I Scribble To Translate My Littlest Thought

Updated on September 9, 2017

How To Grab A Bull By The Horns

When you have never even seen a real bull

How hard that would be ?

Very dangerous

Actually pretty stupid

So lets pretend we turn the bull into a thought

I want to catch that thought before it disappears

Now that's better

That is something I can try to do

Even though the thought can be just as tough as a big old bull

Lets make it more fun and call that thought Mr. T

Now who ever goes after Mr. T. has to be real strong

Brave and a little crazy

Fast on his feet

I know I have my work cut out for me

First lets look at our options

The people who messed with Mr. T. before got pretty banged up physically

Then you have to have lots of self confidence and will power

Lets not forget stamina

The time comes when you wonder do I have what it takes

To turn that thought into something really special

Mr. T. is so different than all other thoughts

Mr. T. stands out in any crowd

Gets in my face and won't let me forget it

Even keeps me up all hours of the night

Some people walk away

The smart people run

I plant my feet and have to hold my ground

I have to prove I mean business

I am ready for anything

I am committed to making it happen

No matter how many other people have tried

I have to be different

I am going with my gut

The same guts that look so much better inside of me than out

So I wake up early

Practice hard

Because I know Mr. T. doesn't fool around

This is serious business

Many have given up and quit

I have to ride out the storm

As if it was a hurricane

Against all odds

Even when no solution is in sight

I have to have faith

I take all my weaknesses and join them together

There is strength in numbers

What once was a worry

Is now just a phase

We have to go through each insecure feeling

Remember these hurtful feelings won't last forever

When they return they will be weaker and weaker

One day powerless

As I train like any fighter would do

The put the long hours in

The days that I could be doing anything else

I chose to do this

I know in the end all my hard work will pay off

You can't rush success

Just like you can't rush a homemade apple pie being cooked in the oven

The results will be all I ever wanted

Who knows maybe so much more

      Gypsy Rose Lee If we keep trying to make things happen the results might not be what we expected. With that information we can go forward and try different approaches that might work. Each step takes time and patience. Thank you for your support and adding your own views and thoughts.

      John Hansen I am proud to say you are the first to follow Mr. T. from beginning to end. Now I will try to be like a scientist and dissect each part of thought to see what makes it work. Thank you for reading and having fun at the same time. Have a great Sunday.

      What a wonderful write, DreamOn. Yes grab hold of Mt T and don't let go until you tame that thought. Good one.
