    Awakened by the light of day
    Lost the cable yesterday
    Failed to pay a bill
    Again...

    Wish I had
    An able friend

    Mortgage
    Took me
    To the house

    Food enough
    To feed a mouse

    Bailing out
    The Wall Street gang
    Left me begging yet again

    Motorcar is out of gas
    Registration almost lapsed
    Whopping slice of humble pie

    Time to tithe with

    Fruitful eyes ~

    By Their Fruits

    Yes indeed, its takes a large slice of Humble Pie to make it in these days and times, 1poetsought, that's what makes the tuff get going, when the going get rough, America, the fall before Rome!

    Times are tough and promised to get even tougher, before getting better, but I sense something new and special in the air that’s rekindling old-school attitudes of brothers and sisters helping each other make it through these stormy times.


    Be Blessed!

    1poetsought - Loved the flow. Loved the cadence. And take heart! Often, it's when we are beaten down the most that we discover our greatest talents and strengths that were there all along, even after eating that humble pie. I indeed like this work and its lesson. Namyh

    This is so true! In our darkest hour, is when we truly understand WHo We Are,and how resiliant we are.

    I feel you poet...deeply.

    Flow on...let this time be a pot from which your writing pen is inspired. Hardships in our lives inspire beautiful pieces of work.
