A Poem

Sometimes, I write poetry. I can’t do it on demand, it has to come naturally. This one just burbled out of me last night. I have no idea where it came from.

 

to do is to live

crying losing

to live is to do

winning laughing

 
 

crying losing

loving someone

winning laughing

losing someone

 
 

loving someone

catastrophe

losing someone

helping strangers

 
 

catastrophe

extended hands

helping strangers

Making friends

 
 

extended hands

to do is to live

making friends

to live is to do

 

life is not a spectator sport

 

This poem is a testament to all of those people who give of themselves so freely; something the rest of us should do and don’t. So this poem is dedicated to the people who try their hardest to make this world a better place. May more of us join their ranks in the coming year.

About

I am not one who is comfortable talking about myself but here goes. I enjoy writing, family history, and reading. I decided to do this blog because I wanted to try something new. I decided to make it a weekly blog because I wasn't sure that I could keep up with a daily one, and monthly seemed like I was writing a magazine. I think I did ok with my choices. You'll notice that there are not a lot of graphics on my site. That's because there are graphics plastered everywhere on the Internet and those sites sometimes take forever to load. This blog is a place where you can kick back, relax and be ready to be amused. At least I hope I willbamuse you. This blog is on a variety of subjects from my ficitional cat agency, the FFL, which is monthly, to instructional blogs to editorials, which are my opinions only. I admit that I don't know everything and could be wrong -- I frequently am. Now, stop reading about me and read what I have to say!
