Home Bound

Updated on December 27, 2014

So Fulfilling

After a days work

Where I give my personal best

No matter how many people goof off

Find ways to cut corners

Leave their work for someone else to pull up the slack

Do little as they can

Find places to hide

I don't worry about therm

I focus on having fun and getting my job done in record time

Making it a game

Competing against myself

One that I know for sure I will come in first

I had a good morning and later in the afternoon a few problems

That set me back but nothing I couldn't handle

I have been here before and make it work

Leaving with a great feeling of satisfaction

I know I never have to hide

Fake things or lie

Now with work out of the way

I am proud of an honest days pay

My head still spinning

Like a top going round and round

There it is

My home in my sights

I am filled with a happiness that spans many years

One that would make my mother and dad proud

I close my eyes and think of them silently

Loving the things they taught me

As I rise to my feet

Talking to myself


I am in front of a huge audience

I quickly take a bow

Explain how honored I am

Accepting such a prestigious award

With one big grin

I say a few words

Thanks for coming

If I had to do it all over again

I would do the same thing

      Michael-Milec Life is filled with so many changes. Instead of trying to keep up I just relax and enjoy all the good that has surfaced. The feeling is so healing and rewarding. Thanking God for all I have is where it all starts and everyone in my life is where it flows.Thank you for your comments and input. It guides me and boosts me when I am out of steam. Then just like a gust of wind I am sailing again higher and higher. What a trip. You are always welcome to join me on any journey. I don't talk much but I sure love the company. Have a great day and at night may you give your body proper rest to refuel and renew itself to it's healthy condition.

      I always feel better when I have accomplished all that I set out to accomplish. It is a great feeling when everything runs smoothly like I have a set pattern to do my postings and everything gets done right on schedule.
