Writing What We Know

Updated on August 16, 2017

Takes Time And Dedication

It's harder than it looks

We may live our day out fully

Working from the crack of dawn to the wee hours into the night

Maybe instead we can relax and have a day of leisure

Even yet a day filled with both

With two much of one and not enough of the other

It is like playing around with tnt

We may sleep the day away

You are the one who decides

Each has it's purpose

Which ever you choose

Most likely when the day is done

It is over

Unless a wonderful or tragic event

It isn't recorded, documented or even for that matter remembered

One big blur in time

A foggy memory at best

One of thousands that seem so unimportant

Until we look a bit closer

Then we can see the microscopic effect each day has on the one previously

How every day is interrelated and builds for a better tomorrow

Wishful thinking on my part

I like to peel back the layers as if they were an onion

Crying in the beginning

Getting my emotions stirred up

Then realizing what we have in our hands

The option to write everything and anything about our day

Store it away for safe keeping or tell it to the world

I have done both and every combination known to man

Am I happy about what I write?


Do I wish I could do more?

Yes and no

If I spend to much time writing

It takes me away from today

Which is the most important of them all

It is special treat for me to see a day gone bye

Then recaptured in thoughts

I created and worked around in my head

As if it was a toy I had to fix

But couldn't

Where does that leave me now

Moving forward with great persistence and desire

To record as much as I can

Until the day I pass on

Like an old gallon of milk

Good for today and next week

No matter how good it is

One day it will expire

      Shannon Life is so beautiful, amazing, wild and yet so shocking. When we are left with a choice to love each day or dislike it. I choose to love it with more passion. It is not always easy and when the day is over I can look back and say I am glad I lived another day. Learning lessons along the way. Thank you for all your comments and support. Make today a good day.

      Gypsy Rose Lee Struggling just to put comments on my hubs. I am so glad I make the time but something has to give. I constantly pick and choose. Less sleep or skipping my next writing project. Watering the garden or mowing the lawn can wait. Leaving the dirty laundry for tomorrow. Off to work now. I will return tomorrow with a little more time than today. Thank you for reading and sharing. Thinking logically is very sound advice I also will try to follow. Ms. Dora I try to my best and there is always another word out there or another way of saying something. I am so happy you read and enjoy my poems. I am always trying to make them different in some way than my others. Reaching for a feeling I didn't understand before. One of the happiest feelings I experience is seeing a comment on one of my hubs. Thank you for sharing and caring. Ann Carr The more I write the more thoughts rise to the surface. It is interesting how that works. I don't know why I didn't see that or feel that way yesterday. I guess it is like aging we don't feel it all the time then there is a wrinkle where there never was one before. Other times I feel my knees pop and a shoulder muscle ache. They are physical reminders that I wish would go away but I think are here to stay. Thank you so much for reading and sharing my poems. My words roam around town even when I am sitting here on my bottom. I find it amazing that a thought can go far and wide with great speed. Where our bodies take time to lift and move. I blame it on gravity. That darn gravity. Have a beautiful day.

      Ah, yes so many things slip by before we know it. I keep telling myself that if I think logically all the time everything will be just fine.

      Probably most of your readers including me can identify with the feelings you share but are unable to express them as well as you do. Simple and deep at the same time. Good work.

      Yes, today is the most important but it is indeed made up of all those days before. You write what you feel like writing which is the best way of all; in that way it also comes across with more feeling, more depth, more emotion.

      I sometimes think I haven't enough time to write but then it pesters my brain until I've spilled it out on paper (the writing, that is, not my brain!). What a relief! Then I can start to live the moment for the rest of that day!

      You've started me on my own train of thought now! Good one!

      Sort of melancholy thoughts here, but always with your characteristics optimism. Life is flying by, always changing and somehow also staying the same.
