Vignettes

TRUTH

To be liked is fine;
To be loved divine.
Once it happened to me.
But that was then
And this is now,
And unlikely to again be!

SURVIVING LIFE

That I, having skirted
The echoes of war
and yet still be
among the living.
Is a tribute to life
Its battles, its strife
Although few of those battles
Were worth winning.

WE, THE VISITORS

Yes, we're here;
a whistle stop
near the great beyond;
a temporary stay
at best.
So what does it matter,
The here or the now
'cause in this short life
We're but guests!

BEING INTREPID

Dare you not try
To harness the whirlwind;
It won't stand still for you.
So forget about trying,
nor dwell upon dying.
There's worthier things
You can do!

HAPPINESS

Happiness is
a fleeting mindset,
always put to the test;
If not around
It can't be found;
disappear is what
it does best!
