Daily Prompt: Rube

He grew up in the country and well he enjoyed the life he lived but, he wanted to see more and be more too. 

He set off to the big city to see the many things that it had to offer him, he didn’t know that his country accent would make people look down on him and call him names like rube. 

He was strong and the walls that had always be up to protect him from the bullies back home, helped him not let them get to him now. 

He found what he loved to do and was good at it too, he wrote songs and stories and became a big success. 

He didn’t go and rub it in the faces of the people who had treated him wrong, he lived his life being kind and loving the people who treated  him bad. 

He knew what they said was not true and that he would make it for he had the talent and he had the faith and his heart was full of love and kindness. 

He knew before they called him names that he was different and unique in his own way and, he knew that the things that made him stand out would help him win in the end. 

He gave back to the people who believed in him and wish the people who didn’t nothing be good luck for he hoped they would change their ways so they too could enjoy the things they love just a little more.

I sit down to read this morning and enjoy the little time I have before going to work and as I stare ate the roses and thread on my desk, begin to wonder how long it’s been since I’ve made anything with my bare hands.

I used to enjoy just making things and just taking long walks and picking roses from the garden but, now it seems I spend more time working and less time reading and doing the things I used to enjoy.

My time is limited and I value the time I have now more than I did before because I spend it doing the things I love less and spend more time doing the things I have to do just to survive in a world that just seems so cruel most of the time.

Daily Prompt: Simplify

I try to say what I have to say in simpler words for you so that you can understand what I need you to do.

But, it’s like no matter what I say or do you don’t seem to want to understand or listen.

I’m losing my patience and my mind is starting to be on the edge and I’m about to erupt like a volcano and the things that will be said I rather not let out.

But, you drove me to this point and at this point in time there is no going back the words coming flowing out and the look on your face is one well I can’t stop now.

When I’m done the voice of anger is no more and the sadness that is clearing raining down on you now.

Is all you’re doing and yes in some way I feel sorry but, right now it need to be said and maybe tomorrow I’ll say I’m sorry and go on from there.

Empty

Three Line Tales, Week 106

It was late at night and the subway was barely empty every one left on the platform was all you saw as we all waited for the last train to come around.

The escalators  leading up and down were empty except for the one lone person heading up.

To where, no one knows maybe they are going home or to a friend’s place but it’s dark out and I hope they get there safely.

Daily Prompt: Puzzled

I want to be able to understand what is going on right now but the truth is  I’m tired of being reliable and always jumping through so many hoops to not be rewarded.

The truth is I don’t want to understand the situation at this point, I just want to relax and not stress over trying to please everyone.

I want to rebel and just say no but, the humbleness inside me just can’t say no but I know one day I’ll just be at the end of my rope and using me will be no good anymore.

Maybe one day things will work out my way but, for now I’m just another puppet in your game and my move is not up to me for your control my strings now.

That night was so peaceful and isolated with just us out there looking at the stars and truly appreciating that night for what it was. 

You and me standing out there looking at the old barn we used to hang out in.

This place meant something to us and we just hope that the memories here will last a life time and maybe one day we bring our kids here to enjoy the view and freedom.

Daily Prompt: Blink

In a blink of an eye things can turn from good to bad.

In a blink of an eye the dream job you wanted to have as a child could come true and you could be living the life you always wanted.

In a blink of an eye the things that you thought really matter doesn’t matter anymore for you found out the truth.

In a blink of an eye the person that was so sweet and kind to you could turn so bitter and rude.

In a blink of an eye everything that was always the same yesterday could be totally different the next day or week.

In a blink of an eye you could be gone

In a blink of an eye you could make a difference for someone who thought that life just couldn’t get any better for them.

In a blink of an eye you could change it all but, the real question is would you want to?
