Hold Your Head High

Other People Don't See What You See

The word No looks me in the eyes face to face

Could I be wrong again or does my hearing need to be checked ?

Certain things I will not let happen even though everything points in that direction

Today was a very disappointing day

High hopes were dashed and later turned to small cinders that were later burned again

I come from a long history of falling short of my greatest expectations

It has become more the norm not just a sudden setback

Almost like a ship slowly sinking taking in more water than it can handle

It is an ongoing reality that I constantly change little by little

First by words then by actions then by results

I know first hand what it feels to be nocked down and later pinned

Then I think of my dreams which I always seem to do

All by myself without anyones help

Why did the day turn out like it did ?

It started out with great promise and unlimited potential

Surprise !

While I cover your nice warm fire with a big bucket of water

I seen the splash while sitting in the hot seat which instantly turned my whole body dripping wet

Once a delightful fire suddenly turned into smoldering wet wood still smoking

Slowly choking my lungs and soon even air is more precious than before

After listening to the most ridiculous reasons why you are not interested

In an idea that can mutually benefit both of us

I ask the same question again and again

Why am I compelled to help you ?

You clearly said I don't seem to understand what the goal is ?

Finding my efforts nice

Entertaining but with little overall value

This is where we differ

The vision can be so much more rewarding

The prize slightly out of reach

Rethinking every effort and reevaluating the situation

After coming up with other reasons why you might change your mind

Why not think different than everyone else ?

Still not interested

It is time to move on

Find what life has to offer and how to find a bigger catch

We all make choices each day good and bad

Some are brilliant some are short sighted

We owe it to ourselves to develop each one or at least learn from our mistakes

Bringing our dreams into focus so that others can witness something really special

To concentrate all energy to propel an idea from fruition to being practical

Going beyond when others have turned around and gone home

The magic of sleep will replentish the soul

Where my dreams will fly and there are no blunders

Another day will bring on new excitement and promise

To expand the horizon and the wonderful future

Princess Prisca Life can be sparkles of joy.First there seems to be a run in the stockings.I rip in the pants where it can be seen the most.A dent in the car and a scratch on your sunglasses that wasn't there before.Aggravating and frustrating at the same time.You would think they are all friends and they came out to hang out and party at your house.Well I am here to kick them out and make sure they don't come back.It is time to make changes and show people you mean business.Thank you for understanding lifes struggles and it is not easy to find a solution to a problem that other people don't see.One day at a time.

Thanks...i'll do just that.Great inspiration.I will also let somethings go by,consider somethings,say yes to somethings,and no to others. That is the way of life,and a way to balance it out. Great hub.

You are becoming more like a wise guru who we should all come to to put things in perspective.

I just love the way you see life.

Dim Flaxenwick I am just a working progress.Trying to make sense of each struggle I see and trying to make the best of my world.I am very glad I can help others but most of the time I can't find the solution myself.So I don't know how wise that is?(haha)A practicing guru is pretty cool.I heard the apprenticeship is over after only 25 little years.Then a become a professional guru.I am so excited it use to be 30 years and they are giving a special for new members for (Valentines Day).I am so lucky I joined when I did.Have a beautiful night and thanx for keeping me in your thoughts.You are in my prayers often.

Eiddwen I have reached a yield and I have slowed down.I have reached a stop sign and now I have had to stop.I have started up again and this time I see a dead end.Turning around and going back from the way I came is a start of making my life better.Time to look for a different way I have not seen before.Thanx for holding the detour sign and now I have hi and by as I drive on with new excitement.
