It's not easy

No it's not easy, living can be sleazy fraught badly taught Taut with apprehension, how should we live? some say give Nothing, take everything' watch and judge wait till their feet Slip then bear down ' not with them.. Sound bias test your lie Although it could feel out the forms distant, sound waves Out sent as the bat does, mammal or willow different Methods same world shame we won't open our hearts And so preoccupied we desist to really live To merely drift exist '

I think life was never easy. And it depends where one resides. Some I know do live well with principles. Others like BATS. Mean, unprincipled, but always patting themselves on the back. Puke. I like humble people. Hugs, Pangie xo

Ha..' Got it here Panagiota, thanks for commenting no one is Always right; I see that as a right enough understanding but The blinkers are always being placed on people I wonder how Long humans will comply I heard that rockefeller was supplying A certian oil to Ww2 Germany without which their plane engines Would Have seized thereby shortening that conflict search Me I'd not known of that.' Oh well we can only try our best to learn

Life isn't easy, it was never meant to be. How would we grow if never challenged? 'In this world you will have trouble' is a promise, no guesswork there. For now, almost everything in life has become much more difficult. Dysfunction is taught and encouraged from the top on down in our nation. Hopefully, change is coming. Blessings!

Hello Joe ... in this electronic age, the gullible pay the wages for liars with no names so for many it's not easy to resist the 'too good to be true' offers - well said Joe - Lindsay

I pca for my independent-living 92 yr old Mum Joe, 3-strokes, heart-valve, new hip & more, I put effort daily into making her laugh, eat well, get out etc...(I'm no saint, but it keeps me sober!) actually helps me more than her!

"Let the dead bury their dead". "Let no man steal your joy". Imagine these two from the same mind. Just coasting on the roller coaster.

Living life well with honesty and integrity has never been easy. Many settle for being 'less than'...less than admirable, honest, and so forth. We may have to help someone else to live up to higher standards...if we are open to the good that will do. Your poem provoked all this thought...a write requiring serious reflection. Great content!

Such isn't Joe, The billionaires whose wealth 10 folded under covid, and the rest of us being made to pay for pandemic. Democracy is shooting itself in the foot. Like th poem, its the truth.
