Thoughts On Thursday

I've been calmer lately.
Which is so nice.
My soul was weary and tired.
I sometimes figure things out.
Others times I am in
worn out from my journey mode.
I am blessed to be where I am.
Joy of life and the sadness
 it sometimes brings.
It's all a path we walk.
Mine has been bumpy
and full of what ifs.
This week I've been quiet.
As if the turn I've made,
was the right one.
Where do I go from here ?
Always walking.
Turning that corner.
Looking at this or that.
Smelling those darn roses.
They are so nice
even with those thorns.

Hope you all enjoy
your long weekend.

Nothing but the truth

I wanted to write something witty.
Not happening.
I'll just tell the truth.
Which is what I usually do
and that is what has gotten me
in trouble most of my life.
That and my face.
I'm always told that my face
says something different and
shows emotions to others
that I don't really mean.
What am I to do ?
Be stone.
Anyway, on this rainy morning
I thought I'd say that
my life has been a turn and twist.
I'd just like things to go smooth.
Not happening.
I've survived a lot physically and emotionally.
I'm old.
I'm worn out.
I just want to take a long nap
like my cats do.
I will continue on.
I always do.
I will figure out what's best for me.
I usually do that too.
I just hope my face doesn't give me away.
Darn it all ...
if a gal can't hide behind her own
what can she do.
Drink perhaps ...
And these are my thoughts on another rainy morning.

I see potential in the skies
Clouds that mask the blue
Always drifting and giving hope
The warmth that might stay
The light that shines through
I am a believer
that one may find
their soul
hidden within
