Some Say

by Keith D Allison

Life is hard
some see
the glass half empty
they worry
all nigth long
as the world slips way

No morning sun
my hands
they are cold

But I had a bowl
of porride
this morning
I'm lucky
some say

Those with much too often see how little they have while those with little often fail to see how much they have. The measures may be different but in the end it is all the same. Good write.

Love that ending. Very, very clever stuff, man.

It's not just the little thing that count, it's the simple, too. And "porridge" is much cozzier that oatmeal...ack! Nice write. Thanks.
