A Little Tune For Your Insecure Dune!

So it is Canada Day and Insecure Writers Group is also at play. I think I would hide under the bed if I played that O'Canada song that fills me with dread. So the cat hates the song, don't like it chew on my snip snipped ding dong. Hmm bad image there. Okay, on with it at my lair. A better tune, because it was written by me, err umm because it is at my sand dune.






The one thing that holds true,
In all life through and through,
Is life is constant change,
Things will always rearrange.

Life always takes a turn
As you live and you learn
Counting the many ways you're beat,
Suffering in your own defeat.

Stress a little less
Let go a little more
Life may be a mess
But it doesn't have to be a chore

Shadows lurk from the past.
The present sure won't last.
You can't ever get a win,
Feeling like packing it in.

The voice inside agrees.
Creating your own time freeze.
Stuck in a fear you create.
Suffering your own doomed fate.

Fear a little less
Live a little more
Life can be a mess
But it doesn't have to be a chore

Your body holds the scars,
Always humming a few bars.
Letting you know you're whipped.
Insecurity being gripped.

Settling for its lies.
Lost in your aging disguise.
Pent up from within.
Taking it on the chin.

Sit a little less
Move a little more
Life can be a mess
Bit it doesn't have to be a chore

Lonely and lost.
Hope has been tossed.
Can't love yourself.
Looking to a book shelf.

Fairy tales cloud your mind,
As you go about the grind.
Forgetting whats within you.
Thinking life is through.

Hate a little less
Love a little more
Life can be a mess
But it doesn't have to be a chore

The constant in life,
Is there will be strife.
Knocked over and down.
Kicking you across town.

Change has you against the wall.
You no longer stand tall.
Leaving you lost,
As life has been tossed.

Hold a little less,
Change a little more.
Life can be a mess.
But it doesn't have to be a chore.

Move and love,
Let go and live.
Change may push and shove,
But it can also give and give.

And that is it for today. It just came out at my bay, so I went with it. Did it scare the insecurity away a bit? If not you can come clean my litterbox. That will scare it to the docks. At least the tune wasn't done by a singing bass or someone with gas. That would be crass. Now off I go with my secure little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  8. The words to the song embolden
    The message here is golden
    The insecure are flaky
    Like a reed in the wind is shaky
    They should take the words to heart
    Spread the love now let it start

Damn, Canada Day and the England's women's football team spoiled it straight away/by beating the home team on home turf/ at the World Cup that has every one over here like a bag of nerves/I just hope there's still plenty of maple syrup to enjoy/and that Canada Day fills everyone with joy! :-)

  40. Change can be huge and unexpected. I'm living proof having recently lost every single 'thing' in my life, including those things that are most precious to me in the world (like my grandma's sewing machine, a lifetime of photographs, and my children's baby boxes). In the end though, even though it hurts to lose those things....they are just that, 'things.' It's the people that really matter, and I'm surrounded by some amazing people. Life goes on, and hurrah for it.
