Which Way Is Up

Keep Looking

On any given day you may find me looking with my eyes wide open

Searching for the littlest clue

A sign that may not be bright and bold and hanging on a pole

A light not neccessarily red,green or yellow

Not a one way or left turn only

I may seem confused as if I just entered a Do not enter

Then I may suddenly Stop dead in my tracks

As if I was going the Wrong way

I am told to go Slow

Then I see the sign Caution soft shoulder ahead

Where I turn around wanting to go home

A day where I should of stayed in bed

Slept the day away

Well you never know if you didn't give it a try

And find a better way to carry you through

To the end where we see our final destination

Home Sweet Home again

DREAM ON.. yeah you said it...sometimes we have to sit back and analyze a situation..up/down/behind and in front off/over/under..above and beyond...and then there are the days when one shoe is nailed to the ground...going in circles..

But you summed it up..at least we have a home to go to, and everything is fine...

enjoyed the hub as usual you outdid yourself...

So very true. There are days I just love being home and I don't want to go out and days when I'm just glad to get back. Well said.

that drive to work, can be the worst thing in the world but the drive home is always good. Especially if you have a spouse and a cat, what more cold anyone wish for, except a few friends on line............ oh and a few good books.

yeah i work for Headway.... unfortunately Ireland is really struggling money wise..... I was offered this job, last year, the pay was great, and i found the work suited me. The government have pulled the funding, so i have to wait now to see if they offer me any more. I have told them only to contact me in future if i can do 2 hours. My husband takes the afternoon of work to take me also at his cost, as i do not drive. These people respond. Most are young men that have had terrible accidents and have acquired head injuries. They keep requesting me back, which is great..... They respond so well to my classes.
