A 2nd Chance?

I was reading an interesting article about Reba today. I had written a few words along that line, surprisingly enough. ~

Just Thinking

To be born again in today’s world,
Could just be a recipe for failure.

With the luxury of having been born once,
Perhaps that’s all one can afford.
For when was the last time you
Opened your windows
To let some reality in.

Love those last three lines Eric! Doesn't matter if you do or don't believe in reincarnation - what matters is opening that window - the rest will take care of itself.

Nice to see you again Janice, I was thinking about you earlier, wondering how you were.

Yes those last lines do say it don't they, I totally agree. Just one of my doodling periods.. :)

I really like that.

when was the last time you opened your windows to let some reality in.

The longer I'm here the more I don't want to come back. Especially in today's world.

Glad you like those lines.

There sure is room for improvement Z.. :)

My windows are open, but occasionally it does get drafty. :)

Eric Valentine said...

Hello Isadora, yes I guess it will get a bit windy. .. LOL.. Nice to get a visit from you.. :)

Not many leave the windows open. They prefer to keep them shut, perhaps me too:). A few keep the windows open, but they don't trust anyone out there, so they have grills fixed on the windows:) Because for many reality sucks!! Once in awhile everyone should learn to open up, right?

I see your points cyclopseven and agree with you, but sometimes it's called taking a look at the real world.. :)
