Up Early And Telling Everyone Who Will Listen Something Special


It Is A Lovely Day In Every Possible Way

I don't really know you

You really don't know me

It is here where we get to share

I get to talk and you can listen

You get to think

You get to decide

If what I am writing is worth your time?

Then you could choose to leave

I would hope that you would read on

I write because my mind tells me to

What is my motive?

To express my thoughts in a new way

To share my deepest and most wonderful feelings with the world

How is that done?

In many forms

In writing it can be one special word that triggers a connection to your past

I have one chance

If I bore you or you suddenly lose interest

I am done!

Over done like a steak overcooked

You can't go back

At anytime you can cut me off

You can drop me like a hot potato in your hands

So I look at my life and see what motivates me

I love action

So the best way I can describe action on paper is through the use of action words

These words will draw you in

Some people are thinking like a snake

I am thinking more like an artist

We are about to embark on a new journey

If I was a cartoon

I could reach you quickly with a Boom!

Then follow up with a Bang!

Now that I am not

I have to go stronger

Hit you like a fighter in the ring

Come at you fierce and relentless

Not giving you time to think or breathe

You are amazing!

You are special!

I only exist because you make it possible!

I need you!

This day is the first day of the rest of your life

How many times have you heard that line?

Make it count!

Make it your best day ever!

I am not telling you anything new

I am just reassuring what you already know

Go out there and kick butt!

Show the people you love that you care!

You are now thinking who are you to tell me what to do?

I have no business

So you do it your way

In any way you see fit

Those people that have done you wrong

Push them in the back of your mind

To fix at another time

They are not out of your life

Just not as important as you right now

I am talking about you

The person that has the potential to do whatever they want!

Now your thinking how does he know this ?

Because it is just a feeling

Like a mothers intuition

Now your thinking what do I know that you don't know?

The truth is nothing

What I am doing is saying what you are thinking

Before you think it

I am fast on my feet

Dodging your every bullet

How is that so ?

Because I just told you so

I am trying my best to get in your head before you get into mine

We all have to make a living

Finding a job to pay the bills

Survive and I hope do so much more

Love each other with our minds

Long before our bodies

So when you go off and do it is whatever you were going to do

Do it with style and grace!

With a passion so strong!

You make other peoples eyes weep

Can you do that ?

Then why are you still sitting here?


Go out and do it!

Verlie Burroughs Each day is a new day. One more time to get it right. If we are not happy with what we have done change it. Changes don't come easy. They require a lot of patience. if your day is wonderful and beautiful then it is very smart to try to duplicate that so we can repeat the process as many times as possible. I like to think of a basketball player that makes a perfect shot. The ball goes in. Swoosh!! From a long distance away and a very hard angle. What are the chances? Then what are the chances we can repeat it as often as we want? It takes practice. Hours and hours. Are you willing to put in the practice to get the shot that is so unique? Are there other shots that you shoot well that you also want to practice? With the right practice, there are many shots you can be good at. Then there are some shots that are not your cup of tea. We move forward and ahead. Fixing what we can and enjoying what we have. Thank you so much for your comment. It is so nice to share one more piece of good in the world.

Tim Truzy There is no greater joy for me than to see someone else like something I created from my mind. That didn't cost any money. I have been given the chance to create something different and special. It was my thought to reach people through feelings and emotions by use of words. That so many great writers do so beautifully. I have to really focus and concentrate. Think in my mind of what I would want to hear and try my best to make it appear. Then also remember people don't think alike so they may not be interested at all. i will never know unless I take a chance and a risk and put myself out there. Each time hanging on the edge like a rock climber carefully planning my next move. Thank you so much for your lovely complements.I will keep trying to inspire and bring new laughter to old joys. Have one incredible morning.

Gypsy Rose Lee I constantly change my plans due to weather conditions. I have to leave early for work if we have snow or icy conditions. Sometimes I have to be dropped off at work in the pouring rain. On the hot days I have to dress light and the cold winter days I have to make sure I have gloves and a hat. So I know only to well what it feels like to run out of time. Wishing you great weather that will inspire and motivate you to do all the things that make you happy. Thank you so much for reading so many of my hubs.

Devika Primic Every day I learn so many things. Most people I meet are beautiful and wonderful in the way they think and care. There are other people in the world that I stay away from that only want to do harm and cause destruction or pain. That is not the way I want to live my life. I know each day I live is one more chance to appreciate all the beauty in the world. Thank you for giving me the chance to bring one more smile. Have an amazing day.

The lessons we learn daily shows us our spirits and makes us feel powerful. Strong words from you definitely true.

Gypsy Rose Lee from Daytona Beach, Florida on January 25, 2019:

Sorry, whatever I have to do will have to wait till tomorrow. Our weather has dipped again and the nights are cool. Besides, I don't go out at night but tomorrow promises a sunny day in the 60s so I will take a walk. Hope you have a great weekend.

Tim Truzy from U.S.A. on January 25, 2019:

Yes, Dream On,

We are still sitting here because your poetry grabbed us and asked us to pay attention in startling clarity and potent verse.

Loved these lines, Dream on:

"Those people that have done you wrong

Push them in the back of your mind

To fix at another time

They are not out of your life

Just not as important as you right now"

True and accurate on the observation that we have the right to decide what we want of our lives each and every moment.

Much respect and admiration to a gifted poet and writer,

We need a smile button for when you press those buttons...Thanks for the encouragement.
