The Spoils Of Time

Updated on August 16, 2012

When One Bad Turn Deserves Another

In a life filled with so many reasons not to live we find a way to make it each and every day

Look around you and see the horror

Why would we want to be part of this nonsense

If we learn to look beyond what our eyes can see

Then we can bring life and everything incredible into focus

For many people it is a daily struggle to make ends meet

Trying to cope with trying times and all the problems that come our way

Unknown to all I have none of this issues

I live a constant battle between the three of us

Me.myself and I

Who wants to become boss ?

Who thinks they know everything ?

Who won't listen ?

This is only the beginning of a world that you have never experienced before

One that intrigues the inner soul and presses against the brain like a migrane

Some would call it creativity at it's finest moment

Others might insist the person is touched by a spirit

Then even more people don't care or want to guess

They have their own attitude they carry through life

Let people do what they want as long as they don't bother me

It is a a free world and you can buy anything you want with only tiny little strings attached

This is only a sample for what is to come

I will stop here and please let me know if you want to see more...

      picklesandrufus My biggest obstacle is trying to understand why things happen the way they do.When I work hard and know what I want and things aren't lining up.So I look for my mistakes and make as many changes as humanly possible.Off to my dream world where I can do what I enjoy best.Making reality and life seem easy.So at least on paper I find the endless things that please me.Thanx so much for sharing.When I see others who love and choose to do good I forget the bad.

      I understand you completely. More and more, we must look for the positive at every opportunity, for the negative is very prevalent all around us.

      Gypsy Rose Lee You are so right.The more we surround ourselves with the good in life more good can only come.How would we know what was good unless we know the difference between good and bad.Right and wrong.Love and sadness.Thanx for sharing and sending thoughts of peace and love to others.Have a beautiful day.

      Voted up . Yes there is a lot of negativity in this world. A lot of things that aren't right. But we must look beyond all that and find the beauty in the things around us and appreciate what God has given us and make each day count to the fullest.

      Dim Flaxenwick I am in a constant battle with my feelings.Each day I want to do more but as the hours pass only so much can be accomplished.I keep searching for a way.In the end I am glad it's only a battle and not a war.Then I don't know what I would do.Minnetonka Twin When all is said and done it takes a friend to help me pull it together.I very much appreciate my hub friends for guiding me when I get in a rut.My tires spin and spin and I think what could happen next.Then in that same breath the tires pull out of that muddy hole and off I go.The only way I can explain it.It was my choice to get out of it.It was God's choice to watch and see what decisions I would decide.In the end I am a better person because everything that has happened. Then soon forgotten and off to the next pot hole around the corner.Any suggestions when my tire goes flip flop ,flip flop and I have to stop.Thanx so much.

      Dear DREAM ON-Life is definitely not easy. I have been dealing with many difficult things lately and this is what's helped me:

      .Pray and talk to God and let him in on your struggles

      . Someone has it much worse-I just lost two people to suicide because they

      weren't able to continue on. I am here and alive and well

      .I have all I need: faith, family and love

      Once we break our problems down to it's simplest form, it turns out that "All is Well."

      Blessings to you my friend :-)

      Hope my latest struggles can somehow help you a bit.

      I truly loved this, Dream On.

      It reminds me of some conversations I have with myself.

      I love the way you express your feelings. Straighforward and yet, also quirky.....

      Nice one. Dim x

      kj force I try to watch and learn the world around me.Things all have a way of balancing out in the end.Some days depressed not because of what I have done but because what I can't seem to finish.I try looking at life in a different angle to make sure I see it correctly.Now it becomes more blurry than before.Back to the drawing board to bring color where there was none.Thanx so much and I wish you a fun day filled with lots of humor.
