When We Forget Who We Are

Updated on January 13, 2011

Looking Into The Night

I see darkness but then I turn on the light

I wonder if I am going in the right direction ?

When I guide my thoughts along the beaches and watch life roll in

I feel so excited but then my energy starts to unravel

I feel like someone keeps pulling on my string

I started out a huge ball and now I am dwindling down to nothing

What can I do ?

Accept life and then rattle my brain

Because I am far from done

I just want to see what others would do

If they got lost in the woods for hours and had no sense of direction

Would they turn to nature to guide us out of this wonderful perdicament

Would they turn to an inner power of desire to see a change

No matter how insignificant it may be

One step in the right direction could lead to three

Then what once seemed hopeless and unbearable to think

Has changed to a possibility and all wonderful things are about to happen

Never close our mind to any signs of hope

Even if they are pointed the wrong way

Be patient and kind and give it some more time

Life has many riddles and rhymes

If we don't laugh at them we will be grey before our time

The power we can find is within our soul

It is beautiful and bold

Give it a chance to develop instead of thinking it would just evaporate at any moment

The pleasures of life are eternal

So why rush life

Each peice is more than just a painting or a statue

It is a work of art and is defined by the minds that shape it and watch it grow

The littlest flower can bloom many times before it's grand finale

Why do we forget what is so simple but so enjoyable for so many ?

Our bodies take the burdens of history and remind us we are not invincible

For the short stay why not make it better than it has to be

More creative so others can add instead of detract

The moment we have all been waiting for

Will come at last

Our memories and our energy will keep us flowing

So one day we can say

I didn't know where I was going exactly but when I get there I will bring many friends with me

So we can all see what life is really about and sending shock waves to the rest of the world

That life that we speak of is filled with so many  thoughts and conclusions

It is up to us to help others or to be dissillussioned by our own sadness

I choose to see some people smile every day or at least once in a while

      I think in my life I have everything I could ever want.Then one day much sooner than I think I see my world crumbling around me.The causes may be external but in time it can be internal.So I have to reach and find a way to make sure my ball doesn't completely disappear.Thank you for reading my thoughts and ideas.On to a new day and a happier thought.
