That's Odd

Updated on August 7, 2013

Always Surprised

Life can be tricky

Other times it can be one big mess

Trying to fix a problem or get feelings off your chest

People are just people

They live and breathe

Their minds think all different and can never be figured out

When you think people will do the right thing

Don't count the bad out

When you think there bad to the bone

You are wrong again

When you least expect it

Expect it

Troubles and tough times are bound to come

Then again in Gods amazing plan goodness shines without notice

Bringing love and new life

As if there was a plan behind everything

A master plan that we will never figure out

Each day we can try

Working long hours into the night

Some things are perfect and other things bite

I am puzzled by what I see

I am more puzzled by what I feel

Live life the best you can

Helping others when the opportunity presents itself

Then in the meantime

Write a little write a lot

Laugh at every mistake and remember we were all born with one soft spot

      Everyone has a good side, and can make wrong choices, too. People are very hard to figure out, but sometimes that is what makes life and various relationships interesting.

      Gypsy Rose Lee Add computer problems to peoples attitudes and lifes many changing situations.You have your hands full.I still have my share of challanges that keep me on my toes and shocked.Good luck let me know how things turn out.I like a quiet day where things go smooth.Some how some way God had other plans for me on that day.I find a way to pick out the good parts and rememeber that.Thanx so much for reading and commenting.

      Hi dream-on.

      Dilemmatic. Valuable concern, well written.

      Gradually, perhaps not early enough , lessons of life and living " socially" are learned ." Mind your own business " has been ignored , until. . .' 'People are just people' you said, and they aren't my problem more than me being their problem. Everyone made up its own mind ( so did I ) . They ' don't mind ' when they do they strive for excellence or righteousness ( the second is my better choice ) . Why in this culture is frequently used LOL?! - good theme for another poem. To find an escape by lol could help to " live life the best you can."

      Interesting .
