This Could Only Happen To Me

You Got To Be Kidding

I woke up my hair is a mess

My eyes are tired

I am sleepy

There are so many things I have to do

It's not funny

I have to go to work later

My head is spinning

What do I do ?

Crawl back in bed and hide

That won't solve any problems

I will get a nice hot shower

That makes me feel great

Watch how quickly I can't get dressed

I am hungry

Then I should eat

I have a list of chores a mile long

I would love to go to the gym

No time it will have to wait

Maybe I could squeeze in a quick ride on my bike

I can't my front tire has a flat

The weather is cool

Even though later it is suppose to get hot

I started reading a good book

I haven't picked it up in over a week

I have been busy

Doing what ?

I don't know ?

I love to write

Then you have been writing when you could be doing other things

Writing takes time

Any writer knows

Writing comes in many stages

You have a thought

Then you have another

Wouldn't it be grand

As I sit down to type

This would be awesome

How about this line

No I like this line better

I just remembered what it was like

As my words started to flow

The time seemed to speed up also

People spend all day watching t.v.

That's not me

As you toss words around in your head

Like a basketball player shooting for a basket

Picking the right ones to prove your point

Out of no where

I got this sniffle

I go to pat my cat

She pushes me away with her paw

I have to water the grass and our garden

I went to do it yesterday

It didn't happen

I have to get lunch together

Vacume the rugs

Wash a few dishes in the sink

When all I really want to do is type

I need a maid

Well that's not gonna happen

I will juggle everything I do

Trying to find a way to make it all work

Win,lose or draw

My jaw drops in awe

I will do a little of everything

When the day is over we will see

If I end up happy or cursing under my breath

Scratching my head

I could of done so much more

I found the time to write this instead

I know the feeling! I love the way your poems throw out the thoughts as they happen, yet they have a rhythm that always suits the subject.

There are always other things to do, but don't ever give up what you do best!

This poem has been my life lately and I have finally found my groove again, I hope. Thank you for a great read. Jamie

annart Our lives our filled with an endless amount of choices. I can eliminate half from the start. They are things that could cause harm or could get me in trouble. Then twenty five percent require money or time that I don't have. So they go on my wish list. I will constantly recheck that list and do one or two occasionally. Now the last 25% gets a little more difficult. I love to work and I could easily throw myself into working more. That would only postpone the few things I really want to do. So I can cut my list down to the top one hundred. This is where it gets really tricky. I break down to ten groups of ten. I usually pick one from each category for starters. If I feel really creative I will do two or three from one group. Now keep in mind I am always adding new groups and rarely I move things to one group to the next. You might ask what are these last ten groups. I was hoping to build up the suspense and wait until you can't wait any more. Well you waited long enough. I believe we our here to help others less fortunate than ourselves so the first group is about helping others. The second group is about being happy. What sparks my fire. What do I dream about. How can I feel the happiest I have ever been. Then the third group is about my future. Where am I heading for the next one hundred years. I hate to limit myself just in case science develops a way to increase our life span to 140. The 4th group is about reading everything that peeks my curiosity. My fifth group is writing about the world I live in.That could have ten sub groups alone. Halfway there. 6th group is looking into my past to see what I have done and where have I been. The 7th group is what I could of done differently and why? My eighth group is writing about people who have changed my life. The nineth is about dreaming the impossible what if? My final group is thanking God for my life and all this would not be possible without his help.You might ask yourself why isn't God first. God is first. Everything I do is through God so you could say I start subconsciously through God and end consciously on paper. Thank you for your time and patience. I try to keep my answers brief. Today I got so into my thoughts I couldn't stop. Make today a wonderful day.

jhamann Life is always taking us on a roller coaster ride. Sometimes we just have to hang on. It's real bumpy ahead. The times I love the best is the swoop down where we can't catch our breath.Thank you for reading and sharing. Have a super day.

annart I have no shortage of ideas. I do have to compromise and go with the flow. I can't get upset if I don't accomplish all I want because I think my standards are so high few could follow the routine. I find joy in the silliest things. So I continue to find new ways to be happy. Thank you for reading and commenting. I could spend months just reading people's hubs. Then I would stop writing.I am always searching for a happy medium. Practice makes perfect.

Oh, yes. My brain is busy most of the day. I love it when at night I can finally drift off to sleep but what sometimes happens is that I have been sleeping only for a couple of hours and something wakes me up. Suddenly my brain kicks in and I cannot get back to sleep.

Gypsy Rose Lee My brain is like a little wind up toy. I go and go and look like I will never stop. Then all of a sudden I shut down. Only to be wound up again and start eagerly I go in one direction then another. Thank you for reading and sharing. I love the things that you do. I have been there and you make me laugh.i try to think of my brain as a whole separate person so my body can catch some sleep while my brain thinks of the next latest, greatest amazing thought.

"Everything I do is through God." Thank you for writing that in your comments. This hub reminds me a Mexican jumping bean...it is our minds that do that! Mine too, I could SO truly relate to all you logged. What you shared in this hub is me, just a different list! The two things I love to do more than anything is read and write. And for my recreation I go to movie matinees often to unthink and jump into the minds of the characters in the movie. A great distraction. I love how you share your thoughts and your hearts on your hubs. God bless always, Sparklea, voted up and awesome

Sparklea I think I lose half my followers in the first five lines. Those who read to the end of my poems have a stomach as tough as nails. I am really surprised when they read another one of my stories/ poems I call stoems. I have to admit sometimes I cringe on my own stories and grit my teeth.through it all I hope I become better through the support of my family of hubbers. I am proud to call my friends. Thank you for sharing your day. You make my day look like a walk in the park.
