Utter pride and sheer contentment 🌹🙏

I followed my heart after I had bared my inner soul

Writing those Jill’s tales book of life in my verses made me feel so whole

And as I reminisced from amidst my memories, unwanted welling tears were often out of my control

But little did I ever imagine, that my memoirs would ever achieve an awe inspiring goal..

So my Jill’s tales was completed in my many hand written pages

Three years ago I wrote fourteen chapters of my entire life story, mentioning each and everyone of my family in stages

And this hand written book, has simply been in the bottom of my wooden chest collecting cobwebs for ages

So locked up with my list of three thousand and more poems, silenced like yon lions in those circus cages..

Well a beautiful lass Eureka Cambonga Bianzon Robey, and from out of the blue

Said “Can you email your Jill’s tales to me please, I would like to read them all through

So of course I sent every one of my chapters to her immediately, without any further ado

Then I was absolutely flabbergasted, when Eureka messaged me back saying she would like to publish Jill’s tales with Mckinleypublishinghub.com, in my first ever book.. and thankfully I responded with a totally shocked “Wow, really” and “Thank you !!”..

So when I sit here today with my pretty pink, glossy book in the palm of my hands

And you know that feeling of utter pride and sheer contentment, that only the blessed understands?

As I read all about my loved ones amidst the hearts of their homelands

Where I wonder now, was fulfilling my hidden secrets of living my dreams written in God’s list of his commands?…🌹

Jill Tait , Published Author of Jill’s Tales

I am Jill Tait living in the beautiful, rolling hills and valleys of North Northumberland.. 

My little quaint town dwells down in the valleys with the meandering stream waxing and waning, as water flows from the high surrounding hills.

My obsession for penning poetry actually started one Autumnal afternoon, I was sitting anxiously waiting in a hospital room, full of people.. My dear sister Chris had a cancerous mole you see, so as I sat, I wrote her my poem all about our exact events on that day. I found it very easy typing text word for word on my iPhone, and it passed time away, lost in my little bubbles..Needless to say, Chris was okay after a long day and she really loved her very own personal poem..

So that was to be the very onset of my ‘Life in verses’ and really I tend to write about everything and anything that springs up along the way.. I love that pleasurable pass time being lost up a height in cloud nine, haha and I simply cannot not rhyme.. believe me I have tried prose..

I am now retired so have time on my hands and enjoy my active contribution as an administrator on the Passion of poetry. Annette Tarpley founded this absolutely gold mine for poets/poetesses all over the big wide world. I am pleased to say I adore Annette and value our friendship so much. She believed in me and invited me, then welcomed me with open arms into her amazing family. So we all work continuously behind the scenes growing Passion of Poetry from strength to strength..

A couple of years ago, whilst writing my many song lyrics and trying, to sing my tunes, something told me to write fourteen chapters of ‘Jill’s Tales’ 

I loved every second of penning from beyond my bygone memory recollections, so I really pray my readers share my pleasure whilst reading my life long truths..

My angel, Marilou  Eureka Cambonga Bianzon Robey made this book possible and I cannot thank her along with two more angels, Don Luman-ag and Dex Amoroso, ever enough for making my hidden dreams come true.. you see, dreams really can come true, you just gotta believe in Angels…

Message from Author Jill

Follow your heart ❤️

Nothing in this world is impossible
You only need to believeThen you will be amazed
At just what you will achieve
It doesn’t matter how big or small
Your personal ambition may be
Simply set your heart and soul on it
I think this is a certainty
Never let anyone tell you
Your dream won’t come your way
They are negative people
Be positive I say
There is a world awaiting you
Full of delightful daring things
For instance if your desire is travelling
Then spread those tiny wings
Or perhaps you long to own a company
Be the master of a trade
Strive hard towards this wish
Eventually this will be portrayed
Theres nobody can do it for you
So you need to know this from the start
If there is something that you really want
Then try your best with all your heart
We are put on this earth for a reason
I reckon that this is true
So follow your dreams forever
No matter what you do
Much Love
Jill Tait

CHALLENGES IN LIFE by Shabbirhusein K Jamnagerwalla( My Pen & Soul Featured Poet)

We are just bizarre trespassers on this earth
Planning and committing follies
Creating also some delightful projects
Along our earthly stay
Inventing and creating a new World
And in doing so
Go to any impossible lengths
Felony and evil motives are sought thoughtlessly
There are those who face unthought of challenges
Passing their lives over sharp obstacles
Enduring so many sacrifices and challenges
Oh leaving aside a notable easy life
Having cherished dreams of success and progressive life
They opt for great difficulties and exceptional dangers
Remaining hungry and thirsty
Facing horrible torments and immense taunts
In pursuit for better worldly rewards
And they are the soldiers seeking fame and power
In our most unfathomable world
Where we are mere trespassers
Seeking impossible challenges and wealth.

