In this blog I will be trying to get to the truth about what is really important in life, and to write satirically about what is not - all in my quest for The Stuff Reality is Made of.
I also write articles on Religion, History, Travel, Flying, Philosophy, Physics, Meta Physics, Natural History. Mathematics and Psychology.
You can also read my religious articles on our Christian website at www.whatafriend.co.za
How do I feel at the end
of this reel
Trying to cope with a heart that was broke
Not by taking a chance or unwelcome advance
but just in the way which caused much dismay
When me and my spouse each left the house
To find some form of relief from each other's grief
A satire on behaviour
– by P.K. Odendaal – August 2018.
It is said that a fool is born every minute and that you
cannot protect a fool from himself or herself, so it seems that my desire to
live and let live or to be considerate towards others and be considered by them,
in turn or out of turn, is a wild goose chase in some utopia somewhere between
here and nowhere.
Divorce – Reconciliation
- Part 6 - by P.K. Odendaal August 2018
What shall I do with a
marriage that's through
Shall love not prevail when us humans do fail
Shall we not learn from our past while our memories last
Or are they just the source which caused the divorce
Does our experience prevent us from pain when we try once again
Or will it stand in our way when we try to repay
Or try to forgive to let each one live
I told you not to pull my
tail but that was all to no avail
You went ahead and claimed all I had instead
Why you would pursue that which was not your due
Still blows my mind and leaves me blind
To see what dent you will make in the end
In my mind and my soul which is surely your goal
If I could turn back the
clock in this moment of shock
Which caused me to make so big a mistake
I would be better off now as I am anyhow
And would not repent some stupid event
Which brought me hence to recompense
For some unknown fate which has of late
Deprived me of my labour's bait
Not knowing how to free my mind of things which have become unkind
written too much about marriage and too little about divorce, both of which is
nowadays such an integral pastime of humanity. It will reach its apex soon when
the number of marriages equals the number of divorces.
intimately involved in both these pastimes, I have written a few poems on
divorce with the realization that a divorce is much more than just receiving a piece
of paper that your marriage has been dissolved – as if a divorce can be so cryptically
or euphemistically described.
to God – a poem by P.K. Odendaal – August 2016.
For a mere
mortal like me, and a very ignorant one at that, I can make no other rational
deduction than that God had created Himself. It is therefore with humility and
wonder that I composed this Ode to God:
God, what happened on the instant you made yourself?
no mountains to tremble or thunders to rejoice,
There was no
human or angel to bow before and adore you,
greatest miracle of all was born without a sigh.
