Teach Happiness Life Survival Skills - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

On a scale of 1 to 10
what is the penalty factor
in failing life's lessons?

Alcoholism drug addicts
must be sitting down
at one along with what?

Serious sentenced convictions
lengthy internment prison
time to serve incarcerations?

So why ask why some choose
suicide by gun pills autocide
or wrist cutting knife proves

death by whatever is convenient
handy tall buildings bridges
therefore diving into volcanoes

running into awaited tsunami
are impractical compared
to simple death by drowning...

Why do we not teach children
happiness life survival skills
along with their basic ABCs?
