"how silently,

fool me not, tv"

the silence leaves not thus. 

the screams commence

scratching the fence

and grief hijacks the bus.

I'm glad I keep my fingernails

as short as short can be.

world's gloried pain

through wealth as gain,

I crave Humility


(I was going to apologise for the coffee cup you can hear on the table, but decided that I won’t edit out the perfect angst accessory…)

            Just today someone said to me that I never fail to smile or laugh at his jokes even when I am sad and he intentionally tries to make me laugh as it helps him take him self so seriously when I do. Makes sense? I love silliness and humour! You are very original!

    Shakespearean, now that is a comment I never saw coming! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thank you for your thoughts…refugee stories can easily fit, my initial thought about the fence was metaphorical, applying to many issues.

    But then, the things that rage within myself…

    Your comment about the audio, it’s funny, after my husband listened to it, he looked at me surprised and said, “aww you sound so sweet”.
    I’ve always loved this sweet tune. It just seemed perfect…

      Whoops, sorry I missed your reply, Vanessa. Perhaps it’s not a direct reply and I didn’t see it because I don’t follow comments. Maybe I should. Maybe I’ve missed stacks of replies. Oh noes. Let’s not go there.

      You are definitely channelling the Bard, and it’s great. Yes, sweet, and with the meaning, doubly ironic.

      Hi. It is something to ponder. Definitely contextual, imo. Sometimes the world definitely needs less of that, and not more, including ourselves, but I agree..there are times and places.
      Thank you for your comment.
