On life and its vagaries

When I Pick Myself Up and Start to Walk

with 2 comments

Poetry is something that makes sense out of the jumble that we see around. I can barely do that. But I amuse myself with the rhythms that filter into me and fashion thoughts (?) to suit them. I do not experiment with rhymes usually; but this is an effort in that line. It’s a lame one I know.  I hope it’s humorous in some way!

When I Pick Myself Up and Start to Walk

When I pick myself up and start to walk

I am in need of a staff that doesn’t balk!

And when I sit down, preparing to talk

I desire listeners who fear not the clock!

When I lie down, I want a bed so soft

That to pure etheric heaven I would float!

When I dream, I want to roam the world

And only such places as provides the gold!

When I sleep, I desire one so very calm

That it would heal all wounds like a balm!

When I wake, I want things to be bright

So I would know that something’s alright!

When I ……….. Oh I have so many things to state

That it would be like a river in spate!

But out of kindness to some who still hate

My very existence, I would leave it all to fate!
