Bironga Chadwick Poems
The Irony In Life
The paradox of our time in history is
We have taller buildings, but
Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.
We spend more, but have less;
We buy more, but enjoy it less.
We have bigger
houses and smaller families;
More conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees but less sense;
More knowledge, but less judgement.
More experts, yet more problems;
More medicine, but more ailments.
We drink too much,
Smoke too much,
Spend too recklessly,
Laugh too little,
Drive too fast,
Get angry too quickly, ...
I'M Sorry I Hurt You
I'm sorry I didn't accept your choice,
I'm sorry I didn't want to be at loss,
I'm sorry I didn't stand by you as I promised,
But now I realize my reaction was misled,
I'm sorry I acted so selfish,
And hurt you by being inconsiderately childish,
But now I realize it was a mistake,
I'll man up for whatever is at stake,
That which is good for your well being,
