Yes life hurls stones and pebbles
fate bombards proxies, follies
phonies but hold on….
I am a sucker for one more!
I devour failure like a hungry
homeless for I’ve nothing to eat
so I gulp every failure down my
parched throat till the-bitter liquid
of failure syncs-with the juices in
my emaciated stomach…
Oh! It churns, it widens but I ask
for more, I ask for more! I am a
sucker for all the losings humans
are capable of! I tasted sweet
success this morning when I took
that hard stone on my heart,
laughed at one more lie, swallowed
one more bitter pill, devoured
one more failure down my throat!
I am a sucker!

Hi Tanya. Somehow I keep missing your posts. I think I still have ongoing technical issues of some sort. Enjoyed reading your posts again. We keep pressing on, don’t we? I think we are all suckers at one time or another. I trust life is going well for you my friend. 🙂
Hey Ron, no you haven’t been missing my posts! Lately I’ve not been posting much, been busy with work and family. I’m doing fine, trust that you are doing good! I agree we all are suckers at one time or another! Life is all about putting up a good fight isn’t?
That’s right. I remember you mentioned work and family. I’m glad you’re doing good. I agree – fight a good fight and keep the faith. 🙂
My daughter is growing up, hence most of my time and energy is devoted to her! Rest on other chores and work 🙂
