GRUNT AND GRUMBLE

GRUNT AND GRUMBLE

A Poem by Miss Sharon
"

A bit of humor about our current situation.

GRUNT AND GRUMBLE

Grunt and grumble every day.
We've forgotten how to play.
Every THING just seems so grim,
Taking blows straight on the chin.

Where did all the happy go?
Time it seems is running SLOW!
How it happened...who's to say.
Days seem like a sullen play.

Sit me down to take a rest.
Death would be a pleasant test.
Yet I have no say it seems...
But to leave behind my dreams.

Grunt and grumble every day.
I've forgotten how to play.
Why this happened, I don't know.
Bye for now...it's time to go.

Whe did life become such a bore? Why does aging take the fun out of life? Children have life in them, they play with such a happy emotion in them... and us adults are just so different, we are stressed, we have jobs, life gets tough, we must grunt and grumble, we aren't children. Life then is colorless, no salt in the food makes it tasteless, not good... Death becomes a nice escape, but it really isn't. We must learn to love life, it reminds me of this song, Its my life by Bon Jovi and one of the lines in the song is "I just want fo live while I'm alive" meaning that you must live, and enjoy life while you are still alive. I enjoyed reading this poem Sharon!

Yes, getting old is such a pain...pain can be real.. Aches and pain...
Saggy skin and on and on...
Playing..adventure is the only answer to living a long and happy life..doing what we really love..
"Death would be a pleasant test" a rather disturbing line...but definitely an interesting thought..
I just wrote and posted a new poem titled Forevermore..about death.. you might like it..

Thought I'd see what you've been up to ... and got this. Grumps! Do we write what we live, or live what we write? Do you need a poem to remind you how to play?

Sort of, maybe. I was playing with words. I'm going to post it in a few minutes.
I love this. Brutally honest, rhymed superbly, and flowing beautifully. ~Jim

Boy does this sound like me, at times. ;) --- To cheer me up I watch animals at play. Works for a while.

Thanks so much for your kind review! ~Sharon
Aging is no fun! We tend to grumble a lot; we suffer from aches and pains; And it does seem that time goes very slowly when you view life inn a dark way; Sometimes you may think that death is welcomed; You wonder where all the happy times disappeared to. The only positive here is that memories will always live on. I love the rhyme, you do it so well.
Best, B

Such a nice and complimentary review. Thanks so much Ken! ~Sharon
We all tend to grump and grumble, but we do not appreciate the good things we have in our lives. Did you wake up? Are you walking? Do you have a roof over your head? All things to be grateful for. No, it is not time to go,Sharon....and we are not the ones who should determine that time.As always, beautifully written. Lydi**

Ah, this was fun to read with your rhymes and in fact, it left me with a smile, thank you for that. But I knew it was going to be a good read by the wittiness in the title. tyfs, Sharon.
