Ape Schadenfreude - Poem by Ted Sheridan

I found God as a child; then as a soldier,
a husband, a father and now as I approach
an end to my life in the jungle...it is not Darwin
but God,
who calms my innermost and primitive fear.

As a child I loved to go fishing after a summer shower
to catch the biggest rainbows....

    achieving calmness in the end is perfect success
    attributing to a higher power shows wisdom (Report) Reply
