The Good Life





The smoothest road is the longest
staying alive doesn't mean you're the strongest
remain silent and smug to be thought wise
by who? those with superficial eyes?

this way is constant competition
they have no plans of reading my petition
machines built to serve feast on the served
bailouts and bankruptcies curbed

you find out who your friends are
when you take the doing me thing too far
if they pay close attention they will understand
there is no door for me and I'm not the man

the race and the prize to the swift
I'm fine with that I'll take my gifts
we evolve through pretty faces
face-first toward a fall that disgraces

I have a Napoleon complex
I feel like riding down to the village
to wreak havoc and destruction
rob and pillage
give it back to the families
of those that are dying too much
but I love peace and I hate to steal
just because you can't touch
doesn't mean you don't feel

The 5 People Who Make Life Heaven

They listen when you need to talk Talk when you need to listen They know your darkness Let you know theirs Without judgement and expectation You can talk to them about how you see things They don't get angry or anxious when you disagree Trust you enough to say what they really think Read tweets and novels Never make you beg or grovel Won't allow it Remind you that you're better than that Lay some of their burden on you Let you behind their wall Feel welcome behind yours You feel each other with heart and mind Even if you don't explain yourself  They get you You get them These are the ones that make life worth living Make you love to be alive Reflect you to you Teach and learn Some days the lead singer Some days the band These are the ones You can count on one hand (c) Ron Kennedy 

Poetry Tree

I saw no birds grieve No fallen leaves No branches on the ground None made a sound It wasn’t rotten It didn’t die in a storm Capitalism came In its progress form To take one of my last  Best refuges from me I may be the only one who noticed The death of my poetry tree.

Stargazing
