I Know You Don't Require Any Sleep

Updated on February 6, 2014

My Body Needs To Go To Bed

Can I read your story tomorrow ?

Sure you can

You can read all five of my new stories

I get tired too

I am learning to push myself farther

Reaching for my dreams doesn't come easy

You have a constant battle of give and take

Making choices every day trying to give you an edge

Trying to get up earlier to get a five minute head start

Letting some exciting things go

Choosing to pick the things in my life that I love more than anything

Not just doing what gives me fun

Preparing a place for my future by making some sacrifices now

A trade off for more excitement later

Reading more about improving our mind and spirit

Finding out what makes our mind operate

Things that we can do

To be more efficient and productive

Thinking requires time and lots of mental energy

Making sure our bodies are in good health

Only helps to maximize their potential

Separating ourselves from bad thoughts

Working through those difficult decisions

Looking for a happiness that is not easily seen

One that is hidden from within

When it hits the air it flies everywhere

Blending with everything else in our life

Real love never stops

It flows through every pore

It is found in everything we see

From trees to animals

To all the things we make

To people where it is secretly hidden in our thoughts and our actions

So many people don't care to look

They think of bad thoughts

That bring our mind in a whole different direction

Every day they have to accept their poor decision

Living with the end result

Always wanting more

Never being really happy

Taking away from others

Being selfish and looking out for ourselves only

It is my opinion only

I am always trying to dig up new facts

Real proof

That doing bad things no matter how small

All take their toll

Little by little

Until one day we see unfavorable results

I think we have to hang in their

Don't pay to much attention to what they are doing

Concentrate on what you can do

Letting your inner conscious be your guide

Separating right from wrong

Helping others who are not in a good place

The old saying holds true

The proof is in the pudding

Crime doesn't pay

One good turn deserves another

The right always wins in the end

Life is a balance of good and bad

How can we know what a sunny day is unless we have had bad weather to compare it to ?

How do we know what healthy is unless we have been sick

Just as more thoughts enter my mind instantly

Thousands in just one day

I don't sort them all out

I do what is good and more good will follow

The rest of my thoughts will drop off like flies sprayed by Raid

Soon they fall until they don't move at all

Then on with my day

Finding more time to pray

When time is on short supply and watching others live life too

We are all in this together

Why don't we help each other

Instead of turning the other cheek

it is not for me to decide

Just me to watch and learn

Sometimes I get burned

In the end I can't think of any other way to be

As I practice more than anyone else

To get pretty good at one thing

Not being better than anything else is the real key

Just learning how to give and forgive

In the world that we live

      Gypsy Rose Lee I find my mistakes and try harder to do better. Sometimes life goes smooth. Other times it is a bumpy road and I can't wait to get off at the next stop. Either way I am here moving along. Thank you for sharing and caring.

      Always give and never forget to forgive is a great way to live. I think that keeping regrets and keeping anger are a waste of emotions we have to go on.
