Nothing but a ghost

No heart has she,

Her soul is blank.

Empty as the sea,

dark and rank.

She lives in misery,

In swamps of hate.

There is no mystery,

of her soulless state.

She sucks the life

leaves nothing but venom.

Twists the knife

Into her victim.

Yet the joke you see is on her

Who she pains the most,

Emptiness to endure,

When you are nothing but a ghost.

 

Is it crazy to be happy or happy to be crazy

Happy Happy

Happy Happy

My friends and I are happy
Does that make us strange?
We like to be a bit snappy
Our thoughts we rearrange.

Yep we have things that are sad
Some quite depressing
Some things make us mad
But we won’t be stressing.

We laugh cuz we can
We do it quite often
Our thoughts often ran
Our brains sometimes soften.

Some call us crazy
Some call us mad
That’s just cuz were lazy
Don’t want to be sad.

So come join us and dance
Come jump in the rhyme
Enjoy the romance
Because when you are dead
It will be for a long time.

Evil behind a pretty face

Evil face

Such a pretty young face,
to hide such a dark heart.
To show no trace
Of her black art.

She weaves the pain
The heartless schemes.
Destroys the name,
And all her dreams.

Who knew such a vicious snake
Could crawl and creep
just for evil’s sake
Disturb the sleep.

Of other souls and beings
Just for a comedy,
To create the beginnings
Of tragedy.

All is lost now.
Nothing is left.
She can but bow,
and be bereft.

Living with Gratitude not negativity

negativity butterfly

What is it with negative people? Always looking for something to complain about. You know the type if the sun is out they might get a sunburn. If it is raining their hair gets frizzy or their arthritis acts up. They hate everybody and everything.

There is so much to be grateful for. We live in a time where most of us have enough to eat, clean water is delivered to our homes. We don’t have to work sun up to sun down just to make enough to feed ourselves. With all the appliances in the kitchen cooking takes at most a couple of hours instead of days. Our lifespan is twice what it was just a couple of generations ago. Most of us have access to health care of some kind. A lot of people are lucky enough to own a bit of property. We go on vacations unheard of except for the very wealthy in the recent past. Our children survive being born and thrive for the most part. We have authorities to protect us and the individual doesn’t have to protect himself from robbery and murder. Entertained all day long with television and electronic devices. Thinking nothing of jumping in a car and going hundreds of miles. Education is the norm for most people today when even literacy used to be only for the very few. Although far from perfect most countries have freedom of religion.

Other parts of the world are not so lucky. People live in fear every day. Getting enough to eat is a challenge. Many die from lack of just clean water. Thousands are murdered in the name of religion. Education specially for women is unheard of. Many cannot read and are at the mercy of their male relatives. People work long hard days at physical labor just to bring home enough money for a bit of food. They die at a young age for a lack of any proper medical care.

Perhaps we should take a minute and be thankful that we live in the society we do instead of complaining all the time about what we don’t have.
