Way of Things

I live on pleasant visions of calms sea and light breeze

Times before traumas and emotions like these

Drifting lightly across the top of the tides

As if taking the absurdness of this in stride

Rising high above the pillows adrift

each breathe drawn in a precious gift

gliding back to somewhat solid ground

My smile slightly tips towards frown

How is it possible to feel so high

as I stand on the ground and stare at the sky

The dream I drift into is refreshing and bright

then the grayness returns and delivers my plight

Stand on the ground but don’t stand in one place

the spot where your standing can never be replaced

Keep moving and living and loving those close

Keep smiling and striving and live how you’ve chose

That dream helps remind those still standing still

the time that wasn’t given is ours to fulfill

One never knows what hurdles life brings

I’m coming to understand that sometimes, it’s just the way of things

DAP 10/8/19 Written with Love for my son “Bud”

Published by Green Living Life

I am a father of 4 who lost his oldest son to the military in 2016. (21 yrs old). I am a contract IT wiring engineer who had to resign, after 20 years, because of a disability. I have always loved to write and now I hope to turn it into something that will help us all get back to appreciating the time we are gifted. I accept donations through PayPal@PaddysUSofA or Venmo@PaddytheBlogger if anyone can. I am struggling to support my family since this happened and have decided to be the DIYer that I am by changing to a Plant-based diet for recovery and longevity in my life. I also will help alleviate as much pollution as I can by recycling and not buying meat or dairy, this is now how I feel that I can help: educate and participate. DAP
