I Am Here To Do What I Have Always Done

Author:

Carry On

It might not meet up to anyone else's standards

It sure is above and beyond my expectations

I think of thoughts that other people don't think

Why isn't their peace in the world?

Isn't there an easier way?

Give it some time your thoughts might change?

What if?

Wouldn't it be great if we could all make one person smile?

Even better all at the same time?

Our life is our one chance of getting it right

We don't have any do-overs

Why can't we all get along?

If I could only see it your way and you can see it my way?

There has to be a simple solution

We just didn't find it yet

If I could only remember what I dreamed

Then I would never have left my bed

Give me a nice hot shower

The world I see feels so much better

These are just a few of my wild thoughts I think each day

I go to work

I come home and love my wife

Spend time with our cat Charlotte

Love to talk to my friends

Write one more poem

That describes not only the way I feel

The way life is

At least through my set of eyes

There are many things I will never understand

There are many things I wish could be different

Life is the way life turned out

It is not good or bad

Just a series of events

That we live through

That brings us to a different spot

So that we can appreciate what we have

What we don't have

Somewhere out there is

What everyone wants

Chrish Canosa I do the same thing. Wondering what other people are thinking while they are writing. Off to work and holding deep thoughts for another day. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. I hope your Easter was filled with love and fun.

Chrish Canosa from Manila Philippines on April 04, 2021:

If I'm going to try it, maybe I go with carrots hahaha. That sounds fun Sir dreamon, I was trying to imagined the scenery while reading like I always do lol. I'll absolutely do that po!!!! Thank you and blessings to you all

Chrish Canosa I sit here and type when I should have been asleep two hours ago. Eating raw string beans is my thing. Crunching them between my teeth and chewing them up. I have to get up early at 6:30 the time is 12:30 I threw some towels in to dry. I enjoy wrapping myself up in not one but three or more warm towels and sit back in type. It's like me in a sauna with a laptop writing away. The best of two worlds. You will have to try it. Tell me what you think?Comfort and cozy of a snuggly blanket. I think I am creative and love to show other people how to stretch their I M A G I N A T I O N and create not just for you but for the world. So everyone can benefit. I have to crawl into bed or I won't have the energy to climb out of bed. Thank you so much for every good feeling I have, to make them even better. You should surprise your mom and dad with breakfast. When asked why? Just because, you think you they the best!!! Now that is a great idea to put into action. With the greatest return that no investment could ever top. Happy Saturday!

BRENDA ARLEDGE There are many times I feel things are going smooth and couldn't be better. Then other times I am trying to just make things work and nothing seems to come outright. So I keep on figuring a new approach. Thank you for reading and commenting. Have a great night.

Chrish Canosa from Manila Philippines on March 22, 2021:

Awesome Sir Michael! Fathers are always reasonable hahaha.

Have fun working! I am more thankful Sir Dream On!!!!!!

I will keep those in mind always.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on March 22, 2021:

Womderful write.

I liked your comment about Balance..the butter.

It is true..we try to balance out each moment.

Sone days we get it right..or hope we do.

There's always so many questions lingering in my mind.

I doubt that it ever truly shuts off.

Take care.

DREAM ON (author) on March 22, 2021:

Chrish Canosa Every time you call me sir I feel like royalty. It's fine by me. My real name is Michael. My father used to say you can call me by any name just not late for supper. I have a lot to respond to but I have to go to work now. I wanted to thank you for all the beautiful replies and the wonderful conversations. I hope your day is going great. Best of all keep a positive attitude and your lovely personality.

Chrish Canosa from Manila Philippines on March 22, 2021:

Wow! You're awesome Sir Dream On !!!!!!!!!!!(please let me know if you're comfortable with " Sir " I just can't call the name specially the one that's older than me. It sounds so disrespectful, for me.) Okay here I go! I was laughing so hard while reading your reply. Like this one

" where I'm wading in the water, you dive right in " lol. We should wave a flag of blazing metaphors hahaha

Lots of thank you for all the lessons. Your words are truly appreciated and will always be remembered. I agree with - realist by day idealist by night. Our body is both negative and positive, like the universe personality

" Rainy days and Sunny days "

I hope it'll be an awesome day to you po. I couldn't thank you enough!

