A Time To Think
How Could We Forget ?
I don't mean the every day I'm up
I am moving
Going to work
Saying hi to my neighbors
Talking to my wife or kids
Not both at the same time
That is a little to much to ask
These are things we do that become routine
Without thought or effort
Like we are on speed dial
Just press a button and done
I am talking about real thinking
Taking the time to write about our day and how we really feel
No holding back
Picking a subject that really bothers you and writing your views
Asking all the right questions
Who what when and where and sometimes why ?
Are my beliefs valid ?
Have my beliefs changed over the years and I didn't notice
Have I been to preoccupied with doing not living ?
It is easy not to think ?
Let me go to work and do my job and don't bother me
What do you want from me ?
Haven't I done enough ?
Either in a marriage , relationship or friendship
Remembering a x friend who no longer exists in my life
They crossed me one time to many
I am done
It was never my fault
They should of known better
How many people have we known to fall in this category ?
It was a long time ago
I don't want to talk about it
This is a touchy subject nobody wants to mention
Family or friends who are takers
After all I did for them
They treat me this way
Can you hear yourself ?
I know I can
Their are many childhood dreams that went bust
Now years later I never thought what if I pursued that
Where would I be today ?
More often than not
I am so happy I didn't go in that direction
The things that I thought were going to be just fine
When I first moved I use to think often what would life be like if I got my wish
I was so happy just were I was
I forgot that my neighbor I loved so much died ?
They built three new houses around the corner
Construction on the highway
The taxes went even higher
That would of been a pain every day
Now that I think of it
Moving was the right choice
I loved living their then and I love visiting now
To live a rewarding life
We should evaluate what we have at different times
Sometimes we keep reliving the old memories
What we forgot is some of the real facts
Now I can honestly say giving it more thought
I am glad I have made the choices I did
I wasn't so sure then
Deep down we always want our life to be the best it possibly can be
Now that we dug up a lot of old feelings and emotions
I gave you so things to think about
I remember this saying over and over when I was growing up
Nobody said life was going to be easy
Now I would like to add another line and give it a proper ending
If we didn't do what we did we wouldn't be who we are today
