I Found What I Love About The HubPages The Most

How To Make Your Numbers Roll

I first had visions of making lots of money

Then when the sugar plums stopped dancing in my head

I realized it is tougher than I thought

Nothing in this world is for free

Life is a constant trade

Like being on the stock market floor

To get one stock you have to trade another

You can buy and sell

You can win and loose

But it is time to choose

We have time in are day that is so special

We can spend it any way we see fit

But when its gone its gone

No getting time back again

So if you had only one day to live

How would you spend your day

Doing the things you love the most

I know where I want to be

Writing does it for me

When I feel a thought that comes deep inside my mind

Begging to be let out

I tell that thought I will give you a break and let you escape

You can experience life on the other side

Don't let me down or you will be back in the dungeon of my brain

Where I will see fit that you never see daylight again

You want a chance to prove yourself

You want the freedom others have

It comes with a price

Now tell the world what you want

Make it convincing enough so that they will understand

If the first time didn't work

 Say it again a different way

This is your page

To tell others how you feel

It is not about the money

It is so much deeper than that

It is about talking and sharing many unique ideas

One that others can benifit from

So yes when I turn on the computer and check my statistics

I want to see my biggest joy come to life

Let the numbers roll and get the word out

I might not have the best articles or stories on the Hub Pages

But I have Inspiration and Spunk and for me thats a slam dunk

Hi DREAM ON,

A great poem and thanks for sharing.

You are so right this is what HP is all about and that is what I love about this caring community.

It is a place to give, receive, share and grow as individuals and then of course as writers also.

Thank you so much for sharing your very clever and so right poem.

I push all the buttons on this one.

Take care,

Eiddwen.

Hello my adorable Dream On a very good friend, you are so right, this is the time, right here and right now. I am slowly discovering there are many secrets on hubpages, and some know it, others share it, but it's darn hard to figure it all out. You're right about it's deeper then that, it has become my addiction...I might need to go to one of those cozy rehab places to get healed from hubpages disease...love this hub rate up love & peace darski

I totally agree. Hubpages has inspired me to write and that's worth the time spent.

Eiddwen I am learning so much but I am having great difficulty puttting it into words.I spend my time gathering my thoughts,concentrating and focusing on many different subjects that I love so much. I am having lots of fun enjoying what I do.I am not graded except by helpful comments and hints by my peers.In a world that is very much material and poccessions our ninety percent of peoples lives.I can't measure the knowledge that I have learned.As my knowledge and thoughts expand I know I am a smarter man.When I share my hidden and sometimes loneliest thoughts.I find friends who I never knew I had.Who share in my struggles in life and lift my spirits to a new level.I am so grateful.I am improving my English constantly. When I read someones hub and their ideas open up my thoughts.I am watching less t.v. and I don't want my mind to drift into a vegetative state.I am constantly thinking of what they said and how can I learn from them and make my hubs better.I sometimes leave a comment but like a teacher that you had in school how do you thank them when they taught you so much.You are on with your life and they might never know unless you find a way to tell them so.Each day passes and new thoughts come to light.Thoughts of beauty and much new insight.I get excited for no reason that I can describe.I feel pride that I never want to hide.Darlene Sabella Yes I do find the HubPages creeping into my mind at all hours of the day.I sometimes have to stop saying that would make a good hub.As I take a closer look are my thoughts really that bad.I want to share a thought that came into my mind that can make others so happy.I spend my time improving life and sharing and caring about others.I know the feelings I feel are good.I don't want to criticize and complain as much.I just want to improve what I know is wrong and move on.But in a world where people go out of their way to hurt and humiliate.Where some people get paid to be down right evil.The joys I find and my only motives are pure and innocent.My views can and will be shared by many others.So they can take it or leave it.Maybe they too will spend more time helping than hurting.Only time will tell.Diana Lee I compare my time sometimes hours on the HubPages to other ways people spend their time in other places.Lets say computer games....they had fun but what did they learn ?Watching t.v. had a lot of laughs.But what did they learn?On FaceBook socializing and chatting to benefit what from one another.I agree it is fun to be connected in this busy world of ours.But what personal achievements have we reached and strived for.Is this just another way to waste our precious time and we don't know it?Talking or texting on the cell phone about nothing.What did we learn?I think nothing.Just a few thoughts that I have been thinking.I would love to have more discussions on it.Thanks to everyone who spent their precious time and left me some wonderful advice and comments so that I can make my hubs better:>)

Sminut13 I use to write all my thoughts on a word processor and my wife would go on the computer and tell me to use the computer too. I said why?I didn't know any sights at that time.I just know I liked to write and share my thoughts.Everything I read was about having a web site and I didn't know enough.Until one day my word processor broke and I was forced into the computer age.I have done so many more quality writings here and I plan to write many more.Life is a learning process we don't always see until after the fact.Leni Sands I am finding out just to enjoy what we are doing now and do what you can and the leave the rest for others to do.If I try to catch up on my past,I feel like someone put my treadmill on super fast and I just get out of breath and then I just want to quit.So that didn't work.Take one day at a time and laugh a little more.Life has a crazy way of working itself out.Let things happen.Become your own reporter and report the news but don't let it give you the blues.Your only a spectator and not an active participant.So just report the news.Thanks so much for reading and sharing.

Sminut13 It took me the longest time to get into the computer age.Before that I was on an Smith Corona electric typewriter.I struggled making the big jump from my portable manual one.I always resisted change.I felt if something worked don't change it.I would still be writing my writings in pencil if I had my way.I thought seeing them in marker was cool.Until one day they got wet and the whole writing smudged and you couldn't read a word.Lesson learned.So then I advanced to black then a blue pen.Thank you so much for triggering so many memories.
