A Man Who Lives Life Backwards

Updated on May 25, 2012

If We Had A Chance To Live Life Over Again

To know what we know now

Having the answers to so many problems that have come and gone

Learning as we do each day thousands of bits of information

Billions and billions of information total

Always reevaluating our position and seeking the best solution

We do it automatically without a thought

What great minds we all have that each day is put to the test

We are all master minds hidden under all the hair

If we could see our minds at work would we do anything different

Watching each calculation take place

Watching other people think of solutions that we could never see

Our minds would be like pasta and all different kinds of macaroni mixed together

Just add a little sauce and we can feast our eyes on a meal

So nutritious and I am sure it is definitely brain food

Having the ability to think something new

An idea or concept totally fresh

With the trillion of minds that think

Why not go in reverse and see the world from the behind instead of upfront

Take a seat in the back instead of the first seat of the bus

It is the same bus ride but how can it be different ?

Well first you feel every bump

You roll forward when you stop

You hear the break squeal and you wonder is everything o.k.

The smell is different too

A person with body odor just lingers on long after the person is gone

Todays paper can be found tucked inbetween two seats

The news that somebody liked and wanted to share

It was left without a warning or any pleasantrys

To bad they don't have a newspaper drop off so more people would share

How simple could it be to have a spot where you could leave a newpaper,magazine or a book

Then you would get more for your money and can enjoy the ride

Even if it is cramped

Some people read in dim light

You get to see all the people

Who comes and who goes

What stop they came on and what stop they leave

If they are happy or sad

Frustrated or in a hurry

Going to work or going to the gym

In college or in a band

Listening to music or just humming their favorite tune

Talking to themself as if they are crazy

Now today it is common on the blue tooth baby

So when you think you have seen everything guess again

Live life from the tail end and it is never the same

It is farther to walk and sometimes slippery

You have to find a seat or you will have to stand

Listening to someone mumble is almost expected to happen

No smoking unless we go back twenty years ago

It is funny what we remember and what we forget

It is all in our heads to process like a food processor working constantly

It is up to us to put the right food in to get the right thought out

Have a wonderful day this is my stop I have to move to the front

Reach around the man with a box and dodge the old lady who is bending down

My ride is never the same and my mind never stops

      I'm currently fighting HubPages and my rights (Bill of Rights) on a hub they still won't publish. I may get kicked out of HubPages. That's okay. I will become daisyflowrs1 ;)

      daisyflowrs More and more places are smoke free.That is a beautiful thing.Good luck on your hub I am sure it will be terrific.Deborah Brooks A smile can last for seconds but in my mind it stays forever like wallpaper that you have seen for years and has left so many wonderful fine memories.Now long gone replaced by a more modern look but the impression is too good to be erased.Thanx so much for taking the time to read and share your wonderful thoughts.

      daisyflowrs Maybe there are times when my mind drifts off.Early impressions some we never forget.Like standing behind someone in line that was smoking a cigar.The sweet smell. Then someone smoking a cigarette.The smell of smoke you want to choke.That burns your eyes and all the hairs in your nose.Well for Ginseng I am all for it.Sudoku I never could get into.It makes my head spin.Well I wonder what tomorrow will bring a new thought or an old thought back that has risen from years of sleep.Either way I will share it one way or another oh brother.

      It appears someone's working memory is on the blitz. So, the short term memory either files the memory wrong and has difficulty retrieving it or doesn't remember to file the memory at all. I would definitely forget the lingering body odor in the air after the person is long gone. Tell this someone to start taking some Ginseng and do Zudoku or Sudoku puzzles. My spelling memory is on the blitz.
