the road less traveled is often lonely
sometimes we ask ourselves "if only..."
but we chose the road
we must carry our load
but creativity buries monotony

One day things may feel like they're not working at all
And then the next I'll wonder how my mood even did fall
One day things feel almost tragic
And the next things feel like they're filled with magic
I can be thankful to be able to feel the ups and downs
I can appreciate the smiles and bear the frowns

Hey limerickland. Just a pop in hello, as my ability to limerick has disappeared...haha, to the degree that I possessed one to begin with.

Good stuff to read though. DG, that last one was beautiful.

Zero, you are the man!

the drama in my life seems to be going away
perhaps because i'm walking the middle way
my daily ration
of meditation
is creating some peace that i hope will stay

i've lost my anger for those who've wronged me
they were lost and blind but now i see
there's amazing grace
behind each face
though their lives became what was never meant to be

buddha said it is craving that makes us suffer
but through meditation we create a buffer
i would not have believed it
had i not achieved it
i can't say i'm cured but life could be rougher

sometimes i can't believe that i'm not in pain
i keep expecting it to come back and get me again
but i'm really quite well
i've crawled out of my hell
and i'm walking upright without the help of a cane

i'm mindful now of my interest in darkness
i get twisted around and crawl up my own anus
then i **** myself out
and start flopping about
and wince at the light and it's stanky old starkness

sometimes i should just quit while ahead
it's a saying that is often sincerely said
but i can't always quit
til i write about ****
and embarrass myself til i wish i were dead

but i hope all of you are doing okay
and sorry for curveballs i might throw your way
my usual tool
is to play the fool
i'm a bit of a burro that enjoys a good bray

There's a mountain of dishes on the counter
But I sit here and flounder
Looking for rhyming words
For a limerick that hopefully won't bore
My brain feels kind of dead
And I'd really just like to crawl into bed
But I'll just sit here rhyme
Since I don't want to say I was in bed before nine


Well, there aren't really that many dishes but I keep thinking I should get them done.

Last night really sucked
I think my relationship is f***ed
I don't want to talk I'm so pissed
But you know? I woke up and made a gratitude list

I came up with a plan to cope
And I even have a little feeling of hope
Not that things will go my way
Or that everything will work out OK
But just knowing I can make it through today

I sat down and made a plan
Here I am posting for my limerick clan
I may wish I could just take a pill
But at least I've got coping skills

I did think for a moment about a bottle
But I know I'd go full-throttle
It wouldn't be a slow spiral down
It would be like jumping from a plane
And splatting on the ground

the wisdom to know the difference
is what we're talking about
sometimes we don't seem to have the power
to choose a better route

Hope and Faith are not an illusion
But FEAR is my usual intrusion
An MRI on Thursday
May be good news or not
I will be ready for results
Be they great or not sought
That's 4 days a way
It's on Thursday did I say
But with delay maybe Friday
Higher Power take this counting away.

For the Powers that be
Will reveal what's to see
And proceed from there
With acceptance to spare.

Ippy-
I'll be thinking of you as you count down the days
Let us know what the Dr. says
Sometimes the worst part is the wait
But sobriety lets us think straight
And makes us less likely to over-react
Traits that when drinking we lacked

Love you.

IPPY , my darling dont stress just yet
Wait until scans then dr be met
I'm sure you are fine I'll pray for you
I've felt quite spiritual last day or 2

I think in this life what will be will be
We don't get a say we just just wait ' n see
You've such a good heart it beats like gold
So young at heart no time to be old.

You'll be in my thoughts my dear friend of mine
Loving thoughtful sweet and kind
Your words have seen me thru really tough days
No karma is here & it's time that she pays .

I love you Kathy xxxx
