First Of All

What I Want

Is something far different than most

Being able to understand more than before

Not having more material things and less emotional baggage

Feeling in tune with my body and mind

Like a record player playing over and over without skipping

I constantly look around and see my world in a different light

Where everything takes place

The good,bad and the rest somewhere inbetween

My feelings change from day to day

In search of a world of constant play

Giving my mind the information it needs to develop properly

Watching my body exercise to stay fit

Enjoying both as an outsider

To watch over ever decision

An easier way see problems before they arise

Blessed are those who love

To love thyself first gives us a wonderful edge

We know what it feels like to be pleased and accepted

Now we can open our heart up to other people who also are in need

Life is not just what we see but what is hidden

Enjoying life is something personal and revealing

Only through time can it be fully understood

With every attempt I so openly pledge

People change all the time and understanding someone is different but that does not mean individuals must stop living or thinking for themselves. Hard times have to be seen through. Words have to be said to get all under control. Helping others with a problem can be a great way to get over all hard times.

Oh, yes, Dream On. You've got this right: ". . . Life is not just what we see but what is hidden . . . "

Perhaps what seems hidden is partly because folks just don't make the choice to look and see but, rather, prefer their own easy 'takes' on what is 'there', especially regarding other people. So much easier to over-look than to look and have to pause and then think about it, I guess.

Perhaps if we were more attuned to the unspoken language of love and of cries for help, - - all the 'hidden' things that may otherwise be overlooked and/or misinterpreted, - -we would actually SEE through their veils of either silence or misleading speaking, into the hearts of others. Perhaps if we gave people more credit for good motives or at least for good reasons for what they do or say, we'd find the view right into them and we'd find them good.

As you say, sharing our own things which move us, even those which sometimes may disturb us, is a way to cut through to truth, which is what matters.

A good hub, m'dear. Gets my votes!

Nellieanna I am still practicing and after four years I am finally getting some of the rust out in those gears of mine.Thank you for being a good friend.I know my writings aren't silver and shiny. They are sincere and down to earth. Where they can look up to the world and say some day I will be way up on top. For now I couldn't be happier having friends like you. Welcoming me with open arms for what I do.

I'd say you ARE way up on top! We don't write to compete or compare to others, but to express our own hearts and perspectives. It's a personal art (as all art should be) - and its uniqueness and authenticity are what make it be on top. If one is on top of one's own game, that is the ultimate, and you truly have improved yours, and it has remained authentic through each step you've taken. Hugs.
