Writer, Writer Where Is My Writer ?


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

Robert Sacchi We are still having rain every day. Today light showers and cloudy. The weather has been in the 50s and by now it usually is in the 60s and 70s. I enjoy when it rains. I feel more relaxed and carefree. I hope your Sunday is going well. Thank you for all your kind thoughtfulness.

Robert Sacchi on May 03, 2019:

We are having thunderstorms right now. All is going reasonably well here.

DREAM ON (author) on May 02, 2019:

Robert Sacchi For the next few days more rain. It is amazing how rain makes you sleepy. Catching up on some needed rest. Friday is just a half hour away and the end of the work week for so many. I work weekends and that is when I am busiest at work. So I look forward to the beginning of the week where it is traditionally slower. Thank you for reading and hope things are looking up for you.

Robert Sacchi on May 02, 2019:

Thank you. One thing about posting articles is to expect a lack of responses. Oddly I've found little correlation between the number of hits I get and the comments I receive. Have a wonderful weekend.

DREAM ON (author) on May 01, 2019:

Robert Sacchi Here it is Thursday already and three days have slipped by. I have been doing some reading and relaxing with friends. Time away from writing and yard work. It's been raining every day so there is not much I could do outside anyway. I want to thank you for all your responses and your constant support. I try to add something special to each comment so it is not the same routine thank you. I am trying to learn more by waiting on certain comments and let them resonate inside of me. Trying to bring more focus on any subject. Sometimes I still come up with just a wonderful thank you. I feel so connected to everyone it is hard to give thanks to one person and not give a response to someone else. There are many times I have no comments on my hubs so seeing just one comment is so enlightening. I am thrilled with changes that happen gradual and others that happen suddenly. I don't see all the changes to after they have happened. So it can be days after that I reflect on something that happened weeks before. Happy Thursday and may it be a little bit more exciting and loving than the day before.

Robert Sacchi on April 29, 2019:

Thank you and have a good week.

DREAM ON (author) on April 29, 2019:

Robert Sacchi I find if we stay organized and plan ahead we get more done in less time. There are says where even the best of plans go out the window. So I have learned to be more flexible and roll with the punches. I always am interested in what other people feel and think. That gives me more insight and knowledge to help me in my decision- making process. Thank you for all your help and support through all my hubs. Wishing you a super Monday.

Robert Sacchi on April 28, 2019:

Yes, time is the unbeatable nemesis.

DREAM ON (author) on April 28, 2019:

Robert Sacchi Every year we have many leaves from oak and elm trees. Most people bag them up and get rid of them at the dump. Where they go in a compost pile and the town or city after years uses that compost for other things. The leaves become a problem if left unraked. I bought a mulching lawn mower two years ago that mulches the leaves really fine (speeding up the process for composting) Every eight bags of leaves turns into one bag of mulched leaves. I have been thinking about a way if you could speed up the process of composting the leaves quicker and put them to good use faster. I have done some reading online that leaves are a good additive but by themselves not the greatest for compost. So I have more thinking to do and experimenting to do. Some people pay for the leaves to be raked and to be taken away. There is money to be made if you can do it right. It takes time to learn and study more about mulching and composting. That is one of my projects I am working on. I am happy that you have things under control and are doing good. Sometimes I run out of time and have to squeeze in a little here or there. Life is exciting and I try to put my time to it's best use. Either when I am writing, working, dreaming and creating or just having fun. Thank you so much for reading and caring. Have a beautiful Sunday.

Robert Sacchi on April 27, 2019:

No, as far as the house goes we are in maintenance mode. We are all well here.

DREAM ON (author) on April 27, 2019:

Robert Sacchi I painted the wood and thought it would be o.k. The wood they seem to hide inside was the pressed wood. I have been slowly taking it apart and spraying the ants as I see them. They are the big carpenter ants. They move fast. We have had rain and that put a halt on everything.I have been working on a few other projects that might work. I always come up with ideas and I try to create something new that hasn't been done before.I think it is important to know about nature and learn at the same time. I am curious about the world we live in and at the same time busy with work and day to day activities. I hope you are well. Thank you for reading and sharing. Have you started any new projects yourself?

Robert Sacchi on April 25, 2019:

Wood and water isn't a good combination.

