                 Poem: Introducing Myself

I’m Fiona and I’m over forty,
Mostly I’m good, but sometimes I’m naughty.
Of children I have been blessed with four,
Although I really can’t say I’d want any more.

Holding a business hasn’t happened here,
So at the moment, I’m a volunteer.
I love painting and writing and singing,
I’m sure to others it looks like I’m winging.

The people I value as friends
Are happy and honest and warm.
If they do wrong they make amends,
And don’t turn everything into a storm.

Silence and lies are what I hate
And not achieving, and being late.
I’m happy in the presence of God above,
And when I’m allowed to love and love.

To successful society I must be a freak,
And appear to be pathetic and weak,
As I’m honest and mean every word I say,
But my life has meaning every day.  

I’m compassionate and good at listening,
Though often my own eyes are the ones that are glistening.

I know I’ve been put right here on earth,
To inspire others to know their worth,
To share my joy as well as my pain,
And to turn my losses into gain.

By Fiona Pimentel
