Poem: How is your "life" doing?

Updated on January 2, 2012

How is your “life” doing?

There are many people

who will ask a question

in return to this question

being asked to them.

hear they are asking:

what exactly

do you Mean?

That’s exactly

that type

of people

With whom you won’t

Want to be around

Having intentions

of fulfilling your


You must find a way

To leave

Knowing you can

always make

a spin around

see them later

Paying them a visit


Y had the correct

reasons why

you did not

remain with it!

Keep in mind

that you have


Been there and

have done that

But wisely you

are now going

to show a little


By offering

some needed help.

check this out

You already

know them

They are the people

Who always

require that you

speak twice

Dip those hands

in your Pockets

Buy drinks till

they get nice!

After which

be prepared

For the very same


Boring your socks off,

Same song and dance,

Woeful pity

Not the place

that you will

really want to be...

Thank heavens

you haad already


The strength

and the courage

To leave.

How can anyone

stay In a place

Where there is

no trust

The man beside you

is possibly drunk

Still trying to pull

tricks out his sleeve.

They don’t know

where they are going

But they have

surely given up

On the real thing

So if you are

going to return

where you have

already left

My brothers/ sisters

Be prepared

to hear then sing

The same old thing

No matter what

It will be the

same signs showing

The very same


To the question

Being asked:

How is your “life” doing?

      Thank you Eddy , and I hope you heard that song which I am sure you knew of already. Sincere thanks.

      There is always going to be errors , typos whatever they are , but the message is the importance , there is no cash here, so I am glad you can get the message despite and that makes me smile.

      Ha, that's why I say keep your sisters beautiful memory alive , it's pure comfort , may not be present but that spiritual support beats all.

      I also, had I just have that little piece.

      Well it would be easier, but reality is the greatest living , and it kills "IF" you have exactly what it takes "YOU". and that makes you understand the life you live .

      This is your year Eddy, just take it.

      Your poems are so clever and meaningful, a sign of a truly gifted writer I think without a doubt.

      So much truth in this gem , your poems always leave much food for thought and I love them.

      Take care my friend.

      By the way another up up and away here again.

      Thanks you Caroline , and that's the message ,I simply hope they are taking it as you always , don't shoot the messenger, I am only helping them and myself especially to eliminate the future "IF"s.

      Always a pleasure when your two cents ,which to me is 99 cents . Give thanks.

      Hi Sky this is a very good poem. It makes people think in depth. Very inspiring.

      There you go Hyphen. I truly appreciate , your always truthful comments , it's exactly the way it's meant to be.

      It's also the most important attitude to have and share , because, what else can we do with , It is always better to do what you need to instead of hoping what you need to eventually gets done, and that's why I pay particular attention to the difference between the need and the want.

      I am also convinced that your god fearing life will most certainly be filled with blessings.

      Thank you Hyphen .

      I can joyfully declare that my life is doing great. Blessings flow in and we flow them on to others. God is mighty and working in my life, I pray I bring Him joy also. Christmas was incredible and 2012 is full of potential. What's not to love?!

      Thank you mrslagibb both for reading and shedding a little more light on things.

      My Christmas is basically the same as it ever will be I don't really get deep and I also don't be the pooper, so I am basically have fun off others having sincere fun. But you missed some of my poems leading up to this.

      But like they say there is still work to be done.

      Take great care and happy holidays.

      Your poem is what you see, thats what I disagree is a thinker. Life is what we all make it. Its just looking deep in ourselves to see, which we do ignore.

      how has your christmas and new year been.

      perhaps you would like to to see 2012 a new years resolution.

      Happy New year

      Thank you Senoritaa. That's the type of in dept comments that makes me encouraged to go deeper into how I can best make things that appear difficult , a simpler approach.

      Thanks for reading and a very thoughtful comment.

      The poem is a thinker. Often in our lives we ignore the depth behind casual questions, and their equally casual answers. You brought it out very well.