DREAM ON (author) on April 25, 2019:

Robert Sacchi I have to repair more screens this year I will let you know how it goes. I was adding mulch around my house when I took a closer look at a wishing well l I had in the front yard. As I pulled off a rotted piece of wood I uncovered black ants. Now I am ripping it all apart and trying to kill the ants at the same time. A challenge I didn't want. Wood looks nice but it can cause lots of problems when it gets old. I am very blessed to have a good job for so long. It gives me the stability to do a lot of different things. I am always looking to enjoy my life with any or all the time I have left. I turn to write to release my thoughts and my dreams. Sharing another day of excitement. Happy morning to you.

Robert Sacchi on April 24, 2019:

The best is to give a wide space on all sides then after securing the screen cutting off the excess. Thirty-six years at the same job, great going.

DREAM ON (author) on April 24, 2019:

I could learn from your wife. I cut the screen short in a few places and when I pulled it in tight the cut part was close to the edge of the screen. It is nice to see a good team. My wife and I help each other often. It makes life so much easier. Maybe one day all four of us could work together. Four heads are better than one. I have always kept the same full-time job for the past 36 years but I am always looking to do things on the side. A few things I have tried haven't worked out the best either. So I write and I am always looking to the horizon. With the right idea many things can be possible. Thank you for reading.

Robert Sacchi on April 24, 2019:

They came out very good. My wife is very good at being exact. Her trick is, follow the directions.

DREAM ON (author) on April 24, 2019:

Robert Sacchi I started to fix my own window screens last year also. They didn't come out perfect. With practice, I will get better. It was a lot cheaper than getting my screens repaired for eight dollars a screen. I replaced my screen with a cat screen that my cat can't damage or claw through. How did your screens come out? I always love to hear other peoples challenges and accomplishments. The last few days we have had rain. So I got to catch up on my writings and my house chores. Thank you for sharing and caring. May today bring you wonderful happiness.

Robert Sacchi on April 19, 2019:

You're welcome. We have been doing some yardwork. Had some mishaps with the window screens so learning about how to rescreen windows.

DREAM ON (author) on April 18, 2019:

Robert Sacchi What a great tip. I will have to start to send you a few suggestions myself to return the favor. It is one of the greatest things one person can do for another. Lend a helping hand especially when it was by surprise. Thank you again. Hopefully, you will see a product of my own inspiration. Do you have any Spring cleaning to do? Have a wonderful Friday.

Robert Sacchi on April 18, 2019:

Yes, spring is that time of the year for yard cleaning. Of course that could also be an inspiration for a poem.

DREAM ON (author) on April 18, 2019:

Robert Sacchi I am very blessed while people are standing and sitting around me bored out of their minds, I get to tap into my brain cells and write about all those things that matter the most. I get to pick my own brain and if that doesn't work I get a big old ax pick. That usually does the trick. I love to share and I love those who share with me. I start with words then I always improve to greater and bigger things. it just takes time. I want to let you know I didn't forget you. Busy with yard clean up and trying to not lose my mind in work either. Thank you so much. Every comment touches one more great spot in my heart. That feeling carries me on through my days. I constantly thrive on motivation and other people that pick me up and help me along my way. Have a wonderful sleep. Dream Big.

Robert Sacchi on April 14, 2019:

That seems a very thurough self-check. I commend you.

DREAM ON (author) on April 13, 2019:

Robert Sacchi As much as I try to do good each day I always like to take a step back and see where other people are heading. Then I can reevaluate my thoughts from time to time and see if I am doing my best. Thank you for reading and sharing. Have one beautiful Sunday.

Robert Sacchi on April 11, 2019:

Thank you for the thought. I had a dental and an optical appointment.

DREAM ON (author) on April 11, 2019:

Robert Sacchi Everything in life has meaning. Sometimes it might take our whole life to appreciate and understand that meaning. I am planning to go outside and rake the leaves left over from last fall. What are your plans for the day? May today bring you more happiness and goodness. Thank you for reading and sharing.

Robert Sacchi on April 10, 2019:

Thank you and have a wonderful evening.

DREAM ON (author) on April 10, 2019:

Robert Sacchi I believe the more we work together to find a solution to a problem the sooner every problem can be solved. There are many problems in the world that require a combined effort from everyone not just one group or people with money and influence. Thank you so much for sharing new thoughts to make today better than tomorrow. Have an evening of delight.

Robert Sacchi on April 10, 2019:

That is an interesting way to approach your thoughts. Thank you for the kind wishes.

