abyss, to lift your chin and enter in, to hear my voice say ‘come on in’


still for heavens gate has not the thrill until you finish all your tasks, set down by dreams and now you ask,

THE QUESTION THAT YOU POSE I PONDER, I cannot hear you any longer.

Ask the question I reply, DO WHAT YOU WANT BEFORE YOU DIE

SO HURRY DO NOT HESITATE, say what you will, do not be late, and climb that hill to say ‘Hello’ to all beneath and down below, and shout so loud you call her name then tell her this has been a game, of win or lose where needs have must, to clamber through the fields of trust.

YOU ASK THE QUESTION, WELL WHAT IS A LIFE A FAIRLY HONEST QUIZ. I grip your thought and shake my head enough to kick you out my bed, get up, get on, I cannot wait for ditherers who believe in fate.

NOTHING HAPPENS NOTHING MORE, GET OUT! GET OUT! THE BLOODY DOOR. ‘But what,’ I hear you say, ‘if it’s too late, I cannot get beyond the gate, the door is stiff, it’s cold outside, I’m safer here where I can hide.’ Be careful Sir, your feet are stuck in LIMBO LA LA LAND AND MUCK.

TO VENTURE TO THE GREAT UKNOWN WHERE GUIDANCE AND CAUTION ARE NOT SHOWN. Roll up your sleeves and push the gate, a fool would only hesitate.

Hiya, I am Lauren, a lifestyle traveller, writer and health Nerd. Due to lockdown I decided to get on with writing my blog and catching up with friends new and old. I believe we are one world that for most of us wants to promote peace and goodwill to each other, wherever you are in the world I wish you well. I hope we connect and share our stories.
