~ My Very Simple Answer To You ~

Updated on October 04, 2013

* For You - a quickly, cobbled together piece ......hope this ride helps you out - see you on the flip side. *



Once, sky flushed green, lush grass tinged blue,

Then turned around for a clearer view;

Now, jade below and sapphire high,

Been living a topsy-turvey lie.

They said new moon, did rule the day,

Bright sun, the darkest night;

That woman was love, and hate, a man

Whose lives unveiled a certain plan.


It’s all hot air, for no one knows

Where Wisdom lives, nor where she goes.

Poor mentors, spout choice words of shade,

That teach us how to be betrayed,

By trusting in the speech of man,

With many holes inside his plan.

Nothing perfect, nought complete;

Every life is bitter-sweet.

You ask me “Why?”, I vote, “Why not?”,

Let’s give this thing called life a shot.

All I know, we’re drawing breath,

Each gasp, is surely cheating death.


Cake tastes nice, mired Marmite, foul,

Snap jokes that make your loved-one howl;

Kiss her, miss her, whilst you can,

Tomorrow, try being a better man.

Bards and prophets may sprinkle seed,

Singing, “ Love, is all you’ll ever need .”

Too much thinking wears you down,

Replacing smiles with drooping frowns.

Simple folk with grand ideas,

Exacerbate their mind with fears.


Food and shelter; love and leisure;

Every person, seek your measure.

Happiness involves you freely giving,

To feel as though you’re truly living.

Taking’s nice, right time, it should,

Enrich one’s soul, too much, not good,

So work it out, the best you can,

Respect your God and fellow man,

For one day, when we’re dead and gone,

You’ll realize, time, is when we shone.


Bonsoir

      Hiyah Flash!

      Always good to have you come by - been dying the last few days lol! with a chest infection, but feeling a little better now. I see you've been writing quite a lot over the past couple of days - can't wait to catch up :)

      Best Wishes,

      Very interesting. I like your " very simple answer" here. So sorry you have been so ill these past days or week. You are still writing, so must be doing a bit better, I pray.

      God bless you and heal you.

      Hi dghbrh!

      Thank you for your kind concern - just as I'm recovering my health, realized what an uncaring, sociapathic excuse for a woman I've been fraternizing with over the past few months - no engagement, and no marriage on the cards now, so I'm moving on; better to find out sooner, rather than later I suppose - guess I dodged a bullet there.

      I really appreciate your comments, and again, thank you so much for such generous comments.

      Have a lovely weekend :)

      Hello R. Q.

      So sorry to know about latest developments here. But be sure before taking any tough decision...plz, well...however, you seem to be practical enough to know the reasons for moving on with life. Never mind and know that I can feel how it feels inside, I have been there also. Its brave of you to face life head on and wish you all the very best for near future. Just now take care of your health...mind will find its own happiness in a short while, touch wood. Hope you too have an enjoyable weekend. Take care and feel the world around, it has much to offer sure.

      Oh, well, thought I saw a lovely comment here a bit ago, and I was going to respond. Must be so late and dreamt it. : ) But now I see your comment to deergha, and I am so sorry about all you are going through dear heart.

      Blessings,

      Thank you deergha - that means a lot :) No point in moping around writing poor, downbeat verse as a tribute to the ungrateful - been there once before; even though I managed to grow some beautiful roses in the manure, it still wasn't enough of a compensation, so have learned a valuable lesson from that one - some people are just exasperating - draw the very breath out of your body, the life from your bones and, if one isn't careful, turn your love to hate.

      Really appreciate your thoughtful and considerate reply so again, thank you so much.

      Warm Regards,

      R.Q.

      No, dear Faith, you didn't dream it - it was carried away by a strong North-Westerly gale, but has been blown back again, upon a swift, breezy, gentle Southern calm :)

      That's great dear Faith, that you are doing such a marvellous thing.

      If we must accost forfeiture of the visage of your resplendent smile in rhapsody to exchange such favourable benediction for another rose in bandeau, so others may be blessedly exalted through your sacrificial acquiesence, then let it be, yet it shall not pass unnoticed.

      You ARE Superwoman :)

      Enjoy a beautiful weekend dear heart, for you so richly deserve possessions from the glorious cache of it's abounding lease.

      You are the apple of the sun's eye, and move me like His world.

      Great philosophies here; if things go badly, move on and make the most of it - I quite agree. Life is for living, for learning and for trying to make others and yourself happy. By the way, I think Marmite's great! Have a wonderful weekend, full of fun. Ann

      Lol! Ann; how can you spread that skin of evil on your toast? :) It's just like it says on the marketing - you either love it or hate it.

