     Running late, out the gate..Takin’ the easy way out.. I do wish for all of you a Fantastic Friday, and a Wild and Wonderful Weekend.

REFLECTIONS

(page eleven)

***

Ignorance is bliss.

Until you’re on,

the receiving end.

……………………………………………………………………………..

The skeptic’s always doubtful,

but, the cynic’s always sure.

That nothing’s what it seems to be.

And for both, there is no cure.

…………………………………………………………………………….

Why is the good news,

never as good,

as the bad news,

is bad?

……………………………………………………………………………

The wisdom of age,

comes from experiencing,

that, which we can

no longer do.

……………………………………………………………………………

One day you’re gonna wake up,

to find, you’re no longer a lass or lad.

But, that doesn’t mean that your best days,

are the ones, that you’ve already had.

……………………………………………………………………………

Be you fat, or be you thin,

or anywhere in be`twin.

It matters not,

the skin you’re in.

For be it dark, or be it light,

there is no wrong or right.

For to someone, you will always be,

a very welcomed sight.

…………………………………………………………………………….
