There Is A Time And A Place For Everything


How I Search For Thee

I am not where I want to be

I am where I am supposed to be

Even though I look at each day as twenty-four hours

When will I understand it is time with no beginning and no end ?

We separate our days even further into months

Months we break down into years

What if our life is just one long day

Continuing without end

Where we get to see with our eyes

All the things we have created

Then dream to create more of the world we want

Our minds are our paintbrushes

We are all artists and each life that we live is our own canvas

To draw on and change

So when you go to sleep at night

Draw away and create the most wonderful things

The only limits are ones that you set

Be careful because whatever you create

It can be harmful and destructive

You would never create with that in mind

That is the way we learn

So the beauty of it all

When this happens

All we have to do

Is go back to the drawing board

Make the necessary changes

As simple as using spell check

Slowly changes will take place

What once was unpleasant and awful

Is now a picture of beauty and brilliance

A real work of art

There is one more thing

Every work of art

Even though it is our own

Special and unique

It is one that blends in with everyone's artwork

Like the most wonderful jigsaw puzzle ever created

That not only connects to another piece

But many pieces at different times

To create not one masterpiece but many

So as you open your eyes

Close them quickly again

Create my friend

A world we all can be so proud of

One that makes life worth living

Challenging and fulfilling

Dream the best dreams

You are always in control

Let your heart guide you

Not to a place that you are

To a place where you always wanted to be

Gypsy Rose Lee Life is short even though we think we have all the time in the world. I am sorry to hear about your old friend that passed away. I think your right all people that leave this world will meet again. I have read that they're still all around us guiding and helping us in life when we need it the most. They want us to enjoy our life and strive for more. We all are at different stages of spiritual growth and we have different things to accomplish and learn here on earth. I do believe our souls live on even long after our bodies are gone. Thank you for stopping in and sharing life and each of our own experiences so we can all understand and be happy. I really appreciate your wonderful share.

I struggle on but with determination to be in a better position when it comes to my writing real soon. I do get stumbling blocks along the way like a site where I was doing well and my articles were accepted and my pot was building and suddenly something went wrong and I cannot post anymore and they're trying to fix the issue but I hate when the happens. I found out why my holidays this year made me feel so strange. My first love my high school boyfriend who i kept up with on FB passed away in October 2019 and now has joined my last love in the great beyond. I hope they've bumped into one another.

Brenda Arledge I love sharing my thoughts and see how everyone else reacts. I hope it is a good and wholesome feeling. The one I feel when I write my poem. Sometimes I hit a nerve and other times I go way too deep. Like an aching tooth at the dentist. Before it is fixed we have to feel a little pain. It uncovers our true emotions hidden and covered. Sometimes I think it is better to leave alone and not cause any problems. Then I wonder if we are just hiding and not living. Another thought for another day. Thank you so much for caring and sharing. Life is so much better when we all work together. I hope your day is incredible. It is a little after six in the morning. So many thoughts are flowing. The sun is not up. Most of the world is a sleep. Once again crossing the line. When other people stop I want to begin.

Umesh Chandra Bhatt It took me a while to get back to you. I wanted to think about what you said. I made a few corrections on my poem. I used spell check to make it better. My English grammar isn't the best but sometimes I like the sound of the words I use and it is hard to find my errors. You see through all my mistakes and still found the bottom line. We all keep striving for something we want to make our life amazing. I have trouble understanding why that feeling doesn't last. All the emotions that we feel are something else. I think we would be so happy. Then the next thought pops in my head and I start the same cycle all over again. Maybe that is the way life is. So the more we know the more we can want. Not just for ourselves but for everyone in the world. That is a bigger piece of the pie that I can eat. So I have to have a small slice and enjoy that first. Thank you so much for reading and your support. Have a great day.

Dora Weithers There are so many times that things happen we did not expect. The results are amazing. Then there are things we plan that didn't work out. Only to find out later it all came out different and sometimes better than expected. So as we plan our day stay positive and optimistic. Good things happen when we try. Great things happen when we put all our days together. Thank you for reading and caring.

Kari Poulsen We have to take small steps and later it will be like we took a big walk. We can see it many ways. One step at a time or the whole distance we covered. Both our so beautiful. Thank you for reading and sharing. Have a good morning and a lovely day.

Kari Poulsen from Ohio on January 13, 2020:

I love this DREAM ON! Life may be one long day, that our minds subdivide. I truly believe that now is eternal. And that we can create whenever we wish.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on January 13, 2020:

"Life worth living / Challenging and fulfilling." Something to strive for. Keeps us motivated to get to the place we always wanted to be.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on January 12, 2020:


I like the idea if this one. To paint the most beautiful moments in our minds. Finding a life we have always wanted.

We are the artists and this is our life in one long day.

Great write.

Umesh Chandra Bhatt from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on January 12, 2020:

Good poem. We have to find a place where we want to be and that is the I think, punch line here. Well written. Thanks.
