The Mystery Of Today

Updated on June 4, 2016

Right Under Our Nose

A series of uncontrollable events

We believe and are told are real

Most people go through the motion

Our future is far away

A constant daily reminder of death

We eat , work, relax, sleep

Our dreams are hidden

Secrets that we sometimes tell

Our ideas are thoughts drifting freely

They are mixed whims of fantasy and touches of the bizarre

Daily conversations of the weather and other peoples sadness in the news

Sports action keeps us preoccupied

With daily scores of players and teams

Fancy car ads and the latest trends and stories

Television consumes are time

Faster than a match burns paper

Money hype and the lure of riches

In lotteries and casinos

When we are home we have daily chores and family obligations

Health concern issues are pushed by the media for all kinds of prescription drugs

With medical science breakthroughs

We should be the healthiest ever

Prisions are over crowded and crime is on the rise

When will people learn to help ome another

Instead of fighting against each other

It's never too late

To make this world great

      Gypsy Rose Lee I don't get it. I am not sure I ever will. I admit when I am lost, don't have the answer and need help. Thankfully I have my readers to help me along and get me back on track. Life is lonely all by yourself. If we keep looking there are people who care and have the same values as us. Many who don't and they don't have to be a major part of my life. Thank you for reading and sharing. Life is too short to worry. Each day I try to appreciate those people who mean the most. Thank you for being a friend. Hope beautiful skies reflect the vision in your eyes.

      You are so right. If people stood shoulder to shoulder and helped one another it would be a much better world. Here on my side of the world people seem indifferent to one another and more and more young people are growing up seeming to be angry at the entire world while more homeless people appear on the streets.

      Rainy? Texas has been drowning it rain. We finally get a week without rain in the forecast!

      No need to assist me today, but thanks for the offer. I am just sitting here refocusing on some goals of mine, purposely not fretting about anything that can or will go wrong.

      Hope you are enjoying your day.

      There are still people who help one another. I know firsthand. But there seem to be more who do not. It's a shame, too, what our society has become.
