Where To Go From Here

Updated on August 11, 2010

I Was Hoping You Would Know ?

In life there are so many choices to make

Many times I have fallen flat on my face

Listening to advice from my elders

Remember when you fall off the horse get right back on it

Well it sounds so easy

Until you try it

My horse got up and left

So I have learned a different approach

Start walking and it will give you time to think

You might find a better way

But until then I am still walking and singing

Since I also was told years ago In a school production

Please don't try to sing

Just mouth the words

It is not that hard

You will be doing us all a favor

Following the teachers advice

They have to be right ?

Right ?

Until I was pushed by a fellow student

Then pushed again

I realized I have two choices

Listening to my fathers advice

Take a stand and you will let them know you are not one to be pushed around

Choice number two not an option

Keep letting them do it to you

You will keep getting picked on the rest of your life

Who would want that kind of life ?

So I took a stand

Hey thats enough

Ya what are you going to do about it

So as the pushing continued no choice but to take another stand

Dad would be proud

It would soon turn out ot be like Custers last stand

Want to fight ?

I didn't say that , he did but I accepted

So it was kind of my choice by process of elimination

Since the reasoning block was not listed to check off

A fight after school and then we shall see

Who will win the bully or the underdog ?

Place your bets

How did I get myself in this mess

Is this the way things are suppose to work out

The good guys always win right?

A few questions I had time to ask myself as the news spread fast around the school

But there was a catch

You don't want to fight someone who knows how to kick your ass

He takes Karate with a capital K

Now I am in a jam

O.k. I was lucky I had a cousin who got me out of this one

He stood up for me and said no one is going to fight my cousin

The real truth is my cousin and him were kind of friends

So he seen me later and said there was not going to be a fight

Forget about it

Your one lucky guy

I didn't say a word

But that would of been the day Michael died

So have it fate

Dumb luck

I didn't fight or start any fights after that

Lesson learned

Those who stick there necks far enough out

Will get it chopped off

I think Tom from last Thanksgiving gave me that advice

By the way has anybody seen Tom ?

I just want to thank him

So this is more like an afternoon riddle

Thanks for seeing life through my eyes

They might be blurry and red but not black

      Nellieanna I am so glad to leave those years behind and moving on to better days.I did enjoy those times when they happened even when it wasn't the best of times.I hung in there like so many.Knowing these few sad times would not last forever.Thank you for your comments and I hope this and many more of my writings bring you new found joys.

      Very well explained how too much reality is for kids - and grown up ones too. You gripped my heart with this one.

      Micky Dee Remember the pen is mightier than the sword.I do not remember who said that?But the work you do can and does help so many.I have never been in the service but I would only learn about war from the movies if it wasn't for your stories and honest thoughts.You give me knowledge that I never learned in school.Thanks again and always of making my world better.I guess there will always be politics and corruption.All I know is you and I will not have to go to jail for stealing and bribes anytime soon.That is not the life I will ever live.I just keep looking for the right people to share and give what little I can give.Have a great day and I am curious how many flats have you had since you have been riding your bike.They must be able to make tires indestructable by now.With technology of today.

      I wish I had some wisdom that would help the youth of today. Alas, all I know is bad politics! "It's best to pretend that all is fine. The next election will take care of everything."

      joy56 You are so sweet.I realized long ago life is just what you make of it.Good,bad or sad.I chose to live a good life no matter what.I really enjoy talking to you and I miss you when you disappear for awhile.I guess everyone is busy with their own lives.The hub pages is really something special.I just hit my one year anniversary and I got a chance to review some of my comments I have made when I first started writing.I got to look over some of my first hubs.I use to love our talks and I wish you never left before so I could go back to our feedback on the hubs you wrote.I don't always understand peoples actions but I think we do something that keeps us safe.In our own world and hidden from life in some way.I am always learning and have so much more to learn.I often feel sad for people who I have cared for so much that are no longer with me.I haven't learned how to do so much more with the people now so I wont be sad in the future.I have always had great expectations and unfortunately my life hasn't reached my dreams yet.I will keep on trying until it exceeds my wildest thoughts.Thank you for being a friend.

      Dim Flaxenwick It is good to stir up a variety of emotions.Why not use them.My father use to say we can't know love unless we know its opposite.So we can tell the difference.Then we get to choose the emotions we love the best and practice them over and over.He also said he was a lover not a fighter.I take after him again.I know people get paid well for being great fighters not great lovers but we get to have so much more fun.:>)
