It had everything that money could buy

It had everything that money could buy.

It could even buy money.

Everybody was happy.


Then came the darkness and everyone masked their fears.

Especially the adults.


The children watched and thought this was how life was.

They never understood what happiness could be.


The adults waited and waited for someone to help them.

They did nothing except wait.

And the longer they waited, nothing happened.


There’s no moral to this story.

Except perhaps that waiting for things to happen might never come.


However, working together to make different good things happen might just help take that half empty glass and fill it with plenty of happiness.

Poem: You can float your boat

You can float your boat You can talk grand plans You can drop names like atom bombs But who are you kidding? And where’s the joke? It’s in every single lie you’ve spoke The joker wears a thorny crown

Poem: We get lost when we’re a child 

We get lost when we’re a child We then get dropped when we’re old In the middle there’s all kinds of stuff Sometimes there’s silver and often one’s left out in the cold
