Summer day

Lawn chairs important seek shady spot

Ladies sip drinks take turns talk
Bout places ne'er seen clock tick tocks
 
Time lapse
Afternoon social winding down
Guests freezie recipe ask of hostess smiles no frowns.

Secure a seat c'mon

Free games, free pizza 'n beverages void ghosts

Anxious moments, memories personal, untold overcame

Listen depressed callers speak circumstances emotional
Seeking acceptance another human non-critical social

Individuals ignorant flaunt 'have it all' attitude
Lack empathy towards their fellow man's life solitude

Often times life for some certainly appear quite unfair
People wish hear details like spread gossip rarely care

Wise people learn valuable life lesson
Dumb ones brag 'bout worldly possessions

In the end the latter find unable take
Assets to their thousands dollars wake

What's left behind for loved ones cherish
Time well spent and love given prior perish

Unbelievable today wrote semi-morbid poem
Recent events appear set off internal alarm

Like me, Love me or Leave me Alone
People pleaser's final thoughts depart room.
