#Poetrychallenge – A reflective poem by Michael Cheadle


Michael Cheadle

Child of Terence and Robbie Cheadle

Who loves my family

Who dislikes spiders

Who wants to go to Scotland

Who wishes he could

have met Shakespeare

Who is scared of snakes

Who dreams of being an engineer

Who is determined to get a job at 23

Who values family

Who lives in South Africa

by Michael Cheadle

What should I leave?

When I die, one day

I can leave behind money

or inspiration

how do I want my life’s work

to be remembered forever?

by Robbie Cheadle

  1. Michael and Robbie, you both have written lovely poems. I love that Michael is contemplating his future. That’s how dreams become realities. If you can visualize it, it will be! You and Michael could create a visualization board together. Here is a link: https://www.yogiapproved.com/life-2/vision-boards/. I had a friend who did this with her daughter and years later, they found her notebook and were amazed at how many of the things she wished to accomplish, she did! Bravo to you both. ❤

  2. I love both poems by Michael and you, Robbie. I love the way he thinks about his parents, his value and what he expects for his future. I love Robbie’s thought about how you want to be remembered. You do leave a lot to be remembered. ❤
