Life in todays world has gotten really complicated.With people not doing right and some losing jobs,its lost what we trusted.Just my way of saying what I think and feel.

                            It seems our world isn’t real anymore,

                            somewhere it has gotten very artificial.

                            Sugar coating is now a very normal thing,

                            honesty doesn’t seem to mean too much.

                            ****

                            Marriage used to be a permanent thing,

                            a couple stuck it out for better or worse.

                            But getting a divorce is a common thing,

                            having a new lover before the ink dries.

                            ****

    In nature fathers mostly don’t stick around to help raise the child….its the mothers who show themselves to be the most nurturing. However, true love can be found for those who wish to sift through all the hay to find the needle. It requires a certain patience and the will to be forever alone unless the “real” thing comes along. It takes the will never to give in untill the exploration of the qualities within the suitor is done with completeness. It only takes a second for romance, but love takes much time.

    Love if used in the right way is fantastic,

    but the word is tossed around like a salad.
    love this reference, like tossed salad, just all in the mix..

    you coined the entire subject of the current situation, perfectly

    makes me think of a song I wrote in the late nineties which is even truer today, a great write!!!

    Great comparison. Yes, time has a dramatic change from good to worst. Watch out it will be more evil in the coming years.

    Good write, Roxanne.
    It’s a fast throw-away world.

    You hit the nail right on the head. It is so true. Have gone through and going through the same issues myself- so I can relate. It is sad that the values and beliefs have had to change over the years and the true values really don’t exist- a part of history. I am one that has those old values and I hold strong to them. Although the people I have been with or even hang out with don’t. What has happened to the world around us?
