Who Am I ?

Can You Find Me ?

I don't know why ?

I keep asking myself why?

I know what I want and I know what to do.

I just don't see how to get there

I thought it would be cool to chat.My mind goes non stop sometimes and I wonder if the hub pages don't want conversation on here.


poetlorraine 6 years ago

why do you think that

SOMETIMES i get a comment on top like moderate comments???I don't know what it means.Maybe There are things they don't allow.I don't want them to erase all the work I have worked s hard to make.

You are who you are. A human being grateful to life, God and to yourself! Keep on smiling, my friend! The best way to live happily is not to worry about things that do not make you grow inside...

Interesting existential poetry!

Thumbs up!

warm regards and blessings,

Al

Mystique1957 Thank you for the very inspiring words and sometime we can't see beyond our own limbs.Like a tree in time we learn to branch out and we all know they live for hundreds of years.I believe we just constantly live in everything we touch and feel.Have a wonderful day.

Great writing and it is a lifelong discovery (I think) of who we are and then who we are not. But all the things we are not doesn't change who we are in reality because we are so many other things. I think that was too heavy for my blonde brain!

Fabulous ! Made me laugh in parts. My dad always said "Just do your best, always your best. No-one can ask for anything more,." Take care

Dim Flaxenwick Thanks for the memories about your dad.My dad has been gone for about 18 years and I never thought I could picture one day without him.He use to say if your going to steal you better rob the biggest bank.Because if you steal a penny or anything your a crook and no different than the big bank robbers.He had many smart words I still hear them in my head.One was be proud of what you do and you can sleep good at night and look yourself in the mirror every day and know you did your best.I think my dad and your dad would of got along just fine.

Fellow Dreamer.

I AM concerned with the fact that every line you wrote in this hub is negative. i.e. I don't... I am not...

Let me ask you. Can you say "I am not cold" without imagining or considering the state of cold?

I am warm.

pjk_artist When writing this hub I found many things in life that we constantly see in the news that define who we are as people.I have never fit in with the same element of society that influence so many others.I try to read the newspaper often and get some good input from the news.It seems the news loves to highlight the bad in people.I wish it would just take are strongest points and are accomplishments and celebrate them to the world.People constantly find reasons why there life is upside down and has problems.I don't have any of the problems listed in my hub. I haven't found my ultimate success. I am closer than ever before.I keep striving for the gold.I try to help others at every turn.I am trying to understand why people don't offer to help others instead of hindering there progress and succeses.Could you explain to me why people love to talk about peoples misery and problems.

Please answer this important question.

Who are you? Who do you wan to be?

(OK 2 questions ;o)

DREAM ON 6 years ago Author

Pjk_artist I am a dreamer.I want to be an inventor of many things.Lack of knowledge,connections with the right people and funding for my ideas they lie dormant....I never stop trying to make them come true.The people I have met in my life are not interested in working on something now that can bring future successes.They want something for nothing.I just want to help others with ideas and thru inventions make life easier for everyone.Are you interested in chalanges that never stop.The sky is the limit and are imagination is the key to all things.

Maybe you are a wonderful cat?

We are not what we do, what we think, how we look....

We are..... I do not know, just a person? Maybe is too little??

Your Hub first made me smile, then made me think!

Fucsia You made me think.Before I thought we are all just ideas and love rolled together in a person and we have our whole life to find out what they are and how to get it and share it with the world.So we can all live a wonderful life.Maybe I am just a cat and my life is just to play and have fun.Thanks so much.