DREAM ON (author) on April 10, 2019:

Manatita44 I am honored that you visited my hub not only once but twice. Each time you teaching me different things. I listen and I am so grateful for your wonderful heart. It takes me a while to comment not because I don't want to it is because the day slips away before tackle all the important things I have to do. I always begin with love and end with love. Work is so important that it makes everything possible. Then taking care of our home and any chores that have to be done. I try to exercise and keep both my mind and body active. I have put everything on hold just so I can help out a friend. I have to learn to bob and weave like a great fighter. If I stick my neck out too far it will get chopped off. Thank you so much for sharing and caring. Have a wonderful day tomorrow and let peace guide us on many journeys together. Pleasant dreams my friend.

DREAM ON (author) on April 10, 2019:

Robert Sacchi Day after day I think of many thoughts. Many I can't do much with they need a lot of attention and development to make them work. They are my long term goals. I go to work and do my job well. My personal inspiration and dreams are far different than the physical world which I live. I keep trying to bring both worlds together. I go to bed at night and I pretend I cross a bridge that connects my day to day activities with the beautiful thoughts I think at night and in my daydreams. Sometimes the world changes faster than my mind so even if I complete my plans the no longer work because the environment and circumstances have changed. I learn to chuck it up to experience for the next best thing to come. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Life is wonderful. Living i is unbelievable. Dreaming about it is phenomenal. May your happiness be so warm and sweet that you think you ate a fresh slice of hot chocolate cake with ice cream. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my comments and then still find time to still respond.

manatita44 from london on April 09, 2019:

I would not hold anything against anyone. Loosely speaking, Ignorance killed Christ, but it is said that some of His last words were about forgiveness.

We are sojourners on an eternal journey, carving our path along the way. It is so hard to be focused when the sidewalks are full of 'beautiful flowers.' I often get tempted and I'm a student of the student of Love.

Your poetry is impactful and insightful! More reflective, more inward seeking. Praise be! Good to visit you again, my brother. I will leave you with one of my favourite sutras. But it must be interpreted from where you are. I'm not asking you to move faster than Grace:

"O bird of my Heart, fly on, fly on. Look not behind. Whatever the world gives, is useless, meaningless and utterly false." _ Sri Chinmoy


P.S I see that I visited before. Great!

Robert Sacchi on April 08, 2019:

That makes good sense. Thank you for posting.

DREAM ON (author) on April 08, 2019:

Robert Sacchi As we keep trying we keep learning. There are many approaches to life. One way might not be your way or mine. If we keep experiencing different things that work and let go of the things that don't we can truly find what we are looking for. The tough part is most of our journey has to be done alone. Only we really know what makes us happy. Thank you for reading and caring. Happy Monday.

Robert Sacchi on April 07, 2019:

Yes, a poem that covers writing, and I suppose other art forms. Thank you for posting. Well done.

DREAM ON (author) on July 01, 2018:

Ann Carr Each time I try to do something I hear two voices in my head. I have had so many negative influences in my life and fortunately I have found ways to overcome those sad thoughts with positive thoughts and continue to try to surround myself with anyone who is a good influence. Your comment continues pushing me in the right direction. Lifts me up when I am down. Thank you so much. Happy Sunday.

Ann Carr from SW England on July 01, 2018:

This is inspirational. It's true we shouldn't listen to those who think it can't be done. We can all do it if we have encouragement and if that's not from outside, then it comes from inside. The world would be a sadder place if we didn't have dreams, ambitions and strive for a goal. Just imagine the things which wouldn't exist - all those inventions, all that art, all the wonders of science.

You've lifted me to a higher level this morning, thank you.


DREAM ON (author) on November 14, 2017:

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.

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on November 12, 2017:

You are welcome Dream On.

DREAM ON (author) on November 11, 2017:

Shyron E Shenko The more we help each other out the less we find time to worry. Thank you for reading and taking the time to comment.

DREAM ON (author) on November 11, 2017:

Shyron E Shenko I love when people help each other out. I love and the compassion. Thank you for reading.Think of all things we can make happen. Have a wonderful day.

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on November 11, 2017:

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?

DREAM ON (author) on November 11, 2017:

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.

Gypsy Rose Lee from Daytona Beach, Florida on November 10, 2017:

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.

DREAM ON (author) on November 08, 2017:

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.

DREAM ON (author) on November 08, 2017:

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.

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on November 08, 2017:

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

manatita44 from london on November 08, 2017:

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.
