The Ability To Change Our Mind

What A Wonderful Thing

We start out each day on our own secret journey

Only we know where we are going

If we look at all the people in the world

Each busy trying hard to accomplish their own personal goals

Many succeed but it takes time

Other people give up and find other interests to occupy their time

Those who continue keep going through all their struggles and heartaches

They have a vision

No matter what happens they will keep trying

Time has a way of slipping away

The years add up and we have made many choices good and bad

Those who are smart learn from their mistakes

They learn to better themselves

Finding out through their many experiences

Helping people along the way is the only way to go

When all is said and done

We gave it one heck of a run

When it comes our time to leave this world

We would have left the people we have known

A little bit better than when we once came

Yes, as long as we keep persevering and know we've done our best, we can be content.

(One little thing - 'we would have' not 'would of' - we say 'would've' and the 've' sounds like 'of'. I hope you don't mind me pointing that out; it's the grammarian in me that won't go away!)

Your ideas flow and I always like the form of your poetry.

annart I know many of my dreams have crashed and burned. I believe they lead me into a better place only to dream a different dream. I want to give you one big hug. I love the way you explain my words and show me how to correct my mistakes. I write as my mind sees life unfold always leaving room for improvement. It is the nicest feeling to have someone read one of my writings. That I wrote from my spirit and did all I could by keeping my creative juices flowing. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment. Have a day filled with endless wonder.

Always good to be able to change one's mind however there have been times in my life when I've gotten into a bit of trouble because I've changed my mind.
