The joy of Life comes, from always Learning while Living.

Updated on October 27, 2011

"He who fights and run away"

Just Imagine going through the same thing over and over, again and again, who would you then blame ?

There is this one thing

I can guarantee everyone

That I will no longer do.

That is to waste any more

of my already limited time

here on earth.

Aimlessly Arguing,

Senselessly debating,

Foolishly quarreling

Becoming hostile

Eventually fighting with you.

That “you” means anyone,

I really don't care

Who “you” are!

Because up to this point

this is possibly the very best

lesson in life.

That I have learned so far.

Not again, for me,

to suffer the likes

of Stress. No!

If I do,

I would have no doubt

lost my mind.


Gone completely mad.

For me to knowingly

Carry on indulging

in something.

That I know

will always end up

making everyone involved.

Look stupid,

while inside they feel

Miserable and Sad.

I heard them say

Only a fool

breaks his own heart

That sounds so true,

If they can find

that fool who will

volunteer to play

that leading part.

I am definitely not a fool,

so they could not possibly

be thinking about me.

No, not this Man!

I am one that would easily

leave the likes of brother, sister,

sex, wealth, house,

and all the land.

Before I let anyone,

make a fool of me

Or let then force me to accept

the role of that foolish

leading Man.

You bet i'll be back,

if only just to prove

what I did was best

meant sincerely for

the greater good.

So that those

who are now following along

Would learn

and be rewarded Knowing

they got out, and ran to

wisdom and health

while they still could!

And just as I now remember

What the great Robert Nestor Marley said

That he who fights and run away

Have most definitely

insured himself of one victory

That he

Will live to fight another day.

      Thank you jlald . It's from the difference of opinion come the greatest decisions !

      These are not my words her but I join with its author:

      The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right place but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

      Being able to agree to disagree is a valuable skill. A difference in opinion should not lead to disrepectful behavior/actions. Well written!!

      I guess one have to wait a little to be able to post, back to back comments, but as long as I do not forget.

      "Since I have been there for a long time" I celebrate with you that beautiful freedom that is, to be stress free. It's so easily taken for granted, but stress is quite dangerous, its dirty hands are in every sickness there is(chamomile tea helps a little)

      Am smiling but I do feel like an octopus, "LOL" you guys are good.

      Yes Cardisa there are those whose spirit is one of anger and usually they are not aware, it becomes their norm even unknowing to them. I have come to know that their only true life lessons must then come from the things that people like us, does easily, and that is to "Think"

      Theirs is spirit of confusion, they simply react without thought, and cunningly tries lure you in to join them, be aware that initial part is done quite peacefully, like fishing. But if you do not fall prey , their only recourse is to find another victim, get even more upset with you, OR learn that you will no longer be glutinous, easy victim.

      That's where they feed, in stressful situations, it's their norm, who else will be right at home in conflicts.

      That's when you will know when a given situation, is a hopeless one for you.

      You got to know when to fold em!

      I will ask "AE" to post the Gambler, K. Rogers for me. LOL.

      Blessings Samuda /Cardisa. Thanks and Give Thanks.

      Thank you very much epigramman, Your eyes beheld a sight for which my entire life still yearns. So in reverence and as that constant reminder, I use his image in most correspondence instead of mine. Give Thanks. For you being able to see him I now share a sincere smile with you. It's the reason for which I am a pretty strong human person today. I grew up on his music and my dear mother used the Bible and his lyrics as the words we grew by. "Give me the food and let me grow" Yes I will forever give credit to my mentor Hon .Robert Nestor Marley.

      Yes we share in common the terrific and "poised" Samuda/Cardisa and from my view well on her way,Blessings and very nice to meet you also, "Irie man" Give Thanks.

      ...well a perfect poetic manifesto of the meaning of life and yes please pay a visit to my favorite Jamaican gal CARDISA and a hub buddy of mine and terrific writer - as for me I saw Bob Marley and the Wailers back in 1978 at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto and then years later after Bob died I saw his band play with his wife Rita - so Bob's been a big part of my life too and yes I truly do love reggae music -

      Thanks 'ae" I have never seen the peace that ever came from war to this day , so if I can share that war never brings peace but rather a quiet respite before the retaliation.

      Yeah for Mr. Marley its only been all my life with him.lo.

      What's good for us we must always find ways of doing them , no regrets .

      You have a good point here, it's better to walk away. Everyone has a different view on life and who can say what view is totally correct. I like Marley's quote.. Thank you for sharing..Cheers
