Taking The Easy Way Out

Standard

Ok, I admit it, I am doing things the easy way today.  I have decided instead of wracking my rather weak brain (today) to try to think of something to blog about, I am going to post some poetry I have already written.  I think most of us choose to take the easy way out at times, no matter what we are doing.

Our life is full of conveniences, which is diffidently the easy way out.  For instance, using the electric can opener, instead of the hand-held you opened by turning a crank.  I am grateful for the electric, but it does give me pause to think about all the people in the past who had arthritis in their joints, how they ever manged.  Another convenience, the vacuum cleaner, isn’t that taking the easy way out, instead of using a broom to sweep everything up.  The list goes on and on and we take it all for granted.

What happens if another great depression hits, and no one has any money to pay electric or gas bills or buy food.  Do you think you know enough to help you survive.  I feel very blessed, I was taught how to live without the amenities we have today.  It would not be easy and I would never want to see it happen, but I know my family and I can survive.

It is a very tough world we live in, and I honestly believe it will continue to get worse.  I am not talking politics here, I am just talking about life in general.  We improve in some areas but in others we seems to be involved in a landslide headed down the hill.  Hum, I think I just wrote my blog, and I will let you read my poem anyway.  That’s my two-cents for today.

Forever

Not long enough

The depth of your love

Strong and sure

About shirleymclain930

I am a retired RN enjoying my retirement to the fullest. I liked adventure and travel and making friends. I have 7 dogs and 1 cat. They are like having a house full of three years olds. Now for the rest of the story. My Granddaughter and her husband now live with us and they have 4 dogs and 4 cats along with a giant Flemish Rabbit. They are a large part of my life and I can't imagine them not being around. I spend most of my time sitting in front of my computer working on my latest book or talking about Essential Oils. On the personal side, I'm married to a wonderful man who spoils me and I love it. I am very much a country girl. I love living on our 5 acres on Pole Cat Creek watching the deer and other animals occasionally stick their​ heads out of the trees. It's a fun life.

  1. Taking the easy way out is not always a bad thing. I’m really happy that there is anesthesia so people don’t have to bite a bullet if they need their appendix out. Blogs are wonderful inventions also. A place to share, get ideas, vent, rant, learn from others. Imagine how many trees we would be killing if we all mailed letters back in forth instead. My tongue would fall off from licking stamps. I like your poem. It’s almost a Haiku, or maybe it is, I’m no expert at poetry.

    • Thanks for the reply to my blog. Taking the easy way out, depends on the circumstances. I wanted my point to be what if it wasn’t around any more, what then?
      I’m glad you likemy poem; I am no expert either. I just write what I feel at the time. When I write poetry, I never know what I will come up with.
