When Have We Had Enough

Updated on November 18, 2012

When It Is Time

There is no rhyme or reason

No solution that can be found

A situaton that does not get better

We have to let the day play out

It is not my choice and not my doing

We have to realize we don't have all the information to come to a proper decision

Not all the results are in

Like an election where the votes are still being cast and tallied

The term life is just to small to give us an accurate answer

So step back and think

We are not finished and the towel is not thrown in

This is only one round of a fight where we are knocked down

Get up get up

We have been here before and know what to do

We are older now and need to use a different strategy

We don't move as quick and don't have that zing in our punch

Our foot work isn't as fresh and quick

What we do have is years of experience and knowledge

Something only years of living can make

Now with that said we have to understand there is an answer to our prayers

One we did not recognize

So in our heart we know we have to let go

Not of all the good that we have enjoyed

Only the things that hold us back

The bad feelings that we can conjure up

Let it all go

A waste of time and energy

Now take that feeling and turn it around

Into something so positive everyone will notice

It will shake from under your feet

Open the heavens above

Blow with the wind

Be as silent as a lamb

All are one

We can enjoy and experience each emotion many times

For this is life

Life for the living

There is no sadness here

Only things to do and places to see

Open our eyes to a new wealth that shines in the dark

Does not have to be carried or saved

It is free as a bird that flies in any direction at any moment

Returning over and over again

If we listen we can hear music playing

By no man

It is beyond our comprehension at this time

So wonderful and yet troubling too

As we smile and walk away

Tomorrow is still another day

Where we continue on and find things we have still yet to learn

Now laughing as we realize everything in life does make sense

Off to get some sleep to refresh my body and soul

Of all the wonders that God beholds

      Joy56 I belong to a Protestant church but respect all faiths.I believe God is universal for everyone.Each religion changes slightly but with one general purpose to help all people live a better life.Once again I made the correction and I appreciate all your help.Have a great day.

      Dim Flaxenwick I often wonder how to take the bad and make it a tool to help me and other people build on life.Sharing dreams and constant thoughts is just one more way to help others instead of turning away.Now exhausted and one week already since mom has passed.Where does the time go?All I can say life is for the living and live it each and every day.Thanx for reading.

      shiningirisheyes I have said it before and I will say it again.It is you that make my writings special.If nobody reads them they are just a bunch of words on paper.They go know where and do nothing.They are better off thrown in a barrel and burned at least this way the paper they were on can be used as fuel for a fire.A purpose and then even in the darkest of days we see light.The light is from a spark from just words on paper.You have found a way into my heart.Touched by your love and kindness I thank you again for finding the time to read my stories and poems.I learn more from your comments than I learn from a whole stack of my writings.God Bless you and may each day be more exciting than the next.

      Dream On - I hope you realize the depth of faith you provide with your wonderful creations. I relate so well to so many lines in this creation. I've been knocked down very hard, as I am sure we all have. The choice of throwing in the towel just isn't on the table when loved ones need you to fight another day. And you are so correct - growing older and living through terrible losses and helpless situations makes us seasoned pros, as this is life and these will come our way again.

      Voting up and sharing and I thank you

      Sometimes the answer to our prayers

      Is God not granting us what we want.

      For it may not be what is good for us

      He isn't one to put out to flaunt.

      Those days you speak of are often for me

      I choose to let life almost lead .

      Some days we feel a victim to life's plan

      Be a survivor I tell myself, plant that seed.

      For without pain we won't know true love

      Without confusion we can't appreciate clarity.

      This silence you speak of is genius on your part

      Silence is golden, you might find some rarity.

      Too often we don't stop and think of what is

      This All are one idea is what life should strive to be.

      Humanity and peace and love and loyalty

      Faith, Hope, and happiness that start within me.

      You talk of being free as a bird and it started with you

      Tonight you were the bird with wisdom for all to hear.

      Will they be silent and listen to your words that are so loud

      Or talk over you instead, because they don't care for wisdom near.

      Your words are sparkling diamonds in the sky of whats to be

      A world of many challenges that can hinder or make us one.

      Thank you for bestowing this wisdom, at least passed on to me

      As the dark fades to light, maybe today I will actually see the sun.
