If I didn’t need things, I could enjoy what they are
or, I simply wouldn’t waste my time.
People like to think they are making progress
but most of our inventions that get the most use
appeal to our vanity,
with the exception of indoor plumbing.
It’s humbling to know, we all have to wipe
even the Queen
and the President of the United States, after he wipes-out
a little shit.
How much time is wasted, for something, that isn’t purely appreciated?
We have friends, so we don’t get bored.
We write poems, so we can read them, and enjoy the applause (this rarely happens, so try something else, like singing or playing an instrument, if you need to stroke your vanity).
We want to come to the rescue, so we can be the heroes.
What happened to getting lost in romance?
If you show me a man of great love
I will show you an original.
Few people are original, because they don’t love
they only love, how something makes them feel
it isn’t real, or enduring
It might be impossible for many of us to love
The more that you love, the less you need
the rain, in the spring, can be wet, with delight
a bicycle, in the summer, makes you feel, like the wind
a sunset, in winter, is gold, under the snow
the fall laughs at death
and I laugh, while writing these words.
If I try to take a picture, I miss it
Don’t miss your life.
