How To Turn Desperation Into Inspiration

Updated on August 18, 2010

Take A Closer Look

What is it that drives us crazy?

Is it the same thing that brings your feelings dropping lower than the ground

It takes the wind out of your sails

It makes you uncomfortable to even speak

When the headache starts to return

Nothing could be worse than getting upset

Your madder than the crazy dog who barks at the wind

Your life is filled with turmoil and injustice

One day leads to another unhappy moment that can not be forgotten no matter how hard you try

Everything comes back to you crushing your every good feeling

 Now life doesn't seem to matter

You have heard people tell you over and over again to change your ways

You want to believe but you insist not today

Well I am not going to be any different than anyone else you know

But this time you will listen

Not because you have learned any more than before

Just because I am making you

Believe in simple trust

If this does not work we can part our ways

You never have to see me again and listen to my useless chatter

You can do as you please

You can feel confident you have beat me down

Instead of giving in

Trying to start fresh

Like a little bird who just made their first nest

You feel comfortable and happy

It is your home and no on e else will tell you what to do

You are in control and you do as you please

You have certainly learned everything life has to offer

Now lets expand on that

Your dreams are coming full force in every direction

Yo might be scared but not for long

You have confidence and strength and the power you need

To do anything you please

You are king of your castle

Everyone turns to you for advice

You feel great pressure then you realize why?

It is not that you are scared of what may happen next

It is you are afraid of what you can do different than everyones else

You are the king

Many people follow your word without question

You are a born leader

You bring people out of their shell

You press on when things look dim

You are just being someone who has great talents

Everyone appreciates and admires

But they don't have the drive

To leap on that empty lilly pad all by itself

To venture away from where it is safe

To explore every option

No matter how many mistakes

To see the sunshine in the early morning before they even open their eyes

To stay longer if need be

You know they have all gone home

Sometimes it is a lonely job

But it is one that must be filled

Just remember their is only one KING !

      Micky Dee I hope the new King is good to all.Times change and people know what they want.They want peace and love and a happy life.I feel I am one step closer to seeing it.First in my mind.Then on paper.Then reality is next.Nothing in life is impossible.Just when we stop believing we stop seeing.Have a good day filled with new wonders.

      PoeticColor wow your words have touched my heart.That was so nice.I think our lives are lived with purpose.When life gets confusing and difficult the reasons some how are no longer clear and the simpiest thing you thought to be true gets questioned.It is like having the greatest firework display but nobody is their to see it.You know what you wanted.You know you did a good job.But if no one can enjoy it you missed the boat.It really is for everyone to enjoy and love and hopefully appreciate.I couldn't of asked for a better ending to my day.You sparked my fire once more so I can be burning bright.Thanks and I hope you dream lovely dreams tonight.

      My friend your stories will always have purpose, just like there will always be hope to be found within the bright eyes of another.

      Whether or not words are written in aknowladgement of your tellings they have a presence, it draws the eyes of fellow writers, it pulls at the heart of fellow fighters and soldiers, it intreagues the minds of the ignorent.

      Never Stop writing just because mouths do not respond as eyes do, for even the mute mouthed scream out a sound to shake centuries.

      PoeticColor You have won this battle and can live on to share and experience all the worlds most wonderful feelings each day.You can help others who are lost and are in great need of help.For you are blessed to be able to experience and have found ways that make your life work.You have over come obstacles that others could not.You have peace in your heart and a love to share with those who will listen.There might be more tough times ahead but you have those tucked in your back pocket.You can work on them one at a time or leave them there forever.Nobody will care except you.I say live each day and try to smile and laugh more than the day before.I will not win no emmy but I am sure to wipe out all my enemies and leave them all alone at last.Thank you for giving purpose to one of my stories.If it wasn't for you I would be writing for nothing and that is never any fun.Have a great day and I look forward to many great times ahead.
