The foresight When I look back on my life, which I seldom do I think in my writing, I should be deeper; alas, my self-mockery gets in the way. Why should I think I`m intellectual to have any worth to say? It appears to me that many on Facebook feel important enough to enlightening us with their homilies? If you live like this or that, you will find peace and happiness. Balderdash! Reading what philosophers said, is interesting but it does not change your mind. Nor does reading the bible makes you a Christian. Gladness is a gift and the place for village idiots who lack the ability to reflect upon life. speculated on what life is for is useless; the only cure is acceptance that life is cruel, and if you live long enough, friends may drive you around asking you about the old days, a time you rather forget. No religion or philosophy will rescue you; you are on your own until death.

I enjoyed reading your philosophical poem, Jan and to a degree I would even agree. You do make some inarguable points. However, happiness, gladness, whatever you want to call it can be found anywhere. Since we are not all alike, likewise people find happiness in different places. my 2 cents.
