The future has a past
and he who laughs last
laughs last...laughs last

yeah and that would be me

went on a trip yesterday
seen my past through fresh eyes
and to my surprise, yep I'm still here

pushed past some obstacles and jumped,kneeled, crawled and ran over some hurdles I've even cursed the day I was, a few times

mind blown to bits and back
shook in trembles of desperation
evaluating life's situations that:
I, me myself has gotton in... and out of

Yeah and that would be me
cause it sure as hell wasn't funny then


He who laugh last laughs last laughs last
...yep, that would be me...


...happy about my future and grateful for making it through my past

Flip it.

laughing last
somebody said to me once that the future's what we make it, the past is what we make it through... actually, I might've said that... in one of my more insightful moments... not very likely... but that's not the point...

point is, I can really here this performed... a really good piece to start the day with, an energising arse-kicking mantra…

strong stuff. thanks for this.

Auld & Des...

I haven't performed this piece yet, I just wrote it off the top of my head the other night while on lit, I get some great insight from the both of you. I love being around people that make me think and want to know more there are very few here that I plug into...the both of you and Lucie bring your A game to the table and I'm impressed enough to plug in and get a charge every now and again.

I care about you guys, keep it tight!

Flip It...
just meaning change. in attitude,mood,situation and outlook.
I always say to my friends: see you on the flip side (other end).

A capacity to learn.
We are indeed supremely educable creatures, with the most advanced brain known to natural evolution, and an obvious capacity (thanks to such a brain and nervous system) to learn from our experiences. Your poem, for me, exemplifies these kinds of human qualities so well.....

Yes! We are vibing...
...and this was an awesome first morning read! Sort of an affirmation that I'm gong in the right direction, ya know? Love it when I get done with my usual morning rituals; then grab my coffee; sit in front of my computer and my first view is the "vibe" that starts my day off right.

This is sort of a part2 to my "Obituary" resurrection...does that make sense?

Very nice. Thank

Uh, NO.

...But I do think that we all come from simiular places in life. I think that at one point or another we have all had reflections and have gotten a chance to be amazed at the out come of our lives. there is never a part 2 in living a situation only a moment of clearity, a sort of "revelation so to speak". I meant vibing off of that, off of looking past our past and looking towards our futures.

Second chances (part 2) come when you have to re-live a lesson. I've learned that it's better to get it the first time! lol!

But I feel you though.

Thank you for the comment
keep it tight!

...flip it.
