THE SILLY SOLUTION

THE SILLY SOLUTION

(No relation to the earlier post!)

You find something silly and say it,

Depressed people rarely display it…

Making folks laugh–

A good epitaph–

If surviving kin okay it!

Why consider being dead,

Let’s get that out of my head…

Thinking “happy”

And act it snappily,

Our laughter turning faces red.

Positive is as does,

Emotions follow because…

“Do” and find

Changing of mind,

Follow  with great guffaws.

SOMETHING DIFFERENT TODAY…!

SOMETHING DIFFERENT TODAY…!

He really felt so dismayed,

So many chores had been delayed…

Dizziness set in

Walking within,

He knew he’d not made the grade.

Tempted he was to toss

Out his good name by loss…

Of self-control

Taking the toll,

Defiling and losing his cross.

But along came bloggers sharing

Their hope and joy in caring…

There still might be time

To turn to rhyme,

Instead of his grievances bearing!

A QUESTION OF HOW AND WHY

A QUESTION OF HOW AND WHY

 

Bitterness breeds around the edge

Of what seems no more…

Trying to make things work only

Makes a person sore.

Soreness rises with the thought

Of what no more may be…

Without having great expense

And severe penalty!

Questions rise unanswered,

But for consistent “noes”…

Hopes alive must be shed

Like worn out clothes.

ULTRA-DOWNER

ULTRA-DOWNER

 

He quietly sits alone,

With wife or close friends near….

So used they are to his quietness

He might as well not be here.

Not that they are ignoring him

Or he ignoring them…

But he never says much either way,

Even though they are his friends.

Once in a while it’s the same old story,

He’s no right to complain…

He can’t expect others to read his mind

Or hear his “downer” refrain.

To tell you the truth its been a while

Since he felt this low…

When you don’t want to bother with poetry,

There’s not further down to go.

Blood sugar levels are part of the tale

And getting worked up over things….

If he opened up to someone he trusts,

Perhaps then his heart could sing.
