Ask a little less- an envelope quintet

we human beings love to weep only,
that’s what you will feel if you note headers
of all news items every day
one day whining for storm caused melee
next day singing pain of sun scorched readers
cursing an office time rain next day!

  1. Yes, some of us complain too often and too much. They expect life to be a fun ride on a merry go round and an organ playing a pretty song. What most people do not realise is, that life is more akin to a roller coaster. But on a roller coaster our emotions are reversed. When we go down we scream with delight. In real life we see ourselves going down most of the time. When do we realise that the sunrise in the morning could be the highlight of the day? And the downpour in the afternoon is the gift of the gods for a good harvest later in the year? We have to take life as it comes. Of course there are extreme situations we should not except as normal but we should work with enthusiasm to eliminate their reoccurrence. I love your poetry and the sentiment expressed in it.
