Make Time For This,,,Make Time For That...That Is Where I Am At

What A Crazy Juggling Act

It only gets more confusing from here

Each day goes by quicker and my thoughts seem to be on the freeway

Going a mile a minute

Beep, beep I see you have joined the fun

Racing like we are pros changing lanes and foes

Each trying to gain position and see the world in a better view

Sometimes I remember years ago when I was in the very back pulling up the ass end

I see everyone else pass me one by one

I didn't seem to mind I guess because I knew there was nothing I could do

So then it happened but not overnight

I became a little better and some how, some way, the people in the front started to disappear

I oftened wondered whatever happened to them ?

But I couldn't think about it for long because here I was going strong

Moving up front and telling myself don't look back

I might jinx myself and then I will fall back and go way back to the end again

LIke I was sent home because I was sick and worse than that

I had to call my mother to pick me up

It doesn't get any more embarressing than that

Everyone knew and all I could do is quietly cry to myself

Hoping that everyone would forget as I blank out my mind and every thought I new

That would bring me back to that time and place

In the back of my mind I secretly new what was happening

The only way I could move up the ranks was if the best of the best had been removed from the list

That had been put on leave or I like to think of it as put on a new list

Like they moved in a elite category

More like the untalked about ghost list

So with a blessing I knew only to well

Thank God for giving me a chance to see the world in a different light

Someday it would be my turn to move on and once again I didn't have a choice

So how is it after all these years I am exactly where I started

Looking for a way to make the best of every day

Living for the moment and first on my list

Pray,pray and pray

So no matter where you are in life

Don't hesitate to think I don't see you and know where you have been

I was there before and shared the same feelings you think are new only to you

We each have our day in the sun

Just be careful not to get a sunburn because it will take awhile to heal

You will ache

You will peel

Then one day you will forget and wonder was it really real

If you work in an office I would send you a memo

If you are a cook I would add just the right seasoning to give it just the right flavor

A pinch of life and everything nice

If you were a mechanic I would hand you the tool you were looking for that was just out of reach

For me I write and I just add words that you know

I just jumble them up so they make no sense

Then when you descramble them until you get a little hint

Of what I know

I love all there is and love more the things that haven't even happened yet

Each day I type and see until one day everything becomes one big blur

Luckily someone invented glasses and now I am thankful for people who spent their entire lives doing something I didn't

Dedicated to one goal to help others the best they knew

Selfishless and giving

Considerate and gifted

Imaginative and well before their time

I can never say enough

Because now I can see the words that were invisible just a moment ago

Life doesn't get any better than that

Rest assure I am getting old and now it is time for my daily nap

What a crazy juggling act we have... that's the truth.. there is so much in one day that has to be done and then we don't think we can get it done.. but we did and by the time you get to bed you are so exhausted..so funny if it wasn't so sad, but that's life... Love your poem... I voted up and awesome...

This is pretty cute (and true). I won't say how old I am, but I have to have a little nap each day. I explain that the great minds all took "power naps".
