The Next Thought Scares The Bejesus Out Of me
You get your neck cut off
How could you of known ?
There are no rules to follow
You take chances and one day
It either works or it doesn't
You have to be prepared to hear the worst
You have to have a tough skin
Like so many times before
I have heard it all
The conversation plays endlessly
Over and over in my head
It doesn't work!!!!
I told you so
You have to sit and listen to all their opinions
If it worked people would be doing it
When you come back with a good come back
Maybe they didn't think of it?
What rock did you crawl out from under
Most people are quick to tell you
I told you so
You really thought it would work??
Each with their own sarcastic tone and attitude
What were you thinking?
You weren't thinking?
If it works
The same people will say
You got lucky
Wait and see
You will fail
There is no support either way
You are on your own
Your time and energy
You are the boss
You are the worker
You are the rebel
The constant dreamer
If things go wrong
You are responsible
So each step you take
You are reminded by everyone
You will be the laughing stock of town
You will never be able to live it down
So most people chicken out
Quit before they start
Scared of their own shadow
From then on
They can never be happy
They are always holding back
Afraid what other people may think
I want to step past this and move forward
Support those who have a dream
That nobody else may see or understand
Even if you fail
I will be there to say
Let me help you
Wait and see
Building up there confidence and courage
Next time will be your best time

Gypsy Rose Lee It is one thing to write something and a whole nother story to comment on what you have written. You might think of thoughts when you write and what direction you want to go. Friends who read your story might see the whole story in a different light. You have to be careful not to upset people because that would not be right. You can explain your hub and also enjoy seeing it from someone else's view. There is no right or wrong. Just different that's all. Time will tell if things work in your favor. Then sometimes things are not meant to be. Thank you for reading and caring. You have only Sid and Elvis now. Did all the other cute and adorable kittens find different homes? I must have missed something. It takes me a while to play catch up. When I do I am so happy I did. Some days are rush-rush from morning to night. All writers have to be a little crazy to write for a living. The pressure the unknowing. Then in rare times the pleasure.
