weird things

Some coffee in the morning
Some coffee in the morning

8/3/2011

Thoughts like friends, they come and go, leaving whenever they like.

they let themselves in, at their slightest whim and linger all day and night.

so I sit and I wait for a thought to create. with emotions I cannot show.

though it seems at this time,my friends have all died and my heart is feeling so low.

so I play in the park, alone in the dark,wishing someone would call.

Are they really all gone, it seems like so long, I feel like a brick in the wall

Days turn to weeks and weeks turn to months, While I'm slowly dying inside

Then all of a sudden, a light in the tunnell, I have feelings I'm still alive.

Though hopeless I feel, I still have a will, that wills me to keep trying.

I won't quit,stop or stray ,on my path I will stay, until a friend says hi.

Cause thoughts are like friends, I must say again ,they come and they go as they like.

Ah, haven't we all felt this way at one time or another? So true, we find the will inside and keep on going. Nicely penned! (and the photo was a great lure!!)

I don't know what position that is, but I sure couldn't do it, I thought it was weird that is why I put it on there.

Thanks for stopping by

To everything, turn, turn, turn, there is a season, turn, turn, turn, and a time for every purpose unto heaven. Your verse made me think of that line for some reason. Nice work! WB

Reminds me of how I go through life - I may be having a hard time, but I remember that the good times will come again, and they will go again, but their coming makes life worth it for me.
