When We Mix The Old With The New

Updated on September 13, 2012

A Special Blend

Each day I open my eyes I see a fresh surprise

A whole new world I am about to embark on filled with so much promise

I know it is up to me to make it

I remember all my memories that carried me here to this wonderful day

Each step I took unsure of where I would end up

Scared yet cautious

Sometimes laxidasical

Never the less I took on my day with excitement and pleasure

After seeing the great rewards I was hooked

I continue to strive for more

Feeling an urge I can't resist

With more energy and resilience I press on

Finding disappointment and sadness

Not without extraordinary abundance of everything I love

So I go deeper into my life and my dreams

Seeking out others who will not quit under any circumstance

Finding more love and kindness in every corner

Fueling the fire that keeps burning to the end of our days

With great pleasure I pass on everything I know and have learned to you

So you can avoid so many mistakes and you can go farther and enjoy more

Isn't that what life is really about ?

Helping each other out

Off to dreamland where I take all my memories and gather them like friends

Regroup and take new action to make a new reality better than the old

One that lurks in the darkness and brings out the goodness that we can't see

To make this day one of many I share

Using ingenuity and creativity to blow you away

With old news and new knowledge have a fabulous day

      Dim Flaxenwick Did you know you are my cheerleader.When I am down I look to see what Dim Flaxenwick has posted in the past.I review my stories and I say it could of been better.Then I see a comment that you liked what I had said.You understoood what I was trying to express.I know if I listened to my mind I would of neve published one story.I use to be a perfectionist and want everything perfect.Well life is not perfect why should my writings be.People are not perfect why do I have to be.I don't and I never will be instead of my biggest flaw I turn it around to my biggest asset.I feel better and you have helped me continue to write.Everyone in our life is their for a reason.It is up to us to figure it out and find out why?Thanx so much and off to make a mistake and then write about it here today.

      Dim Flaxenwick I see that wonderful girl.She has never left.She just styled her hair different and got a new dress.Her beauty and charm go hand and hand as she walks with her special man arm and arm.Dance after dance they make the world come alive to me that is no surprise.So as this night ends and I bid farewell this special night remains etched in the moonlight for all to see.This is not magic this is lovely.

      This brought tears to my eyes. I remeber a girl, a young woman who could always be like you are here. Never quit.

      I´ve lost her for the most part, but sometimes with the help of your poetry I find her.

      Best to always look for the positive. Great way of looking at things and we should always be there for one another.

      kj force I wish someone had told me in the same way.I wonder where I would be now?Instead I had to learn from the good people and as well as the not so good.I had to decide for myself and learn from trial and error.Thanx so much and off to find some more good whereever it might be.Under a tree?In the air just flying by.I scratch my head under my nose would be great.All I have to do is wait and wait and wait.
