LOOKING FOR A POST
I saw a post this morning,
my reply he needed to know,
checked friends, he was not among them,
but my answer to him is written below.
I looked at my blog and it was not there,
I had forgotten to put it down,
so I went back to the section where,
the poems I keep, are to be found.
There was the answer I wanted to give,
just my idea of one of those,
thoughts to help us as we live,
that I put down into prose.
ADVICE FOR TODAY
We should all be well aware,
of the pitfalls of despair.
Often despair will lie to you,
understand, it is just not true.
Tragedy often brings great pain,
giving us feelings that are not sane.
Sleepless nights, and mindless days,
forever keeping us in a haze.
Despair is the absence of hope,
buckle up, don’t be a dope.
Fight that feeling, fight the pain,
remembering things of love, will bring.
Listen not to that despairing voice,
buckle up and make a choice.
When despair speaks, so does our faith,
precious time, and life, we must not waste.
The sun will come up again tomorrow,
to help relieve you from your sorrow.
Think good things, and call a friend,
to put your sad thoughts to an end.
For life goes on as you will see,
when all around you, there will be,
pleasant times and loving friends,
when that happy new life begins.
