I want to live a quiet life.
A life free from drama.
Such a peaceful, quiet life
That I’m called “No-Drama Mama.”
A life where gossip does not exist;
And hatred has no room.
A life that cares for others;
And where love instantly blooms!
A life where there are no cheaters;
A life that’s full of trust.
No blasts on social media;
Since that never helps us very much.
I want to fill my life with laughter
Developing a zone of happiness.
I want my conversation to reveal
I know that I am blessed.
To live this life, there will be choices
Regarding those that I let in.
This life requires close examination
Of my family and of my friends.
A quiet life involves telling others
To leave their drama at the door.
Knowing that others will certainly slip
And I’ll need to remind them just once more.
I want to live a quiet life
And teach younger women to do the same.
I want to remember that I am the only one
Who either makes or breaks my name.
I want to share that bitterness kills
And pettiness hurts as well.
I want to remind everyone
That negativity is a spell.
I want to live a quiet life –
A life that is solidly stable.
Yes, I want a very quiet life.
The question is, “Am I able?”
For those of us who want the quiet life
We know that we must choose.
To accomplish this quiet life,
We cannot watch the news.
