Dolce - Poem by Aldo Kraas

That dolce life
Was made by God
And given to me by God
So that I could live it
From one day to the next
But I know that in my life
There are things that
Are not so pleasant
That some people always do to me
By ignoring me, and not saying please or thank you
Also I find that people like that are not so sensitive to others
Or more selfish and hostile to others
Because I need to show my interest in them
And maybe by than they will have a wake up call
I need to remember that hunan beings have their faults also
In life
I feel that I need to worry about myself more
And not them
Even though they might have something against me
That is fine
If they do that they must keep to themselves
So they don't offend me at all
The piece of that dolce life
I want to give you
My dear friend
So you can live it to the fullest
Each day
Please remember that I don't expect any payment for it
Because life can't be bought with money
And life is a precious gift
That our father gave to us
Also remember that I go that extra mile for you
Each day
Also please remember that the things that I do for you
I do out of kindness
I am not planning to let you down
Or to starve
Because I want you to get well
And have a life
I know that we shouldn't treat a human being like an animal
And neither an animal badly
But please remember that we have consequences in life
And for every action there is a reaction
I know that in life there is a price to pay when we do bad things to Others my friend
But when we do good things to others God give us a reward my friend
I don't want to sit here and think about the day
That you will die
Because that is not my wish
My friend
And neither yours
I am not saying that you must die today my friend
Because that would be a nasty thing to say to you
And the thing that I want to tell you my friend it is
That you are not going to die when people are
Wishing you to die
But you are going to die in God's time
If your time comes
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, or Sunday
Please don't wait for me my friend
It is not that I don't care for you
I do
My friend just let yourself drift away
Because God will catch you when you fall
Also it will be ok for you to take your last breath
And I don't want to see you in pain and suffering
My friend please let us know your funeral plans
And the way you wish it to be done
Like cremation, or burial
I will never be mad at you for dying my friend
Even though I have no control over death
Also I can tell you that here will be lonely my friend
But there comes a time when our lives must end my friend
Even when we lived that dolce life
My friend people are not kind to that dolce life
Because they abuse it by smoking too much, by taking too much drugs, and drinking too much
Also they are too greedy because they want more money or more Material things in life
Because they believe that money and material things will make them Happy
That is not true
Also my friend money brings comfort and nothing else
Yes my friend money is evil
And also money talks my friend

    A very profound piece, my friend. Had to stop and think about this for a while.
    I'm sure that was your intend. Excellent work.
