Two Poems


There's something about life
Addictive and contagious

Future draped in pastel
Couragiously saunters
Through the
Matrix of thoughts
Inviting and igniting

There's something about life
Mischievous and tolerant

I smirked at the
Trouble fugitive
Preferring to stay away
From the dungeons of despair
Lighting a torch of smiles
Across thousands of miles

There's something about life
Affectionate and understanding

With a little help
From known strangers
One gets by
And feign happiness
When none exists
For gloominess sucks
And is sledom social

There's something about life
With many faces to see through it all.....


There’s nothing a man can do
If the will isn’t willing enough
To let go the treasure of sorrow

There’s nothing left to do
If the hopelessness of purpose
Gnaws at the clueless tomorrow

A smile is your best friend
When there’s nothing left
Except golden time to borrow
