sometimes I like to think about…
a walk on the beach
a swim in the sea
a trek through the snow
a hike up a mountain
a trail in the forest
a kiss on the throat
a world filled with love
and strawberry shortcakes
reality sets in
problems demand attention
decisions takes measure
orders are given
work keeps piling up
so you delegate responsibility
aggravate those who don’t work
push an agenda
shove like a bully
and engulf the competition
it’s just a day
in a week
of a life
where all thoughts end
at the corner of living
and being alive

Most of us get caught in that corner far too often - sounds like a little escape might be in order, Sara.

|We write to escape, even though we know that reality stands in wait of when we are done.
Sometimes though, it shoves and I shove back. That's when I get to smile. Knowing that I really do have the power to lock the door.
Stunning write Sara...now..lock the door and smile!

|Will there ever be time to be what we really want to be..and to do what we yearn for...I guess not....life is a railroad...filled with too much shit!!

|Sara, it’s no wonder why one yearns for the simple days of ones youth. However, it also reminds me of what my late grandfather would always tell me, “if you want something done right, you must do it yourself.” In this day in age where we tend to push through hell and high water to get it done, we often cannot take the time we need to sit back and just relax. I enjoyed the read. Thanks for sharing it. Take good care and be well.|
