I wonder about despair and how completely

it has infected so many here in my own

country, and how much it is apparent in 

almost everything I see.

 

I wonder about despair in the youth,

or those in their early mid years,

anywhere from teenagers to those 

who happen to be in their early fifties.

 

It's a there in a large swath of folks,

almost as though it was passed down

in heredity, by their genetic make up,

at least it feels as such.

 

There's the doldrums, this feeling

that you do what you do, and 

nothing ever changes much,

You wake up, go to work,

on the weekend go down

to the Costco,

 

And you feel taxed, and life

seems less and less significant

And everybody is getting the same

news feed from the iphone

which they carry with them 

everywhere they go.

 

And I feel like technology 

seems to show no sensibility

As if it was done only

for those who get hired

and get a good paycheck

can feel rewarded 

 

dismissing everyone else,

and even they feel 

this same sadness somehow.

 

I feel all the beautiful people

with all the wealth that they might

hold still feel lost

knowing that they will lose their

looks and be old 

someday.

 

I feel I still do

wish, that I met my grandfather

who fought in World War I

 

I feel as though I missed

something when life 

was once more simpler

 

than it seems to be today.

The Lark, an original song.

You want to be significant

And yet you have no clue

 

what it means to be 

a complete object failure

And still find some happiness

in life.

 

Peace!

  • Hey kfools.. does this help? 


  • By Vegas

    Liberals are going to hell.


  • grgle



  • Where’s at @slideman?


  • Hola


  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach.

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • Where does it say 2?


  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now. 



  • Hey kfools, did you lose your securtiy cert? On my browser it is saying your site is not secure?


  • Mine too. I'm looking into it.


  • Mine too. 


  • I thought it was my location.. 


  • Just gave to renew the security cert. No big deal I'll do it tonight


  • OK thanks

     



  • Happy Anniversary, America... on your Civil Union.


  • All lives matter.


  • Double post deleted.

    Scroll the other way for a while and you'll see me saying that these days the chat box ain't gonna work as one has to be quick on one's feet. The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.

     

    This one is made for me. 


  • By teacher

    Being offended does not make one correct. 


  • By teacher

    Some few days before the next election Mr. Fools is gonna pin my horse thread. it's gonna be horrible, I shall endevour every day to bring some some fresh. 

     

    I still own this cat box.


  • By teacher

    "I'm coming to you for ask a quick favor."


  • By teacher

    "Anyone that places a color in front of their name is racist." That one is not mine, got it from another member. 


  • Where’s all the hot bitches? 


  • By teacher

    Kidding me?
