Quest For Happy Times

Filed under: Poetry — migueltio @ 10:15 am

You try so hard to

find the happiest moments

in a life so full of

strife

stress

struggle

distress

one moment you find it

then the next its

all a mess.

 

Not long ago

in Colorado

the fires were

burning while

the sadness was

churning but

the tide was

turning and the

happiness returning

but now we

are learning of

a madman

a maniac

a monster

who will be put away

at the end of the day

when the verdict is in and

the court is adjourning.

 

Two intense stories

in my own back

yard caused happy

lives to fall fast

and hard

a trooper who shot

his own son in a

motel thinking a

thief in the dark

he just could not

 tell and the farmer

who let his

own anger gel

til he drove his

truck changing his

house into hell.

 

Give hugs

to your family

your friends

to your adversaries

make peace

make amends

so that life can

flourish in more

positive beginnings

as a better alternative

to tragic ends.

 

~Miguel
