Good Poets Poems

.

.

If poets often commit suicide,

it is not because their poems

are bad

but because they

are good.

Whoever heard of a bad poet

committing suicide?

attitude

negative, positive

one’s personal outlook

coping with the world

adjustment

Haiku:

.

universe explodes

expanding at hyper speed

time is man’s concept

.

Poem:

.

you must give up all hope
for a better past*
walking the slippery slope
tomorrow will be here too fast

living in the here and now
with an attitude of gratitude
contemplating the why or how
relying on God for fortitude

life is nothing but a decision
history a vague reference point
hindsight is always 20-20 vision
only the good shall we anoint

what was done, was done
today, let’s all have some fun

.
