This Life Thing

Is this life thing more trouble than its worth?

Here on Earth.

So what, you’re born, you live, you die.

But why?

This may be a temporary mood.

I was born nude.

Near Death Experience 2

When you look in the mirror and see nothing you know you’re dead.

So a kid said.

When I looked and saw nothing I said God I’m dead and I did nothing, what a disgrace.

I looked again, there I was staring me in the face.

Iran U.S.

Iran and the U.S. don’t trust each other and with good cause.

They remember past wars.

The Iranian powers that be are full of hate.

The Americans, God help us, will not wait.

Oil anyway pollutes the Earth.

This is my tuppence hapenny worth.

Do both sides regard each other as mad or just bad?

I am sad.

Revenge is not a pretty thing, we all love our country, where is a good king?

Hate and greed for power can lead to all out war.

That is not what we are on Earth for.

Right now no one has full control of the situation.

Each may bring death to their nation.

And to many sisters and brothers.

This happens when people don’t care about others.

My poem does not say to Hell with you all.

Read the writing on the wall.

Ok, I’ll have to do better than my best.

I failed the test.

Whose test? Mine.

I did not write the perfect line.

Is a line all it takes?

To end heartbreaks.

Possibly slightly more, to proceed at length would be to bore.

What’s the point of writing about how hard it is to be me?

All I want to do is set you free.

Who must I set free first, me?

Free from Hell and Purgatory.

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

Otherwise leave me alone.

If I don’t do it, who?

Maybe you.

Alright I’ll try.

Before I die.
