I Am Tied Up In Knotts But Somehow Someway I Will Break Loose

I Have Time On My Side

I look around me and what do I see?

An unhappy world where people yell and scream

My only solution to the problem at hand

Is to  keep on dreaming  happy thoughts

The next day all those good thoughts are erased by a man with a gun who does harm to anyone he sees

I close my eyes and pray

When will happiness be the way

One lady robbed and one person beaten

This can not be true I think

What is wrong with the world I see

History repeats itself

The bad are still bad and people still get hurt

The more hate the more sadness is done

I wonder why prisons are full?

With every Tom ,Dick and Harry who has a problem with the world that I know

They have been hurt and the pain they feel is real

Why it has happened only God knows

But I can tell you this

They spend the rest of their lives trying to be reborn and fix the wrongs they did

When I would of forgot what got me so mad and find a way to bring on the happiness I love so much

Now they suffer to the end of their days

They will tell us in every way

If only they turned and took a different path

They could be hear reading this than holding angry thoughts back

Bring on every good emotion you can think

I want to be filled up with every moving thought

You have it in you I am sure of that

Put all your energy into love not hurt

I can think of many good feelings myself

But who wants to listen to me

When you can talk and let loose

Give me every nice word you ever thought of

I will listen intently and patiently

You have my attention with every word you type

Don't stop now you are flowing like a river turned to gold

I can spend days listening to all the good things you have to offer

This is the life I want to see

Time and time again enlighten me

Keep those eyes DREAM ON! "I wonder why prisons are full?" We are the most imprisoned nation on earth. A lot of it is just BS. Keep your outlook! God bless!

You and I see the world the same way, it hurts deeply to see so much hurt and pain, our life can take a turn in a second so if you see happiness and beauty, touch it, taste it, love it. In time this too will change, as sure as the world turns the life on Earth changes and time has started to speed up. I always love you Poems my kind and loving friend. Great hub, thumbs up your fan

Darlene Sabellla I just enjoy having the opportunity to feel happiness once. Then I know I will do whatever it takes to feel it again. I am following your lead you have me hooked on smiling again.Happiness is found all through life.We just have to look a little closer in the trash others throw at us.Remember one mans trash is another mans treasure.
