Up And Feeling Satisfied

Updated on January 31, 2016

Catching Up

I turn on the radio

Let the music set the beat

Filling my stomach with food

To fill my hunger and add nutrition

Patting our cat

Showing signs of love

Finishing the dishes and throwing in the laundry

Small jobs that need attention

Reading a few pages of another book

Each is attempt to pump up my energy

Listening to adds about campaigning for President

Each candidate trying to get heard

The future of our country

Where I am struggling just to get on with my day

I have lots of thoughts but not sure which way I will sway

      I am hoping that the spring will come around soon so that I can start to feel so much better.

      shanmarie What a wonderful world we get to experience. It would be sad if we live our life and can't enjoy the good and learn from the bad. vocalcoach I think one of the best things I have found that we all have so much to offer. Appreciating friends who care and take time to share. Thank you both for your special comments.

      billybuc I look at all my influences my wife, family, friends, coworkers, people, radio, books, hubs and the news. Trying to generate the most energy out of this moment. Using my time wisely but having fun. Bringing out my personal best. Then I drive myself to a new direction or a place I have been but totally forgot about. Seeing your comment keeps me going. Each time practicing the craft of writing which gives me endless feelings of pleasure. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Have a happy Sunday.

      You have a way of relating what we are all feeling in a very simple and yet effective poetic format...well done, my friend.
