When Your World Closes In

Updated on October 26, 2018

It's A Small World

Each day goes by one by one

We go to work out of necessity and self pride

Waking up with desires and dreams

Our mind can and will go in any direction

It is up to us to see that we do and be who want to be

Easily our bodies will follow the leader

We can achieve greatness or disaster

There are man made rules that guide us

Our own internal rules influence us even greater

Universal laws control the world

We watch other people and they are also struggling with their own circumstances

Some what like our but also so much different

It is easily to give up control and let other people direct us

This is not a good way

It works for awhile but through this approach we can never be truly satisfied

Our minds seek freedom of expression

Conflicts our not only common but needed to reach our own destiny

We may end up in any phase for days or years

It is solely up to us

Our bodies physically travel through all our emotions

Taking their toll over the years that we live

There is always the unknown

That mystifies us and will intrigue us

The knowledge that we understand

Is far greater than we can comprehend

There is a fine grey line between the both

Each moment we go in a direction that can either help us or hurt us

Only time will tell

Constantly be aware of things that we are doing and saying

They are true indicators of if we are in a good place or an unhealthy one

Welcome the good and try to understand the bad

May love support you on your journey

So each and every day you may uncover a little more happiness

Then the world that we see and feel

Will open up

To the world we could of imagined

To be more and more

Having less and less

      lunaticdiaries Life is so special and is an amazing gift. We should never take it for granted. Somehow our mind thinks we can live forever. All we have to look around and see it is not true. Because we feel invincible things in our lives get pushed aside and forgotten or never completed. It is up to us to find our true enjoyment and make each day more special than the one before. Practice makes perfect. Along the way is what is the real fun. I hope your Thanksgiving was loving and very special. Thank you so much for reading and sharing.

      DreamOn, you are right about making choices, about our own lives & futures. Either get up & fight each day, writing our own stories minute by minute, or thowing the towel in & giving up. Very well written.

      Many feelings come and go. We can ignore our heart or follow it and see where it leads. I believe in being true to myself and as I watch the world around me. I think how to understand and deal with so much. I reach into my bag of emotions and pull them out. Watching other people reacting to different situations. I hold on and think and ponder what is good and how it will affect other people. Turn my feelings into words and watch them vividly release across the blank page. Not hurting anyone or causing pain. I am explaining my inner turmoil and greatest joys. Hoping other people might connect and explain in their own words what they feel. In the end a new discovery and beautiful new approach to life. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. I hope your day was inspiring and full of new dreams and passion.

      Dream on......I don't visit our site as often as I used to and thus, I read and comment less and less. However, I happen to come upon this LOVELY work of yours and it has touched me deeply.

      I read it 3 times to absorb it's full power and I must thank you for such inspiration. How true it is that "words have power." Often, I have found that one mere sentence can change our entire world from darkness to bright sunshine........You have succeeded in this magic today.

      Simply wonderful. Peace, Paula

      Gypsy Rose Lee People see friends in all different ways. Being in the military might give him a different perspective on life. Every day he is putting his life on the line and at risk to keep peace in the world. I certainly wouldn't want the stress and the risk of being injured or killed. I thank the military every day for doing what they do and I don't understand all the problems that we are having either. I like meeting people face to face and get to know people the old fashioned way. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Have a wonderful Thursday.

      Recently I have corresponded with a man who is a soldier so one of the US finest and right now is in Afghanistan. I will never understand what they do over there though. Anyway, to him life is so simple. You write to someone in this case through FB, you are alone, they are alone, no problem you can choose not to go on alone. I think to myself life is complicated enough without adding to it and he cannot understand how anyone cannot just pick up from where they left off and continue on. I think anyone who looks at relationships so simply and having not even met the other person is just not serious. Then my cat Sid who walks around meowing at me telling me goodness knows what is even more serious than that. All of this makes me want to completely close the door and walk on alone.
