Want

If you can’t get What you want Learn to want What you get   Most of life is attitude Always turn to gratitude Hard work and effort can change a lot But sometimes all you get is squat The winds of Fortune blow hot and cold And if our response is uncontrolled We miss the […]

Mother time

Mother time fixes Everything Mother time will solve all my wows From acid reflux to my fungus toes I’m so grateful that I came to earth Bad vision or cancer won’t quell my mirth Achy joints and noise in my ears Its a small price to pay for so many great years I’m falling apart […]

Past

Living in the Past Is the best way to stay In the past Most of what we see today Are past decisions on display We sow seeds without concern And dislike the outcomes but never learn To think and plan before we act Create the best plan of attack Time flies by at an exhilarating […]

Hope

Give up all Hope Of a better Past It’s good to reflect on events of the past Sometimes we extract lessons that last But to whine, complain and wallow in regret Will makes you tense and always upset The past is the past it’s over forever Use what it taught in your next endeavour The […]

Excellence

Pursue excellence Ignore fame From the high ground of my 80th year I can see how little there is to fear It seems that the project of biggest concern Is figuring out what’s important to learn For me it’s been the knowledge and skill Of how to respond with love and goodwill And not be […]

DNA 525

We are disposable Carriers of DNA Nature’s plan is simple and clear Survive and breed then disappear That glow of life from the primordial slime Has traveled unbroken until our time For a billion years it has evolved & changed And now our whole world we rearrange Airplanes, tanks, guns and bombs Toll booths, hospitals […]
