Feeling A Different Color Blue

Updated on January 19, 2011

I Can't Explain It Yet

I am battling the demons from within

They are not seen but they make me cough and wheeze

I wonder how could they of come without me knowing

I must of let my guard down and they found an underground tunnel to dig their way through and let themself in

I will fight you with my every last breath

You come at me the strongest in the night when I am a sleep and resting

You come silently and don't show yourself until I wake

Then you take my voice away and I fight to get it back

I take the my special potion that will kick you in the behind

It makes me a bit weary but I can get twenty winks

This gives me more time to think

I have a plan to finish you for good

I feel the chills that you give me when you are near

I will not show you any fear

I may be slow getting up and bending over

You have attacked me and taken me off guard

I will return with reinforcements and I will scare the bejesus out of you

I want you to run not hide

That hide of yours I want to tan butt good

So you will think next time when you try to come back

I don't want to see you around any of my friends either

You have no good in my life and you should be shown your own gravestone

I am a fair man and will give you every chance to redeem yourself even though you have no good qualities

As you stop and think is this the life that you want to lead

Making people sick and causing them their greatest pain

You tell me this is the only life you know

I say it is time to change and I am showing you how

But my ancestors have all been colds and flu's and have been hated for centuries

I can't break the tradition

Why not ?

You have friends here that will help and guide you on your way

But what will my family think ?

That you are brave enough to be your own person and that is an admirable trait

But what if they laugh at me for being so foolish ?

They tell me it can't be done and very soon I will come back with my head between my knees and then I will pay the price

They are trying to scare you

Don.t let them

I know we have not been the best of friends

Actually we have been enemies since we met

I have cursed you since the day I was born

But all this can change here and now

How do I know for sure ?

Trust me

How ?

You have to see what it is like to make someone happy ?

To put a smile on their face for no reason

The smile can stay there for days

No matter how hard people try they can't wash off that lovely grin

Some people think it is the supernatural at work

I know it is just the beautiful power from within

It has only one wish and that is to be shared and enjoyed by all

But I don't know

How can I trust you ?

That this is not a trick ?

To what make you sick ?

But I have hurt so so many

Yes that is true but it can stop right here and now

People can start to forgive you and all you have done

Then soon they will want to forget

We don't live in the past and the present is here today

Grab my hand and I will help you up

You are not a bad looking guy even though green and pale white is not my color

I am still not sure ?

What are you afraid of change?


Change can only make things better

But it takes time and you have to love your work

Well kind of think of it, I did have a lot of sick days last year and I have to work extra hard on school vacations and all holidays

We work every day but we don't call it work here

 We call it play

What do you mean ?

I never ever, ever get to play ?

It was forbidden like smiling or laughing or having fun

We were confinced that this was the only life and not to listen to others

I am here for you whenever you need help

Is that true ?

Why did your family and friends leave you all alone?

Because every cold has to be brave and prove himself

Is that the way to live ?

Always trying to prove yourself


Well when do you rest

We get very little sleep and that makes us more cranky and miserable

So we can develop our best talents

What a waste

Here we sleep ever night and that is a must

A very few will try to challange that and when they do they end up paying the Piper

Who is the Piper ?

That is another story

Now don't you feel better not sneaking around and scaring people

Hiding in dark hallways and hiding with germs you call your friends

But now I have know one

No now you have everyone you ever wanted

Friends just keep popping up

We have lots of play time

Lots of smiles to deliver

It is a hard job but we do make it fun

We sometimes have to pull a graveyard shift

Some people are so stubburn the only time they smile is in their sleep

But soon as we give them the love bug and they come around

I love bugs

I am good at bugging people and I have given people the bug for years

No it is a different kind of bug

I am confused

Don't worry Rome wasn't built in a day

What is Rome ?

You don't get out much do you ?

Well we plan on many vacations and love the sun and the beaches

I have never been to the beach since we were told the rain and the slush is where we do our best work

They told us the beach is just a lot of sand in between your toes

So what would do all day

I usually hide on kleenex and wait

Well those days are over and now you have to go mingle

What is mingle?

It is where you get to meet new friends and have a few laughs

Where do I do that ?

You reallly don't know anything do you ?

One day at a time and we will learn together

Let's start you have to go out on the Hub Pages and meet as many people as you can

It is the best place to start and everyone helps everyone all the time

Wow that sounds like fun

It is

Can I get started now ?

You already have

That's fun

Can I do it again ?

You can and you don't have to ask me

Don't I have to get permission ?

Nope and you have to do it alone

But you said you would never leave me alone

No I am here if you need me but I want to see you have fun on your own

O,k, I want to thank you for helping me

No I want to thank you for seeing the life that you can live

See you later I am off to have all the fun one can have in one day

      Kathryn Keep the lessons coming.I might have to be beaten over the head but in time I know things will finally sink in.I just keep on trying to redefine what I love so much in my life and how I can make others see life is just a wonderful picture of beauty.One that they can see and have the pleasure of experiencing every day .Have a wonderful weekend.

      don't worry too much about the grammar.I can tell you a few words,but you have the ideas and feelings.Some people mix up "your" as in" your coat", and " you're" as in

      "you're a little early for dinner".This second one really means "you are" abbreviated to "You're".In spoken language they sound the same.Many people mix them up.Hope that helps you and the writing.!!

      Pixienot believe it or not I proof read it over and over before I publish it.I even have my wife make some corrections.I think I may sign up for a writing class but times are really tight with work and all.Just so someone can correct my grammar to help.I have asked a few people on the Hub Pages but they are also so busy.So I do the best I can with what I have.I apoligize for any errors that make the writing less enjoyable or choppy.I love the excitement of an idea carried out into its written form:,)Thanks so much.

      Well, dream on, this is the best self-help prose I have ever read. Thank you!

      I would suggest, however, that you read your work aloud and pay attention to the spelling before you publish.

      Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
