THOUGHTS ON A SUNSET

Yesterday while watching the sun set

I thought how nature is so beautiful…

and yet

 

I find myself hesitant…afraid

at the world before me man has made

 

At all the horrible things we’re doing

At all the bitterness and hatred brewing

 

As the sun descended this thought entered my mind

There is a way to make the world kind?

 

And though this may be hard for some to swallow

I believe it depends on who we follow.

 

What if at sunset…when today is done

We stop following fools with power…fools with guns

 

And when we awake to a new sunrise

We follow only leaders whom we think are wise.

 

So at future sunsets we’ll just enjoy the view

 

Like, I believe, we were meant to do.

TALK TO A CHILD

When confused some people look to religion for peace and understanding..

others turn to the Tao, the Buddha and Zen….

Still others only need talk to a child

 

to understand life again.

THE JOURNEY

      

It’s not the destination

Or the beauty of the quay

It’s the making of the journey

And the learning, on the way

BLISS

 

If ignorance is bliss                       

Then something is amiss          

We just can’t be oblivious

When we need to piss

FEELING

 

Do a good deed

Or fill a need

Say something nice

Or give advice

Listen a while

Or flash a smile

Show that you care

Or just be there

Display your feeling

To help the healing

BRITCHES

 

The

      pleasures of life

Come

         not from riches

But,

       from what we find

In

    our britches

WALKING MONEY

 

If you find money

On the street

Just, step on it

With your feet

 

So no one sees

What you have found

Just laying there

Upon the ground

 

Then, with no one looking                                   

Grab and tuck it

Very quickly

In your pocket

STANDING FIRM

 

It may have been callous

But, I once took Cialis

Just to see, how hard it would be

 

The pill went down well

And it started to swell

So I surely was, happy

 

At first it was great

For me and my mate

As we watched it grow, with glee

 

But then, it took a turn

And we both, lost the yearn

As it, with us, didn’t agree

 

It stayed real firm

Which made me squirm

As this, I did not foresee

 

So what I had done

Had now become

Something totally, scary

 

It wouldn’t go down

Just stayed uptown

It’s not, what I expected to see

 

My mate didn’t stay

She just ran away

And listened not, to my plea

 

I was left all alone

Just me and my bone

I knew not, how this could be

 

I did what I could

But for hours it stood

Until at last, I had to pee

 

So my stupid idea

Was no panacea

And thus, it backfired on me

YOUR MIND

 

Everything we own

Can be lost, or taken away

Except, what’s in our mind

And what, it has to say
