The Feud

THE FEUD

“Life is too short” you hear people say

Yet families and friends fall out every day

As time goes by and life moves on

You wonder how on Earth the whole thing began

With every argument there are always two sides

No matter how much you believe you were right

There is a relenting period that very often passes

Because you were too proud to ask for forgiveness

So the saga continues, blown out of proportion

You lead separate lives as you feel there’s no option

It is sad for those who have honestly tried

Only to have their efforts ignored and denied

But worse for those who just can’t be bothered

To put the past behind them and their best foot forward

Time is the best healer to resolve a fight

Love is the best medicine to make things all right

So if you’re in this predicament and have done your very best

Be patient, be strong and let time do the rest.

Poems by Marcia – The Many Facets of Love

THE MANY FACETS OF LOVE

Love is the reason that we are here

Its universal message so loud and clear

Fathomless and often so misunderstood

A mystery, through history, this thing we call love

Its facets and depths surround us each day

Always indifferent – never the same

What’s good for me is not good for you

We all have our tolerances and points of view

We can think love, feel love or choose not to know

Swap red blood for blue blood as cold as pure snow

But a person without love will wither and die

Like a flower without water starved of life

When on our death bed it is love we will want

Our friends and the family, not what’s in the bank

Love is in nature and places we visit

Not in possessions and everyday gimmicks

Love keeps on giving, it’s a powerful force

We’ve all felt its magnitude from some kind of source

A happier place is the world seen with love

For it conquers the negative and shows us the good.
