I Can't Possibly Do Any More

I have tried my hardest and I have nothing left

I keep ending up in the same place

I am pushed against the wall and see no way out

I try every option and they all end up to being dead ends

I keep focussed on one result

Positive with all my ambition

I feel like I am in war and out of ammunition

Think again where can I possibly go

How can I make this day better than yesterday

I close my eyes and start fresh

Clean the slate of all my past

I have no hang ups or snags in my way

I am free to do anything I please

I concentrate and think of my friends

I bring all my love and kindness in

I hold onto the most happiest thoughts I can conceivably think

My situation has not changed but my attitude is better

I will find a way and I tell myself over and over again

I think of all the struggles I have had in the past where I came out in the end

I work on a solution because that is the only way I can succeed

I turn to nature and what a wonderful wonder that surprises me

When the worst of snow storms hit

When the rain comes down so hard and the wind howls with only distruction in its path

I sit distraught and depressed with no hope in sight

Then there is a new day

The sun comes out

My tears from yesterday have dried up and are gone

Enormous amounts of snow begins to melt

The trees who have lost their branches still stand tall and some how bear it all

Birds come out from hiding and they forget what has happened

In search of food and new life

Plants who survive the worst blight

I to can have hope

I will rise above this day

I will seek a new path even if its through the barren desert

Because I know life must go on

I have to be strong

I am one with nature and life has to exsist

So failing is not a choice

Only a waist of time

So I shall burn all my bad thoughts at the stake

Make it charcoal and ash

Because I am here and I am going to last

Another awe inpiring hub my friend. Yes, tomorrow is another day, the sun comes out, however I don't come out, I stay in, away from all to see. I love your hubs, don't ever stop writing, you are so gifted.

Dim Flexenwick I wish I could make your troubles go away.I think that would not solve all your problems.I think in time you will find a better solution than me.You will learn from trial and error.It may not be easy. It will be frustrating looking for answers.You can pass your knowledge to friends or me so I can find an easier way without going through the same aggrivation.Then we can move on to the next problem.It sounds like so much fun.Think positive. I am the birdy in the window.Trying to hum your favorite tune..Just listen.

Thanks for answering me, Dream On. When I'm not sure of the answer to a problem that's when i get really frustrated. Once I can see what I should do, I don't mind pulling out all the stops and get going to fix it.

I had some news today that helps a bit. Thank you for your kind words. Dim

Dim Flaxenwick I have been dealing with some financial issues.I think I don't have the answer yet.I just keep searching for new choices and then I am waiting for my life to change.Sometimes it is more like a pop up.It looks so good then you understand it wasn't.I keep throwing my lasso aventually you have to catch something besides flies.Each time I come to the hub pages my troubles seem to disappear for a little while anyway,

You make my thoughts in life clearer and easier to understand.It is so nice to have true blue friends who hang around just to hang around and enjoy the simple pleasures I enjoy (like my writings) even when they are just ordinary and plain.Thanks for dropping in when I least expect it.

Very inspirational hub Sometimes when I think I can do no more (as in today when I had to fix a water pipe I broke while building a deck and wanted to finish another project) I have to picture the end result and how good it makes me feel which seems to give me the strength to do a little more. Up and awesome

Charlu My talent lies in breaking things.I have endless projects for you.So you can get plenty of practice.I often picture the end result but some how the real end result is a plumber giving me a bill and saying if you called me first it would of been a lot cheaper have a nice day.Thanx for reading and how did the deck come out?

The deck came out great It is not very big but perfect for what I need in the back near the horses. The pipe was easy to fix because the pvc wasn't buried in the ground which is why it broke to begin with. Have an incredible day and thanks again for a great hub

Charlu I love pictures you will have to do a hub on Enjoying The View On My New Deck.I will be the first to read it.There is a silent thrill of pushing to the limit and getting things done.The only problem is I am a list person I make lists to do everything.So when one list is finished another begins.Thanks for sharing.
