When The World Is Calling

Updated on September 29, 2010

All We Have To Do Is LIsten

Life gets crazier and crazier all the time

When you think you have figured it out

Think again

People who are your friends have their own agenda

When times get tough

Your life gets all messed up

You remain strong and loyal

To your beliefs no one seems to share

You have a gut feeling

That is all you can go on

You read so many books on how it is done

You are convinced you are on the right track

But some how from the pages to your life

Things that make sense slowly disappear from view

People don't do anything that you expect

They treat you like dirt when you are trying to explain to them

There is a way we both can make some money

Then we can become successful wait and see

All we need is a little time and lots of action

Slow in the beginning but I see great possibilities

You have to hang in there to the end

But all I see is people pulling up the stakes we have dug in to weather out the storm

They high tail it out of here

Quicker than a blink of an eye

Before even the rain has come

I am here left alone feeling the light rain dripping off my chin

There is no storm coming

I won't tell you


If you just come on back

You still won't listen with all that you have watched

You continue to tell me

I just got lucky and thats all there is to that

I here the same line over and over again

Good luck to you and I am not interested

So find someone else

I insist precious time is being wasted

I can't do this alone and why not give it a try

There is nothing to loose and so much to gain

You don't want to listen and I don't know why?

Things could of been different and God knows I have tried

I feel like William Tell and they all stand there with the apple on their heads

      Excellent, dear person. Just remember, "now" IS when one is living and even the cloudy nows have value. Soon enough they will clear up. The rainbow of experiences with feeling one's honest feelings is perhaps the greatest value in it all. All "ups" and no "downs" would be a static, lifeless state of being! Embrace them all in your own wondrous way! Hugs. . . .
