some of us just get by

you might be rich
I mean really rich
money no object
never a worry
to colour your day

but some of us
just get by

you might be famous
I mean really famous
loved by the millions
stories about you
abound everywhere

but some of us
just get by

you might be gorgeous
I mean really gorgeous
people adore you
worship your good looks
and your perfection

but some of us
just get by

you might be so healthy
I mean really healthy
never been unwell
nor gripped by the fear
of mortality

but some of us
just get by

you might be successful
I mean really successful
ambition and drive
have taken you where
you call all the shots

but some of us
just get by

you might be exciting
I mean really exciting
fantastic exploits
great accomplishments
tales of derring-do

but some of us
just get by

you might be talented
I mean really talented
so folks are saying
that is amazing
wish I could do that

but some of us
just get by

kudos to you


I just get by.

8/20/2006 12:23 am you really just get by? You are being modest and humble! I am an overachiever...I want to do things the best...give my all...when things go right...I relish in the aftermath and take it all in or breathe it in...beautiful poem Warm!!!

Dear flo, the poem came to me in a low moment. I'm a but like tigger - I bounce back! I think we all walk the wire between the ordinary and extraordinary. TY for kind words. {=}

waves to Frank

okay listen up you silly git

money? fame? glory??

what about being loved?
what about writing words that make people smile, laugh, cry, understand, question?
what about flying?
what about it, huh?

this isn't getting by - this is contributing in a way that counts, in a way that has substance. think Paris Hilton - shudders

hugs - from someone else who is getting by - and loving every second of it

You cannot conceive the many without the one.

And you do it with a remarkable sense of wisdom, style and class. You are a true gentleman. This is an important reminder about staying grounded. I'm still learning, myself. Thanks for this.

You have had some incredibly powerful posts this week ... and each one of them has echoed something that has been inside my head lately ...

You echo the thoughts of many, dear Warm, and in a way that cannot be put to words by another in exactly the same way ...


warmandsexy52 replies on 8/19/2006 10:08 am:
You know Huntress, when I wrote the poem I felt just this way. There are moments in life that take on a particular hue and shine in a unique way. The hue can be sombre or bright, and on this occasion it was sombre. As you're so aware a poem can exorcise such feelings and release them out of harm's way. So it was this time.

I really appreciate your kind and supportive words, in part because of your own enormous capabilities as a writer, in part because of who you are and your friendship which I truly value.
