I 'll Be Darn

For Those Who Remember

When today has no bearing on yesterday

It seems that the past is over and nobody cares but me

When being treated unfair is accepted

Bury the hatchet and move on

Easy to say it is not your back that holds it firm

Mistakes were made and peope suffer

There will never be a right or justice served

Some things our bigger than us

We have to forget and remember not to fuss

When are heart aches and our mind repeats the day over and over again

Like a bug itch that won't go away

A cut that you pick that scab and won't let it heal

I know better but it drove me crazy

I couldn't take it anymore

I had enough

Why can't I skip over this aggrivating part of my life

Move on to a better time

Let go of all the emotional burden

Years of frustration bottled up

Our minds can play that faithful day

Like Gilligan's Island where we get shipwrecked and can't get off that island

No matter how hard we try

All we can do is laugh at our mistakes and then cry

We feel the pain and now it is time to let it pass by

Look around you and see what is real

Pinch your cheek as hard as you can

Ouch that smarts now why did I do that again

To bring me to the present and stop that old loop that retraces every detail

It was a long time ago

This might take awhile

PInching my cheek again

Hey cut that out

That is stupid

Well I have to understand so is repeating the past that is like pouring salt in every wound

Why can't you see it

Why do I do it

I have my flaws

I can't move on when I won't let go

So I will try every trick in the book

To shake the bad and find the good

What have I learned is so much more important

To endure and keep walking forward

It is not how we go but where we are going

I'm sorry what just happened here

I am willing to accept all that has happened and not get revenge

No the slate is wiped clean and we are free to go

Concentrate on learning new things and find a good emotion that triggers more great thoughts

It is time to let the wild bird go

I know it is cute and we had fun taking care of it

Let it fly away and be free it deserves that privelege

We have no right to keep it caged

The same way are old pain is locked up in a cell

Unlock the lock with the key

Open the door

Your free to go and don't come back no more

acaetnna I am so happy to see you.You make all my troubles disappear.Oh they came back but you made them shy away at least for the day.I am always trying to get a grip on my thoughts.I am trying to outnumber each bad thought 100 to 1.I am not there yet but I keep slugging like a little boy with a new bat. Swing and a miss but this is my favorite bat.I know it will work great I just need more practice. Mhatter99 I really want to have thousands of great ,super ,spectactular moments.Until that day comes I have to work through a couple of troubling thoughts that turn out positive.It takes time but what is my hurry anyway.As long as I have someone to talk to and listen.I hope I am a little bit of a help and not a burden.Thanx so much and have a an incredible day.
