Don't Need A Shove



Am I just one of a very rare few That feels this love of love Is it my age why I'm feeling this way Don't feel I need a shove Comes very natural to this old guy As with the younger souls Nothing special just run of the mill Love is part of my whole Thought that's how it'd always remain The way the world should be But men seem to have this penchant For countries to disagree Maybe us humans will get back on track And live our lives as one Instead of always fighting each other Forever keeping peace on the run Am I just one of a very rare few That feels this love of love Is it my age why I'm feeling this way Don't feel I need a shove © Jack Ellison 2013

    Everybody considers you a friend Jack. (I hope you did not refer to my poem's "IRE", humorous shove, did you? It was only a funny attempt, trying to meet the contest's requirements. ) I am sending you my kind friendship from the distant city of Athens. G.

    When we're younger we are into our own thing... So the tolerance is less for other things... Even our love is more single minded... Life is so busy we can't see any farther than our noses... When we get older we don't just give lip service to things... We seriously ponder them... and learn to truly enjoy life.. Dragon wants you to have many years of pondering and enjoyment...
