Life Is a Feast

     To lose loved ones and friends to death is a natural part of being, and is painful. We have an emptiness left inside of us, that will eventually fade, but I pity those who lose family and friends to petty strife. Family battles that lead to banishment and/or hatred, are to me, the worst, and the hardest fences to mend.

     So, that being said, you know where this is going. I hope you enjoy it.


Life Is a Feast

 Precious and dear,

are family and friend,

and not until, they’ve vanished,

do we remember,

that life is a feast,

and now, they’ve left us famished.

 And pity more so,

the feuding ones,

who, from their lives, they’ve banished.

Let the olive’s branch,

extend to those,

before the permanence, of damage.
