Requiem to Colorado

Memoriam - A Tribute to honour both the survivors of, and those lost, to deep adversity.
Any words used at times of hardship may seem empty when spoken from a distance and spoken by someone not known to those confronted by cruel circumstance.  But to have a love, a deep compassion for people that are unknown to you as you are to them is to show them your sympathies and empathy for how they have suffered.  It also shows how compassion and love remain unrestricted and unbound. And this is a Memoriam to all that have suffered.    
The Poem - The thunder cloud is written to empower people to hold on to the love in their hearts so that it remains unconquered and not to give in to anger, rage, bitterness and revenge.  The word Thunder in the poem is the righteous love in your hearts that struggles against injustice.  I know how difficult after suffering a grievous loss it is to become the better and more courageous person it is at such times that our humanity and the support of our community are needed the most.

Sh*t Happens

The way our topsy-turvy society teaches people to think.

Shit Happens - Used to explain everything from catching cancer to Tsunamis

Well it never hurt me - Used when people feel others overreact to certain situations; when really people should have empathy.

Could have been worse - When truly things could not have got any worse

It’s a dog eat dog world - Guess that makes everyone a cannibal

Who gives a f**k - Used at times when people should actually care; although maybe used in an appropriate context as it wonderfully gets the message across.

Running out of Time - Even though the Universe has been here as far as we’re aware for billions of years societies got you rushing around as though everything’s going to end tomorrow.

The grass is greener 
on the other side - Promotes jealousy and a competitiveness people don’t need.

Keeping up with 
the Joneses - Don’t know any so why would I want to even keep up with them. And if I did know them who gives a f**k.

It’s a small world - So is Mercury and that’s why they’ve filled peoples mouths with it. Actually this term is an easy explanation for our non understanding of fate and the way the Metaphysical Universe works.

'Shit happens'

I asked them why

Why she had to die

Because ‘shit happens’

Doesn’t really justify

Why people suffer

And ‘that’s life’

Doesn’t explain away

The meaning of strife

And when people say

‘It never hurt me’

I thought on that day

Where’s your empathy


‘It’s a dog eat dog world’

Where many strive

To destroy instead of build

And where people thrive

On what shouldn’t have thrilled

Like ‘keeping up with the Joneses’

Who have the newest HD TV

I guess the question this poses

Is where’s their ‘sense and sensibility’

And so if you feel ‘out of luck’

That ‘your worlds turned upside down’

Then just say ‘who gives a f**k’

And offer a smile instead of a frown
