Writer, Writer Where Is My Writer ?

Updated on November 8, 2017

There Comes A Time

When we find our place

It might not be where we think it would be

Even though it is gives us a deep satisfaction

That makes us feel so complete

We are headed in the wrong direction

Misconceptions and false beliefs

Take us through the never ending path

If we could only step back

See the trail along side our own

So close even though we never noticed it

Fill our mind with the dreams we once had

When we felt everything was possible

Stop listening to those people around you

Who tell you what they think is right

Why do we listen to them ?

Why don't we listen and trust ourselves ?

Could it be ?

That we were made to believe ?

At a very young age

Nothing comes easy

It is a lot harder than it looks

Don't even try

I have tried it and it doesn't work

Don't you believe me ?

Why would I lie ?

Your just wasting your time

This line of questions and answers

I have understood all my life

It has paralyzed me to the point I had to turn back

Thinking there was no where else to turn

if I only waited

I would see there are many more chances constantly rising

All I have to do is keep looking

So as I say good bye to my old ways

Patting them on the back because they got me this far

Now sending them on their way

I don't have all the answers

I do know I can find a way to go farther

Than anyone I know

Thanking all my family and friends

For all their efforts

The real truth is...

They didn't know any better

So don't hold it against them

Just move to a new height

That increases your inner strength

At the same time reveals the weakest link

May this day inspire you at the morning light

Cultivate your thoughts during the day

Open up a world of great wonder

Only to experience things for the first time

      Shyron E Shenko I have an older brother who is very negative and critical of everything in the world and especially the things I do. He believes in his heart and soul that pointing out the evil in people and all the bad in the world makes us aware and protects us from harm. I believe the opposite. I believe see the good in people and find and search out more good you will surround yourself with love. That love will carry you through life. That love will create enormous energy and power to do good and great things. Everyone will be happier. My brother constantly points out all the wrongs in the world and how mixed up and sad it is. he doesn't waste anytime pointing out all the innocent people that are always hurt. Who protects them? Seeing the miserable and awful doesn't make it any better. I believe the more we talk about it more than the good we give it unnecessary power. It can create more unhappiness. I don't think there is any quick answer. I would love your thoughts on this subject? Have a beautiful day and may the birds sing loud and clear.

      Gypsy, I say go for it, I am not much for horror stories, but would read yours I have a true horror story that is on going and will not end.

      Did your dad publish all his poems or do you have a collection of unpublished work of his that you could publish for him?

      Gypsy Rose Lee Your ideas our exciting and beautiful. To turn your works into an e-book you have to talk to other people who have done it. Take your time and start by separating which idea you want to do first. Each idea takes time and your full attention. Stay focused and please tell me which one you start with. I would love to see your progress. You can change your plans at anytime. Just remember you have to stay with one plan of action to get things done. If you do too much at once you might get overwhelmed and get nothing done. You can do anything you want as long as you put your mind to it. Thank you for reading and sharing.

      I call them the three I's inspiration, imagination and ingenuity. Getting ready to put my poems together. BTW I am a horror story fan and have a small group of stories some are online some not. Just for the fun of it do you think I should try and self-publish an e-book of them to see how it goes. I have also been writing about my dad but at the moment his story about his life and about him and his friends being immigrants and all remains unpublished. The sites I wrote on no longer exist. Should I also do his story he was Eriks Raisters a well-known Latvian poet and writer. Perhaps there are people also interested in this. As you can see I have a head full of all sorts of ideas.

      Manatita 44 Once again your thoughts go far beyond the space your words fill on my computer screen. I will practice meditation more often. It is so enlightening. It takes me awhile to get back to your comments. I often get pulled in more than one direction. I am learning we can learn to flow and with it things go smoother and easier. Thank you for all your support and help. I am going outside to do a little yard work but I wanted to appreciate your thoughts before I think more thoughts. Have a super enjoyable evening.

      Shyron E Shenko I am realizing how hurtful those thoughts really are. How great it is that you understood to overcome and rise above all those negative people and ideas. It takes me a lot longer. I have constant setbacks and conflict in what I should believe because how each person influenced me growing up. I believed because they were my teachers, family and friends. They knew better. They have lived longer and it gave them the right to be wiser and smarter than me. I put a lot of trust in these people. If what they say wasn't true then what else did I know about them may not be true. I begin to doubt all I know and have learned. Then I take a deep breath and enjoy the experience. I can use all that makes my life good and if it does not work or fit to improve my life then I have to cast it aside. Send it out with the next outgoing tide. There is no harm in learning. I appreciate everyone in my life a little more than before. In different ways. I don't put people on super hero status. Just as a good person who has done lovely things in their life and has taught other people to do the same. Thank you for reading and sharing. I am still enjoying your comment from another hub. Just because I finish my comment I want you to know many of your thoughts and comments run deep down into my life. They continue to affect me in my future writings. I often get back logged on just a few comments. I let them simmer in my mind for a few days. Sometimes they come to a complete boil. Having fun doesn't begin in the morning and end at the end of the day. It trickles on to the next day and into my life long after.

      Awesome hub Dream On, I have heard all those clichés for every one there is a positive one. If someone says you can't do this or that and you believe them and don't try then no you can't because you did not attempt it, but when someone tells me I can't do something then I try very hard to prove them wrong. "Can't never could do nothing!"

      Blessings my friend

      Inspirational thought and ideas. Yes, bro, just move to a new height. Meditation will help you.

      Spend 5-15 minutes every morning in the stillness of nature. Close your eyes while sitting; with slow silent breaths, focus on the psychic Heart in the middle of the chest. Try to feel peaceful.

      Imagine a lotus inside the Heart or a candle flame. Think of Light in a positive way...relax the shoulders, feet, eyes...allow the Higher energy to enter ...practice should be daily and as best as possible, at set times.

      Nice offering. Best wishes.
