How Hard Is It? - Poem by Alessandra Liverani

How hard is it to in a bikini Mt Everest climb?
It's not as hard as quitting smoking
How hard is it to find a word that with orange does rhyme?
It's not as hard as quitting smoking

How hard is it to fly freely like a bird cross the sky
It's not as hard as quitting smoking
How hard is it to never, ever die
It's not as hard as quitting smoking

How hard is it to swim up Niagara Falls
It's not as hard as quitting smoking
How hard is it to juggle ten thousand balls
It's not as hard as quitting smoking

How hard is it to read every book that's been written
It's not as hard as quitting smoking
How hard is it to give birth to a kitten
It's not as hard as quitting smoking

How hard is it to eat a rhino for tea
It's not as hard as quitting smoking
How easy is it to take a walk by the sea?
It's as easy as quitting smoking

(Sydney, Australia - 2004)

    I always love reading 'quit smoking' poems...It reminds me to have patience with my mother who is virtually dying because of smoking. Nice one. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply
