What’s up

the world lulled into a waltz

tis blurry who talks the talk

hopscotch scrawls who walks the walk

future visions blow hot and cold

life with no purpose gets mighty old

seems high five awes don’t erase the flaws

lessons with no plot get no applause

lackluster society doesn’t connect the dots

this dilly-dally world tarnishes the bot

gumption and prudence still adrift

mankind’s journey a repetitive tiff

repeat after me, life’s still a gift

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. – Melody Beattie

    1. Thank you, sweet Bella Girls. This poem is from a collection I wrote on another site quite some time ago. I’ve since moved the collection to my site and publish them every now and then. 😽
