I Have Been Mistaken

Updated on December 21, 2017

Nobody Is Really Sure

Egg on my face

There is something you should know

I believed and trusted the people I knew

Thinking the knowledge they have learned

Served them well and could help me too

Their traditional philosophy doesn't help me

They believe the world is gone to pot

The world is unable to come back or be saved

They have given up hope

I disagree

All I see is many causes

The friction just keeps building

Once you are convinced there is no alternative

You stop seeing the possibilities

Today is not the day

If you look at all the old fairy tales

There were challenges

Solutions come to light

I believe real life can also be like a classic

We all face struggles day to day

No matter what the odds

We search to find a way

People like to promote fear and anger

Looking at peoples backgrounds

Your own family history

Everything from religion to nationalities

We have to rise above the problems that we deal with

Concentrate on the things we have mastered

Through that expertise

We can and will persevere

Bringing together new ideas

Letting the past slide

Fixing what we can

Reshaping our current situation

To reflect our new position

Satisfaction of completing what we started

We all can do this

Together once again

We start with one successful day

Leading the way

To each better day

      Michael -Milec For years we are taught to listen and do what you are told. Then when we get older as we do certain things we are further instructed to do them more specifically. To the finest details. We realize we can do it differently. Our own way. Which might be quicker, faster and better. Soon we study closely some of our rituals, beliefs and routines and wonder to continue or change. Life is full of experiences good and bad. I think it is how we accept each experience and find a way to improve ourselves no matter how difficult it may seem. Showing love towards our friends, neighbors and family in the process. Thank you for all your comments and support. Have a wonderful afternoon.

      Sounds familiar, and we all been there: facing "ouch's" of life, learning new hard lesson and move on. Just recently I had to repose on my FB, just to regain the inner peace (again)- "One of the hardest things you will ever have to do, my dear, is to grieve the loss of a person who is still alive..."

      Be of good cheer my friend, live enthusiastically.
