Three Shorts

Today’s post is three short poems that kinda go to together and were written as a result of some conversations I’ve had recently about human nature—

Shape Up

Have some faith in yourself
Life certainly must have
It put you on the planet didn’t it?
After making a trillion creatures
You can kinda figure
Evolution ain’t exactly stupid
About such things

Everyone Is

Everyone is a fool
For at least
Five minutes a day
The trick
Is to try to keep it down
To just five minutes

Everyone can be as wise
As hope
And human wisdom
Know how to be
For at least
Five minutes a day
Consider yourself
A resounding success
If you can
Get it up to ten

Piece of Peace

Life is forever a journey
Always a process
Never a destination

If you’ve had the calm
To read these lines
And think about them
For even a few seconds
You’ve wandered by
A piece of peace
Along the road
Why not look for more?

Like trees and and bushes
Along the way
You happen by them often
