I know it’s not easy I wouldn’t want it to be,
Nothing in life that has meaning will ever come easily,
I’m willing to fight for the things that I want,
But don’t tell me I don’t want them bad enough.
No matter how much you love someone you can’t change them. I think being a woman it is a hard fact to realize and accept. We want so badly for the people that we love to be apart of our lives in the best way, even when they aren’t. Those of us that find ourselves in situations like this love the people who are stuck. We find that we might be moving forward but those around you either aren’t or can’t keep up.
So this is life? This constant build up and let down. The back and forth of heading straight into the unknown with hope and joy, to suddenly running back in fear and disappointment. Sometimes life seems like it’s bi-polar, all of these high highs and then the lowest of lows, but then again that is how life is supposed to be right?
For me there are two kinds of people in the world, those who like, seek attention and those who are content to let those people get all the attention. I guess in a way we are all, at times, a mix of both, but for the most part people seem to either be in one group or the other. Despite my blog here, I tend to put myself in the allow others to get the attention group. I know that I write my blog here and post to get people to notice, appreciate and be inspired by what I write, but it’s not sensational or just speaking for speakings sake, which there are those people that do that. I can’t say that one is better than the other one, but those people that just speak for speakings sake.
For this weekend, I will share some of my favorite pictures I have taken of flowers. The saying “Take time to smell the roses” is so true (though they don’t have to be roses). With these images and words, just remember that life moves so quickly and we must always remember to take time out to do what we love and hopefully share that with others. Let our words, lens or artistic ability inspire and capture such beauty so that others can’t help but be moved. This world needs all the help it can get when it comes to inspiration and beauty. Share yours with the world, whenever you get the chance!
A place seen in the sun,
So far away yet near you can taste it,
The drip of honey on your lips,
That tease with the tempting idea of success,
Though that offers no guarantees.
Yesterday I actually got some good writing in. It has been a while. I have been working, writing my reviews, going out more, doing the things I need and I’ve just felt uninspired. This past weekend I went to visit family out of town. It was to celebrate my moms birthday, but I needed to get away.
Waiting is an endless feeling that doesn’t go away,
It eats at your soul until you finally get something,
Whatever it is that you have been hoping to find,
The searching and looking dissipates and it’s like a new day.
We don’t get any guarantees in life right? There are those who some consider “privileged”, and well who are born into a lifestyle like that, and there are those who have it “easier” than others, and yes sometimes it seems unfair that they get what they want handed to them rather than working for it. Do we gain something by working for what we want rather than having it handed to us? I honestly don’t have my dreams just yet to be a published author living off my art, but I am in pursuit of that dream.
(So it has been a while since I have written poetry of any kind. I have been more focused on articles, reviews, blogs, my novel, so there has left little room for other kinds of writing. This was what I came up with…I hope that you enjoy. It is just a little break from the normal.)
