Funny Life Poems

Funny Life Poems

There may be two people who have been dealt the same cards in life. Two individuals with all the same life circumstances. One is miserable, stressed out, and looks twenty years older than he is. The other is the happiest guy you could ever meet and looks twenty years younger than he is. How can this be? The answer is that it is not our life circumstances that make life difficult rather it is the attitude that we view our lives with. Those who are capable of seeing the humor in life and take life lightly will be able to do the best with the circumstances they have been given.

  8. 6. Signs That You Are Old

  11. 9. The Workout

    I need to lose weight, just a pound or twenty.

  14. 12. The Golf Tragic

    My husband plays golf, or at least he does try.
    After many a round he will wonder just why.

    That can be euphoric or lead to depression.

    I'm not impressed with getting older.
