Way To Go--By Patricia Ann Farnsworth-Simpson--Canary Islands

Way To Go

If it was a hunch and you did it then I bet
You are glad you did without regret
You might think it a guess but it feels good
When you follow your instincts like you should.
if you get more than one premonition
Then you are strong on intuition
With a sixth sense and instinct to know
You must let gut feelings dictate the flow
If you cultivate these gifts given to you
And follow your instincts in all you do
Then you'll be a positive person to find
You don't need others to make up your mind.
You choose your own

Way To Go!

Patricia Ann Farnsworth-Simpson is a coal miner’s daughter, the only girl among 6 lads. A young mother to a son, she became a widow before she turned 18.  Patricia, then, married her childhood sweetheart who fathered her lovely son and two wonderful daughters.  Her children encouraged her to pursue her own talents.  After 51 years of marriage, she became a widow again recently.  She fills her time with poetry, helping others whenever she can.


  1. Excellent and wise words herein. We must take those steps on our own to open the doors - and when that happens - voila! it is an exhilarating experience! Great words of advice here....... Sheri

  2. Very interesting and enjjoyable write Pat. I kept looking for a hidden meaning but did not find one. Bob

  3. Patricia, I really loved this poem. Indeed to follow ones own instincts is the best way to live. It reminds me of this quote, "To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man." - William Shakespeare
    Thank you for sharing your talent.
    Love, Charlene

  4. Good write Pat. I use the gut instincts a lot when I don't have instructions to follow. Wonderful flow and rhythm. Enjoyed. Janet

  5. Some say you should not rely on 'feelings', but I have followed my gut and my heart all life and it has served me well. Very uplifting words, Pat. Kristina

  6. A very good poem with a good message I enjoyed reading this beautifully crafted poem but then I would expect no less from you Pat

    Write On Write Well

    God Bless


  7. Hi Patricia. It is good to see your work here at Whispers again. You write such lovely poetry. Sometimes our "hunches" are what causes us to react to certain things, or even take the initiative. Thanks for sharing this and thank you for all you do for the writing community.
