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, ...
For Old Times Sake
For old times sake, lets walk down memory lane,
Recalling sweetest memories of the past,
Lets feel the love that came before the pain,
When we believed our love was meant to last,
For old times sake,
Let's set right an old mistake,
Let's invite our hearts to break,
Lets try to touch the stars just out of reach,
