It is what it is,
can be the hardest
place to see.
What is
often isnít
what we want
it to be.
We struggle
and fuss to find
a different reality.
But we canít escape
the fact that
simply
it is what it is,
nothing more,
nothing less.

Hi Miss Lori! Long time no talkie...sort of!   Say! Is it true you 'hemlocked' JerryPat? I don't see him anywhere! That's where this I quoted from your fine, wisdom-rich poetry comes in.

See ya around!

88's friend!

Hey Tickles! Great to see you! Your guess is as good as mine on what happened to JP. I'm prone to think the worst. (my way you get to be really happy when you are wrong) ~L
