On Pinterest


pretty things on Pinterest
I see on my screen
beauty, fresh and lovely
all neat and clean
dream houses and d├ęcor
food, ideas, art
you could click forever
each time you start
I look at our mess
scattered over the floor
grace is here somewhere
I just have to dig 
a bit more
find the joy in the clutter
and try not to mutter
of chaos, and going insane
even a house full of love
is still not a house without pain
mine is broken beauty
not the Pinterest style
colours clash, ideas crash
after a while
living is imperfect
grace in the strife
Pinterest is there,
it won’t go anywhere
but I have to believe
I do have a beautiful life!
just a minute I'll take to pin it
something pretty and new
then I’m off to play games
with Thing 1 and Thing 2…
