Stuck In The Middle With You

How Long Can Long Last

When I have been in a place I rather not go

I find you questioning my every word so

You find it fine

I find it unkind

We both have to work and get things done

You ruffle my feathers

I look the other way

You attack me like an indian and I am caught off guard

I will fight for what is mine

There has to be a better way

You come across loud and aggressive by nature

I am more calm and passive

For I do not wish to do battle

You find it amusing and fun

Each day for you is just another day that has little meaning or rhyme or reason

I try to think of why you test my patience so

I look at life as a journey where my passions go

Finding peace where nature resides

Seeing beauty where majestic mountians hide

Our days are numbered as we coexsist

I look for honesty and peace

You have nothing but revenge or tricks to decieve

Each of us will go toe to toe

Wouldn't it be crazy to be friends with the enemy

To try to understand that they are not entirely wrong

They just have a difference of opinion and have a different agenda to follow

Why not chose understanding over conflict

I am scared I will be chewed up inside

Then I realize I can not hide

So I take a stand and hold my ground

Wondering what is this that I really found

Life is to be enjoyed and understood

Not a fight on the school ground like two boys from the hood

So I relax and let go of my tensions and my misconceptions

For fear has no place with me

Now I can walk and listen to the wind that sings

You can fight each day with everyone who crosses your path

I will just move on to greener pastures where the cows lay

You frolic in the dead sea and look for more trouble

I go in peace and have no bone to pick

You become bored and look for another animal for prey

I know it took awhile but the good book said it best

When everything you know doesn't make sense

Stop and pray

For understanding and guidance

Soon you will have found more answers than questions

A wonderful place to be

Relaxing in the sun once again bringing on all the energy life has since it has begun

Princess Prisca I always seem meet someone at work or in my family that doesn't agree with me no matter how hard I try.I have learned to move on and let all my troubles go.They are not worth my time or energy.I refocus on what makes me happy and wonderful every day.Thanx for taking the time for such a wonderful comment.

Princess Prisca There are people who like conflict and trouble.It is like they live for it.If you stay around these people long enough they have a way of bringing you down.You are better off finding people that going to improve your life in some way.So each person can help each other.You both can learn and get more accomplished.I hoped I helped to explain if not let me know.Once again enjoy your day.

Oh how true , the words you penned here. Also how right you are. Life is too short and too full of unavoidable problems. Why cause more? I love your outlook on life. I know I´ve said it before, but it´s true. The optimism oozes from you,

Thank you.
