Rhyme for life

RHYME FOR LIFE

We must not assume doom and gloom

Try to look on the bright side

Or

we could all run and hide(?)

                   ***

Is it better to abide –

and float with the tide?

                   ***

After all is said and done

The world is spiralling –

it’s on the run

But you – but me – but we

Are all in the boat together

                   ***

Each with his/her idea

Of how to cope with the weather

And it’s superfluous to remark

You are all stunned at this lark

                   ***

This lark called life –

As you know only too well –

So full of demonstrable strife

                  ***

Of google-eyed commuters

And unhinged looters

And addicted and afflicted

And sirens blasting intermittently

Persistently –

Old and young like birds

At food banks

Pecking orders – selfish greed

Void of the compassion we need

                 ***

And as this rhyme unwinds

Set the dial again

And face your new day – the next day

Look for the rhyme in life that

Helps you cope with the strife

                 ***

Your daily routine can change

If your heartbeat gets in line

With the creator of the universe

The One who is out of sight –

                 ***

‘Cause many don’t look

Don’t see what’s right –

neither perceive

                 ***

But life with harmony is

His offered gift

To all who will believe
