'Sober thoughts'


You know how I sometimes wish life would be easier then I realize with easy comes self reliance and we can’t depend on ourselves the air that we breathe comes from somewhere - a higher power that power decides whether we stop breathing or continue living so if your days feel like it’s getting tougher if you feel all your strength has deserted you it has not; you still have the ability to think you can still embrace what life offers you even if its heartache, tough times, difficult people somewhere out there someone would take all your difficult moments just to experience life in all its facets

    How true Wilma, we have to take life as it comes and deal with all the finicky problems. Someone said that makes us wise. Maby stupid is not so ornery. Love you poem sweetie and hope all is well with you. :)

    This write reminds me to be happy and satisfied at where I am, that many people might not have the luxury or the gift of poetry in their lives! I am blesses in so many ways, I can do nothing but be happy of where I am, and your poem shows me this! I just want to share my events of life through my poems so others can see things as I do! This is a beautiful poem, I really enjoyed reading it this afternoon! What an amazing piece, Great Work!!
