SPARKS

Havin' my coffee and coughing.
Chokin' on smoke as I'm laughing.
Watchin comedy central, so I don't cry.
See others livin' happy, so I don't feel like I died.
Floating in some place, I'm not even sure where.
Wondering if I'm stuck here, will I ever get............ "there"?

Staring through my tearing eyes, at my dogs eyes tearing too.
You know your loved when someone cries because you do.
I say I love you too sparks, and smile for a bit.
Not quite sure why but "mans best friend", no bullshit.
I have a few people too, that help me through, but I feel I burden them.
There's somethin' wrong, if I write a song, will people get me then?

Olympic gold, as the snow I'm cold, proud flags unfurled.
What about me, my poetry, I wanna share with the world.
I spose maybe I'm not that good, but I'm not shootin' for the gold.
I just wanna share, with people who care, the ones still around when I'm old.
But nuthin' lasts forever, and most is very brief.
All we all can hope for, is periodical relief.
I can only assume, noones life is "perfect", how could I know.
I just see fewer smiling people, now grumbling as they go.
And I'm one of them, from time to time, season to season.
Are we running out of happiness, and what could be the reason??

Well, I think I know:
IT'S EVIL!, like a virus.
Some of us have stronger antibiotics.
The strong can help the weak.
So come on people!!
Weak, stand!
Strong, reach!
Stupid, think!
Smart, teach!

We are people!, we are one.
Focus only on love, and you have won.

EVIL only LIVE... where and when we choose. Views of a better day begin with choices, on what you read, in which way. xo

eyes cried out and hands went reaching searched the verses for deeper meaning desperate stares in darkly places replacing smiles in once bright faces ... how far do we go? energy exchange of the mind is game doing for others as yourself the same but what of 'them' when the smart do teach? what of 'them' who refuse and beseech? what of 'them' who feed on care? what of 'them' who pretend it's fair...? ... stand up, I agree. repairing YOURself, doesn't being with 'me'. . A wonderful write!

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
