Well dear friend.....it does make ya wonder doesn't it?...About how fortunate we are....about "Is there really a God?"....about "why?"......Yep, this world really is going to hell on a bobsled...and sometimes I just sit back and wonder why? Morals gone to hell?...Yep.....Prayer becoming a way to ask for material things, (except in school?)...yep.....greed, sex, etc.?....Yep...but my day was pretty good considering I'm a Toerag....?...Hope your's was tolerable......Great work as usual....

Human suffering - a subject very dear to my heart, we do have a lot to be grateful for don't we? Wonderful work.

NOT SURE IF I AGREE WITH THE WHOLE PERSPECTIVE THING. SURE I AM HAPPY TO BE WELL BUT THAT ALSO MEANS THAT WHAT OTHERS MAY CONSIDER MINOR PROBLEMS BECOME MUCH MORE SIGNIFICANT AND ANNOYING OR WORRYING OR DISTRESSING. IF YOU HAVE JUST HAD SOMEONE YOU LOVE DIE YOU DON'T GIVE A **** ABOUT YOUR FINANCIAL SITUATION BUT NO ONE I KNOW HAS DIED RECENTLY AND I AM CONSTANTLY HASSLED ABOUT THE FACT THAT I HAVE BLOWN ABOUT THREE THOUSND POUNDS IN THE LAST FEW WEEKS AND HAE NO MONEY LEFT. I KNOW SOME MAY THINK THAT IS A SELFISH OPINION BUT IT ISN'T. I AM NOT SAYING I HAVE NO SYMPATHY FOR OTHERS BUT BECAUSE I AM FORCED TO PLAY THE GAME OF LIFE IN THE WAY OF THE MONEY GRABBING WORLD I HAVE CONCERNS OF MY OWN AND THEY HASSLE ME GREATLY TOO

This is deep yet on the surface stairing each of us in the face everyday. Thanks for reminding me to "stop and smell the roses"! =) Justina

Don't take for granted what you have today, because it might not be here tomorrow!

I feel quilty that my world is so perfect and I am so at peace...but I thank the Lord, I know its his doing not mine...and say a pray for all those who are hurting...LJA and I pray daily for peace when we give thanks to God.

It is sad that there is so much pain and suffering in this world. Your poem points this out in your usual brillian manner, but I just have to say that millions of people are also blessed with good health, make love to their own true love, enjoyed a good meal, sleep with the window open and work doing something they really like to do. I'm thankful to say I'm one of them.
