Running On Empty

Updated on May 18, 2010

I Don't Know The Meaning Of No

When one day leads to the next and there is no one left to talk to

I keep an open mind and keep trying all the time

When friends you got to know suddenly disappear out of the blue

What can you do?

Find Joy in the world you love so much

When your eyes are weak and blink 300 times a minute

You know it is time to go to sleep

But you are a rebel who fights for one more cause

Other people move on with their own lives and you stay here

You rally against all evil and fight with the knights of armor

You feel strong again and witness hope

There is a desire you will take hold of and will not let go

Freedom never ending freedom

That always holds its head higher than the rest

You can challange me again and put me through every test

I am a survivor

I love to love the sweetness of life

I will never stop swinging for that fast ball

I am waiting till my ship comes in

I hear the parade marching

I can see the fireworks in the sky

I imagine all the presents under the tree

I have had my first bite of roast beef for that Sunday dinner

I know what god wants

I know I can provide and support myself and others

I have a heart of Gold

I have a mind that keeps on blinking

There will be no time to waste

I am here until I turn into dust

Like generations before me

Now is the time to get everything done

Here comes morning and my spot in bed is left empty once again

When will I learn

Life can not be accomplished in one day

I sit here with a smile on my face

Just wait I might just surprise you today

      Micky Dee I use to play baseball when I was younger.No matter what a took a swing at I usually strcuk out or ground out.I was small as a kid and the pitcher sometimes had trouble getting over my strike zone. Sometimes I got lucky and got walked or hit and got on first base.If it was a full count it was better to swing away then get left there standing holding the bat looking at a good pitch going past you.So what if you get a hundred strike outs or more.You are playing the game and swinging away and maybe you will finally get a hit.I always played with my friends and it was a lot of fun.Now in life you learn to apply what you learned years ago.I am up at bat again and this pitcher is good.I feel lucky and I don't care I'm swinging for his fastball.We shall see?Your up next good luck. Tkumah I am learning from friends like you.Thanks for your support and I will keep trying till something works.I always think it is more fun if others share in your journey.

      Passion and more passion. How can one balance fire with water?

      A sense of dissatisfaction, futility and inspiration. What you are trying to accomplish is simply not as easy as acquiring physical and monetary possessions.

      Patience is a muscle that stretches so thin, till one is close to breaking but, this is the nature of loving god.

      The day of harvest will come....

      "I will never stop swinging for that fast ball"- I've swung at the fast ball, the curve, the slider, the spit ball - I've swung when the pitch was inside and outside. I keep swinging. If there is no better coaching, if there are no better pitches, I'll keep swinging. I'll strike out too often. But, I don't want to be just a spectator. Thanks DREAM ON!
