Let Growth Spread Naturally

Updated on October 2, 2013

Change Comes Hand And Hand

I can honestly say I have tried

To stay where it is safe

Avoiding any bumps and regression

The harder I tried the more I am thrown in the thickest of all weeds

Compelled to turn back

I am stuck

In an unwanted place

Neither here or there

We do not live life in controlled surroundings

To be in limbo is not helping us in any way

After years of dismay

I am forced to explore other choices

Life is unforgiving for those who stay rigid and inflexible

A world of clues for those who search

Watching the tides rise and fall

Looking at nature

The seasons always changing

The lives of people begin and end

It is not the ending I had hoped for

Wasting valuable time

Searching for answers in the wrong place

It is only now I can see

They have been here all along in front of my face

I remain calm and observe so much more

When I know with each passing there is new birth

I am always trying to make things happen

That will change my outcome for the better

      Michael-Milec I once thought I could be more than happy and live out my life with everything I have and know. Not needing to want more and change.Just enjoying the pleasures I have in many different ways.Bringing out the beauty others don't take the time to see.Unfortunately we don't live in a vacume and change constantly disrupts the way things are.These disruptions are just necessary changes that keep life alive and rewarding for not only us but for others. Thank you for your help and encouragement.

      We must all be masters of our own lives in order to reach our goals and achieve our dreams.

      vocalcoach We all have lessons to learn .Some come easier than others. If we are not careful we may be going in circles . I am so glad I get dizzy easily that forces me to stop. Try a different approach and see if that works. If once again I get an outcome that doesn't please me. It took awhile.Only now I am practicing what I have learned. To move on. Thanx so much for reading and commenting.
