Haha! :) Thank you! I guess you could read this either way. Personally, I believe it to be 98% nonsense. But even some nonsense has got truth in it, yes?

I just took that way too seriously, didn't I? ;) I looked back at it and it was all of a sudden just really funny. Great point.

You've got a couple great points there, Jade. You've got a great talent for irony-- and I love your caution. Well, actually, sometimes I'm afraid of how true it is. So true, but so oxymoronic, that we live to die. Except, that's a terrible way to put it. We live, at risk of dying, but not to die, we live to live, obviously. Dying just comes in turn.

Thanks for posting.

This is awesome!  I actually laughed aloud when reading this (my mother thinks I have issues now).  Great poem!  I love the quirky sense of humour.

This made me laugh out loud. Your writing is weird in a weird way. Its not conventional... its different. This is what i like about it. :)

Thank you! Um, yeah, I was just kind of writing them as they popped into my head. :) And I do like writing nonsense.

Hahaha I really love this. It's odd but in a good way. It doesn't make sense but it does. I like stuff like that. It's almost like Alice In Wonderland but not at all lol :)
