I Will Be Darn

I Thought Life Was Good And Kind

How wrong was I

To think that life could be just wonderful

It can be happy and full of dreams and endless loves

When we pick up the paper and see the worst tradegy

Where innocent people get hurt

Is there no justice

I like to think life always turns out great

I don't have one pair of rose colored glasses I bought the whole lot

I planned on giving them away and showing the world see life is phenomenal

Instead i have boxes and boxes stacked to the ceiling in every room

Love is suppose to last for ever for better or worse

Tell that to my wife who every day I hear her curse

She says another pipe dream that went both down the drain and up in smoke

I say not true people will come around they just aren't ready

Then I hear about a close friend who had a brush with death

I was shocked and hurt that another person I cared about might not be here

So I hold back the tears and think it can't be true

Why is it when life just becomes so much fun

A twist of fate makes us hate

Well my friend pulled through and she is on the road to recovery

KJ Force a force to be reckoned with

Slow but sure she is bouncing back

She is someone really special and has lived a very long time

Did I say very long time

She will kick my butt when she finds out I called her old

It is one a** wh****** I don't mind

She knows alot more about life and death than I ever will

I try to find the good in everyone

Then when I can't find it I think there must be something wrong

With me ofcourse

People are not bad they just do bad things

Times aren't bad we just have to appreciate the good times more

Work doesn't s*** we just have to be a better employee

When our mom dies that is no time to curse and complain

Life is not mean and miserable as others would want you to believe

We are just making room in the world for babies and somebody has to go

When it rains out and the things on the deck get all wet

It was not your fault I didn't bring them in

I just wasn't thinking or just being stupid

If I look back when I was a child

My poor grades wasn't what I wanted to believe

The teachers were out of touch with reality and a little bit senile

Besides the fact they each had it in for me

The work wasn't too hard even after I studied all night and couldn't get it right

Lets face it all the above can't be true

I was wrong then and I am wrong again

Well even if the grapes I bought look great and are all sour

My wife has a cold and keeps me up all night coughing

My work needs the money and doesn't believe in raises

The president I picked didn't win

The world is going to come to an end

This Friday would you believe

The truth is...

This world will continue on long after I am gone

Many would call my writings ramblings,rants or raves

I call it a thought process I CLEARLY express

I took the time to work all these thoughts over in my mind again and again

I found words that came from my vocabulary from all my years of bad grades

You can follow my I's as I lead you on my journey

Where I learn to write a whole lot better

Well this is one writing I will write

That has a sad overtone know doubt

I have made many writings and I find a way to pull myself out of the gutter where I had been dragged and mugged

Justifying everything with reason

They needed the money more than me

Don't you see

Not rational I know

It's a world of equal distribution

A kind of give and take

I thought we were suppose to give and then next time give more

That's what the bad people in the world want us to believe

As they laugh and count their money

Well I have a roof over my head and shoes on my feet

A warm cooked meal from my wife all the time

A strong love that binds

A job where I go and earn some money

The HubPages where I can share one of my million dreams

A family that has it's quirks

Sometimes crazy sometimes down right insane

This is the world that I know

Until another one comes along

I have to take my lumps and say pass the sugar

Add a little white vinegar

My mom swore that was the cure

My dad would say the world has gone to hell in a hand basket

I don't know what that meant years ago or even now

My wifes cold is gone and she sounds better

The rain has stopped and the sun is trying to come out

I am off from work and life is something i find unbelievable

I just want someone to believe it is readable

your stream of thought is sometimes hard to follow but i was right with you on this one .. when the world becomes insane, we must escape from it or else go to the looney bin with all the others trying to rationlize the craziness. your words are profound with reasonable sanity .. the sun does come out and shine it will..! the night will come and the moon is made of green cheese.

our lives are what we make it. When we understand that we can not change the world.. only the life that we live and the imediate people around us is what we influence then slowly but surely the sanity is realized.

I am blessed with good people around me.They guide me in a direction I did not see.They read and listen and hear my words.They over look my imperfections and give good advice and corrective criticism when needed.Confusing as life may be if we give it time and some patience certain problems can show some light.Another day of praying and beauty is still found to inspire some and drive others to fascinating progress and happiness.I appreciate your comment and your insight.Thanx so much for taking the time to read and share.

DREAM ON..Thank you for the personal write and thoughts of concern..deeply appreciated from a very good friend..Life is funny, you must admit..we come into this world naked and sometimes spend the rest of our life as such..as we are an open book to some. We give and they take, we go up they push us down, we strive to be happy..they hurt and make sad..IT IS US that must change..eliminate the negative..meditate and go to a higher consciousness..be happy with what you have and remember these words " I cried because I had no shoes..until I saw a man who had no feet "..told to me by my " Nann " when I was VERY young..By the way I am NOT OLD..I'm Seasoned...hehe..enjoy the rest of the year !!

I will have you know I have had those wrinkles in my eyes for years.I guess they call them crows feet.I am beginning to feel aches and pains I never felt before.I still have my hair but if I follow my older brothers footsteps it won't be long now.I like to poke fun at age because we all feel it sooner or later.You are a great spirit and every time I read your comments you have lots of pep in your step.You are a pleasure to know as well as a good sport.My mother swore Oil Of Olay is the secret to beautiful skin.In her 80's she could pass for someone in her late 60's.I think I will try it.What do I have to lose.Well we meet again and share some thoughts but more importantly learn that this huge world is smaller than we think.Great wishes and love coming your way.

Gypsy Rose Lee Life can bring us down and make us sad and cry.Then again we can find the greatest people in the world who will never be forgotten.Relive those memories with everyone we meet.So they can enjoy the same love that we have found that connects the whole world together.That is what life is about.Thanx for the reminder.Have a very special day.
