Turn What We Have To Do Into What We Want To Do

Updated on February 26, 2019

This Can Be The Trickiest Of Them All

The outcome can be amazing

Filled with dreams of happiness and deep satisfaction

This is not a one day or month project

This is a life long plan

To help create the world that we see

A lovely match to the world that we feel and believe

I start by closing my eyes

Feeling the energy all around me

The love that surrounds me

All the people that have come in and out of my life

Constantly guiding me to a new direction

It is up to me to see my true place

I am not in any hurry

Because the best things in life

Should never be rushed

They can be experienced in many different ways

I like to go on my own virtual reality tour

My mind is buckled in

My imagination is set free

To carry my whims and inspirations to new heights

When something doesn't work out

I am not ashamed or imbarrassed

I am always trying

To fix the current problem at hand

Turning it into another spectacular moment

Some days are easier than others

Then there are a few days that are almost impossible

It is a working progress

One that we can all be part of

If we only realize

We are the only one in our own way

So move those feet

When I just get out of the shower

After being darn right naked and clean

I am refreshed and ready to give it my all

I have had plenty of days

That I shy away

They are too tough to handle

When the time is right

I come back and give it my best fight

Most people don't realize

I always do more work behind the scenes

That you will never see

It helps me from every vantage point

So I can call the shots

Make the next move

On my terms

Finding who I am

Who I want to be

Wait and see who I become

We all have great potential

Do we apply ourselves or just skip over it

Can't you see we are in the end zone?

We have bases loaded and no outs

The ribbon is waiting to be broken

i can't help myself

Sharing my early morning yearnings

For everyone to rise

Now so relaxed and at ease

Knowing I don't just have three aces

But another ace in the hole

That changes everything

I use to fiddle when I got nervous

That bottled up energy

Ready to explode

Now I channel it in slowly

Giving it a real sweet purpose

Turning all this power into words

That pack the knock out punch

      Audrey Hunt I love comments. The best thing about comments is people go up and beyond to read something you wrote and tell you what it means to them personally. A connection is so sweet. In ways, I may never have imagined. When I see your work and your talent I think how wonderful it is to have such a gift. You have made so many people happy. You have inspired others to pursue their dreams. Music is such a beautiful part of life. I feel and understand the endless hours you had to put in to make your dream reality. It was not always easy and it took so much hard work. Only a handful out of so many people makes a living from the music business. So many people struggle with dreams that may never come true. Please keep me informed on the progress of your new book. I am excited about your journey. Thank you for reading and sharing your kindness. Have one special Thursday.

      Gypsy Rose Lee Words have so many different meanings. I use more common words that I have repeated many times in my life. Most of my writings deal with my emotional side of life and the feelings I feel. So I am not judging others just myself. I hope people can see right through me like a window and understand and share my thoughts. Trying to bring out a little more happiness where there once was a dark shadow. A little giggle when there was just silence. Thank you so much for reading and sharing each poem. Have one great day.

      Kathryn I am always unsure of what the outcome will be. I know if I try my best it has to be good enough. For many years I listened to so many other people who expect so much more from me and I realized they themselves weren't giving it their all. I had to stop listening to them and do my own thing. No matter how much it hurt. So why would someone push someone beyond what they are capable of and put that pressure on them for not being good enough? The reason maybe is they don't know how to compliment someone on trying their hardest because they were not taught that either. So they are only doing what they know. They didn't help me they did the opposite and they were my family and closest friends. Life is a learning process. I learn new things every day. Sometimes it takes me years to learn one lesson. I try my best to share my feelings good and bad. Hoping that someone out there may feel like I feel and need a pick me up or have also found a way to pat ourselves on the back when no one else does. What you and many hubbers have done is go out of your way to make me feel good. I try to thank you by writing more and continue to share. Thank you from my heart to yours. May your day start off rolling and go onto being the most fun you have had in a while.

      Words can be most powerful and words can say a lot. Whenever I write anything online I check it carefully to be sure that I am saying just what I want to say.

      It's taken me a lifetime to "see my true place" as mentioned in this thought-provoking poem. However, now that I think about it, I've been living my true place for a whole lot of years - sharing my musical knowledge and experiences with others. I guess motivating others to sing is what I'm mostly about - and I'm working on my first book which takes all the application I can muster up.

      Lots of wisdom in this poem, my friend!
