Leave It As It Is

If it ain’t broken,

don’t fix it.

You have something

In its perfect state

No need to mend it

No need to adjust it

No need to change it

No need to overhaul it

Just leave it as it is.

It’s perfect that way

Whatever is working

Needs no improvement

Nor interference nor change.

Just leave it as it is

It’s perfect that way.

Whatever is working

Only needs to be secured

Protected, safeguarded,

Fortified, shielded

Or sheltered

Because it works well

Leave it as it is

It’s perfect the way it is

It’s perfect that way

If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it.

– English proverb

I'm a food scientist who has chosen the path of creative writing- the one thing which comes to me naturally.
Back in 2013, my love for teaching young learners propelled me into picking teaching as a career. I taught English, Maths and Science in the United Arab Emirates where I lived for ten years. Right now, I live in Coal City, a beautiful hilly area of my country Nigeria.
My website Fiez-writer is a product of my extreme desire to share my writing with the world. Here, I share fiction, poems, thoughts and writing tips.
A huge part of my life is spent with my lovely family and I'm a proud mother to three brilliant kids.
