Enjoy Life's Ride...

Updated on June 10, 2013

" no competition..other than for food "

" Let's just try to get along "
" Let's just try to get along " | Source
" But I am better than thee"
" But I am better than thee" | Source

no limitations..unless you put them on yourself...

We all live in the pond of life you see...

but there's always one who thinks he's better than thee...

and proudly announces for everyone hear...

hoping to plant the seed of fear...

"I can chomp here ..I can chomp there...I can chomp just any ole' where ".....

"I can chomp up and I can chomp down....

and I can chomp all around ....."

"There are no limits to what I can do ,

so that just makes me better than you..."

We could be friends, said the turtle just you and me.

but..there's a big difference that I can see..

as you sure do think alot of yourself....

Have you no enemies ?.... unlike myself ?

Are you sure you live in the same world as me ?

Although said the turtle, rather profound, I've been told one day I could be...

living in a tank . warm and clean, not having to fend for food like thee..

but ahhh..said the gator, rumor has it one day I could be a fashion accessory...

So for the time being they both decided...

to put attitude aside ,stop trying to " UP" each other ..and enjoy lifes' ride

      kj force, Your nicely taken photograph of alligators has such an attention-getting and thought-provoking caption: "no competition other than for food." Your poem also effectively sums up a winning perspective for enjoying this enlivening ride with which we are all faced. In the comments you note that this poem was one of your "sitting in traffic moments". Great inspiration.

      WOW..you really got into my world.welcome..I am going to be honest, when I speak or when I write VERY few actually get my perception..yes I have always spoken in this manner..so now you can understand why I choose to live my life outside the box..in the garden of life...it's so cool out here, but lonely sometimes..that's NOT a PU line..just realization.." If only one gets it, my job is done"....Many thanks friend....

      Voted up, useful, awesome, and beautiful. There is a great message behind this poem. Yes, the poem is cute and fun, but the message is very useful. We only get one chance to live. Get out there and make the most of it. Do everything that you set out to do. Have a feeling of accomplishment so your soul may be fulfilled. Set out to do everything that you wish to do. Make it count! An awesome poem KJ.
