Her Greatest Hit


She gazed out of the window
Watching the traffic speed by
A middle-aged woman
With no ‘job’, yet doing the work she loved.
Not living in the house of her dreams
But certainly at home in love.
Not having conquered the world
But having overcome her own demons.
Not surrounded by fawning fans
But by significant others,
Who saw the real woman within
And loved her for who she was.
With no children of her own,
Yet nurturing many.

She smiled
Content at where she was
And who she had become.
“Life”, she thought,
“That’s my greatest hit!”



This is my response to The Writer’s Post Thursday Blog Hop hosted by Cairn Rodrigues.

    that was so lovely……
    And to reach the space of inner peace is like seeing heaven when alive…..

    Hi, Corinne! ~

    This seems like a poem about YOU, except you’re not middle-aged yet and I don’t know if you live in the house of your dreams — it looks quite magnificent from the pictures I’ve seen!

    I often say that the life I’m creating is my greatest work of art, which is in a similar vein ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Beautifully expressed, Corinne. And the last two lines say it all. Life indeed should be our greatest hit. This would make a great song.

    Corinne, this poem is splendid. It reflects so much contentment and such appreciation for the simple act of loving and being loved…being alive. Is this not what we all aim for. Well done soul-sister <3
