Making do with less,
is something we should all do,
Corporations and associations,
make us fear we need new.
But life way back was much simpler,
yet people were just as happy,
They had everything their lives did need,
they weren't nearly quite as sappy.
People today feel they need to conform,
or coward out of sight,
A life without the newest toy,
would obviously be a horrible fright!
On the contrary people,
this stuff is clouding our minds,
Remember what it was like to be outdoors,
our hair blowing in the winds?
The games outdoors give more than just fun,
you get exercise, nature and friends,
Computer, video and tablet games,
lock you up with no clear end.
TV's and movies are always great fun,
but do nothing but desensitize your brain,
Sure you may learn a thing here or there,
but eventually you will be left drained.
So turn it all off, put it away,
remember the simpler ways,
Life before was great and fun,
before all this unnecessary haze.
More Poems about Life
Things that make life easier or happier or better
in the long run are often harder in the short run.
Every day we have the opportunity to begin life anew.
Peggy La Cerra
It's a recession when your neighbour loses his job: it's a depression when you lose yours.
Harry S. Truman
Don't let a man put anything over on you except an umbrella.
Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.
Hans Christian Andersen
Life is a succession of lessons, which must be lived to be understood.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Life is very short, and there's no time for fussing and fighting my friends.
Your subconscious mind is programmed by your thoughts and is incredibly powerful in drawing what you think about most of the time to your life.
Andrii Sedniev, The Achievement Factory
It isn't what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.
