Just Keep It Simple

Just keep it simple Don’t clutter your head Clutter causes stress Too much stress makes you dead!! Just keep it simple Try a slower pace if you can Life is too short To act like a madman! Just keep it simple Don’t sweat the small stuff Try positive not negative Not grumpy and gruff Just keep it simple Don’t intentionally cause strife Don’t be a busybody Or meddle in others lives Just keep it simple Be nice not mean Show respect ,be kind Not rude and obscene Just keep it simple Be humble ,don’t complain On this earth only once Make the most….Don’t let it be in vain!

Hello Deb ... life was certainly much simpler in my youth. Your poem explains how it was; but not anymore for society - thank you Deb - Lindsay

I think that I shall continue to keep it simple. I used to be called 'Simple Wolf' in elementary school. Don't know that I've advanced any since either. Cheers, Deb

Long queues form behind people who can not make a decision. Whether menu, seating, etc., "decisions" are simple when reduced to choosing between "this" and "that" , yet that solution remains a mystery to mankind . . . . .
