Comments on Chip Bergeron’s Poem - ‘A World Without Hope’ ...


DEAR CHIP ... A FINE POEM ... ALL YOU NEED IS ...

A SWIFT 'KICK IN THE ARSE'!

We all have 'mood swings' - it's Human - it's Natural. When a 'bad day' hits, or we are 'down in the doldrums' - there is a very simple answer at that particular moment in time ... LIFE SUCKS!

DUH? However, a 'shitty' day, week, month, or even year ...
is a HELLUVA lot better than 'the Alternative' - isn't It?

"HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL!" ...
"WHERE THERE'S LIFE - THERE'S HOPE!"

I did my very best to always teach my two children that HAPPINESS COMES FROM WITHIN! External Persons, Places, or Things can NOT make you HAPPY. It is a State of Mind - it is Achievable, but may require some Effort, or Work! It's a 'YOU CAN DO IT' state of mentality!

Sure - SHIT HAPPENS! 'Get Over It!'

Very little in Life is constantly STATIC. Each & Every day, Each & Every one of us, who is 'Above Ground' is in a constant state of FLUX, or Change!

Millions, perhaps Billions, of NEW CELLS are growing in our bodies, Each & Every Day! The 'Old Suckers' are being 'sluffed off' in our bed-sheets every night. UGH!

This fact certainly applies to Brain Cells also! But They’re on the Pillow!
Part of The 'SECRET' - if there IS one - is also very simple, working to find a 'happy' or 'workable' Balance between MANIA - Positive Thinking - everything is just 'Ducky' ... and DEPRESSION - Negative Thinking - ALAS! WOE IS ME!

Maybe it's like we're walking a constant 'Tight-Rope' - BUT - We Have a Balance Bar always with us ... my own little version of a 4-H Club ...

HOPE - HAPPINESS - HARD WORK - HYPE ... All generated from Within!

Now, if'n you Happen to Have - Halitosis, or Hemorrhoids -
yer in a Different CLUB!

That's my 'Two-Cents' Worth Story ... and I'm Stickin' To IT! ...

Peace, Friend!

Youre right, but sometimes it's hard to sdee the forest fopr the trees.
Thanks for caring.

Your words are wise and the price is right. Still, some of life's really suckky events do take time to process and recover from. One day at a time. Patrick
