Mark Dillon Poems
Would It Really Matter
Would it really matter if we didn't get up today.
Didn't go to work and just stayed home to play.
If we just stood idly by and left the work undone
Cast away the chores and just went and had some fun.
Whoever set the precedence of working through the day
To come home jaded tired, exhausted from the fray.
Must have had a sad existence tied to the work ideal
just like running endless circles on the hamsters wheel.
All work and no play, the bills, they cripple and sometimes slay.
Those who don't take time to stop and say
'What about me, this is ...
A Gift From God
From the day you came into this world,
a gift from God above.
A day of unrelenting joy,
a day just filled with love.
When first I held you in my arms,
I knew would come the day.
When you would grow into who you are
and start making your own way.
