My eyes grow old but my thoughts stay fresh

Updated on July 10, 2010

I will keep trying till I get it right

I sit here in a quiet place

No t.v.

No radio

I think of what it is to think outloud

Where all my thoughts can be heard without typing

Since my eyes get blurry and age sets in

What will happen if blindness takes over

Will I stop enjoying one of lifes greatest treasures

To write and see all that my mind can bear

To release all the tension and passion through words I share

To express my loveliest thoughts

To show so much emotion that fills every page

To pick and choose the best words that describe my life and my dreams

To follow through with all my pleasant peaceful remedies to all the worlds problems

To take me to a place that has no home

To have a thought extend into time

I see and feel all the emotion that makes me want more out of life

If I could no longer see would I give up the fight

Would I throw in the bull fighters cape

I see the thoughts in my head come alive and dance on the page

I may never be noticed but I feel my accomplishments don't hide

I want to tell others how  I think and this is the life I see

Always so exciting and new

I think ever day is truely a blessing wrapped up in as many words that I can express

My eyes go weary and the page goes dim

I have to leave for tomorrow what I can no longer finish today

It frustrates me

That I have so many creative juices flowing and so little time

I search for a day that will not end

      I sit here with not a sound,

      But in my head a sound comes around!

      Could it be the sound of battles?

      No! It's just my thoughts that rattle!
