I’d Rather Be Like Him to Things I'd Rather Do Than Smoke
A road toward a positive
A road away from a negative
I’d Rather Be Like Him (poem)
He always has some time to share
You need an ear he’s always there
And there’s his smile it’s never dim
A call for help he’s first to stand
His eyes see only hope and good
Not lost in things misunderstood
His every act so smooth and grand
To him they turn yes one and all
What wonders will come from his hat
And can they have a part of that
He smiles for them and dares not fall
So many people’s lives he changed
He showed them how to do the same
While they took pictures for their frame
For them his life was rearranged
Through all it’s him I’d rather be
Not here alone trapped with my thought
This lonely soul that’s bound too taut
The real live person they can’t see
A simple poem, right? A simple poem, with a complicated conclusion. An example of misleading a reader, Often,in life, people are lead to take things for granted. This poem tries to do the same thing. A simple poem, but after one reaches the conclusion, the poem calls for one more reading.
Is this poem about me? I have found: life is like a mirror. We tend to more readily recognize things which are part of our world. (Just part of my belief system.) In a way, this poem is like that old adage "the grass is always greener..." Have you ever had in your life (or maybe its you) that person everyone admires, everyone wants to be like? Not to put limits on this poem: Sometimes we dream we were this person. Sometimes this person is held in such high esteem even they wish they could be them. Then there is the sadness and confusion, But aside from all, it is life's mirror telling us, it may be so.
To go with this concept I've selected: Rue De Soleil "Dust"
Before we go too far, I was a long time smoker
Tobacco companies have been getting the negative credit for marketing its harmful product, Although the natives of the Americas have been smoking tobacco long before/ it is Sir Walter Raleigh who is credited for introducing this deadly product to Europe. Meanwhile, Andrew Hecox and Anthony Padilla of Smosh, have done it again. They have jumped on the non-smoking band wagon. Whether funny, ridiculous or not, it is attracting and getting the attention of viewers, hopefully to stop smoking or not taking up the habit. Rethinking what Andrew and Anthony are really saying with this video, is attracting a wondrous resurgence in this video.
Don't be surprised if this video and more like it start popping up in non-smoking campaigns. "21 THINGS I'D RATHER DO THAN SMOKE"
