It’s important

To interrogate oneself

And not just live your version of the world

Interrogation wakes us up

A good dig in the ribs

Stirs us to be our better selves

Not living in our fibs


My father in his final years

Sat in his cosy chair

And spoke to me ex cathedra

Without the papal air

That looking out the window

Was no idle stare

But quiet wise reflection

Wise words then to share


Now my morning musing

Is no idle time

I bring into awareness

My family friends and find

My thinking of them gentler

My view of life more kind

Helped by simple questioning

Amazing what you’ll find
