Quite A Short Journey



Should be more laughter It'd be so much better Smile at your neighbours An attention getter Stand up and holler We're all human beings Why treat our brethren With actions so mean Just call me a dreamer And maybe I am Better than moaning To beat the band Don't have any secrets I'm known to possess Just like youse guys Trying hard to impress It's quite a short journey Time has sure flown Before you know it It's time to go home A journey too short Time to pass the baton Make room for the young'uns And just mosey on © Jack Ellison 2013

    You make an interesting statement. "Just like youse guys, trying hard to impress". First off, "youse", hilarious. Secondly, the key to "impressing" somebody, is to not try at all. Stay true to you and others who are true, in return, will treat you as such. I used to try that many years ago. But, today, I am me. Whoever doesn't like it, the door is right over there. I'll make sure it doesn't hit them as they leave. You friggin rock, Jack!

    I love the advice you have about life, although I have to say, it's not time for you to mosey on just yet my friend! You still have much wisdom to spread to all us "young'uns" Jack! Although I don't feel I'm that young, time has deteriorated some of my life and time has surely passed on by quickly. just like you mentioned! This is a tremendous write my friend! I really enjoyed reading this delightful poem this morning! What a fantastic piece, Great Work!!
