Another Month And A Chance To Do More Than Before


Winter Coming Sooner Than You Think

Is this day any different than the ones we have lived?

Thinking and dreaming as if it was the only thing to do

Working because we have to

Living because we must survive

The weather constantly changing from nice to cold

The rain really knows how to put us on edge

Coming down harder with its partner the wind

Only to tease and torment many

Our bodies need sleep

There is no way around it

We must sleep daily or we can't even think straight

Our bodies also need food

To keep them functioning properly

Love is beautiful when we have it

Frustrating when you don't

People are so complicated

They are happy one minute

Cursing the next

To sit and write about life's experiences

That a few people may understand

Many won't care

My own freedom and personal drive for curiosity

Will keep me self motivated and always seeking more

If it is a short writing or page after page

I will always try to satisfy

My intense feeling of why we do what we do?

Dream On, you can comment on an article that is already moved to Letterpile or Discover if it appears on your HubPages feed.if it is your own you can click on author view or the pencil icon near the article’s name.

HubPages Weekly said today that comments would be restored on niche sites in the first half of 2021 so the is good news.

John Hansen I couldn't be happier to see a friendly comment from you. Growing up I use to love old westerns. Seeing you is like the calvary is coming to save the day. I wonder if all hubs can receive comments now? I have a tough time with all the changes here at HubPages. How do you manage to make so many comments when the hubs are moved to LetterPile? I will try to keep the ball rolling. Seeing the good in sometimes a tough situation is just a matter of where you stand. If the view is that bad sometimes we have to move back far enough that we have time to think and dream of something good to happen. It is not always easy and the more practice the more times things will work out. It is not any easier but we really didn't want life passed to us in a picnic basket and say eat and everything you wanted is wrapped up for lunch. Only in the movies. Thank you so much for all that you do. May today bring joy to yesterdays problems. Have a great Thursday.

Chitrangada Sharan December second already and the weather is either rain or getting colder. There is only so much time in a day. Between work and things around our home, it doesn't leave much free time. When I sit down to write life looks a little bit different. No matter what I try to do or what gets done I am back at it day after day. Hoping to make slight changes that will have a positive effect on my future. Sharing different thoughts and different feelings as they come and go. Listening to other people as they also experience something special and amazing. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. May we all come together and care just a little bit more about each other. Have a beautiful night. Wishing you and your family love and happiness.

Interesting thoughts expressed in your poem.

Yes, the new and the last month of the year 2020 has already started. We all are wishing the coming year to bring some good news, as far as the pandemic is concerned. Life goes on, and it has been so, in spite of the pandemic. The regular chores have to be done, besides the struggles, which keep coming and going.

Let’s hope that people have smooth lives in the coming days.

Thank you for sharing.

Dream On, although we have the same basic needs each day, every day is in fact unique. We can’t even predict confidently all that will happen tomorrow because there is always the chance of the unexpected.

I look forward to writing every day and sharing my thoughts and observations with others. Most of my writing is for my freelance customer requests, but I always look forward to what I can write for myself and publish on HubPages.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts through your poetry.
