The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – A Special Letter

I’ve been doing some Spring cleaning lately; while going through some old boxes, I came across a very special letter from my Uncle which was sent to me 16 years ago.  My Uncle  has since passed away.

He loved writing poetry and short stories; he sent this letter to me in hopes I could possibly turn his poem into a song.  I had written a couple of songs during this time;  I suppose I was just trying to find my creative edge, he encouraged me and I was grateful.

Keeping in mind, my Uncle comes from an older generation who had the privilege of witnessing all sorts of changes this World has gone through.  Once he retired, he chose to live a very quiet life, so when he wrote this letter to me, his references are from a very different time.

I’d like to share with you his poem; I wasn’t able to turn this poem into a song while he was here with us, but perhaps I can dedicate this post to him and honor his “writing” and “creativity” using The Good Vibes Only Roadshow platform.  There is a message in his writing.

Funny Paper World

It’s a Funny Paper World

The one that we live in,

It’s a Funny Paper World

A World so full of sin

Spaceships in the air

Satellites in Outer Space

Our leaders are pulling hair

God help the Human Race

Atari games for our children

and porno shows at night

Makes a person sort of wonder

Are we wrong or are we right

It’s a Funny Paper World

The one that we live in,

It’s a Funny Paper World

A World so full of sin

 

We lost all sense of morals

We traveled fast to space

In this funny paper World

God help the human race

 

The message:  I took the time to read his poem/song, and I can’t help but think of how, at his age, his generation, we shared one major thing in common – he was wanting a different World to live in.

It just goes to show you, we all want the same thing in our lives – Peace, Happiness, Joy, Respect, and much more!

Times have changed, but yet times have remained the same in certain areas.

With Good Vibes Only I Wish You Peace 😊
