You are

the only one I can’t seem to shake

The only one I can’t see doing anything mean.

The one who does good and stays focus on the things that matter.

And maybe I’m not used to that because I’ve let myself get distracted by everything that is not right.

And now I don’t know what to do with you because I’ve never been in this situation before.

For your different and your full of light and the darkness isn’t something that seems to be gaining on you.

And lately I’ve felt so angry and well the darkness has swallowed me whole and thinking of you.

Has slowly but surely brought me out and today I will do better for me and you.

Just another day

 Of wising it was hot instead of cold outside right now.

Yes I have enjoy the hot drinks and the hot food and just enjoying the sweat pants but it’s time for less layers.

The urge to be inside all the time and now worry about what everyone is saying about staying in.

You know you can be out with a smile on your face and enjoy the air around you.

For you don’t have to be so wrapped up some my not know where all the layers of you end at the end of the day.

Don’t say

 The Golden hush by Greg Sharpe

 A word no matter how much you want too.

For right now isn’t the time for words or action.

It’s time to be quite and mind your business as something that are happening around you are not for your eyes or ears.

You must keep your head down if you want to keep moving forward and accomplishing all those goals you set.

It’s not the time to be looking up and around as if others problems are something you live to fix.

Yes I want you to help out but if know you shouldn’t say a word then don’t say a word.

Just be happy you get to see what is meant for you to see and for the rest you know what to do.

Sometimes

Week 208 of Three Line Tales

three line tales, five year anniversary edition: beware of the dog

photo by Ben Williams vis Unsplash

the bark is all you get and as scary and angry the dog may seem in that moment doesn’t mean he really is that mean.

Maybe the bark is his way of saying hello or maybe he is warning you to stay away for what he claim is his to protect.

He is the dog of the house and has to protect and love those that have given him such a great life and a chance to be loved and spoiled he won’t take it for granted for he knows the world can be a cruel place.

The need

To say what’s on your chest has been eating you up inside and tonight.

You finally said it and now you feel so happy and hopefully.

But you know life will throw a curve ball and all that seemed great may not always be that way.

But that doesn’t stop you for hoping things will change and work out this time.

For there are many combinations to solving and living the good way as there are only few for just living the safe away and tons of going down the path well traveled.

But now it’s time to finally step out and survive because change is necessary to go to the top.

Each door that is open will show you how to just trust your instinct and it will be true out just fine.

 Celebrate the new changes that are coming our way.

With something sweet and drink something that will comment it.

For it’s time to embrace the change and look forward to it for once for this is my time to shine.

No more thinking too much about things I can’t control or wishing someone would see what I see.

Maybe than they would know it’s not just what’s going on around them but some what their doing too.

Week 207 of Three Line Tales

three line tales, week 207: a man talking to a woman looking out of a barn

photo by Priscilla Du Preez via Unsplash

at you again even though I’ve tolda you this barn is not the safest place to be but every time you laugh at me as if I am being so silly.

You have some weeds in your hand today and you kind remind  me of an old wise guy but we all know you don’t like to be called that at all.

But you still give out so much advice you think you loved being around people but in fact you just wish they all leave you alone and stay away from your precious barn and only I could come by for our talks.

Week 206 of Three Line Tales

three line tales, week 206: children playing chess with a pair of girls in the foreground; chess friends

to be fun playing this game now its all about competitions and trying to be better than others for your school and community.

Sometimes it makes me sad to see how focused we are on the game in front of us but not really enjoying the things that are going on around us.

I know one day things in life will be more serious so I dont want to miss out on the fun and silly things so today will be my last day playing this game for competition for I want to play it for fun with you.

There is

 Always two ways to go and the possibility that you could pick the right one is 50/50.

But today you can relax for you know which path to take on this run.

And maybe when the time comes to choose the path that will lead you to new things.

You will be ready to make the right decision and have that feeling inside that you did the right thing.

You never seem to know when that path will come up so it’s best to know what you want and don’t want in your life so that the red flags are seen sooner rather than later.
