When The Good Life Is Still In Hiding

Updated on May 18, 2012

Watch As My Day Unfolds

There is no time like the present to change things that I don't like

If I can not control my outcome then why try ?

Because soon I will become closer to what I want and less of what I don't want

Each step I take may not seem important

Little changes happen consciously and subconsciously that change the way we act and think

So it is time to give it another try

No matter how many times I have failed and wanted to cry

My heart is in the right place and my dreams will never be erased

I have vision and with that vision comes my passion

It doesn't matter that other people can't see my dream

The world is vast enough for many dreams

So I struggle on with what I know and challange what I don't know

Pulling lint out of my pocket as if it was something special

Finding a feeling and letting it take over my mind,body and soul

I have found the secret to the Fountain Of Youth

To live life from the heart and give it all you got

No matter what obstacles are in my way

There will be a time I can make those road blocks and deadends disappear

I will find a way with every step I take to lift someone else up

Hold someone closer than before

This is the life I lead and share

No door will remain closed

No possibility empty

I quest for the universal truth

Where we can let our imaginations beem with satisfaction

Limitless and free

For all the world to see

      daisyflowrs He made his money doing what he loved best and became popular.So many people fall short of their dreams and goals in life.They just become another I wish I did...Soon even the ants get tired of hearing them.

      daisyflowrs As for people who have died from cancer past and present I will never understand why?But the truth is we all die.If it is from a car accident or heart attack,or sudden asthma attack.Our days are numbered.I can't say there is a special way I would like to go.Unfortunately all we can do is protect the ones we love and help those who are sick and not well.By raising money and aweness of the tradegies you mention. We are not God and we do not decide the future of everyone.From people who have died sacrificing their lives for the rights and freedoms so all nations can live like us.I support any effort that fights for equal rights and justice for all.Unfortunately change takes time.My love will always be for the families that lossed a loved one in such an aweful tradegy.The history of Aids traces back to man.It was not because of nature.Many man made problems stretch across the world.Until we invest and find new and better ways to take care of our environment and our precious life.As for someone being molested,raped or abused in any way we have laws to put those responsible behind bars so they will never do that again.All we can do is follow the laws of society and live in a civilized society.Think of how much worse life would be if we had no police and fair laws to serve justice.It takes young minds like your son to keep making changes to make everyones life better.Think back to history and see how far we have come?Some diseases and illnesses that use to kill we have made great advances and strides.Life is a learning process and as long as we keep improving we can find a solution.As for Stan he the man.I think he is friends with Adam Ant.So he just got a bad rep.People love to talk and exagerate.Thanx for reading and sharing so many thoughts.

      Dream On, your writings are great. My favorites are your so-called ramblings. How is Stan? It has been confirmed from inside sources that he is a leader of a very strong, elite militia.

      The world is beautiful and fair? I just finished doing Relay for Life for family and friends who have died and family and friends who have cancer and those who are in remission. Life is fair? Tell that to the kids and the parents that the kids were taken from by Kolby in Uganda and trained to fight. The world is beautiful? Ask the kids in Africa who have aids. Ask the families in parts of California who are sick due to emissions of fuel lingering in the air so heavily it is difficult to watch the sun rise and set. Life is fair? Ask that to the kids who get molested. Ask the teenagers who get raped. Ask the parents who are wondering if their child is still alive due to a kidnapping. Ask the teachers who get sexually assaulted by a student. I agree that parts of life are beautiful. Parts of life are fair. I know that every time I look at my son. With out him I don't see any reason to go on.

      daisyflowrs By now I hope you know me.I trust your honesty and your perception.I keep looking for one shot to show other people in my life the world we all live is like the Fourth of July where all kinds of loud noises are heard and every color in the world is shared.Many don't notice but others who really care see the world as beautiful and fair.Dee42 You have helped me even though I stand on the other side in the fog.So close yet so far.Only a kind person can see through my faults and bring out my strong points.I wish to thank you and off to sleep I go with inspiration within my grasp.I wait to see how long it will last.Thanx very much.

      secondimage Thanx and it means so much to me to make you smile.I hope you will enjoy and share a laugh and a good thought.For that makes life super exciting.In a hub community where the best in people is cherished and sought.TToombs08 This is my lucky day.To find more than one comment.The nice words you say have graced my life.All I can do is be thankful that you have found the time to read.cleaner3 You help me think that I can focus and become better.I do have many thoughts that seem powerful and earth shattering.Maybe they come through my window when I open it wide.I think I am learning to close the window and open the mini blinds instead so I can let a little light filter in.In time I may be able to open the window again or as least open the blinds up wider to let more sun in.Each ray is warm and refreshing.Thanx so much for all your help and much appreciated and respected.As I practice and make my thoughts draw a straight line from me to you time and time again.No more lost energy or wavy lines that others can't see.That is until I lose my way again and you help correct me.Then I will try harder to become better and learning is the only way I know.To everyone with a good warm feeling that inspires us to be better than we thought possible.I wish you a goodnight and a pleasant tomorrow.

      your work is getting better. i like this write . it has a sense of your true purpose. a lot better than your previous writes where you seem to ramble without any line of comprehension. try to stick to this writing style with a clear line of thought and you will see your work start to really shine. Great write here.

      P.s. please don't take this as criticism, just some friendly advice.
