Poem - The Fee Of Life

Updated on February 24, 2014

One of my poems

Written in response to an aquaintance constantly complaining about how my life was so much more 'exciting' than hers, mainly because I made the effort and did things.

I suppose I was feeling a bit grumpy about all her complaining and her failure to see what the good parts of her life were.

I hope you enjoy the read

There are always costs to be paid for anything in life...

Every theory has its season

Every idea has its day.

There seems no rhyme or reason

Why I should feel this way.

I’m told a hard-luck tale,

You bore me with your woes.

I realize you choose to fail,

That’s the plot you chose.

I think I'll find another way.

I see the promise that life holds

The path I have to take.

And as I walk these lonely roads,

The choices I have to make.

I know the path that I choose

Will lead where I need to go

It is not my fate to lose.

I’ll keep traveling even though

Sometimes it feels so fake.

You think you understand my life?

There's so much more to know.

Self-knowledge is my key

I’m my only chance at ‘Me’

I’m the hero of my plot

A role you’ll never play

For while I go boldly to face my lot,

You fear the price to pay,

While I’ll gladly pay the fee.

My Writing

I am an author, my most recent novel is available on Amazon under my pen name Julie Emovon.

The main content of this module is one of my poems. More of my poetry can be found on my author website, the link of which is below.

There are personal stories behind most of my poems. They all have a deep meaning for me. By sharing this work with you, I am letting you into my world, where I have been a mother, a wife, a divorcee, a friend, a daughter and more. My life has not been easy, but my love of learning and the joy I have in meeting people from all walks of life and cultures has given my life a length and depth I can only share through my writing.

If you are reading this, welcome to my world!
