Interjections and Reflections

I am taking the easy way out..Again. Enjoy your Sunday everyone.

Jake.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Some people are at their happiest,

when those around them, are not.

………………………………………………………………

Do not waste the time today,

with regret, and sorrow,

for all your, yesterday’s mistakes,

you may need, more time tomorrow.

………………………………………………………………..

 Be generous with praise.

But, not so much,

as to be suspicious.

…………………………………………………………………..

If only without the aches and pains,

I could rise like a child, once again.

I’d look at the world, through glasses pink,

I’d mountains climb, and pirates sink.

Ah, but now’s the time for a nap,

I think.

……………………………………………………………………………

Do you know,

what bothers me?

It’s folks that used to,

be like me.

 But, now they’ve changed,

and so should I.

For my own good,

seen, through their eyes.

……………………………………………………………………

When you have to stand up,

and face the music.

Why is it never,

a tune that you like?

…………………………………………………………………….
