In A Moment Of Silence

Updated on November 20, 2017

There Comes A Time

We need to consider

What we are experiencing at this very point in time

Our thoughts that we have expressed and stored in our brain

Both jousting for position

Constantly in a duel

I wonder who will take their rightful place

Will that person hold on to the power

Misuse, mislead and deceive

Will the power of suggestion surface

Like a frog in a near by pond

Surfacing quietly without making a sound

Doing what it always has done in the past

Depending on it's own natural ability

To survive and live on a daily basis

Are we products of our environment ?

Just what society says we are

Then again are we so much more ?

Sitting or standing viewing life from a microscope of time

Carefully examining our words that explain our actions

Can we break away from tradition

Is it an escape from a life we have always known ?

To be different

To be extraordinary

Isn't this our chance to stand out and show our unique talents and gifts

Are we boasting ?

Thinking we are so much more than we really are

How do we come across in the eyes of our peers?

A leader breaking in new ground

Helping other people

By guiding them in a good direction

Trying to save them the pain and the struggle

Without it will they have the same desire to succeed ?

Will they just cease all together ?

Going off into the woods

Never to be heard from ever again

      Isabella Allred There are so many feelings connected with so many thoughts that seem to power every moment. I take the good emotions and toss the bad. The bad may have come for a reason and I discuss them in further detail. I spend most of my day enjoying and finding new ways to encourage, inspire, develop the thoughts that make me feel good. Hoping that these same thoughts can be multiplied to make other people feel the same way or better. Thank you for finding me and sharing your time and wonderful comments.

      Kari Poulsen I wonder what how much information our mind does hold. Each day I start out to do good. Finding ways that I enjoy and that benefit other people. So it can be a two fold experience. I try to watch and listen and learn. Taking the memories from my past and adding to my actions of today. Bringing about changes that reflect the person I am and who I want to be. Life is always responding to every move. Enjoying life at each moment can be one of life's greatest challenges. Thank you for reading and sharing. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with many family and friends.

      It's hard, at times, to examine ourselves and why we think as we do. I think our thoughts are part what we have seen, part what we have heard or read and part our emotions.

      I love the imagery of the duel and jousting for position!

      manatita44 If we could look into our thoughts the ones we dismiss and the ones we follow. Where are they coming from and how does that direct us in the future. Thank you for reading and following on my journey. Have a great day.
