Happiness is parasailing...except if scared like me

Happiness is parasailing...except if scared like me

A Poem by Allen Smuckler











Peace on earth is guaranteed, but how can it be free


Peace on earth is warranteed, but not for you and me

Love may come it often goes, but can we be without


Love your friends as well as foes
, but understand the doubt

Happiness may be a part
, of everything we do


Happiness is just a start
, it need just start with you

Equal rights for all mankind, it sounds so sound to say


Equal rights we’ve been so blind
, we have to find our way

Freedom is as freedom was
, we sing it all the time


Freedom rings it always does
, as freedom bells will chime...

"Freedom is as freedom was
, we sing it all the time"

you words sir, is really relaxing...
the feeling on it is quite beautiful...
like what I've learned happiness is a choice...
so no matter what, you can still chose to be happy
even in the smallest bit, you'll feel glad if you chose to...

very nice sir...

I love the patriotic feel to this and the message of love for our fellow man that this
eloquent write has given me. I think the answer to every riddle to world peace and happy existence with each other as a whole, is all within these lines you have penned for us.

Well Mr S - I'm game if you are (insert 'pheasant' joke) - parasailing? Skydiving? And any other road to freedom? Much happiness to you, wherever you may find it -x-

Nice rhyming scheme here! I like the repetition and important message held within. The font could be a little larger though........

Beautiful Allen, I love the line, "Love may come it often goes, but can we be without" how fitting, and how right this is. Love is very important in our lives, along with happiness and peace and equality. Your writing reminds us of these special gifts that are free for us to give and receive, and the beauty of this fact.

Excellent write as always.> excellent structure as well
