The Name Of The Game Is Change



The more things seem to be changing The more they stay the same We must adapt and go with the flow Because change is the name of the game We struggle to keep our heads above water There are times it's a losing battle We get caught up in just making ends meet Sometimes we're like a herd of cattle However when we reach our senior years When pressures seem less intense It's nice to sit back and reflect on life And remember each happy event It's then we realize what life's all about Not about the number of possessions It's being happy and content in your skin And using time left with discretion © Jack Ellison 2013

    They woke me up at 52... and I haven't stopped running since... It's been kinda like jumping from stone to stone in a creek. Fun but occasionally slippery... But a good swim never hurts any one. Last one in is a poopy pants... Trolls wanta come too... so be careful... They're a bit clutsy and might get in the way... or splash all the water out... LOL... Better hurry before they get here! Yee Haw....

    I just hope that when I'm in my elder years that I can reflect back on my life and be pleased at what I see! I'm sure that since I'm happy now, that I will be happy at what I will be viewing then! I'm hoping that you are viewing a great past life, and have things that make you happy that have happened then! I'm sure you are able to smile with a lot of your past, and your non possessions that you have, those internal joys that you have acquired! This is a superior poem, I loved everything! Great!

    Oops the gremlins are at it again! LOL Once happy, always happy... that's how I see it! In certain situations you can actually CHOSE to be happy in the face of adversity! It definitely can be a CHOICE! Thanks my friend as always!
