The Eclectic Pen - My Hand

  Try my hand,
try my hand at something they said
What do you like they said.
I remember a course I signed up for,
that was taken away;
money not refunded;
joy not restored

Then came the babies
and all the richness
and joy that that provides.
My hand was tried on
making little ones happy
and healthy.

Now, so many years later,
here I am trying my hand,
at something.
And it has not been taken away;
money given, rather than taken.
Incredible to be paid for doing what I love.
joy restored.
