Dare To Do What Hasn't Been Done Before

Updated on October 20, 2017

To Be The First

Early attempts have met with little success

I hear the whistle blowing in my head

Try this

Do that

It might just work

I ask around and nobody has seen anything like it

I look on line and still come up with nothing

I google search everything on the subject

Thousands and thousands of answers

As I dig deeper I am also getting hooked

I can feel the urge grow even stronger

To come up with an idea

To develop the idea

That can help so many

Who to tell

What to do next

I listen ads that just try to sell you something

Buy something

I have a creative approach to an old problem

I have to be careful not to let the cat out of the bag

Give it away before I am ready

I will say this everyone can use this

It's affordable


The time has come for me to go farther

Squeezing in a little time in the day

To rewrite my thoughts

As many different ways possible

To express interest

To show dedication

If this works how can I apply what I have learned for other people

Am I on to something big ?

Is it only a dream ?

I am reading how companies develop their ideas

More reading

More learning

I can sit on this idea for years

I can make a working model

Using patience as a guide

This is so unlike my profession

So to document my progress for other people to see

To do a things to do list daily

To watch progress and failures become one of the same

How many people have come up with good ideas ?

That they wished they followed through

To only see a version of their idea come out years later

Why didn't they continue what they wanted to do ?

Afraid ?

You bet

Scared ?

What people will say ?

What will family and friends think ?

I can't do this alone

This idea takes a team of people

They all have to be interested

Be willing to put time in the idea

As little as ten minutes a day

The hard part is ???

Almost every day

This keeps the dream alive

No money involved just time

Time is money isn't it ?

So what are we talking about ?

Then maybe a year or two from now

We will see

It would be nice that we could all benefit from our efforts

What if it bombs ?

All this time wasted

Was it worth it ?

I am not so sure ?

Will it lead to something greater ?


Well for now just thinking out loud

Sharing my hidden thoughts

See what other feel or think

Testing the waters

The water looks calm now

If the wind picks up and the waves get high

A storm might be brewing

It might pass as quickly as it comes

I shared my idea with my wife

She said that's nice

I don't want nice

I want something I can sink my teeth into

An aha moment

I have seen the shark tank

Inventors sharing their ideas on t.v.

What if you have what it takes ?

You are not in debt or put your whole life on the line

Just trying to develop a dream

One that talks to you when you are sleeping

Looks at you straight in the eye when you are awake

What's your take ?

A poem of passion

That drives our mind wild

Like a first love

Breaks are heart from the start

Will we stay together forever

Only time will tell

      Gypsy Rose Lee Publishing your e-poems is awesome. Taking care of you is more important. Writings are something special to everyone who enjoys putting our thoughts out there for people to see and re-experience in their own way. The car might be beautiful and drive us everywhere. If you don't get regular oil changes and make sure you have good tires the car can easily break down even though on the outside you make it shine like new. Your work is special. Don't put your work above who you are and who you want to be. Take care of your body and look for groups for widows that are grieving a loss of a loved one. That might be a good starting point. We do not live each day of our life separately. Each day builds on the one before. Any building is only as good as it's foundation. A strong foundation can support a tall building. A weak foundation will crumble in time. All your hard work and energy would be put to better use thinking wisely not foolishly. I hope my suggestions bring up more questions. I am only a friend offering tips and by no means am I an expert on anything. I hope these thoughts give you the motivation for you to tap into your power and create the world you deserve. Sometimes moving can be a form of running away. Then when we get we thought we wanted to go we find out it is the same as before. It's not the place but us that has to change. Other times change is good as long as we are happy with who and what we are. It gives us a chance to grow on the inside and the outside. Thank you for reading and helping me understand things in my life too. When we write it is about us. What we feel. Nobody can tell us what our next thought would or should be. It is personal, emotional, exhausting, unbelievable, enlightening, remarkable and doesn't stop here. It is a mix of ingredients we have to cook and see what the outcome will be without knowing the recipe. Have fun and enjoy the great wonders in your life you never took time to see before. Thank you for visiting. Please come again and often.

      Time can do so much like wound and hear and bring us into a much better way of life. Here we are already at the end of October but now I am ready. My biggest project for November will be finally getting my poems together and self-publishing my book of e-poems. Just in time for Christmas, right?

      Nellieanna I can't thank you enough for thinking of me. I started watching him. He is very interesting. It is amazing how we can go our whole lives and not know or hear of so many inspirational people. I am always wondering about so many hubbers who we have met here on HubPages and then trying to find time in our day for our own daily activities. Some thing has to give. Working out a happy medium is a life long process. Sending you a world of good health and happiness.(shells)
