RANDOM THOUGHTS TURNED INTO A POEM

RANDOM THOUGHTS TURNED INTO A POEM

Oh how I cherish those simple days
writing on paper, no apps, no icons,
just pencil and paper to gather my thoughts.

Everything was not litigated by a lawyer and a judge.
If we had a problem we just spoke face to face .
And in the end… we did what was right.

I long for those days when,
People were genuinely happy for you.
A friend was a friend and they were
eager to celebrate with you on your success.

Oh how I miss those days
when people treated money with respect.
They knew where a dollar came from
and how much they had to do to earn one.

Kids could be kids and they did not
grow up so fast.
They respected their parents
and wanted to be like them some day.

Fishing farming and hunting
were a part of everyday life.
We knew our neighbor.
We did our shopping at the corner store.

I know those days are long gone
and will never return.
But I hope I never forget them
as I type on this computer
text, tweet, and instagram.
