Troubles Of The Mind

Lets Dissect Them LIke A Frog In Science Class

We all have been there

Sometimes too many times to keep counting

Some problems are real

Some are imaginary

Sometimes we can't tell the difference

They all feel real

They affect us and our health

We have to find a way to make them go away

It is never as easy as it looks

For me they creep up on me like underwear all bunched up

Very uncomfortable to say the least

It doesn't happen often but when it does its like an itch I can't scratch

In the middle of my back

What were you thinking

Socks that I put on for work that roll down under my feet

What a pain

My foot falling asleep and now here comes the pins and needles

I keep looking for the bright side

Sometimes the bright side turns into a bad sunburn

Don't touch me or I will scream

But in time it goes away

I forget I ever had it

Until I twist an ankle

Walk into my doorway that I didn;t see

How could I do that after all these years

Not thinking I guess

Getting scratched by my cat who only wanted more attention

I have to stop and think

How bad can it get ?

Laugh about these silly things and forget the rest

Life is too too darn short to be sad all the time

I rather have a smile today and even if it gets turned upside down

I will give it another try

When that cold makes me cough time and time again when I am trying to sleep

Here I go again thinking of the bad

When all I want is the good

A blister on my big toe from walking in my sandals too long

We have aches and pains

Some physical and some mental

I only covered a few physical ones for now

Because they are the ones I can deal with

The mental ones need more time

They are relationships that didn't work out

Friends who just don't give a damn

When my mother just doesn't see it my way

Bill collectors who are like vulchers and I am sitting prey

A good money making idea that went down the drain

A car that starts after the third or fourth try

I could go on and on

But I am here to help explain a better way

Not bringing you down to the land of gloom

I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth

I try hard to make life better than when I first started

I am in the right direction I think

Until I seen the sign dead end

Now I will have to turn around and begin once more

On my journey to make my life happier than before

Dim Flaxenwick I wish I could say everything I made up was a lie.But it is as true as the sky is blue.I have done many things in my life.Only some of what I remember.Boy I don't know what to do when old age sets in and I start forgetting things.But for now my stories are as crisp as the sheets my wife wanted me to wash and hang on the clothes line to dry.I think it was the crisp linen scent that I put in the dryer instead before my wife got home.Because I forgot to do them and they wouldn't be dry before we went to work.Ooops enough about me what about you.Hope your day is wonderful and exciting.Thanks for your comments and support.I will write until the internet takes me off.(bad humor and scaring people away and not just for Halloween.)

...I have always liked your poetic sense of style - it's deceptively simple but yet truly profound - well it kinda reminds me of 'me' - lol lol - and you know what they say - it takes one to know one!!!!
