Shelf of Life

In response to Daily Prompt : Shelf 

She looked at the Shelf of her life

And wondered what to savor today

The spice of romance, being a wife?

Or the sweetness of motherhood, say?

The fragrance of being a loved daughter

Or the cheer of being a supportive sister

The happiness of being his bestest friend

Or the joy of  likes at her blog post end?

The uplifting tag of being a “Career woman”

Or the intoxicating aroma of being just Woman?

Discarded, the myriad books fell all around

Till only one remained and held its ground

not the wife, not the mother ,

not the sister, not the doctor,

not the blogger, not the daughter.



She took the thin lil book down from  Life’s Shelf 

And a smile crossed her lips as she finally met her Self!
