Life’s a Bitch

Really, Life?

You’re kidding, right?

Is this some kind of sick, screwed up joke?

Why can’t you pick on somebody else? Someone mean, someone evil. Why do you threaten a man who has worked hard all of his life, from dawn ‘till dusk? Someone who is finally done serving the community and crossed the threshold into retirement only a month ago? A man who has been nothing but gentle, kind, helpful and dedicated. A man who is an expert in his field of work. An inspiration and mentor to me.

At least end the terrible pain and grant him some happiness with his loved ones. His wife, children and grandchildren. That’s the least you can do.

Please, Life, Goddess, God, Energy –by whatever name you wish to present yourself– please show mercy and perform a miracle.

Life, I do love you. But today, today I hate you.

Breathe

~

When life

throws rocks at you

and you feel scared,

dodge

and play ball

~

If the trees

grab with wood fingers

try to hold you down,

smile

and hold their hands

~

When the wind

swishes your clothes

entangles your limbs,

dance

and hold it tight

~

Breathe, my child

breathe

live

feel

~

Intangible

Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge – Intangible

The true harvest of my daily life is somewhat as intangible and indescribable as the tints of morning or evening. It is a little star dust caught, a segment of the rainbow which I have clutched.

~Henry David Thoreau, Walden

Wind, intangible, blowing seconds of our lives away… live, breath, feel each and every one of them.
