Granting of Life 2017-27

So EASY to do, taking life for granted!!! We all expect tomorrow to arrive, life to go on, and on and on…….  I sometimes sit and contemplate life in general, my life and lives of others I know.  It is NOT a given, something that will never end, but is something to appreciate while we have it here on Earth.

Granting of Life   2017-27

 

Taking life for granted, at times,

is an easy thing to do.

The repetitious existence we live,

a sameness, of happenings –nothing new.

 

The birds flying by, making noise,

and bees buzzing – creating honey

The grass needs cut again, of course;

girls being annoyed by little boys.

 

All our senses gather data each day,

sometimes not as good as before,

But with a sensual diminishment,

consider if they were taken away.

 

Knowing what we are born with

and then learn to improve with time.

The walking, running and everything,

is now a normal expected thing.

 

If taken away, any will be missed,

when something was always there.

The parting is not fair, and really

should have been more appreciated

Question of Self 2015-126

A beginning with “I” and an end with “I” with words in between. Written at a time where I was questioning my existence when comparing my life with what I wanted, but did not realize just what I had at the time. I wonder if we are truthful to ourselves or in reality are not just untruthful, but mislead ourselves from finding out who we are and exactly what our true selves are to others………..
