Clearing A Path Through the Brush

Updated on October 3, 2013

No Time Like The Present

With fall here and the end of summer

We can see the remains

Life has been halted and dead tall weeds lay

Where all kinds of plant life was abundant

Now it is dried up and wilted

Left to return to the ground where it came

Is our life any different ?

We are busy day after day trying to enjoy what we have worked so hard for

Then one day it is all gone

Like a raging fire that devours everything in it's path

A writer who works diligently on his masterpiece

Then all it takes

Is a quick tap of one key delete

All is erased in a flash

Still wondering if it really is a waste

Maybe the writer will write something better

The fire cleared the way for a new project and desire

So different than anything we know

Next year the flowers and weeds will both fight to survive

They don't hesitate to grow new again neither should we

Finding the time and energy combined

To bring happiness to our mind

Pausing occasionally to see if we are heading in the right direction

Learning from other peoples mistakes and our own

To reveal a new truth

We have grown

Everything we have enjoyed with great passion

Is gone

Never to return the way it was

To look toward the future and make plans for tomorrow and every day that follows

      Michael-Milec Some lessons in life are hard to swallow.I have to walk the same path and get thorns in my side and cuts and bruises till I realize I had enough. There is a better way. I just didn't see it or was mature enough to understand and had to do it all over again and again.I am just happy I had the time to practice. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We all learn at different speeds. How great is that.Have a great weekend.

      Hi dream-on

      ' no time like the present,'-only to remember at given moment of opportunity; no regrets would slow down our full joy of living.

      Voted interesting .

      Sometimes paths are not always seen right away even if you clear the path ahead there is always the obstacle
