A Better Life


The more you think about it
life gets harder everyday. You
strive to do the right thing, but
at times, it can go astray. It's
hard keeping up, with all the
things you want to do. Your
intentions are on the right
track, but it can run away with
you. Today we live in a world,
that is materialistic. Everybody,
strives for more. We've forgotten
about the important things in life
and we have to remember, the
why, the where and the for. Let's
get back to the reality, of what
life is supposed to be. Then once
again, we can find our way, for a
better life, for you and me!

    I have read several of your poems
    I concur with your expressions in
    the poems I have read.

    I have copied several of them to
    pass them on to acquaintances
    so they could find comfort in
    their infirmities

    In this poem you have expressed your dissatisfaction with those events in life that we all dislike. Your words are simple yet full of description. A very good job. Read mine – Cicatrix -

    Very good poem. It tells about the reality of modern life in which we have forgotten main objective to serve humanity and serve God.
    You are extremely truthful in your poem. I liked it. (Report) Reply

    It is an abstract poem that has a very strong message. I think that the poetess wants to send us the idea that the acceptingness of the reality can save us, the illusion can only turn us onto a wrong way, apparently right.Excellent poem...........10+++++++ (Report) Reply

    In our quest to achieve more, for us and for our family, we focus only on our materialistic needs turning into a machine. It's time we take a moment to see ourselves. Is this what we really are? Nice write........... (Report) Reply

    deep thinking there. materialism is something that we need to come out to reclaim the essence of life and its joys

    Jeez! 838 poems? You're on a roll! Keep it up! You are so right about us forgetting... with all of the new innovations in technology we miss out on things without even realizing it.We are the ones who make our life complicated, which makes it harder to keep up with the younger crowd once we are too old to sit at the computer or text our B.F.F.S.Your poem makes sense.
