Big pill to swallow

Like my blogs title; a big pill to swallow

Accepting lifes bullshit,

a hard act to follow

So how do we move forward in shit situations

Maintaining our patience & remember to swallow

Grab a big glass, fill it with water, swallow that pill

The big pill we swallow– the bulk of the battle

But bullshit in life is a war not just battle

It’s a rough road were riding, but a cost we’ll pay

Because this road is filled with lifes battles,

for my brothers I’ll pray.

Brother be safe & I’ll see you back home

Although I’m not with you

You won’t be alone

A bond between brothers is stronger than stone

I promise we’ll make it, this road will be conquered

 on this road I won’t stop, I’ll always just swallow

The pill will go down, my journey not hollow 

Step after step I promise to follow, because walking alone leaves no

hand to borrow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How things are different

I woke up today and, things just seem different.

I look around, see nothing missing, but something is different.

My thoughts are growing  distant, depression explicit, emotional roller coaster every passing minute.  

I speak without witness to exhibit, how immune our mind can be to limits.

All people are different, some cry as if victim, blaming anyone but themselves for problems not fixing.

Different isn’t a problem, difference is lifes beauty.  If it’s hard sometimes being different, just look in a mirror and count what’s missing.

In your reflection you will see nothing different,

surely nothing missing,

All people have visions, and wishes

Those goals may be different, people are unique.

But,

All things are possible as long as we wish it,

We define our limits, as we decide if obstacles will inhibit, the dream or vision, we imagine seeing in reflection.

So look in the mirror, observe your reflection, decide where you’re headed and follow that direction.

Step by step, embrace lifes change.  Lifes like a book, you move forward as you turn the page.

Brighten your day

I’m growing up today; and older by tomorrow.  See…..

I find I am wiser than I was before, yet I’m constantly in pursuit of more.

I fear that if I dare to close my eyes, someone would seize their opportunity to close my door;

I suppose this thought keeps me grounded, my feet grasping floor;

See, everyone has choices in life; and yes, favorable options are occasionally ignored.

But, I have found success starts with a single vision; as of yet I haven’t found my vision, but I am eager to explore;

I have no fear nor fright; in my journey to tomorrow;

Because I am growing up today; ill be wiser on the morrow;

I live my life today, and look ahead  tomorrow,

I live my life today, knowing the past cannot be borrowed.

Backwards

What if as babies we learned how to walk, before we could crawl

Children weren’t little, rather commonly tall

I close my eyes to imagine, and I’m briefly appalled

Can you guess what I saw?

A world with overgrown infants, enforcing the law.

As my eyes open I see no big babies

Rather a world black and white; no room for maybes.

So I keep closing my eyes, until my reality is hazy

And I see the world unique, full of overgrown babies

Practical

Without passion, life would be monotonous.

Although unlikely, perhaps I wouldn’t even smile at the sight of a hippopotamus.

I wouldn’t be afraid in a zombie apocalypse, you know, I could prolly create a rather long list of the things we might miss, if there was no desire for first kiss.

Without passion, falling in love quickly falls out of fashion.  We better prepare now in case of an emergency.

If the world loses all its passion, we will survive because I thought ahead, grabbed some of our love and stashed it.

People will beg and be jealous, but cant have it, they’ll be stuck on the outside gazing at the world we inhabit like addicts,

For the world as a whole this might be tragic, but we have better imaginations than most so were expecting magic,

That is our experience, a journey quite mysterious, no more social adherence, parental interference, all a part of our disappearance that we insist isn’t that serious.

Into the wild

Sometimes I dream of leaving here, and traveling to the wild.

Sadly, I wake to find I am not a child, my mind is beguiled.

Suddenly my journey traveling through the unknown, becomes me checking the time on my phone.

Instead of mystical kings, and thrones….. My reality is rush hour traffic & mobile phones.

Instead of wildebeest and kangaroos, I have unpaid bills & outlook blue….As I think deeply, I suddenly reach a conclusion.  What if my reality, is another’s illusion.

When I see black, they see grey.  I say hello today, but they wont respond till may.

The type of person you want to leave, but they insist to stay.

All is possible when its night; no longer day.

Growing up today

I’m growing up today; and older by tomorrow.  See…..

I find I am wiser than I was before, yet I’m constantly in pursuit of more.

I fear that if I dare to close my eyes, someone would seize their opportunity to close my door;

I suppose this thought keeps me grounded, my feet firmly grasping floor;

See, everyone has choices in life; and yes, favorable options are occasionally ignored.

But, I have found success starts with a single vision; as of yet I haven’t found my vision, but I am eager explore;

I have no fear nor fright; in my journey to tomorrow;

Because I am growing up today; ill be wiser on the morrow;

I live my life today, and look ahead  tomorrow,

I live my life today, knowing the past cannot be borrowed.
