A Bird

I looked outside this morning and a bird was fighting it’s reflection in my side view mirror. I watched it for a few minutes. It was funny. I went to get my phone to video it and when I got back it was gone. I guess it won or just got tired of fighting. So, I go to get in my truck and the mirror is broken cracked.

This got me thinking about my life when I was younger. I was just like the bird, fighting everyone and everything. Even myself. Never satisfied with anything. Never happy with anything I was given or worked for.

I guess I’ve changed because I try to enjoy life and take time to be grateful. I guess I was like the bird, tired of fighting.

A Blank Page

I’ll give you a blank page.

So you can write your life over.

You can start anytime.

You must choose to begin.

Let the past go.

Live in the moment.

Tomorrow may never come.

All you have is right now.

So here’s a pen.

You have the paper.

Take care of yourself.

And don’t forget to love.

Be good to others.

Are you ready?

Because you are enough.

Want to Trade Lives

My life sux he said.
I’d just as soon be dead.

I replied, want to trade lives?
As he searched my eyes.

I have that power.
So don’t cower.

It’s not forever.
And I can make it all better.

How would you do that?
Oh, well I wouldn’t stand pat.

I’d open my heart.
And make a new start.

I’d smile and be happy.
And sometimes a little sappy.

I find beauty in the world.
Maybe dance in a swirl.

I’d get rid of hateful.
And be forever grateful.

For your thoughts are the key,
To your destiny!

Spiritually Connected

Feeling connected?
Well, you’ve been selected.

He came to me in a vision,
And told me of our special mission.

He said let it begin.
For it never ends.

Forget life as you know it to be.
And serve the One you can’t see.

Heaven awaits.
So walk thru the gate.

You’ll never be deselected.
If you’re spiritually connected!

Emotional Paradise

It seemed I had but two emotions.
But then I received a potion.

Anger or feat,
To the point, I couldn’t care.

So I dug a hole,
Straight to my soul.

The potion hit me like a ton.
And it made me see the sun.

It smiled and said,
Before long you’ll be dead.

Please look at the light.
Shining so bright.

Try happy, joyous, and free.
And see what you can be.

Try my advice,
And you’ll find emotional Paradise!

I Dreamt About Having a Dream

I dreamed I dreamed of you,
It was perfect.

I was watching myself dream,
Floating like a cloud.

When all at once!
I was awake.

And I realized it was a dream.
Everything!
It had been a farce.
They began to laugh.

I smiled.
I felt silly.

Because it’s all a dream.
Or is a memory.

That one day will merge,
If you so urge.

Four

Being a bore?
It could be a chore.

To go to your core.
And find the door.

Then, what’s it for?
Promise there will be no gore.

According to lore,
But still, there’s more.

So it’s either, or,
Will you please help the poor.

And your reward is to roar.
And of course, soar.

When the world is tore,
You will stop the war.

4 you’re the 1
it is 4

Some Things You Can’t Change

Like a dog who still chases cars,

After being hit.

Like an alcoholic who still drinks,

After cirrhosis.

Some things you can’t change.

Like the mom who still loves,

The addict son.

Like a sister who still loves,

The failed brother.

Some things you can’t change.

Like a heart who still loves,

The one who was wrong.

Like me in me!

Some things you can’t change!
