Shy singer man say of his songunsung

for thy pleasure, we are, and were created
tools to muse with
as crayons to a child in my youth,
as smartphones to a child in my future

so these discrimming skimmings of flies on my screen,
bring to mind
a wish
to be worth a dam. I had Boulder Dam in mind, at the time.

Joy to the world! was a carole - common knowledge joy having song,
we sang

oh, such songs, we sang and we danced and we praised the summer sun
for each year granting more land and more rivers and fish.

this is the world where words returned to earth and taught us all we lost,
this is my future

but we are are mortal, you say, nay, I say
we all have mortal mother samesame

so say science'n'conshitness of a rational man,

in a delicately -pre-cisely balanced spiral of birdsongs and windsongs.

Right is all that works. We won. Individually.
An amusing day in my leisurely survivors joy

Why am I still sad?
Blessed with reasons to be glad
Always feeling bad
I'm so sad
I once was scared
of feeling Emotions -
Thought they would scar me,
leaving only commotion;

But then Poetry filled me
with Joy running
beneath my skin,

And I realized nothing
could ever truly
break me within.

When Poetry came
and warmed me inside,
I was suddenly glad
I was still Alive.

I didn't want you to stay.
But I'm glad you did.
I didn't want you to go.
But I'm glad you did.

I'll always be there to cheer you up
even if the only way I can do that
is by bringing myself down.

I'm glad I was given what I got
I am so lucky this time around
being born to peace
I know I have always been very fortunate. But we will always find misfortune no matter where we start... it all depends on how we look at it, and what we do with it.
