CHEAP TALK AND FALSE REPENTANCE

CHEAP TALK AND FALSE REPENTANCE

Sometimes, I wonder

Before I’m gone,

Should I do more

To atone,

For my transgressions

And any strife,

I’ve caused to others

In my life,

There are mountains

To climb,

And goals to reach,

But, no, I’ll just stay here,

On the beach.

ROCKY ROADS AND LOYAL FRIENDS

ROCKY ROADS AND LOYAL FRIENDS

If my life is like a truck,

Its shocks are surely shot,

Rockin’ down this rocky road,

Bad luck is all I’ve got,

 

No job, no life, no dough,

Just sickness, death, and grief,

Happiness is my foe,

A bottle: my relief,

 

But on this rocky road beside me,

My one true, loyal friend,

My dog will not deride me,

He’ll stick by me til the end.   😊

LIFE’S TRUTHS!

LIFE’S TRUTHS!

I lay, deep down

In dark despair,

Life had grabbed me

And tossed me there,

 

But then, your smile

Filled me with glee,

Perhaps life wants me

To be happy!

 

But then, life is cruel,

Don’t you see,

Your smile was for one

Next to me!

 

But then, I realized,

Forsooth!

Happiness lies within,

That’s the truth!   😊

LIFE IS LIKE AN APPLE TREE

LIFE IS LIKE AN APPLE TREE

Life is like an apple tree,

It’s difficult to climb,

We see the juicy apples,

We reach for the sublime,

 

We learn that many apples

Are filled with worms, what’s more,

We learn that many apples

Are rotten to the core,

 

Sometimes, we reach great heights,

The world is ours, but then,

Sometimes, we fail and fall,

And then, begin again.

AS OLD AS METHUSELAH!

AS OLD AS METHUSELAH!

I’m as old as Methuselah,

But before I am done,

I finally have decided

To have some fun!

 

But I can’t play college football,

There’s no eligibility,

When you are pushing

Nine hundred eighty-three!

 

I wanted to sky dive

But the pilot was a boob,

He didn’t want “Old Man Die Live”

On You Tube!

 

I shoulda tried pro golf,

I really shoulda,

But now I’m just

An old Tiger Wooda-coulda,

 

The moral:  it is clear,

Don’t wait, it’s a sin,

If you wait until you’re old,

To see what might have been!   😊
