We Can We Will

Author:

Another Day Another Way

Every time something goes wrong

We have to stop and think

Why?

What can I do better?

Then take that new knowledge

Apply it to your current situation

It sounds so easy

In reality, it is so so hard

Something inside of us

Says stop!

You failed!

Give up!

Why are you even trying?

Do you think next time is going to be any different?

My answer is yes

My answer is I am not going to let you win

Then you may say who is you?

It is all the things my mind has made up to prove me wrong

My biggest problem

Isn't me against another person

It is me against me

Now that sounds crazy

It is true

I wake up trying to be a little bit better person than before

If I am cleaning our house or doing any other chore

Doing things for my wife or anyone I care for

Finding ways to make me happy

We all have a past

Things that we are proud of

The list may be small

Then there are things we wish could be different

This list grows and grows like nothing I have ever seen

It multiplies like rabbits

I don't even own rabbits

I am sure those cute little bunnies

Turn into one big handful

One that I don't know what to do

There is no escape

So I hold those adorable bunnies in my hand

All furry and cute

We have to work together

I am not going to eat you

You have to do what bunnies do

I am going to make friends with you

You are going to help me

I am going to find ways to bring out my every insecurity

Every problem that I couldn't solve

Yes, it will be hard

Probably, the hardest thing in my life

All I am going to remember

How bunnies hop around

They are so fast

I am not going to remember how much they poop

I have only seen bunnies at a fair or a few out in the wild

So as I continue to tackle unresolved issues of my past

I could only wish I had the speed of you my friend

Carefree and wild

Living each day

Full of energy and lots of get up and go

You never worried that you are smaller than everyone else

You walk on four legs instead of two

I want to be more like you

Mona Sabalones Gonzalez I love their fur and I just want to hug them. Then again it is not like they are going to sit in my lap. Thank you for your special comments on my poems. I appreciate it very much. Have a cool and lovely day.

I love the comparison you made to bunnies.

Marlene Bertrand It is always nice to get words of encouragement. They give us hope. Even if I am going through issues with some problems. There is light at the end of the tunnel. It is amazing when we find answers along the way. That makes me so happy. The troubles seem to melt away. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Today is a beautiful day outside. Now I have to transform it to inside. It takes time.

Ann Carr Today my wife and I tried to copy my pictures from my phone to an SD memory card. It would have been so much easier if I did this long ago. Of course, I wait until there is no room left. No, every step is more complicated. We both get heated. I found a fun pastime taking pictures. Now it has come to bite me in the butt. Little by little. I remind my wife Rhome wasn't built in a day. All my pictures weren't taken overnight either. We could just erase them and start fresh. That's not nice. One thing leads to another. Small steps will show progress. Talk soon. Thank you so much for sharing and caring.

A lovely poem. It is a reminder to wake up and live for the day we have been given.

I know exactly what you mean! I'm one who dwells too much on past difficulties or mistakes, especially the worst ones. But you're completely right to say that we must put them behind us, carry on trying to be better, do all sorts of things to make our and others' lives better. This is upbeat and positive, as always!