Have a wonderful day ahead!!!

Thanks a lot for the love and hugs! I felt the squeeze!!!!!!!!!!

(I speak 4 languages po, 3types from my country which is Tagalog, Mandaya, Bisaya.) And fine English. I just thought I need to answer the question mark hahaha

Ann Carr I am not trying to butter you up but I appreciate the knowledge and insight that only age brings people. A young student may be smart but they don't have life knowledge or street smarts. The ways of the world. Things can look one way but really be a whole different way. Our perception of things can change as our mind develops or it can stay the same if we are stuck in the same mindset. Interesting as it is. We can learn to change our views even how old they are. If we don't help someone then is the effort and time put forward real-time well spent. Time is so valuable. It is underappreciated and never understood. Thank you so much for another refreshing comment. I hope your weekend is just as wonderful.

Ann Carr from SW England on March 20, 2021:

Thank you. I'll look out for that butter!

I hope your weekend is wonderful!

Ann

DREAM ON (author) on March 20, 2021:

Ann Carr You are so right. I would love to blame HubPages for everything but the responsibility really falls on me. I like the idea. I better balance would work. There is a butter that is made called Balance. So I have to buy some. Then I will put a little balance in my day every day. I wish life was that easy. It is a working progress. I always appreciate your comments. They give me a little more insight into what I have missed. I do love to write. I do love to read. Life will not wait. Thank you for writing a beautiful response. Welcome, Saturday. Hope your day is filled with plenty of water and all the great activities anyone could ever hope for.

Ann Carr from SW England on March 20, 2021:

Just keep on writing, don't worry about the regularity of it! I don't! It just depends on how we can balance the day. Life has to be attended to. I think it's HP's changes that have messed up finding hubs, posting comments etc, so they take any blame for all the stress involved!

DREAM ON (author) on March 20, 2021:

Chrish Canosa I went to go to post comments and nothing happened. I am really having a bad day. So here I go to post again. I forgot what I said the first time. it went something like this. You called me a realist. I had to look it up. I use to think of myself as an idealist. Now maybe I am a realist by day and idealist by night. I have some kind of split personality. I like to think there are two sides to everyone. I hope mine is good on one side and a little better on the other. With lots of room for improvement. Thank you for waiting thirteen days. I use to think I could do all I put my mind too. Now I don't think my mind is on the same page. Love to all your whole family and especially to you who keeps me happy even on my sadest days.

DREAM ON (author) on March 20, 2021:

Ann Carr I think we should have a hug-fest. Find everyone in our lives that means the world to us and say I am here for a hug. They would probably lock me up. So I have to keep that between us. Hugs are so special. When they come and they are underestimated in my opinion.Hug the world and nobody is ever lonely. I have posted some comments and lost others. I am not sure if I am coming or going. Maybe I am dreaming. That's it. Life is one big dream. Thank you for being in my dreams. Have a wonderful day. Enjoy a nice lunch.

DREAM ON (author) on March 20, 2021:

Chrish Canosa I think I am seeing double. I wrote a comment and it never made it. I might just be losing my sense of reality. I pinched my cheek boy did that hurt. Thirteen days ago you left this wonderful message and I am here trying to give it justice. My whole family sends lots and lots of love. Thank you for reading and best of all finding sense in almost everything I write. Sometimes I even get lost. Then I close my eyes and start fresh. Like today is the first day of the rest of my life. Loving and enjoying all that is about to come. Before it happens. When it does come I can enjoy it once again.

DREAM ON (author) on March 20, 2021:

Chrish Canosa I am curious how many languages do you speak? I only know English and gibberish. I express my thoughts as clearly as I know and you pick up on where I fall short. You keep giving me some of the nicest comments. My head is so big I can't lift it off the bed. It must have been filled with helium. Because all I do is float around. Soon I run out and down to earth I come once again. You know so much. I think I should be following you instead of you following me. Thank you so much for all that you do. Thirteen days later. Thirteen is my lucky number. I was born on September 13, a long time ago. So it's an extra special day to me. Another day another story. Have a lovely morning.

