Throwing Away A Bag Of McDonalds

She smells of passion
and looks of love
We have interactions with our eyes
that others don’t see
Is this a sign
of what could be?

She walks in the room
and throws away a bag of McDonalds
as she swings back
her blue top, with its fringes
sways with her movement
and I smell her perfume
and I think of writing this poem
and sharing more eye-mind moments

As she turns quickly back into the other room
she scurries innocently
like an embarrassed young girl
she once was

She swings that corner
and doesn’t think quite like this

She goes back to doing her thing.

I wish she thought of me
like I thought of her.

It times of challenge
we must do what it is right

It is life’s way of making us stronger

Never give in.
Never waiver.
Never falter.
Never change.
Always do what you know is right.

When negativity comes
overcome it
don’t let it overtake you-
be better than it

When life brings sorrow, sadness, pain, hurt, anger
come back softly
with compassion and love-
knowing that you can do better than what has been done to you

In times of challenge
get through it by doing what is right
never falter
never change your course
never let life turn you negatively to something you know you are not

When hurt comes
stay strong
When pain comes
stay strong-
overcome it
and be a better person because of it,
life has a way of rewarding such a thing

Do what you know is right
even in the eye of all the wrong that has been done to you

It is simple.  Doing it can sometimes be a challenge, but always do what you know is right, never falter, never change, never give in, be yourself, be true, be real, sometimes, if not just enough, things have a way of working themselves out.

Be strong.
Stay strong.
It will only strengthen you more.
It will only make you a better person.

Do what you know is right.

Don’t take the easy way out.
Don’t do yourself such an injustice.
Be stronger than that.
Do what you know is right.

The slave of society serves far too many masters.  Even the masters themselves are slaves to yet another master.  What is the hierarchy?  All we know is that money is at the top.

I’d jump off a bridge to save a pebble.

There is no void in my heart.  I filled it up with thankfulness.

“Satisfaction is the death of desire.”  I heard that one and it really hit me.  I just wanted to share it.

Freedom, yes.  Freedom.  YES!  To be able to let go.  To be able to be unchained.  Freedom.  There might be nothing better.  Freedom.  Freedom yes.  Freedom now.  Freedom.  Rejoice.  Thank you.

Where am I meant to be?
Wherever you are.

Things I like to see:  A kid walking in the rain who doesn’t care.

Go look in my fridge if you don’t think I got it good.

You see how fast a kid grows in five years and how little you do.

I’m trying to reduce myself to ant watching.

What is everyone laughing at?  I don’t know, but I’m going to laugh too - it’s fun, it feels really good.  Let’s all just start laughing at nothing, and that laughter will catch on and we can laugh together.

I am thankful.  I am full of thanks.  I kneel down in thanks for all that I have.  I cry in the shower, the pull of emotion letting go, a happiness that I must give back, tears that must come to show my appreciation.  I cry so hard I have to kneel down while doing so.  I can’t help it, it just comes out that hard.  I kneel down in the shower crying tears of joy, tears of thankfulness over all that I have; over how lucky, how blessed I truly am.  I have to thank something.  I have to thank anything.  I must do it.  I have to give back in such a little way.  Thank you family.  Thank you friends.  Thank you loved ones.  Thank you life.  I am truly blessed and stop enough to see just how good I have it.  Thank you.  These are not just words are on a sheet, this is truth.  I am so thankful for all that I have.  I am so lucky to have it so good and I must be thankful for it.  Thank you.  I am so thankful for my great family, my great friends, my community, the land around here, the sun, the stars, the wind, life itself, all the food I have, my job, my coworkers, my cats, I thank whatever it is for the ability to be able to stop and reflect and be thankful like this.  As I said, I could never possibly be thankful enough to be as thankful as I need to be.  I could live the rest of my life bowing down humbly thanking life and it still wouldn’t be enough.  But, I must do this more often.  I must stop like this and be thankful.  I have it so good.  I have an abundance of food, shelter; a roof over my head that is more than enough for me and anyone else who wants to visit.  I have it all that anyone could ask for.  Thank you.

Emotion.  Passion.  Effort.  Love.  Hustle.

I could never possibly be as thankful as I need to be.