      I was doing just fine and dandy on my own until another fake pitched up - honestly, I was doing her a favour - sometimes I think I take charity just a little too far.Thank you for your contributive remarks, and this weekend is going to be just great - won't have a problem finding a real woman.

      This is great, and it's an easy read ~ it flows along effortlessly.

      I'm listening to the music. I remember that song. As far as the band members, I can't tell which ones are mael, and which are female (except for the main singer). The hairstyles and outfits sure bring back memories, though. I remember the 80s quite well, although I was a young kid.

      Have a great weekend, and thanks for sharing this with us.

      RQ,

      Finally! I receive a notification that you have published a poem so I hiked on over here and definitely was not denied the excellence of your words and how you make them rhyme. A very intense and enjoyable read my friend. A definite V+

      Wishing you a wonderful weekend,

      Thank you for bringing smiles to another one, when you may not be smiling yourself on this day. May the Lord give you the desires of your heart. This day, now, I have "pink" eye so-to-speak in support of the cause. However, may switch it out again just because : )

      Hugs and blessings to you. Have a wonderful weekend. Be well.

      Wonderful hub. I always feel like I am reading from a highly intelligent individual when I pop over to your hub side.

      Get well for your health.

      Walk away and don't let that dear heart of yours get broken .

      Take care and have a great weekend.

      A little sad and reflective but with chinks of hope in sight. As always written impeccably. I hope you feel better soon and I am sorry to hear the beautiful princess mentioned in some of your past works turned out not to be your future queen. A genuine soul will walk into your life one day and will be worthy of the beautiful words you will write for her.

      Anna :)

      Hi Katherine!

      Happy that you're well, and appreciate you dropping by today. This one was deliberately supposed to be super easy to understand. You're right there, that Susanna Hoffs, the lead vocalist is definitely one-hundred percent female lol! Remember her being uber-sexy and a multi-talented musician - glad that you enjoyed the memories ( hopefully good ones for you :) You're welcome, and I sure hope the remainder of this weekend is a blinder for you, as well.

      Best Wishes,

      Hey there Kim ( or is it still Princess Kim of the Carolinas? - memory is a terrible burden lol! )

      Need to catch up on your riveting story ( and I never said it was a ' chick flick ' ;) ) From reading the first chapter, is looked pretty darn good from where I was sitting.

      Thanks a million for your generosity and taking time to read some of the verse here.

      A lovely weekend to you as well Kim,

      With Kind Regards,

      Dear Faith Reaper,

      Thank you so much for your candid blessings, and you certainly are a valiant stalwart for the breast-cancer prevention and cure cause - obviously impossible for a lot men to fully understand, although we can relate in regards to male cancer issues, and some more than others, as many know of a friend of a friend, or even a relative who has had cause to battle and overcome such affliction - spent some time many years' ago working in a hospital surgical and urology ward so I fully sympathize ( as far as a man can) to such an important issue of a personal encounter.

      Thank you again so much for your moving kindnesses, and hope that you have a beautiful weekend dear heart; personally, I feel O.K., and receive your blessings with immense gratitude - you don't even have to care Faith, but you do, and that is so very special and touching - I'll never forget you.

      I wonder what your next avatar will be? :)

      With my Warmest Regards to you and family,

      R.Q.

      Hi Wetnosedogs!

      Hope you and the pelted wonder beasts are in fine fettle this eve : ) Well this is Saturday, and intelligence is on holiday lol!...just a bewildered blancmange now, contemplating life's next chapter. Thank you so much for such genuine concern - it means a great deal. It's going to be difficult to break this heart as I had actually just gotten over a heartbreak, and then this one I think, was sent to finish me off, but it was never given the length of time to get that far - I could see it coming weeks ago, but didn't want to believe what the 'ol brain was trying to scream - the red lights and klaxon had been going off.

      Thanks again, and can't guess what treats you're going to be giving to Bella, Roscoe and Jenny this weekend :)

      Take Care,

      R.Q.

      Hiyah Anna!

      I certainly hope you've partaken of an eventful week, and now ready to enjoy your relaxing tenure of the weekend.

      Thanks for your very encouraging and elevating remarks - to be honest, if I understood, it would be a lot easier, but will just have to live with the question mark - really can't get my head around some people. The thing is, if one lets their head predominantly rule their heart, then no poetry would ever be written; on the obverse side, if the velvet box grasps the reigns of its own destiny, you are always open to be hurt by the unscrupulous - bit of a ' Catch 22 ' , situation - maybe it's wiser to strike a happy medium; then again, how many wise people ever fall in love? There's no cut and dried answer, it seems - perhaps one day......

      Really good to have you here Anna, and thank you.

      Best Wishes for a pleasant weekend,

      R.Q.
