Overwhelmed By Joy

Updated on March 4, 2011

I Have To Slow Down

When my heart beats fast and I can't seem to catch my breath

I am not running or playing a sport or anything of the sort

I am enjoying all life that I see and I am taking it in impatiently

I remind myself to slow down it will always be there

It is the way life is so bountiful and exciting

As I gasp for one more breath

I sit here and with my eyes open wide

Trying to take in every word I hear

But my mind is fluttering and my body is shaking but not in fear

I am trying to absorb like a sponge all the things I have learned today

I have tried to listen and not write

But my fingers want to type

I tell them no

 This is time that we have to learn and relax and take in all the knowledge that we hear

But they constantly tell me they can do so much more

They can write every thought I think

They can share the knowledge that we have learned

They can respond to all my feelings that are felt

They can actively participate in taking action

I insist that we have to learn more and resist

If I have to I will tie your hands up and then what will you do ?

I will beg to be untied and I will promise you things you could never do

I can type faster than before because I have a clear direction

i can type with less errors because I am more proficient at what I do

I can help you help others by telling them what they mean to you

So please free my hands so I may write

You listen hear

 Every time I go on the computer you want to do your thing

I want to read other peoples great stories and learn about their lives

I want to understand their gifts and take in their insights and wonderful thoughts

I can not do that if all you want to do is type

I see you may me puzzled at this dilema that you face

What if I type and tell your readers how you feel ?

Let them decide if I should type or let you read the next hub on the screen in front of you in plain view

Will we let the decision stand or will you try to force my hand

I am only a tool that lets you do the things that you want to do

How could I ever do anything against your will

I take your simple thoughts and make them fine

I take your dreams and make them mine

I take your mistakes and correct them as I go

We have a deal then

I have to think it through

I am making sure this is not one of your tricks that you have been known to have up your sleeve

I want to read hubs that are so inspiring and so devine

They are about hubbers who have given up time in their day

Who have spent many precious hours making their ordinary hubs fabulous

To every last detail

From pictures to poems

From riddles to long stories

From facts and interesting tidbits

From religion to inspiration

From educational to tutorials

From wild animation to you tubes endless videos that expain it all

How can you compare your words to that

They are plain and not bold

They don't even show pictures to create the mood and the tone

That is where your wrong my friend

I do more than what you think

I give you a blank screen with mare words to see

To let your imagination free

I let you think with your mind and not lead you down one certain path to follow

I open a door that you may come and go

As often as you wish

Read my thoughts and press them against your lips

You can feel my energy and you can taste my desire

But I let you decide how far and how deep they can go

You may read this now or read it again later

Depending on your thoughts at the time

What you will bring to the table with you is all in your mind

I can not tap into it because it is the strongest safe on earth

 Even with dynomite that is made to blow up the toughest things on earth

But I can let you work your combination and turn your keys

A little to the left and slightly to the right

Poof what a sight

The safe door is finally open and all things intact

I see the magic of all your secrets that you guarded so well

All the knowledge hidden that no one else could find

I let you willingly share what you find neccessary and fit

I enter a world that other hubbers miss

The one of each persons mind and their unlimited potential that they hold

If you come to read a line or two

I will be just happy to see your words of thanks that you leave

You are smarter than I gave you credit for

I thought you were just hands that wanted to dictate and tell others what to do

You are actually only pointers to help others in the right direction

You let their own imagination expand and grow

You give them the freedom of thought

You realize that you could never draw the pictures that each mind sees

You make each writing a love story that they have to write their own ending

I would like to shake your hand on a job well done

Together we can compromise and read more hubs and then write

We can work together as a team not one hand against the other

Together we can accomplish our dreams that are still rising like the sunrise of every day

We try to figure them out until the sunsets later that night

We sleep on it

We dream on it

Only then we can tackle one more problem

One more idea

We can help others and help ourselves

With sharing our life of show and tell

      Dim Flaxenwick I feel like I am playing cards and I was hoping for a straight and I just got a flush.From head to toe I thank you.I find peoples words so amazing.I sometimes want to hold on to them by taking them with me where ever I go.To remind me life is so so powerful and thrilling.By the way I won the big pot and lots of money with that hand.Life is full of surprises and who could of ever imagined years ago that we could communicate all over the world with just one push of a button.I know the sad thing is they say with one push of a button we could also destroy the world.I like our way better.The outcome may not have as much action but at least I get to see it.

      That was positively divine. (I so, so, can identify with wanting to read others hubs , yet wanting to write myself). You are a gem. Thank you for givin up some reading time to write this.
