run with it

run with it

A Poem by Cherrie Palmer

For, far to long we have run with a sliver of a message,

And not the whole banner.

So,

Cherish life.

Love one another

Defend those in need

And

Make each day count.

Cause,

Life matters!

While many seem to b***h endlessly about whatever politicians are doing and saying, I love what you're saying --> specifically spelling out what we can all do to make life a little better along the way! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

:) thank you Margie I try and keep things simple.
Spot on, just look around the world, governments in denial, thousands dying.
Even now the halfwits are out spouting freedom as they take the virus back to their families.
Lot of people in graves with lives cut short through short-sighted politicians.

yes it does mon cheri ;) slivers turned into viciousness and a manipulative press says i .. eating up political rhetoric with ravenous appetite .. and we get caught up .. with refusal to even look at "the rest of the story" .. well said .. and i agree whole heartedly with the solution your poem offers ..your a sharp cookie my friend .. with a gifted pen as always

If only we could get more people to think this way we wouldn't be getting all of these virus resurgences:( wake up people and see beyond your own noses before you cut it off despite yourselves

I loved this poem, Cherrie! We tend to live with one foot in and one foot out. The world would be a better place if we followed our hearts wholly. It reminds me of a saying my late southern mother quoted, "don't go off half-cocked." Thank you for sharing this poem.-Anthony

Good Afternoon Anthony and thank you :)
A brief but vitally important nudge to folk who just about manage to deal with this wretched time in dark fog pandemic/ But we really do need to look outside ourselves.. to use time sharing, helping, inspiring others and in return.. cope best we can, smile when we can.. and survive because.. it's what we all long for.

Your words really matter, Cherrie. Thank you.

We do our best to respect others... I am aware of my short-comings; however, I can try again to be more diplomatic. Life is always a challenge, but worth the effort. truly, Pat
