“Miseries Defeat”

“Miseries Defeat”

 

by M Paul Burress

 

 

 

Not in data base, nor yellow page,

Can misery’s lair be found,

It slips in here, and shoves in there,

To follow folks around.

 

People howl, and things go foul

As this eraser, of human smile,

Drags it's prey, to favorite place,

The bottom of the pile.

 

When spoiler of plans, on doorstep lands

And enters into room,

In rapid pace, it paints a face,

A study, in shades of gloom.

 

Can misery be beat, knocked off it’s feet,

Sent packing, bale, bag and poking stick?

Of course, it can, by this one plan,

Choosing “Whatever’s Right”, as my path and pick.

 

The path is, to better clime,

But requires, some by and by,

At end of way, well, bless the day,

Shinning sun, clear blue sky.

 

 

The sum total of our life, it is said, equals the choices we have made, that is, excepting for the ten percent or so Providence throws in which we have no control over. Bad things do happen to good people too.

"It might seem to be unfair to you, but it's a right thing to do, so choose to do it!" My dear friend whom I miss very much advised me when I was in a situation. Your poetry somewhow took me back to a valuable time I spent with her. Thank you and may God bless you.

A Word from the Writer
Some make a mad dash into misery as if they were were persuing Heaven, and dismiss peace and contentment's as if it were an invitation to the infernal regions.
