LIFE’S CRESTS AND TROUGHS

LIFE’S CRESTS AND TROUGHS

Life is like an ocean wave,

With lots of crests and troughs,

At its best, you ride the crest,

But then, you’ll have it rough,

Sometimes, you think,

I’ll ride this crest, all the way to town!

But then, a new wave comes along

And SPLAT!  It knocks you down!   😊

DON’T SWEAT SMALL DETAILS!

DON’T SWEAT SMALL DETAILS!

In a jungle river swimming,

In just a little while,

A little man swam up to

A large crocodile,

 

He said, “Sir, it would complete me,

Could you tell me, now or later,

Just before you eat me,

How you differ from a gator?”

 

The croc smiled and said,

“I want to appease you,

But why care, you’ll soon be dead?

But I’ll answer, just to please you!”

 

“Crocs have a toothier grin,

So, I will chew you well,

But sometimes, Sir, you don’t need

To sweat such small details!”   😊

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!   😊
