Not Quite Right

.

“You see,

I am a poet,

and not quite right

in the head,

darling.

It’s only that.”

~ Edna St. Vincent Millay

ponder this topic

who’s insane

pot called kettle black

Poem:

.

if your in need of a good laugh
check out your yearbook photograph
whatever were we thinking then
like we knew every how and when

my oh my how the time goes past
for too many it is short and fast
the fortunate followed a long straight path
for some there was little left in the aftermath

the smart learn from their own mistakes
relying on luck to make their breaks
the wise learn from the mistakes of others
if only we would have listened to our mothers

children no longer listen to learn
parents too busy to show their concern
too many good lessons left on the bookshelf
they need to learn that history does repeat itself

Roman, Ottoman and Habsburg, they all collapsed
the age old argument on who should be taxed
history used to be written by the winners
today, twitter is writing it before it happens

it’s the future generations success that they are spending
I pray o’ Lord, let me see a happy ending

My Inner Child

“I’m happy

to report

that my

inner child

is still ageless.”

ego

inner child

natured and nurtured

the person I’ve become

self

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

refuse to grow up

question, challenge, dare to be

laugh, love and enjoy

.

Poem:

.

growing up, learning to face the fears
enjoying the feelings that bring me to tears
too many years lost to the addiction
learned to live with the incurable affliction

it all started with admit and accept
belief in a power greater than my intellect
willingness to accept guidance from above
feeling the power of unconditional love

wrote the biography, both good and bad
knowing the disease made me a deadbeat dad
prayed to God, told another human being
the fog lifted, forgiveness allowed the seeing

had to identify all the bad habits and traits
those things that were attributed to the fates
a lifelong endeavor to correct and amend
going to meetings that I must attend

indiscretions of the past had to be cleared
another hurdle that was greatly feared
amends made by a changed attitude
a true faith in human nature renewed

errors and omissions promptly admitted
to a new way of life firmly committed
gratitude, prayers and meditation
to a Higher Power is given citation

His will is to be kind, tolerant and loving
in His guidance to be trusting
a spiritual awakening recognizes choices
gratitude expressed by many voices

a message carried to those still suffering
a program worked for those recovering
always trying to do the next right thing
happy, joyous and free we sing

steps to lift the soul from despair
a fellowship beyond compare
