Since the World is Crazy

Updated on June 9, 2015

Since the World is Crazy

A Thought

When life develops hard moments, we tend to complain in hopes that our own pain becomes a second thought. Then you hear a story of another person who has a hard moment when thoughts of their own mortality come into question. When thinking about my life at any part of the day, my problems are trivial because mortality is not part of the scenario. Life is only complicated when our mind becomes the main antagonist, then everything else begins to fall apart. Always relax and take that moment to breathe, so the heart has an opportunity to slow its rhythm. Only then can the mind become focused, and most importantly - calm!


Since the world is crazy,
You know what I would like to Say?
This government does not work for the people in many ways.
Innocent people are dying,
Politicians only understand the art of lying.
Our children are either –
Forgotten or, Simply Left Behind.
Our education system sucks!
It is a shame –
Life is a struggle if you do not have the big bucks.
No Talent Clowns become famous every day,
All those stupid things that they would say,
Making money in the simplest way.
The average person who lives day by day,
Cannot afford sticks to rub together –
Have the money to purchase a place where they could stay.
I can say this simply because –
The World Is Crazy.

Since the world is crazy,
You know what I would like to Wear?
An offensive outfit or,
Just my underwear!
Some fluffy earmuffs,
Some paper shoes.
Shoelaces made from spaghetti.
All my socks will be coordinated by colors and,
Lay them out side by side in pairs of twos.
Wear a really big red bucket on my head upside down.
There are many things to do when I go out on the town.
Generating the same amount of attention like all the other –
No Talent Clowns.
I would wear all this simply because –
The World Is Crazy.

Since the world is crazy,
You know what I would like to Do?
I will take Care of all the Sick People.
Take Away the Poverty
Erase the Soldier's Physical and Mental Pain.
Make sure a young lady could have surgery so –
She could possibly Live Another Day.
I would do that religious thing and pray.
I would actually sell my soul if it could save,
The life of a young woman young and brave.

Cancer has one purpose,
Slowly taking life through the process of decay.
Often contemplating on many words that I can say –
How life continues to struggle every day.
I can tell you what is obvious,
An UnderstandingTogethernessAction That Takes All Of Us!

Since this world is crazy,
You know what I can Truly Do?
I would change my attitude into a better point of view.
Start improving my life and a better world but,
If it starts with Me –
The other change must start with You!

      Thank you for this truth-filled offering, Jeb. The world we live in is certainly crazy. So much makes no sense. But as you say in your poetic call to action, we can change or points of view, do something to help ourselves improve or help someone else and try to make a difference. Prayers up. Voted up and interesting.
