It's Not A Battle

Updated on September 27, 2019

I Have No Scars Of War

It is just another day

One so much like the day before

Changing so slightly

Keeping the same in demensions

What we do

Is all up to us

What we don't do

Is also up to us

Feelings are our guide to what is right and wrong

What happens when those feelings are mixed

Not clear cut

Not precise and accurate like a laser

Do we stop

Rethink our position

Then again we could barrel on through

Like a bull in a china shop

I borrowed that line from my mother

Who borrrowed that line from someone else

Where it came from

Who really knows?

I think it means

I would go in and wreck the place

Looking for something

That I probably will never find anyway

I am going in looking

It is a good start

My cat Charolotte is sound asleep by my side

She is the one who woke me

Inspired me to get up at 5 in the morning

Now it is 7:45

I wrote a few comments

That seems like a lot of time just for comments

Time slips away when you are in the moment

Nothing else seems to matter

It rained yesterday and last night

So the ground is all wet

No yard work today

I leave for work in 4 short hours

I did get some sleep

I wonder if 4 hours is enough

4 has come up a lot

Maybe it means something

The town is repaving our street

The crew is one house over

Today is the day

Well, once again random thoughts come to mind

That will once lead me on a merry chase

To find more meaning

To find a great source of energy and kindness

That doesn't evaporate like water

That only builds and builds

Until one day we see the difference

      Gypsy Rose Lee It is amazing how many times we can enjoy the activities of animals even if they do the same thing over and over again. I see you have quite the spot in the neighborhood. I hope you can put some of those cat adventures on paper. Thank you so much for reading and sharing your days with me. My wife and I sleep through our alarm clock all the time. We set it for 7:30 sometimes it's nine o'clock before we even hear it. Luckily we don't have to be up to about 10:00. Have a lovely sleep. By morning you will be ready to go, go, go.

      I have discovered that my mind becomes active in the early hours of the morning and if I cannot quiet my thoughts I might as well get up because if I fight it and fall asleep again I do not get up before 11 and then I cannot get everything done that I had planned. So my solution at least for a while is to put on the alarm on my cell phone to ring at 8 AM and me to get up and begin the day. Actually the most amusing scenes come in the morning. At night there is a gathering of 3 outside cats and an opossum on my front porch looking for food. I put out leftovers and in the morning the bowls are empty and one cat is sleeping by them on the top step looking like Henry the 8th overate

      Tori Leumas It is my day and I try to give the best explanation possible with the emotions I have tied into each decision I make. I feel uneasy in the morning and as the day progresses I feel a little better. There is no great change from one day to the next but over time I will move forward to a new place. Hopefully, inspiring me to enjoy more of life and all that is secretly woven in the binding of every book that was ever written. Each talking about life in the writers own perspective. So we may understand each other and appreciate all human beings. Thank you for reading my poem and sharing your spirit and good thoughts. I hope you have a very beautiful weekend.

      Wow, this is interesting. It seems like an organized ramble of thoughts. Cool idea for a poem.
