Come Sit By Me VIIII:Challenging Days.

Updated on October 11, 2012

Good morning to you all (at least its morning here.)

11.10 am on a Thursday morning to be precise.

Lately life has been a challenging time with unavoidable obstacles to face, to endure and to win!!

Finally there is one era that can finally be laid to rest.

I feel slightly tired and battered but with a winning step I walk onwards and upwards once again.

I will share my latest journey in this hub ; and each and everyone so welcome to join me.

Simply remember that life is full of challenging chapters but we have the strength, hope and faith to carry on.

To my co-hubbers,my friends ,my hub family.


A freedom not redeemed

almost never needed???!!!

A world so captive;

hearts and chains trussed up

Is there a freedom

or are we obliged

to stand in a confined strange stillness


our cages

so lonely

so cold

so lonesome.


Have hope

have faith

walk tall

and that hidden

strengthens each

day and each surfacing emotion.

Chains now thrown in discarded heaps.

Unfold those

creased limbs

and once again face

each day

each week

each month

each year.

Upwards and


to your summit you climb once again


your niche


from your achievements

your life

your all..


Sweet scents

fill my being

Unchanged blossoms

so inspiring

So wondrous

so charming.

They fill my heart

my soul

my very whole being.

Magically entranced days

to own to love

and then to

proudly claim as your own.




but very strong.

A wisp of a bloom

a birth

of sprinkling seeds

protected by fairy like softness.

Sweet tender breaths

spread each magical

new birth

to settle and grow.

To regenerate

a message of unconditional






I hope you enjoyed and will join me again to 'Come Sit By Me'.

      Hi Eddy, Rolly posted your link on Facebook - I liked the title and what he had to say about your hub.

      You've described the ups and downs of life in such an encouraging light ... Holding on to hope and faith will pull us through the challenges of life. I believe we learn the most during the hard times.

      The video was awesome, loved the songs and the pictures. You must be a flower lover like me. I so enjoyed all of the pictures. Beautiful!

      Morning Eddy... my grandmother used to say that "Life is a pathway of roses but along the way there are also thorns."

      To have the strength, courage and wisdom to stop and deal with the thorns in life teach us much. our words Eddy touch us all. Know that you are loved here. From the top of the hill you can breath again.

      Many hugs from Canada

      Yes these mountains will always be there to test us but heartening is the knowledge that we can climb and that we can cope.

      Have a great day my friend.

      Good Morning Eddy,

      I sure needed to read this lovely poetry this morning. Those hills sometimes we have to climb are so very steep and we get so weary...but together with many loved ones and friends, we can climb together.

      Wishing you a blessed day my friend,
