I Tell My Troubles To The World

Listen To The Sound Of Silence

I have lived a life no one should

I have been hurt so many times in the past

I can not begin to heal

I have exsausted all my feelings and I feel empty inside

I watch others live a life I want but can't have

I am deeply saddened by each day that passes

My friends are fake and I have lost all confidence in myself

How can I go on with all these tragedies in place

It is time to listen to the sound of silence

Where nothing happens

Then where new life begins

Think of a simple thought of your heart beating

Strong and with no bearing with what you do

It is independent and beats strong

It is your core

It keeps you alive

Think of your blood that rushes through your veins that you have no control

It is life that you have been given

For a reason beyond all your beliefs

With all your love and energy

A new day will be yours

This love starts at the heart

Where life begins and spreads

Like wild flowers on a mountain edge

May each new day bring a new flower for you to see and admire

You are the most precious

So enjoy and share all your blessings

Do what you can only do

Love yourself first and everything bad will pass

The past will become a distant memory of old memories that fade away

You live now and rejoice in life today

That's me you're speaking of. I can trust no one. I end relationships before they begin. You say, "You live now and rejoice in life today". I won't- but -I might write a hub. I might ride my bike. I'll live as I can. Thanks very much. It's a very well done and honest hub.

A good bike ride always clears the head.Why do most people who ride bikes wear dark clothing?I wonder do they like playing the game of chicken in traffic.I have seen it too many times where you can't see the person.Close calls for a real tradegy.

Love is something lived even with the pain, it makes us have a greater< understanding> of love.Understanding makes us a better giver and receiver.Will I give my life for the one I love?Great poem!

Dream On,

Awesome and very much appreciated. These sentiments hit all of us at some point in time. My best friend loves to talk to people and hear their stories - we forget we all have hurts and wounds....absolutely awesome. Thank you!

I love how you ended that poem by reminding us that the past is the past and things get better and we need to love ourselves no matter what. Life is quite a ride...

Minnetonka Twin There are times I get off to a rough start.As I get the ball rolling my heart is in the right place and it takes my body time to catch up.Maybe the rest of the world a little while too.I am always waiting with open arms and a big grin on my face.Thanks and I hope all is well.
