The Game

I think love has purpose even if it’s pain.
After all what else gives you so much to lose- with unbidden right to complain?

Each year it’s recognized- a little more youth is lost
And you add up the experience – while grimacing at the cost

The bends of the mind only squeeze the heart…
And it’s the swollen eyes in mirror – who tell you are coming apart.

Better to have loved and lost – we already brace for little gain…
But in these matters it’s never been about the rules- but how you play the game.

Dear Life, Thank you!

For without reality
Where would I be?
One would hope
More than I see.
Change the past
Ignore the present
Forget the parents
Or being peasants…
For wanting more
Loses who we are
Where we’re going
Or even how far.
Or what was innocent
Or even dumb
What we felt
Or being numb…
And we learn
Just a little too late
Beyond missed hugs
Or present dates…
And we wake up
As others sleep
Like the lion
Consuming sheep…
And all the fails
Becomes victory’s win
And when we go to tell
Their gone by then…
But I was young
And you were old
And the middle came late
Before the story unfold.

Ladies!-!

Talk me up

Give me life

Dull the blade

Mend the strife..

Heal the burn

Calm the rage

Be the water-

And clench the blaze…

Be a rock

Not the thorn

Be the calm-

Inside the storm…

Feel the love

Block the hate

Be a partner-

It’s not too late!

Days and Time

The longest day of the year
Is but a few weeks away…
Were the days not just getting longer?
Yes, just the other day?
Oh time you stump me-
As you keep getting further still…
Always challenging my space
And my perception at will.
You are but a blip-
On an ever changing screen…
Always with the answers-
But never knowing what they mean.

Challenge

Life is a challenge

And mistakes make it real

Love is for life

While moments are a steal…

Chances are fleeting

Occasionally a bit of luck

And even when you are moving

It feels like being stuck…

So you take a chance

Or maybe even a fall…

Challenge everything

Or on one roll bet it all…

And even when it works

“Fool” it thought near by…

Yes it might be foolish-

But still worth the try.
