Thought For Today

Wednesday, June 9, 2010

Life has a way of getting away from us sometimes. We get pulled in many directions, many projects going on and due at once, etc.... Then when things settle down.. swish.... time has flown bye right before your eyes...
I am done with some projects that were due and of course there will be others to take their place, but the pen is back in my hand and papers are being filled again.

Thank you for your thoughts, prayers and concerns during my absence from  blog-land. I am well and have been but let the business of life take away my love for writing for a while...  So here I go again...

 Just when you think you're balanced
Life can turn chaotic in an snap
Seems all the ducks go out of their row
And you have a mess in your lap

Sometimes it's just one big Thing
at others it's many little ones
That wreak havoc in your daily  life
A revolving door that  always runs

At times I feel I'm on top of the world
at others the worlds on me
It's when I look too far ahead
That I trip over what I don't see

When I focus on too many things
It's hard to finish them all
So I put aside those that can wait
And work on the more urgent call

While focusing on the journey of life
Don't forget what brought you here
Is the search for a  foundation
A Source that makes life so dear

In each moment and each step we take
There are lessons that can teach
Getting beyond the hardships in life
We must always learn to reach

To slow down the pandemonium
Breathe deep and let go of fear
Trust in something Greater than you
And keep track of all that is dear

Try not to always follow the crowd
Instead go after suns shine
Then look and listen and investigate
Take it all in and you'll be fine

Listen to your true heart of hearts
It will tell you which way to go
Let go of fear and negativity
And your inner Light will grow

Keep traveling on your journey
Right through its trials and strife
Take that step out of yesterday
Follow the Light into a good life

Inner Peace is not an outside job
It starts from deep within
Find Faith in True Love and Light
Then watch your Life Begin

Your poem is perfect, by the way. So very true, so very NOW.
