To Fix Life With The MEstakes We Have Made

One Life One Shot

I have been going about life all wrong

Every time there was a problem

I tried to correct it

In my mind I really thought I could get a hold on it and adjust it

Make a few little corrections here and tweak there

Before you know it not one problem solved but a new problem developed

Then back to the drawing board I go

Trying to correct not one problem but two problems at hand

I give it more thought and with a solution in place

After doing what I thought was neccessary to correct not one but two problems

I take a step back to gaze and sure enough I was amazed

What did I see ?

Now three problems, Can you believe it three!!

I take a deep breath and scratch my head in deep thought

This could take awhile

What I thought was an easy fix

Soon revealed to me like a magician with a few tricks to baffle my brain and I can trust noone

I begin again throwing frustration to the curb

I will say this very loud so everyone can hear it

Bring on all the challanges and the problems that come

I see a bus stop in front of me

The door opens and each new problem leaves their seat and a full bus of problems come out single file one by one

Be careful what you wish for because you might just get it

Then what would you do ?

Pull up a seat next to me and yell oh cock a doodle do

We have been up all night and now the morning rises

No solution in place or answers that we can appreciate

Only more questions and more thoughts that lead us to a new direction

If I was a problem where would I go

To a land where all problems can be solved

I never said it was going to be easy

When we get done we will have so much celebrating to do

Our minds take all the credit

Our bodies take the physical toll

In the end I finally fixed my first problem

But it is the other problems that hinder me

Wait just one dog gone minute

I will take you on one at a time

Then we can all have fun if we can just make these silly problems rhyme

I love this! I had fun while reading it just because it is so witty and it plays on matters that we all face on a daily basis. I truly enjoyed this and the way you play with irony and true cleverness...Well done...Awesome.

You are brilliant and l quite agree about one problem at a time.

My husband always asked the children. ´How do you eat an elephant?´

Now he´s doing the same with our grandchildren...... Óne piece at a time.´.........Don´t think of it as a whole elephant. Just one piece at a time.
