    It's a life, like any other
    needing shelter, food
    and water to maintain.
    Necessary, despite one's mood.
    Other basics,
    sometimes treated
    as merely wants
    are actually needed
    but oft times ignored.
    Human contact
    conversation
    making a pact
    of friendship
    and dare I say
    a loving relationship.
    Can a life open
    up to those things
    that go beyond
    basic necessities...
    Does it dare
    to lay bare
    risking
    being caught
    unaware....
    When life doesn't
    run smoothly, keep
    moving, even if it's just
    inch by inch...too deep,
    maybe, but don't hide
    a life will survive,
    as well as pride.
    Just experience it,
    breathe, and continue
    living a life, like any other.

    Hahahah! We are thinking a lot a like today!

    Nice one poet! How we deal with life often determines how life deals with us!
    "Laugh and the world laughs with you...weep and you weep alone. For the sad old earth must borrow it's mirth but has trouble enough of it's own."-Ella Wheeler Cox
    I think that fits pretty good! Excellent job you have done here.

    Blessings on your House!
