The Battle I Always Win

A Hard lesson To Learn

 My soul burns holes deep under my skin

I am driven in a specific direction

I do not understand

I do not comprehend

I will not try to justify in the end

I just know it feels right

I search for answers every night

For questions no one asks

Why can't we live in peace?

Why don't we help each other every day?

We all strive for new goals and happiness

My day begins long before my eyes open

It starts with the first thought I think

Somewhere deep in nowhere land

I focus on love and life

I let each day unwind

I try hard to deliver a message

Life is risky and bold

You can not wait to you are old

Do what you can now

Try again later

Search from the heart 

Until your true affections  become known

I'm sorry I forgot to explain myself.How much time in a day do you post on the hub pages?How long does it take you to write a new hub?How many hours do you work in any given day?How do you manage to spend so much time with your family?How long have you been writing for the hub pages.How did you find out about the hub pages?Who are your favorite friends on the hub pages?I still don't understand why you left the hub pages?Have you been writing greeting cards ?How many questions can I ask you before you get tired and have to go to sleep?How much do I like asking you many questions and seeing your responses.Very much!!!!

i used to spend a lot more time than i do now on hub pages. I spend maybe average an hour a day, some days maybe more.

why do you not understand why i left the hub pages, you are joking?

i do not have a lot of friends on hub pages, one, but that one keeps changing identities. I never know when i am coming or going ....... i have other hubbers i read their work, and like their work, but i only really have one friend.

i have been making greeting cards, and watching t.v. craft shoes, to get me back in the mood, for crafts, i am getting there.

I will never tire of your questions.

I just discovered hub pages, when i was out of work and lonely...... i was addicted to it for a while.

I know you are very kind, but i am not really happy with my progress, i would like to write articles that sell. The only thing is i think i use the time on hubpages to socialise instead of improve.

Seasoning I think we all learn to TRY to find a balance in are life.Life is not easy.What makes it interesting is the journey we travel not always the destination.

I am to trusting.I believe that people are who they say they are.Their true colors always will shine in the end.That is their problem if they lie,cheat,steal, and cause trouble.I realize I have limited time in my life and those who I meet I trust like my beliefs in GOD.I have faith in people.I will not live my life looking over my shoulder.I say what I mean and I do what I believe in.This is my life.

Poet just happy to be alive.Each day you know is one day less to live.So if I can smile once more thats good enough for me.
