I think that the last time I wrote a poem, was for a poetry contest here on ATS a few years ago! I just felt the need to yesterday, and this is what I
came up with. Now...I thought there was a forum dedicated to poetry, but I couldn't find it. I hope it's okay to post this here.
“To love one another,”...we are told,
Is the key to happiness, for both young and old.
But how do we do that? What does it take?
What special formula does happiness make?
Do we show love through stalking, or buying or sex?
Maybe obsessively sending them texts.
This art of love is really quite simple,
And has nothing to do with societies temples.
It’s free, it’s within us, and easy to give,
But it’s masked by the layers of having to live.
Running to work, the TV, and computer,
All of these things have become our ruler.
The little one tugging the hem of your sleeve,
Is brushed aside constantly, until they just leave.
The machine on your lap has all your attention,
There’s no room for children to force intervention.
But they are the ones, who are helping you find,
How to laugh, how to play, how to give them your TIME.
How do you show someone that you care?
By giving yourself, and just being there!
It’s a precious commodity, and without a price,
It's the gift we should treasure the most in this life.
