Some Days Are Diamonds



Some days are diamonds, some days are stone Words from a John Denver song It definitely applies to real life situations A lot of things can surely go wrong They say it depends on which side of the bed You get up on and slip into your slippers Sounds to me like a lot of whoola boola You alone are the scale tipper Can hear you now, “another rah rah poem” Wake up happy, diddly doo! Sure works for me and I'm nothing special Why wouldn't it work for you It's a dirty job but somebody's gotta do it Gonna keep sending them out to you Feel I was destined to spread the good word To turn skies from grey to blue © Jack Ellison 2013

    I keep reading them too and find a smile, a laugh, and sometimes even a moral message. You're a wonderful writer. Maybe I over personalized your poem lol. In the huge spectrum of philosophy, there is a broad range just concerning language. Some say we give words, their meaning, and some say without language there is no meaning and that without it nothing would exist, funny that both are really dependant on the other. I always enjoy reading your poems, although we write very differntly. Good work

    Dragon changes a lot of things to blue and hot...hot... hot... with his fire... He says he can even turn my car into a 'back to the future' car... Gotta go... fire and my car don't mix... besides my car is doing a happy dance to be just as it is... hope it stays that way... Dragon... COME BACK HERE!... I have a new color of nail polish for you!...LOL
