i sit here watching the fire...thinking of life...what it means
wondereing why we spend our lives pleasing others
while we wither away into nothingness...just to please
reflections of life always brings questions with no answers

i try to add some humor to my life...moments of gentleness
quiet serene moments...a quietness to my life...i fail
there are always something that has to be done...now
reflections of life always brings questions with no answers

people who have to be safisfied...egos sated...wants replied to
yet i find...im not part of this...never have been...never will be
im only a moment...my words not important...my ideas less
reflections of life always brings questions with no answers

fault is found with what is said...ears occupied with the mind
so i sit here contemplating...wondering...what did i do wrong
only to be told im having a moment...talk to me when it passes
reflections of life always brings questions with no answers

HI MARY AND I CAN 'FEEL' WHERE YOU ARE COMING FROM. I AM 66 AND CERTAINLY THERE ARE ALWAYS GOING TO BE QUESTIONS...LOADS OF THEM(SMILE). BUT I TELL YOU HOW I HANDLE IT; I TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME, KNOWING THAT JESUS IS WITH ME AND THOUGH, BEING HUMAN, CERTAIN 'THINGS' CAN 'GET ON MY NERVES', I TRY NOT TO QUESTION... ANYMORE. I TAKE THE GOOD WITH THE BAD, THE HAPPY WITH THE SAD BECAUSE I HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT I AM JUST WHERE GOD WANTS ME TO BE AND HE'S GOING TO MAKE SURE THAT I AM ALL RIGHT. THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS & FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

Well said, Poet! There are no answers, me thnks. Just keep moving forward as best you can & look to the beauty of creation & all it contains. Certainly our interior conversation plays a significant
in this earthly experience of ours... Who knows WHY!?
Blessings,
Carolyn
