Living On The Cutting Edge

How to make it through life

We all want more out of life

We have so many different dreams that talk to us often

Life is a fast moving bullet

Sometimes I feel like a fugative from time

I race to get things done

But my accomplishments our soon dust in the wind

When I get down

I strip off life and go naked

Remembering I came in this world with nothing and I will leave someday the same way

I feel bare but realize I am still here

Now I can sit and wonder what really matters

I just want to be warm now since it is a little chilly

Other things that clouded my mind our a little clearer now

I still haven't reached to be covered yet

I want to feel what is to loose everything I have had and I took for granted so easily

When the time passes by now I don't rush

I think of how nice a pair of pants and shirt would be

It is easy to want and want and never to be pleased

It is harder to enjoy what you have and understand you have so much more than others

So live this day feeling a bit naked but more whole in some way

You have learned a lesson of warmth and happiness starts from with in

When you start that fire it will burn endlessly without much effort

You can never throw away what you do not have

You can never loose or break what you want but don't get

But you can experience the freedom of happiness that runs free

The joy of all material burdens lifted off your chest

This world can be a great place or a disaster waiting to happen

It is your choice

Only you will know if you make the right one

For me I just can't wait to have what I had yesterday

A few clothes and lots of prayers

For better health in mind and body

A little more understanding

Of what makes us human and wonderful  at  loving all life has to offer

If we have it or not

Just to be happy one more day

In a strange sort of way

I most of the time like to reflect on what I have and how can I share it with the world.Sometimes I feel people don't want help.I have looked all my life to build a team of people who care about others so much.They won't settle for less than trying their best!!!!Thanks for caring.
