I Stop For More

Updated on June 7, 2013

Things Change

Each day happens right before my eyes

Do I see it or am I blind to all its splendor

Am I searching for a world that doesn't exist ?

Trying to put unreasonable expectations and strict rules

On my life that is nothing but a crap shoot

Throwing up the dice and watching them land

Having no control of the actual outcome even though I threw the dice

All my wishing and praying doesn't make a difference

Well I will take that thought and keep it in my mind

At the same time I will learn to change like the wind

Blowing in any direction I see fit

I will learn to accept the differences I experience with new understanding

Looking deeper into their meaning

As I cannot control my day or neither would I want to

I will continue going in directions that will fill my physical and emotional needs

Enjoying not only the good times but the situations that give me a less desireable outcome

Only to be enriched with new vitality and an honest perspective

I am here to live for the experience

Not to live and shy away from what I see as a disappointment or setback

To welcome my life in any shape and form

Trying to apply simple techniques that will heighten all the good

Deal with the bad and keep an open mind for the world in between

As a firepit burns in the night

Sometimes with a blazing unforgiving heat

Soon It can be warm and comforting

Lighting up the darkness with a special romantic mood

That soon something so primal and fierce

Has turned my attention to a deep passion of my desire

Seeing my wife in the red dazzling flickering flames

How my life has changed

Only for the better

As we watch the fire burn out

We turn up the heat and go inside to complete

Something we have started and haven't finished

A world of unlimited possibilities

Many promises to keep

A love so deep

That only inspires and never deminishes who I am or who I may become

Helping my wife also find her true self

Giving to each other more than before

Keeping our individualism

So we may both learn and grow to become more

      Eiddwen I am so happy to give to others who have taught me so much.I found that I feel better when I give than I have ever felt from what I have recieved.Maybe it's age or just a new thought I never noticed before.Even though now I give only words my hopes that these words will serve you well and make your life a little more fulfilling.To see you rewrite my words that you liked makes me laugh,smile and feel so good.When in return all I can say is thanx so much.You have made my day brighter.Wishing you a very wonderful Sunday.

      Oh so wonderful and I especially liked the words

      I will continue going in directions that will fill my physical and emotional needs

      Enjoying not only the good times but the situations that give me a less desireable outcome

      Only to be enriched with new vitality and an honest perspective

      I am here to live for the experience

      Not to live and shy away from what I see as a disappointment or setback

      To welcome my life in any shape and form

      Thank you so much for sharing this gem.

      kidscrafts I never realized but to want others to be more like us is not accepting each person for who they are.When maybe we should be more like them and seeing and feeling from a different place I have never been.Kathryn Stratford So happy to share.When my wife is under the weather I can neither change the weather nor my wife but I can understand her reasons and why she feels the way she does.Sometimes she has to deal with things her own way and in her own time.I can offer my assistance if it is needed at any time and a loving hand to hold.billybuc I am flattered to see you.Once again it is so nice to agree on another view of life.Thanx to everyone for all your wonderful and insightful comments have a great night.

      Beautiful sentiments expressed here. "Be like the willow" I have heard more than once....bend with the winds of time and fate but do not break....that is what I try to do. I try to learn from everything that happens to me, and I try to control that which is in my power to control.

      Have a wonderful weekend my friend and well done with this.

      Beautiful, as usual. It's good to go with the flow, to bend but not break (like a strong tree), and to learn and grow from experiences, while sharing life with a special someone, enriching each other and allowing one another to become individuals. I love it!
