The Softer Side Of Jack



Everyone really knows me As always being loopy and light Though sometimes I can be serious Silly usually wins the fight It's really just quite recently Good time Charlie is king I used to get extremely emotional At the slightest little thing Which one would I rather be? A small wee bit of both The romantic side is warming But I like my happy side most Perhaps it's just a cover up So my feelings don't get hurt Joking and making fun of things As life throws out its dirt How many people can really say They're happy in their skin? I hereby make it known to all I'm the happiest I've ever been © Jack Ellison 2013

    In all honesty it doesn't matter much to me whether you write silly or serious. I feel like I know the person behind the words... and that person has a big smile on his face 95% of the time. Speaking of life throwing dirt at you, I'm reminded of when my brother's best friend had his hand cut off in a freak accident. He was making jokes about it, but I don't think they were "all in good humor"... denial is a harsh thing... but what is there better to do, in that moment, than to laugh it off?

    So happy you're happy Jack! :) Yes...I get the part about wanting to be safe. Humor does give a great way to ensure that....but, it is nice to see the softer side as well! :) Hugs!

    HAPPY DANCE time! My dragon taught me this cool Happy Dance thingie... He taught the Trolls, too... just before I gave them their first boat ride... Silly Dragon... They sunk my boat! PSSST I think the dragon was getting even because the Trolls got the first ride... Bummer... But he stomped off when I told him there would now be no more boat rides... till it's UNSUNK and fixed... He had the audacity to tell me to call the witch... Yeah right! She'd laugh me out of house and home... for a week...
