Detached

Detached Observation Just another Day Big plans, high hopes the days go by fast I have come to realize there’s nothing that last I’ll sit joyfully & watch the days come and go Breathe deep, relax and get into the flow To stay fit and healthy takes more than just hope Exercise, eat well and […]

Compassionate

Be compassionate To all beings I am just one more of the walking dead With many questions in my head Now I know I’ll never know How I wound up in this crazy show I was sure I knew how things come out But now I’m not sure what will sprout Ignorance is a lifelong […]

Sad affair

A sad affair Two days now the gray cats gone I call and call and feel forlorn Twice before she’s not come home We called & called but she chose to roam I still have hope she’s young and strong That she will come home where she belongs It’s four months now since she has […]

Learn

You may not Always win But you can Always learn I got all pumped up with a big success But the rest of my life was a real mess I studied & prayed trying to find a way out Of depression, anger and clouds of doubt I saw 4 different shrinks for over 20 years […]

Pleasure 510

The pleasure will Pass The consequences will Last Put more ice cream on my cake I worked real hard I need a break Just one more beer before I go Will really put me in the flow How many times have I frowned at the scale Or looked in the mirror and felt like a […]