Shabbirhusein K Jamnagerwalla

Do You Know? by Sunita Sahoo ( My Pen & Soul Featured Poetess)

You sneer at those scars

Etched on her skin, so conspicuous

Like a constellation of stars!

Do you know?

She’s the same woman

Who saved that little kid,

From catastrophic fire back then!

You despise her actions

Of educating young minds,

As societal taboos and distractions!

Do you know?

She was a victim of marital rape

Prey of a sexual predator

Despicably trapped, gasping to escape!

You bully her everyday

For she cries often, eternally depressed

And finds it hard to shake those emotions away!

Do you remember?

That headline on the newspaper

“Three dead in a gruesome accident”

Those were her parents and her brother!

You are so quick to judge her!

“Infertile”, “Sterile”, “Infecund”

Multifarious titles on her you confer.

Do you know?

She suffered tragic miscarriages

Not one but three in a row!

Owing to the wretched actions of some savages.

You jeer at that hefty roll of flab

Hanging over her waist and thighs

That confidence in her, you ruthlessly stab!

Do you know?

She has been silently suffering,

All this time, affected by PCOS

Unable to bear any offspring.

Every single woman you meet out there

Hides a story, grisly and dark

That haunts her often, too distressing to bear!

Do you know?

Your insensitive jibes shatter her conviction,

Can we not harass her anymore?

Instead, support and lessen her mental affliction!

Message to the Readers:

My poem titled “Do You Know?” is a hard-hitting reality which I wanted to bring to the light. Many a time, we come across women who are body shamed or jeered at due to their inability to bear children or because of some scars and bruises etched on their skin. We do not know the story behind them, yet we have the audacity to mock at or pass insensitive remarks shattering their confidence. Through my poem, I want to request the society to live and let her live as well, respecting her decisions and being empathetic to their situations. ♡ Sunita

Four Seasons( An Acrostic Poem)

W_inter breeze , chills comes my way
I_ndoor activities are pleasurable to let me stay
N_ights are approaching  real fast
T_ime of the day is about to end, so quick to last
E_ars so cold,in a cover  my body is ready to rest
R_adio’s fine ,but  hot chocolate will do the best

S_pring is here , I can  see it coming
P_etals of flowers start blooming
R_ain makes me dance ,tapping my boots
I_n celebration of not wearing my heavy suits
N_ow I can see the trees, surrounding so green
G_rasses and birds singing are best sign of spring

S_ummer is time to have so much fun
U_nder the brightness of glorious sun
M_ore outdoor activities we can do
M_orning stays longer for me and you
E_ven the sky stays brilliant with shades of blue
R_eading by the beach will be a fun thing to do

A_ll of the said seasons makes me feel excited
N_ights and days are  wonderfully exhibited
D_ry leaves are now approaching my way

F_all season is here , my favorite part of every day
A_s I turn around falling leaves touch my hair
L_ots of fruits harvested, pumpkins are everywhere
L_ovely time to spend outside to feel the cool mist of        
     the air. ©️my-pen-and-soul.com

Let’s Grow Together by Wilfred Ntui (My Pen & Soul Featured Poet)

I’m a human not by color

Nor race but by my thinking

Capability, this unique feature

Is only seen in humans, animals

Are excepted.

I’m an African not by intention

Nor choice but by God’s wisdom

That surpasses cardinal analysis.

I’m a Nigerian not by awareness

Nor signatory but by mystery of the

Womb designed from above to

Fulfill a task undone.

Don’t judge me by what

My nationality is known for,

But rather by what you noticed

About me with fairness, good

Conscience and moral virtue.

The mystery is unknown to all

But the fact remains that we all

Makeup the world, yes!

I mean

Me and you, because the world has

None but me and you.

Let’s strive for peace, unity

And progress for with these

We can make the world a better

Place for all.

©️ Wildred Ntui
