of happiness

having traversed this continent
over so many decades and years
I feel happiness
is a consequence of some important things

its food, clothing and money brings in happiness to many

as teens grow up
to become young gentlemen and women
Sex is the longing
initially it was love of mommy and siblings,
If any
replaced by pets

in the long run of life
work aside
a hobby is must to pass
most of the blank time

so music, jazz and games and so on come
the aged one mind’s
needs occupation

early retirement
for other than actors and politicians is a curse
what is worse
no creativity
no productivity
no outlet of excessive energy

so keep your mind preoccupied with laps…..

well now not those young ones
not even wifey will
but laps top

if you don't have one
buy will you
then alone happiness will surround you

to sum all up happiness is

sex and real honey

till you have a feeling funny
about the places you had explored
not once
but times many, many more

A good write but we still have much to do if only we could remember what, LOL
I wrote a ,lot of words from my machine for this poem or write.
They disappeared so I will take it that they were the wrong ones to write.
Young Bard we all reach out as we walk through lifes spectre, then as we grow old we have the ability to let others know of many things.
But who will listen to this voice that can talk to the world.
Each one that has a lap top or comp like I have they have a window that looks out on everything they wish to see, this is very much like the way spirit is it can be there watching but unable to move a physical thing in this world.
I hope that in talking to the world my words are only of the best.
Not withstanding the odd dark poem that is a holiday for me to write such things.
Mainly I hope that as the elder said I can write of the spirit and their ways as I have been taught.
Young Bard we are older now and your damn vision of time will one day disappear int the Now. Take care, Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..
