Life's Ponderings

It's time to get away from all the things that are bringing me down;

time to simply walk away and leave them there on the ground.

Lies and deceit, yes the wolves are howling at the door;

but I am done with them all and don't want any more.


Trying to be a good person and help when you can;

but you have to remember the animal you are helping is called man.

Some are good and kind and just injured by life;

some others tho are hunters and will cause you only strife.


They are waiting and watching, predators of the worse kind;

they will use and abuse you and mess with your mind.

With a smile on their face and a lilt to their voice;

they can sure make you think you have made a good choice.


But when the smoke finally clears and the haze is all gone;

that is when you may realize that your assumptions have been wrong.

Take heed of the warnings that your mind sends to you;

Be very careful is about the best you can do.


If you find yourself sinking into that bottomless pit;

just walk away fast and say "this is it".

There is nothing wrong with making a mistake;

when you learn what you have believed is no more than a fake.


The skies will turn blue again and the clouds they will clear;

just hold on so tightly to the things you hold dear.

Remember in the end that goodness will prevail;

but the bad is there also and from it you must set sail.
