Vale Of Tears

Can words make any difference in this vale of tears?

I am a man of 78 years.

I have my fears.

A world of tears.

We need a cure.

Of that I’m sure.

I’ve never been so certain.

Before the final curtain.

We need truth and peace and love, we need them now.

It’s a sad world without them anyhow.

So start, start now.

In life, where else, its all we’ve got.

You make a difference, who says not?

There is a flower called forget me not.

Long Enough

Is life long enough to read all the good books?

Is every woman fascinating for her looks?

If I read all the time when do I write rhyme?

This snail leaves a track of slime.

Follow and you’ll find me, I am not fast.

How long is life at last?

All is not past.

What do I mean, figure it out.

Sometimes I whisper, sometimes shout.

My aim is to say things clearly.

This time I got it right, or nearly.

Live in your imagination, bring imagination to life.

If you can imagine anything, even take a wife.

Imagine, plant a tree.

For everyone to see.

If you want to do it do it if if does no one any harm.

Work on a farm.

Be a keeper in a zoo.

They are just like you.

Be a beekeeper.

You are a sleeper.

Dream while you’re awake, make a dream come true.

Be you.

Your Life Story

You must live your life so it can be described.

What is a drink if not imbibed?

You may live under remote control.

You own your soul.

If you want to write your life story, have you a story to tell?

Was your life Hell?

If so why tell of your misery?

Who wants to read that, not me.

What makes a story interesting?

It keeps people guessing.

A story is more or less the way its told.

Learn that before you’re old.

Someone else may tell your story if you achieve infamy or fame.

Whichever, you’re to blame.

I don’t always agree with other people, is that just me?

I say what I see.

I’ve seen the world, I didn’t like it said Roger McGough.

I have a smoker’s cough.

I commit crimes.

Or did in past times.

I write rhymes.

What rhymes with sublime?

I’ll get it right sometime.

Don’t be too busy, you’ll get nothing done.

You need to stop and think and have fun.

In quiet contemplation things come to you when you’re in the mood.

When you have a shower you are in the nude.

Is that rude?

Possibly someday you will get things sorted out.

The truth speaks in a whisper, it does not shout.

That’s what its all about.
