Is this the time?

once-upon-a-time-719174_1920Is this the time? I ask myself.

Is this the time to write my part?

Am I too late to make my mark,

to give up work and make a start?

And, if I choose to make that start,

will I finish before I part?

Is there a time? I ask myself.

A time to write; a time to part?

Am I too late, at forty-eight!

Or, should I just accept my fate?

Before I part, I might just start.

Getting Out of the Day Job 1: A Diary

Published by The Silly-Savvy Salopian

Freelance writer and descendant of the cave dweller and outlaw, Humphrey Kynaston. Banished from Shropshire for my eccentricity, I have made my home in Suffolk. I write poetry, short stories, travel journals, comedy gig reviews and non-fiction articles. My wish is to write my way back into the heart of my birth land. All writing commissions (and free holidays in Shropshire!) considered.
