Life is not too short for “Poetry on a Roll”

Life is too short

for us to bicker and bark

up every tree we climb.

Sometimes we never look back
at the little things
like love, happiness, joy
that keep things in tic tac toe.
We take for granted
those simple things
that can neither be bought or sold.

Failing
to recognize and appreciate
the blessings right before our
ungrateful, judgmental eyes
a tough lesson to learn

We are always
looking back,
wishing,
hoping,
wondering

“if only we could change back the hands of time”
we would.
To change
the things
we don’t like

and become
the perfection
we’d love to be.

Well said, thank you, Kimalee Jones – Poetry on a Roll
