Ironies

If we can run away from the truth,
We can’t be too far from the lie.
If we can be right choosing right from wrong,
We can’t be wrong choosing wrong from right.
If we can say love makes the world,
We can also say love breaks the world.
If we can be rich poor souls,
We can also be poor rich souls.
If we can be strong enough to accept the ironies of life,
We can be weak enough to ignore the ironies of life.

  1. I like all your poems, and then one really made sense to me-

    Especially:

    “If we can be strong enough to accept the ironies of life,
    We can be weak enough to ignore the ironies of life.”

    So true.

  2. Thanks for your great encouragement, Patty!
    Yes, we are a very confused group of people on Earth.

  3. Wow. That’s very good, true… true.
    I always say that irony is the spice of my life… which is also true. And not always good, but usually funny… in an ironic sort of way.

    Scarlett & Viggiatore
