As we grow older, and hence wiser, we slowly realize that wearing a R600 or R60.00 watch, they both tell the same time...

Whether we carry a R600 or R60.00 wallet/handbag, the amount of money inside is the same;

Whether the house we live in is 60 or 600 sq.m. the loneliness is the same.

Hopefully, one day we will realize, our true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world.

Whether we fly first or economy class, if the plane goes down, we go down with it...

Therefore.. I hope we realize, when we have mates, buddies and old friends, parents, brothers and sisters, who we chat with, laugh with, talk with, talk about north-south-east-west or heaven & earth, .... That is true happiness!!

Often people with the most harsh words are the ones who hurt the most
The ones with the brave front are the ones who cry against their bed-post
The boy you see chatting to every girl
His life is journeying an unprecedented twirl
The girl who dresses for everyone to see
Is an almighty devotee
The man who has a trophy wife
His marriage is in complete strife
The little boy who steals your fallen penny
His dad doesn't give him any
The old lady whose face is hardened brown
Was some inconsiderate mans rebound

So, let's not look at their cracked wall
With our judgy, squinting eyeball
Rather let's go over with new cement
And help them fill up every dent
Just imagine a world where we help each other grow
Where there's no such a thing as a foe
Where we all accept each other
And don't slander another

So, in order for my dream to come true
I, just need you to start anew

Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting.

Well, for example, the other day I went downtown and into a shop. I was only there for about 5 minutes, and when I came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.

I said to him, "Come on, man, how about giving a retired person a break"? He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. I called him a "Nazi."

He glared at me and wrote another ticket for having worn tires. So I called him a "doughnut eating Gestapo."

He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he wrote a third ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes.

The more I abused him the more tickets he wrote.

Personally, I didn't care. I came downtown on the bus...
