Weightier Matters

Weightier Matters

Weightier Matters

More things to life than the frivolous

More things to amaze and astound us

The beauty and grace that abound us

The works of His hands, how marvelous



The smile of my miss, that lights my day

Her charms, her kiss, drives pain away

Her figure, her hips, not in vain they sway

The curve of her lips turns life to play



Mom and dad, and brothers no sister

Bonded by the blood they say is thicker than water

The love we share that refuses to flutter

Grateful for food and clothes and comfy shelter



Me and my friends, the teases and laughter

The times we win, the celebrations after

When times are bad, and we strive to be better

The good things of life, the things that matter

  1. Yeah. Life can be very beautiful and so ‘full of cheer’ if we ‘pause to stare’. If we pause to ponder on our blessings instead of anxiously counting our loses, counting the meagre amount in our bank accounts.

    Good one Black Caesar.

    1. @Hymar gracias. Yeah life is full moments so good, they dumbfound us, so it’s best we overcome the bad moods that confound us and bask in the good all around us…. Rambling

      love those lines of yours, maybe I could add them to my poem for more beauty.

  2. Not bad but this could be way more better.