DREAM ON (author) on March 20, 2021:

Ann Carr Knowing that everyone is safe is the important thing. I am glad you got one shot and more shots are coming soon. I love your updates they keep me in tune with so many thoughts. I hope you had fun gardening. I love to get all muddy and down and dirty. Something about being outside. You comment so well. I want to hire you as a professional commenter? I don't think I could pay you enough. Whatever the going rate is you can double it. As for all the great thoughts, we can create. Let's keep them coming. Thirteen days later and I am making my rounds. As for corrections I am able to catch some then the rest you have to close one eye. Then I only have half as many. Thank you so much for all your never-ending support.

DREAM ON (author) on March 20, 2021:

Chrish Canosa It has been thirteen days and now I am finding time to respond. My mind has been on cloud nine. Usually, I can reel it in. This time it bounced around and said heck no. I am having fun leave me alone. I appreciate all your comments. You keep me smiling long after I leave this page. With the life lessons I also have life's pitfalls. Luckily, I filled the bottom with lots of pillows. So when I fall and sometimes I fall hard I am safe. If I can leave extra pillows. More pillows for everyone else. We all can be safe. Life is filled with the unexpected and I don't know where to put it. I do know seeing your enthusiasm and love I am overjoyed!!!!!!! No I didn't fall asleep with my hand on the exclamation point. I could go on. Then you would think I am rambling. I have so many ups that really set me on a collision course to love. The negatives come and go. They are never here to stay. You deserve many hugs. You are so smart and well beyond your years. I will keep trying to touch upon things we haven't covered yet. My fur baby Charlotte sends lots and lots of kisses. My wife thanks you for keeping me busy and hearing my thoughts when I am way out there. My wife has her limits. I stretch those every day. Most of all make today not just a good day. Make one even better than that the best one you have had all year.

Chrish Canosa from Manila Philippines on March 06, 2021:

You're an awesome realist! For me it's like when you don't know what's important to you, you will never be happy with what you have .

Ann Carr from SW England on March 06, 2021:

Some of us know when our second vaccine is, otherwise we wait for a call but we know it's between 10-12 weeks, which is fine. England is doing a fantastic job with vaccines and is so well organised. We're lucky to be in one of the leading countries in medicine and research and our NHS (national health service) are wonderful. I feel just a little more confident about going out now but I keep away from people and get annoyed when they come too close, even just walking along by the sea which has tons of space.

I find writing makes one collect one's thoughts before saying anything, or we can read before we send (just as well as I make lots of typos!). We can make sure nothing will offend and express ourselves in the best way to convey what we feel.

All our children are back in school this Monday coming so I'm hoping numbers don't increase again - a little too soon I feel; we'll see.

I shall be happy when I can hug the family again. That's my greatest sorrow right now but I know they are safe so that's the main thing.

Just after lunch now so I'm going to do a little gardening.

Enjoy your Saturday!

Ann

Chrish Canosa from Manila Philippines on March 06, 2021:

" If I could only see it your way and you can see it my way " I always thought of this too. I missed a lot from you po! Specially those life lessons include in every lines which I always love.

So good to read again from you! Hi to your fur baby and to your beautiful wife, I'm sending lots of love!!!

DREAM ON (author) on March 06, 2021:

Ann Carr It sounds like a good day underway. It is great that you got your first vaccine. There is no better feeling in the world to know that the people that we love in this world are safe. When is your second vaccine? I heard all the horror stories of so many people waiting for hours just to get one. Things have not always gone smooth but the government is trying. I am amazed that we even have a vaccine so fast. My own family is healthy and happy. I am off to work and just wanted to thank you for giving me an update on things in England. Writing to some people maybe just to pass the time. To me, it is a connection between life and people we value the most. So many people are quick to talk on the phone and I think that is good. When you have to make the extra effort to write you have to think, gather your thoughts, and express yourself in different forms. That is only my opinion and view. I could be wrong. I have been wrong about a lot of things in my life this will not be the last time. Then again sometimes I get it right and then I am sitting on top of the world. I feel like a King for a day. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Happy Saturday.

