“IT’S (REALLY) EASY TO BE HUMBLE!”🌟⭐🌞🌝☀

“IT’S (REALLY) EASY TO BE HUMBLE!” a poem, 750 poems so far on Tumblr (and counting!) a.k.a.: “I Feel Another Hissy Fit Coming On! Help Me! What Am I To Do?” Wednesday: June 20, 2018!

Consider all the tears you’ve cried;

Consider how-very hard you’ve tried,

To amount to ANYTHING (pause) at anytime!

Consider! That-you’ve-committed-EVERY-crime! 🙂

And, on any day, you’ve no recourse,

But-to-go-and-pet the Handsome Horse,

Who lives nearby, just up the street,

And is confined, so you may greet,

HIM there – confessing (that) another day,

Has appeared! Well,

Shall we pray?

With-or-without the prayers of men,

Whether (you’re) atheist, Jew or Zen!

Your frail frame SEEMS strong sometimes,

You-IMAGINE-your-mind can make some rhymes –

YET, EVEN-ONE-PIN-PRICK CAN DRIVE YOU DOWN, WITH TETANUS OR DEATH, YOU CLOWN!

The boys, with feathers fluffed up nice,

Are-trying-to-attract-girls,

Filled-with sugar-and-spice?!

The girls, convinced they-can-control-The-World,

Just want ONE boy, beside them, curled,

Whispering gently – in their ear,

“My Sweet pea! There’s-nothing-to-fear!”

AND – that their lives will be OK,

And-they’ll-live; “Yes-we’ll-live, for Many A Day,

And we-won’t age quickly or lose our hair,

And, IN MY EYES, YOU’RE ALWAYS FAIR,

And always proper and worthwhile too,

And there’s a God, who’s loving you?!”

But, REALLY! Who-knows? and – REALLY? Who-cares?

We’ll hold,

So Tightly,

Exchanging stares,

Into-our-sad-eyes, filled with fright,

HOPING WE MIGHT LAST THE NIGHT,

Hoping-the-morrow will come, and-I’ll-see,

Your sweet self, next to me,

It’s-not-hard-to-be-humble, when there’s no guarantee,

About-your-next-breath – coming to Thee?!

SO, BREATHE A BIT! SIGH AND CRY!

FOR-IN-OUR-FRIDGE, THERE’S STILL-SOME-HUMBLE-PIE! 🙂 -leftover form last night!!
