Full Of Excitement

Updated on March 29, 2017

Where Do We Begin ?

There has never been a greater time than now

All our experiences and actions have led us up to this point

My body trembling

All the thoughts in my brain firing off in succession

As they are meant to do

Until now they have been side tracked and easily diverted

Away from the greater good

I have been a sleep

I have been awake

Many times not remembering what I did or didn't do

Enjoying the fun times

Mixed with an unpleasant combination

To view all

Not just one incident or event

Each to short to cover any moment in depth

As a spider makes his way across my kitchen ceiling

A little black fly is not far away

What are the chances the two will meet ?

When both have more than enough space so both could survive

Then by a stroke of luck

I have seen them both

Each insect met an uncertain fate

As people we can and do a lot of things

Like the spider and the fly

Are we not living ?

Then one day we meet our demise

What can we do to make every effort count

So that we don't waste our time freviously

Is life meant to be a wonderful series of pleasures ?

One topping the other

A life of learning and understanding

Deeper than just the emotional body

Maybe a sweet combination of both

If we are not careful will we make a mistake that can't be corrected

If we are smart we can pull our life together

Then experience the joy

Living life as the most expensive and magnificient piece of art

Where every line is a stroke of genius

We can look at many times

See all different things

Be happy forever

Remind ourselves when we forget

Priceless comes with a price

That we have to know

Before we can be on display

So people may understand

There is no better way

Life is simple

Live until we die

      Great words! We live in a rough world and may not be the same for everyone. Our experiences sometimes coincides and sometimes differ.

      Tamara Moore I find it incredible that we all can live each day and experience so many different feelings from the same world.As we look closer at our own lives we can see so many connections and bonds that are like a piece of thread going through a needle. It so hard to do but once you do it you can sew anything. Thank you for your comments and your sweet thoughts. May today give us the courage to try things we haven't tried so we can add to the list of things we cherish.

      Most truthful poetic words. I have always believed to enjoy life we must march to our own music.

      Only if we could remember or be aware of

      that life we have is now - to enjoy it to full extent;

      A time we have is now (yesterday is past tomorrow will be again NOW

      to profit best of it

      thus the next moment when "now" comes

      we can continue gaining wisdom,

      stronger, happier , healthier and more ensure in our hope,

      never, never to be disappointed.

      Then - at the very end

      at transition trend ,

      the most important to me

      reach the eternal appointment.

      Dora By finding ways to see joy in everything. We stay busy and are focused on good not the bad in life. Which can result in only more good. Even if times get tough and are a struggle it is easy to go from that to feeling good that we have practiced for years.Than going from an angry state of mind to the last time we were feeling miserable and unhappy and that becomes a pattern for sadness. Thank you for reading and sharing. May your day be as wonderful as you.

      I like the attitude of keeping it simple and maintaining excitement about the present. "If we are smart we can pull our life together

      Then experience the joy."

      Sharon E Shenko Your poem has a beautiful rhyme and wonderful verses.. You uncovered so much. Did you just write that ? Wow. Thank you for sharing and exploring life and it's unlimited possibilities. Have an incredible day.Manatita44 I like the way you put a nice twist. In life it is strange, funny and odd how we move along until something happens in our life and after that incident we have a whole different view of life. I love poems because they spark that uncanny twist that I never seen before. I could not of known until shown. Thank you for adding and sharing to make each poem a delight. Hope your day is getting better.

      Beautiful poem Dream on.

      I think each one of us has a different song

      And everyone else can listen or sing along

      Each of us is a living work of art

      And from a tiny seed we all must start

      Until we are given freewill and rein

      To live and express the knowledge we have gained

      But one thing all will abide

      For good or bad no matter how we try

      All who have lived must die
