Life These Days

Do you really want to know about life these days? We all know that life is not what it use to be. There are a lot of people wirhout work, a lot of crime and a lot of senior citizens that can't afford to live on their S.S. check. The medications are too expensive. Back in the day - my day. Life was more simple. We didn't have all the commodities that we have today. People worked hard, but still found time to have fun and spend time with their famlies. people showed their love for eachother. Life was lived at at a slower pace. These days - people are always in a hurry to get somewhere, even if they don't know where they are going. A lot of the kids these days, don't have any family values, or moral standards. Back in the day - we listened to our parents and respected them. These days the kids don't know the meaning of the word. These days - people don't care much about other people. They don't lend a helping hand. These days - young kids and even grownups spend more time on their cell phones, or their computers, instead of with their famlies, or doing something productive. Kids these days think that the world owes them something. Nobody said life was easy, we all have to do our part. They tell me that it's the New Millenium. I say that decency and respect still keep being the same. Life these days is a mess and we need to clean it up...

    We have lost simplicity Lucillla, and it is driven by those who seek to profit by it, life today that is....

    Monumental! Not a single line of embellishment in this Lucilla. The world is spinning, and know one see's this with their face glued to their phone. We should invent the LOVING LIFE APP!......That "beware poem came to me rather quick! Reminiscing, then thinking what drug would EVERYONE indulge; HAPPINESS, for life is harsh at times! Thanks Lady, and dear Poet!
