One Cup Of Life Please

Updated on June 18, 2014

How Can I Help You ?

It looks like such a small cup

Is this all I get

Oh don't be fooled my friend

Each sip has a kick

Drink it slow and if I was you I would take small sips

I bring the cool refreshing liquid to my lips


It burns a little going down

Are you sure this is not whisky ?


There is no alcohol in this drink but you will see it sure packs a punch

I tried to warn you

You are not the first

I have seen people take one big gulp

I shake my head and watch their reaction

As their eyes bulge and they grab their throat then their chest

Don't worry I say

The feeling will pass

Now you have learned the hard way

Life should be taken slowly but not measured

Brought to your lips and treasured

For here we see so little but are eyes can be deceived

You have received only what you have asked for

Some think of it as medicine

A quick cure for everything

I can't help but laugh again

Your headache may disappear

Your stomach also be settled

As you perk up with new energy like you took a red bull

I assure you it is 100% organic and gluten free

So enjoy what you have and you will find everything you could ever want

It is tasty and has many flavors

Almost like a rainbow drink

So whatever your wish may be

You never knew it could be found in a drink so easily

Tell others what you have found

They may laugh at you and say

R you o.k.

In disbelief they make also shake and bow their heads

Only you know different

So in a world that is filled with so much promise

Why can't we accept one drink would be what we all will ever need

      Gypsy Rose Lee If we could put life in a drink would it be like my favorite chocolate milk that tastes rich but goes down gulf after gulp. There are so many variations I would love to investigate. Maybe it would be like rasberry gingerale bubbly with a fizz. Thank you so much for reading. Have a good night.

      shara63 I hear two different voices each will stop at nothing to get their way. So I weigh the good and throw away the bad searching for the right choice. New thoughts pop in and out. Sharing with others makes everything work out. Thank you for reading and making all my dreams come true. Enjoy your night.
