Waking Up Is Hard To Do

Updated on July 5, 2012

Somebody Glued My Eyes Shut

That's how I feel

My eyes are parlty closed and partly open

Each thought I think is not new but it is different

Each experience changing me slowly

To see a new view on life

Nobody wants to talk about and express

A subject laid to rest

An arguement or a problem ?

This is not how life is

This is not reality

The truth is life does not work that way

Well I question and beg to differ

Life is not planned and is far from safe

There are risks to take

But the rewards are so great

So we continue to exchange differences of opinion

You have to play it safe and what happens if it doesn't work

I will not argue with you but I do not agree

We go back and forth

Lets talk

I can never see life like you

Forever an optimist

As we part ways

Who is right who is wrong ?

Only time will tell

Each day I am put to the test

To find one more reasons to feel good once again

Not for what I see but for what can be

I live with inspiration and more thoughts than grass has acorns

Each hidden so well

Until we take a closer look

There are piles and piles of acorns to be found

We have only scratched the surface as many more hit the ground

Moving forward and forgetting this day

Only to remember bending and raking

What for ?

For exercise that's what we must of been doing for hours

Until next year and the same routine has taken place

Now we know what it was that kept us busy

A way of life that brings pleasure and happiness to so many

      I know this feeling. Sometimes I feel my get up and go, got up and went! But we get up and keep on going and find a positive attitude along the way. Nice work.
