When Your Plans Our Blown Up Into Tiny Little Pieces


So Many Things To Remember In My Head

I almost forgot

I had these amazing dreams

Voices that talk to me

That sound so convincing and real

Then after a few days or weeks

They begin to fade away

How could something so important in my life

Be discarded as if it never happened

Thrown away no different than garbage on trash day

Once so meaningful and necessary

Now not even a thought or a whim

I have heard people say

It was not meant to be

I don't believe it for one second

If it wasn't meant to be

Then I wouldn't of felt the way I did

I wouldn't feel sad now

I have come up with a new belief

That maybe we were not ready

To make the commitment that the idea needs

To come to life

We have found other things that take priority in our lives

That we feel were more relevant

At this current point in time

That might of happened since the idea surfaced

It means we have to do what we feel is right

Then the idea will come back again

This time stronger and bolder than before

So instead of beating myself up over all the ideas I have let slide

Lets focus and concentrate

Welcoming the next idea that comes our way

Seeing if this one

Will be the one

That spins as fast as a top

Floats on air like a balloon

Gives us as much comfort as a kiss

Is needed as often as a hug

Makes people as happy as a smile

Sharon E Shenko I see many ideas all around the world happen. What drives them to fruition. If it's hard work I have no problem with that. If it's the dedication to the things we love that is not an issue. If it's helping people I am all for that. I think it is a magic combination of all the above. I keep trying to find the people that feel the same way. Many people want to do everything on their own. I like team effort and love people that are positive and believe they can make a difference. Each day new thoughts come into play. Like a card game where the cards are dealt and we have to make choices along the way. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Life is always better because of people with incredible love for mankind.

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on April 23, 2020:

Dream on, keep on dreaming

Like in the song

I heard it said: That dreamers never lie

Hold onto your dreams and do not let them die

Who knows?

Maybe you will dream up something to serve mankind

At least when you are dreaming

It gives you hope, even it is the shortest time

And only in your mind

Blessings my friend! Shyron

Gypsy Rose Lee Just when you think things are going to get easy they sometimes get harder. If not anything else, we learn to make do. Scraping by and looking to find new ways to make it better. All I know is we have to keep trying. We have to stay healthy and wait for this Pandemic to be over. Keep writing your heart out and share the world we all know. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. I hope tomorrow brings some good unexpected surprises.

That darn virus sure made things tough for me. There I was happy as a clam working and writing hard looking forward to my first bigger payment to get my savings going. Then wham. No payment. Finally, I got an answer from the company. They lost 3 senior members and everything stopped. Payment will be coming but not right away and now I am in a financial hole and struggling to get out and keep my head above water. Sign of the times,

Great ideas for writing what comes to mind is written down immediately. You open the mind of readers to new ideas as well.

Ann Carr Typing your ideas is a very good idea to keep all your thoughts organized and easy to access later. I have texted my ideas to my wife if I am outside and have no paper handy. Life is full of surprises and you never know what the next idea will pop into our heads. Thank you for reading and making life fun. Enjoy the lovely weather. Don't forget to wear suntan lotion to protect you from the bad rays. Make today a good day.

Lorna Lamon I find my ideas come when I least expect it. Sometimes when I am talking to a friend. When I go to sleep I usually sleep so solid that I don't remember anything. As soon as my head hits the pillow I am in la-la land. It is fun to take an afternoon nap and try to think of ideas while I sleep. A little daydreaming can be a good method too. Thank you for reading and sharing. I love to hear what other people think and best of all what other people do. Have a great day. Stay safe and make each day the best you can.

Lorna Lamon on April 20, 2020:

I always imagine my best thoughts happen when I sleep, however, in the cold light of day they don't always look the same way. Probably best to live in the realms of the here and now and hope that the next idea will be the best one yet. I love the last three lines of this poem Dream On. An enjoyable read as usual. Take care.

Ann Carr from SW England on April 19, 2020:

Thank you. It is beautifully sunny here.

If I get ideas I just type them out as quickly as possible, in any random fashion, then I sigh with relief and relax!

Ann Carr I feel so bad for your dad. I have been there a few times myself. I once had an idea for a novel and wrote for hours putting what I thought was a good story. It was in the middle of the night and I didn't want to stop. The time wasn't so convenient because I wasn't home and I had work in three hours. I became very tired and very determined to finish. So I decided to stay up and write and write. When I brought my notes home and wanted to read them over I dropped them. I never numbered the pages nor did I write legibly so that I could read them later. I became angry but at who? At myself for not thinking ahead. When I was writing down my thoughts they were coming so fast and furious. All I was thinking was in the future. It seemed so perfect. Lack of sleep and lack of modern technology is to blame. If I get that experience ever again this time I am going to hit record on my phone and just talk my way through it. Problem solved. Years too late and another thought has gone to the wolves. (lol) How about you? Any thoughts you would like to share? Beware. The outcome may not be a pleasant one. Thank you so much for sharing and caring. Have a lovely sunny Sunday.

Jamie Lee Hamann For years I would get so mad at myself for not following through with so many of my different ideas. Even after I had made plans numerous times. I made endless attempts. Than over time I lost interest or got distracted. The ideas would fade away with the sunset. My plans had more holes than a cheese grater. I could spend all my time being mad or do something about it. I would rather be happy in each and every moment during the day. Then being angry for all the things that might or could of happened but didn't. Moving forward in a new direction. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. As soon as I hit done there was a comment from you. How nice was that? Have a wonderful and happy Sunday.

Ann Carr from SW England on April 19, 2020:

Lovely! I know what you mean about ideas that fade away when you thought they were so good at the time. My Dad had a dream once, woke up and wrote it down on a piece of paper beside his bed and, thinking that was saved, went back to sleep. He woke up in the morning, looked at his writing, and it was complete gobbledygook! So much for dreams, eh?

Your'e right. Concentrate on the here and now with all the wonderful things around you.

Keep safe and well.

Your thoughts funnel into a perfect ending. An enjoyable read on a Sunday. Thank you. Jamie
