Sleep Oh Wonderful Sleep Take Me Away

Updated on July 1, 2018

You Help Give My Body The Strength To Carry On

I ask you here in plain sight

To help me in any way possible

There are many factors that also play a role

Food is necessary to pump my body with nutrition

Love is vital to all we do and all we think

God is love which is the same but also is so different

God is all we know and all we don't know

Through each day we discover

It is up to us to find our way

We can do absolutely nothing or we can follow the littlest spark

To a bright blue burning flame

Where we can live without shame

Take our own life and make it special

Not great what most people think

We are great

We are all so beautiful to start

All we have to do is appreciate our inner beauty

Most people look on the outside

Then think that is all there is

That is like having one crumb from the most delicious homemade apple pie

Then saying that this is all there is

You may follow me along and say I don't make sense

You may disagree on every point

I agree to disagree

Through the turmoil and frustration

I find the inner truth

The greatest love

It is easy to love someone when they love you back unconditionally

It is a whole another thing when we have to work at it

Fight for it (in a non violent manner}

Take a stand

Find the time to explain

Not for them

But for us

To see and feel the discomfort and turn it into pleasure

The most wonderful feeling on earth

In hopes that through our own misunderstandings and shortcomings

We may find hope

Through that hope

Find joy

Carry on

Not to change the world

But to change ourselves

To live the happiest of any life

      Gypsy Rose Lee You mention beautiful qualities that are so important in life. Being able to do what we want to because we push ourselves to our limits. Squeezing fresh orange juice out of oranges and enjoying all the wonderful rich taste. Going for all your dreams one day at a time. It takes time and it is always easier to do a little and enjoy along the way. Than working too much and not seeing each day but watching it zoom past. I am always working on the three qualities you mention all the time. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Have a beautiful night.

      The best way to be is to be self-determined, self=efficient and always your own best friend.

      Shannon Henry I totally understand it. I find out when the simplest ideas are expressed you never know what people will see. As adults I think and learn more we also close the doors to our imagination and all it's creative powers. I like nothing better than to see how you feel think and dream. That is the one reason I love poems. We can and should interpret them as they relate to our life. Because of what people share I see things I would have never known. Please feel free to add and discuss anything under the sun. There is no right way. Only a bunch of ways and we pick one that fits that moment. Thank you so much and have a good night. Come back soon.

      Nellieanna Hay It is easy to point the finger at all the wrong things in the world. It another thing to help and make small changes that make a difference. People all think one person has all the answers. From our past we know each of us hold a little bit of truth. We can see things from many different angles. If we work together we can solve so many more things than doing it alone. Everyone wants to take credit for all the good they have done. I think we all add to each others success and might claim it as our own. If we take a closer look where would we be if our predecessors didn't make the mistakes and achievements before us. We owe our success to everyone who helped us along in life. This is a wonderful thing. We are all part of something fabulous. Thank you for reading and sharing. I love seeing your profile picture it brightens my most darkest days. Have a great night.

      Yes, one's main assignment is to change within oneself what needs to be changed. In todays atmosphere of unrest and dissatisfaction, too often people seem to be trying to criticize and change others. But all improvement begins one person at a time and the only ones who can change those person ARE those persons themselves!

      I probably didn't read this exactly as you intended, but I can very much relate to it in my own way. Sometimes I find that misunderstandings are all too common, mostly because people are so complicated. No matter how we try to keep things simple, people think and process information according to their own perception and interpretation. Sometimes those little differences of interpretation then turn into deeper, more complicated misunderstandings that divide hearts. But we can and do learn from them. Even if it's only more about ourselves.

      Dream On, your poem makes perfect sense to me

      Where love is what I choose to see

      God given love
