Reflections/Interjections

      Taking the easy way out today, no explanations needed. Just some things to think about.

     Have a wish-filled Wednesday,

Jake.

REFLECTIONS

(page nine)

*

 The very best work,

of the song writer, and poet,

is usually that which requires,

the very least of it.

………………………………………………………………………………

 In business and battle,

there’s one thing you’ll find.

When you move forward,

you better watch your behind.

……………………………………………………………………………..

 I don’t strive to be a sinner.

But, some things just seem,

to come naturally, to me.

………………………………………………………………………………

 In military circles, the general,

is of higher rank and status.

And generally speaking,

of more importance, than a major.

 But, in life in general,

which seems to have more the impact,

the general screw-up,

or the major one?

…………………………………………………………………………….

 The solitary difference,

between loneliness, and solitude,

is that of choice.

……………………………………………………………………………

 Hatred, destroys the soul.

Anger, consumes the mind.

But, laughter soothes the heart.

And love, all three will bind.

…………………………………………………………………………….

I stand alone to gaze upon my days and years gone by. I've laughed, I've cried, I've loved and loathed, but now, I can't remember why! ~Jack Downing~
