Interjections and Reflections

     I am going to listen to my own words today, (see the last entry) and give you a break from my usual verbiage.

     Please have a wonderful Wednesday,



Thoughts on Living

Interjections and Reflections

The more words,

that leave your mouth,

the more room that leaves,

for your foot.


Simple things,

become more complex,

the longer we distance ourselves,

from them.


A rarer being never was,

than they, who ask not,

what the cause.

And solutions only bring,

brought without,

the questioning.


Beauty is only skin deep.

But, the cost of vanity,

is quite steep.

So, unless you have dough,

that you want to blow,

the hand you were dealt,

you should just keep.


Few things erode faster,

than sympathy.


The most vocal of people,

usually have the least to say.
