We're a contrary lot, always wanting what we haven't got.

This work has reached the exceptional level
I really enjoyed this, Lisa May. Your observations are very astute, and I loved your presenting them with contrary phrases. That worked perfectly. Your poem is bouncy and jaunty, and your rhymes, as always, are perfectly chosen, but I think what I liked best is that your poem made me think.

    I am so gratified that this poem found favour with you, Michele. i felt i had crafted a good one and for you to express such appreciation is an honour.

    You know I'm very protective of my sixes, but I just loved the way you crafted this.

    Which makes it even more special to gain a 6 from you - they haven't been devalued by loose spraying.

    I suddenly feel like a skunk - but I'll take the compliment. 😀

reply by the author on 04-Mar-2021
    You shouldn't - you're not the one loosely spraying!

This piece speaks to me saying that we must go out into the world and find what we are passionate about. Find that which makes us happy and not push it away or destroy it because we think it isn't real.

I agree with every word in the message of your poem. No wonder we suffer from dis-ease. Life will always remain out of control as long as we refuse to live in the moment, demonstrating gratitude for what we currently have. It's amazing how you can put all of this truth in a poem. That's talent.

Your poem reminds me of the "Opposites" game, but it represents much of life. Your pairing of opposites about many aspects of living is fresh, clever and original. A thoughtful, and thought-provoking piece.

I don't care for eternal youth, Jenny, nor riches beyond my health. All I care for and wish for are love and happiness. Yet, I'll agree with you, we are such a contrary lot of misfits of society. We always want more than what we have and don't see that what we have is more then enough. Thank you for sharing.

What a great reflection on human restlessness! We will always feel discontent until we learn to find our full consolation in the Lord, making relationship with Him our greatest treasure.

Being grateful for what we've got is something that we often underestimate and it is only when we lose everything that we realised we had happiness and didn't realise it, I've had a few of these lessons in life. Being content is achievable, a poignant write, love Dolly x

Your work makes it clear you are a keen observer (of your own life and the lives of others). Your pieces are so insightful, they are a joy to read. Thanks for continuing to share your thoughts (and experiences). Best.

You nailed the paradox of humanity--a heartfelt and eloquent rendering of the theme: People are F***Ked up! Lose what we want to keep (and vice versa re our weight).

reply by the author on 01-Mar-2021
    I put that weight loss line in as "We keep what we want to lose".
    Yes, most of us are well and truly stuffed up... in several senses of the word.

reply by Elizabeth Emerald on 01-Mar-2021
    Yes, that is clever!
