Poem:What's up with Today!

Updated on January 10, 2012

What’s up with today!

Those days

when I

For what ever


I don’t feel

like writing

here is what


Listen carefully

Go on!

Believe me!

I already have

All the possible


Safely locked away


Why this is so.

wisely because

I usually will have

The information

As many as

Two or three

days before

Reason being

Since it is

Something that!

has already

happened before

Something that!

almost ruined

In the past

Something that!

I won't have


Since it did

not leave

Such a great


And I believe

I know that it's

one of those

That's holding


up it's sleeve.

I have adopted

This measure

I have trained


and developed

A counteractive way

So whenever

That scenario ever

come Into play

I no longer

will again have

to answer to

this question

What’s up with Today?

knowing that it

will again return

I'll bet anyone

that it will!

Since I am

in charge

It will have

no choice

Than to be


To what I

have to say

That I have

already made

Some changes

I have learned

My lessons

Must simply leave

Not welcome here


Everyday for me

Is always exciting

If I have already

made any plans

Am going out

Just as before

My writing will

be finished

long before

I closed that

door to go.

You see I made

it forbidden

For all others


The Most High


who Is the only

one to hold

The most important

Of those already

few means possible

To be even

remotely liable

of being able

to ruin what's


my exciting Day

I kid you not


It was my father

He was the one

Who said to me?

Son thinks very


Honor and shame

From no condition


Act well your


There all honor


This took me

A little while


I was only a child

But now I know

You must stop

Look well at all


Especially when

They are not

Even in your


It's a sickness

That some adopt


One that needs


And so it always puts


There to temp

You could be one

That’s looking

For some excuses

Let in be known

That excuses

Are things that

Certain people

Tend to say!

Know you this day

That everything

In life

Will in every



Lead to another.

For you

That should be

What’s up with today!

      I wrote this over, corrected some errors.

      Thank you brethren Frank. What's up with today! I had to go out yesterday, to be meaningful to me. It tells of the days when you don't exercise the discipline true believers needs to, so you allow the devil to possess your soul, you are correct but here it the manner it was written.

      Honor and shame

      From no condition


      Act well your


      Invoke you most loved parents if you have to , but don't give that power to mere everyday mortals, they will discourage and hurt you eventually. See the rate of divorce between loving husbands and wives till death do us part!I see through people using simplicity, but that's my special gift.

      Stay strong.

      No writers block, or no can't do, or can't find. When this is your craft and an integral part of your life, life rewards you with things to write about.

      Everyday the temptation is there, but it waits and waits for you to show the weakness it lives on and then it pounces.

      So I have developed ways to avoid all these weaknesses, over the years, and yesterday was proof so I wrote about it.

      Always remember this it's your road and you must walk it regardless of what anyone says, or else your fuel is temporary.

      You need to create your own fuel.

      mrslagibb , here is my humble instructions for you it is based on what my mom had told me as a child. First I must say great to see you. Just this minute you entered my mind, and I started saying to myself , well now to everyone, I said should I follow my my mind, go ahead and do what I normally would do in situations like these?

      But my belief never fails and there you are.

      I am out of words ! who feels it knows it, because it happens every time to me. It's a great feeling.

      Give Thanks.

      Thanks Caroline always a great pleasure seeing you. The idea is to put excuses where they belong and that's in the junk pile.

      And even in a better place , turned into a hub , there is always something positive to do , same as there is always something negative to do . Take your pick!

      Have a great day dear lady.
