~ ~ ~ 
I have been thinking.
In the Spring, I'm able to be outside more.
The colors of nature have arrived.
I like this time of year.

Even in the confusion of my life,
if I can figure things out,
I have a joy to each day.

One part of my time
is very happy.
Can't complain about any of it.
The other part, is terrible.
I don't like to dwell
on that too much.
Only when it reminds me.

Each day I make a list.
What am I going to try to do.
I make the best of what happens.
Don't we all ?

I've had a lot happen.
Mentally it does get to me.
I'm not close to perfect.
Not at all.

Only I do win the prize,
if there is one, for trying.
I keep on going no matter what.

That's got to count for something.

Just saying ~

Don't Get It

~ ~ ~
Some things in life I just don't like.
Mean people.
Things they say.
If they thought later,
why wouldn't they run back
to tell that person 
they had done wrong
that they had made a mistake.

Like they should have been
taught as a child.
Or, was I the only one
taught to be kind.
To think and rethink
about your life.

I still to this day
and I'm old as can be
do not understand why
this happens.

Eveyone makes mistakes.
Has a lousy moment or life.
To not get it though.
To not realize that you should
always want to do better.
To be kind and polite.

I want to sit them down.
To talk to them.
To make them get it.

Only I don't get to.
So, I will always be bothered
by people and what they do and say.

Maybe that's why I don't do much
with them. 


Only so much harsh words are 
aloud in my life.
I've had my quota.
No more.
