It's Not Time But I Do It Any Way

Updated on March 24, 2017

Waking Up Not Because I Want To

Because I have to

I return to the world I live

As I have only half learned how to give

I see people who do a job

They act as if they were born to do that job

Confident and fearlessly

What if we were born with the ability to have many jobs

One would never satisfy our desires

As crazy as it seems

Never an expert at one job

Forced to move to the next one

It is who we are

A little person deep down in our own body

To big yet in some ways too small

We are always fighting with ourselves

An inner conflict that won't stop

We watch how people fight another person

We should be so lucky

How do you separate the two of us

Is it me against you

All about me

I walk forward

Me who comes in last

I feel powerful

The same I is lonely

As I enjoy the most beautiful things in my life

I am also scared of the bad people who stop at nothing to destroy life

I try to comprehend in my mind and I can't

How or why a person would hurt another person

Without thinking ?

Without remorse ?

As if they are above everyone else

What they feel is and always the only thing that matters

I am born to live

To share all the goodness in the world

With every person who needs some love

With every attempt

There are those people who hate life

With such a evil presence

They can never be trusted

Just two steps away

Looking at you when you are not looking

Watching your next move

While you are busy trying to put your day together

You don't worry

Because you have done nothing wrong

Your day is made up of a zillion little parts

You use all your energy

Finding new ways to find the missing pieces

You have been taught mind your manners

Don't get involved

Don't make waves

It's not your problem

So as you follow your plan

There is still that other man

Who stands in the way

Of people just like you

Every day

Nobody knows how to help

So many people don't bother

Shrug their shoulders and say it's none of my business

A sadness in everyone's heart who has been broken

Not a difference of opinion

A change of attitudes

A love gone South

A problem

Where it won't just go away

When someone is hurt for no reason

A terror that intensifies instead of diminishes

An issue of time and place

That is an easy one to notice

Any time and any place

Not so easy to correct

With all the laws on the books

Will one more law just add to the confusion

I make every effort to surround myself with the people that reflect

All the good there is in life

Friends and family

A love so strong

Thinking nothing will go wrong

In life we see in the news

Every day innocent people who have been hurt or killed

Yesterday it could of been me

Living a life

With just the greatest of all intentions

Now their precious life is gone

They had no control of the out come

I don't think it was God's plan

To ever see anyones's life destroyed

I do believe God is here to pick up the pieces

Help other people and let them know

We got this

With the greatest power on earth

We will survive long after our physical body dies

We are reminded many times

It's never to hard

It's never to late


In a world that cares

Loving one another

It feels and is right

Just like a compass

Here to guide you

Without question or hesitation

Giving without conditions

Always loving

Because that is what life is truely all about

      Michael-Milec Each day is another day. We can learn and appreciate so much as long as we open up to the world of love. We can look in many other directions it will take us places but none so beautiful. When given a choice I know my decision and will spend every last breath helping and caring. Thank you for many wonderful stimulating comments. Enjoy an amazing Sunday.

      Pragmatic. Life's summary in its essence echoes in your open statement "Not because I want to - Because i have to." Soon we are thrown into life's routine already established for group ages , learning and applying/ practicing good or bad ideas slowly choosing and determining what is "best for me" and never let it go. Grateful for positiver and godly role-models , thus minding our own sailing through calm or stormy waters of life's sea toward the other side "where we will survive long after own physical body dies." I like that, because I know into whose hands I have entrusted all my being.

      Yes, you are so right. I see that sometimes. I think the biggest hurdles for lots of people are pride and selfishness. Um maybe you just inspired my next hub, lol. Have an awesome day.

      Terrie Lynn I keep thinking most people try hard to do the right and honest thing. There will always be a few people who don't care about other people and their families. They are selfish and want what they want at any cost. Thank you for reading and sharing. I hope your day brought you happiness and love.
