The Reality Of Your Life

.

“What’s writing

really about?

It’s about trying to

take fuller possession

of the reality

of your life.”

true facts

cannot be denied

never confused with fiction

actual

alligator tears

looking for more sympathy

loves the attention

Poem:

.

it is raining, God’s most precious gift
the tonic that gives everyone a lift
animal and vegetable alike
even the little boy whose name is Mike

except when it was time to clean behind his ears
Mother only laughed at his crocodile tears
an Aquarius, he took to water like a fish
his favorite snack was Mother’s knish

he was a sneak and from the truth he fled
his whole world existed inside his head
a loner by nature, he never had a friend
never someone on whom you could depend

drinking too much never helped his disposition
that and his total lack of any ambition
too many jobs to count, many marriages failed
could never remember how many times he was jailed

a devine miracle, God struck him sober
he became a human instead of an ogre
he found his soul, a smile gave him a facelift
behind the rain he is now God’s next best gift

fake crocodile tears

sympathy for a hurt pride

empathy deserved

.

Poem:

.

if it is not love, it is the trees
a fascination with the birds and the bees
poetry tells stories and speaks emotions
living life by going through the motions

love is learning to see with the heart
knowing that everyone has a part
the very first step is sharing kindness
common interests will soon lead to fondness

today I’ll love my favorite squeeze
a thankful heart contented to please
together we’ll enjoy the beach and some flowers
going home to watch reruns of Fawlty Towers

there for each other as life does change
ignoring quirky habits others may think strange
happy are they who share love and nature
never to argue with the great Creator

love unconditionally, be a blessing
wear a big smile, it will keep them guessing
