Ironies Of Life
It's funny how a hello is always accompanied by a good bye,
How good memories never fail to make you cry.
It's funny how friends can easily be made and found,
But when you need them no one seems to be around.
It's funny how a person would humble his own state,
When in reality, he is not at all as he thinks that great.
It's funny how a north could be made to seem south,
How smart a person would seem until he opens his mouth.
It's funny how some people are blessed with the power of speech,
Too bad sense and reason are some of the things one can not teach.
It's funny how creative a person would seem with what he did,
Until you find the sources he so arduously hid.
It's funny how an optimist would think this world can be one of the best,
How a pessimist would cringe in fear that the latter was being honest.
It's funny how ironic this poem is turning out to be,
But the most ironic of it all, none of these seem funny at all to me.