DREAM ON (author) on March 05, 2021:

Mona Sabalones Gonzalez I am so happy to see your lovely comment. Today is going to be a long day. I have to work 12 to 9. I didn't pick this schedule but somehow it didn't matter. Managers have the right to change your schedule and we just have to accept it. There is something about writing that inspires and drives people to new joys. Where one story or poem pushes us to a direction we didn't see or knew even existed. At least in my mind. There is no better feeling than to see other people's ideas and understand how much they love something. A win/win for everyone. I like to think we all push our friends and peers to do better. In return we strive to much like them. Have a great day. Thank you for your visit.

Ann Carr from SW England on March 05, 2021:

Yes, it's 2pm here and I'm just wondering what I shall choose to sort out this afternoon! It's cloudy but bright with a little blue sky and a slight breeze, so a mild spring day. Also, I had my first vaccine yesterday, so I'm feeling good about that. Enjoy your day!

DREAM ON (author) on March 05, 2021:

Ann Carr It is great to see someone who thinks like me. All my English teachers disapproved. They thought I was a writing disaster. When I found out I could write poems and could use the creative style I always loved. I loved it even more. I was never really a structured person as much as I try. I use to think if they only could see into my brain they would know what I am trying to say. Now I just have to open my brain and take a peek. Ooops too much for one day. I will have to save that for my next writing. Thank you for all that you do. My comments sat on my computer screen for days. I kept on looking at them until I felt the right answers would come. Sometimes it takes longer than others. i can't explain it. I just don't want to leave a quick thank you. I want to dig into my gut. Bring out the deepest feelings and thoughts. Only to stir new feelings and emotions. Then off we go. Have a lovely morning. It is still morning here. You are probably half way through your day. (lol)

DREAM ON (author) on March 05, 2021:

BBYCGN You have started my day off in a great mood. There is nothing better than good words and lovely thoughts that keep us wanting more. I will try to bring out my best thoughts to keep you coming back for more. I am surprised how busy we can be and other times totally exhausted that we feel wiped out. Then the very next day feel alive and full of energy ready to tackle the world. Thank you for reading and caring. May your day be filled with wonderful surprises and so much joy.

DREAM ON (author) on March 05, 2021:

Louise Powles That is such a sweet compliment. Every day is something new. We don't always see it as such. I try to bring a new look into our old ways. Even when things go wrong and I thought they wouldn't I am totally surprised each and every time. I keep thinking today is going to be the best day of my life. Sometimes I come close and even think I have made it. Then other times I quickly sink to the bottom like a big old rock thrown in the deepest water. Luckily I know how to swim. Then off I go again. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Life is filled with so much great passion. If we all could just tap into it.

DREAM ON (author) on March 05, 2021:

BRENDA ARLEDGE I try to spend more time discovering all I have enjoyed before. Many of my past loves are still very exciting to me today. Now and then I will try something new. Work has been busy and my schedule has changed and it throws my days off completely. So I have no choice but to roll with the punches. Thank you so much for reading and sharing so many ideas. i hope your day is going swell.

Mona Sabalones Gonzalez from Philippines on February 28, 2021:

I agree with your sentiments totally, Dream On.

Ann Carr from SW England on February 28, 2021:

Yes, I agree that these are thoughts I often have, totally at random. How important they are, though! 'If we could all make someone smile, especially at the same time'... I love that! Accept the good things we have and try to make everything else better - who could ask for more?

I like how your thoughts pour out onto the page; there is a structure to this randomness!

Ann

Tamara Yancosky from Uninhabited Regions on February 27, 2021:

Excellent writing!

Louise Powles from Norfolk, England on February 27, 2021:

I always enjoy reading your poetry. Thankyou. :)

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on February 27, 2021:

Tis true...we all seem to desire that which we don't have, but I'm content with what I do have.

Take care.
