A Killing Desire   2018-91                                                               Posted on FB 11-8-18

Cigarettes average $6.00 a pack nationwide, which makes it about $2200.00 a year habit, at a pack a day, which is an expensive habit.

A post on TV today, said that 1200 people die per DAY from smoking or complications from doing so, and that makes it over 400 thousand a year dying from cigarettes.

Again, those are expensive costs to a habit that is self-inflicted. What could a person do with the money saved by not buying cancer sticks, and instead using that money in a different way?

How many loved ones are left behind, due to a selfish desire of satisfaction, but one that kills eventually or disables in a way that is horrible?

So SAD, like many other things in life!

Hope 2018-90

Well, after many occasions of despair by those of this Earth, doing things to one

another, abusing others beyond thinking, it is still good to HOPE, that the world

will or can be one of betterment.

Hope?    2018-90

Is there hope – that the world will wake up

To a common goal of the survival of mankind?

That future generations will be able to breath,

To eat, to drink of nature’s plentiful bounty?

 

Is there hope- that the inhabitants of the world

Will learn to live in peace with one another?

Co-existing with mutual respect of each other

Realizing each has rights to separate individuality?

 

Is there hope- that the hunger, the health, the overall

Needs of those of the world will be acknowledged?

To have action instead of promises, to have results

Instead of delays, to give hope instead of despair?

Completeness 2018-89

Sometimes I wonder what I am doing and if it is correct and worthwhile, and then I take time to think that, at that moment, I am complete in my thoughts and therefore am on the right track of life.

 

Completeness   2018-89

 

Completeness, emulating from within

Realized by and from the solitude of thought

A self-assurance of the whole

Mind and body melded into one lot.

 

Not vain, nor smug, but instead a feeling of reality

Knowing things are because— just because!

No self-doubt or second thoughts of surreally

Instead an euphoria of positive alpha waves

 

At last, peace within oneself, at last, at last,

The limits, capabilities, strengths and weaknesses

All known, acknowledged, confronted head on

Turmoil gone, nothing reigning except completeness

 

A dream, a wish, or an actual way of life

Everyday living a constant battle to conquer

The thought process known, or not comprehended

Time, the constant, will tell, will concur, will be!!!
