one month is almost over ~

another month is about to arrive ~

two more months will bring the end of a year ~

followed by a new one in which i hope to survive*….


it seems time is moving faster and faster

as each year keeps passing me by


i can not help but wonder ~

how many more years


‘my life’





*authors note:  thrive may be used as an ‘optimistic substitute’

    Just make the most of each day, as I know you do. Never put yourself down! (From someone who should learn his own lessons just as well!)

      Yes – so true. 🙂

      I hope…..;) optimisim is not my one of my strengths. I possess it in regards to others but for me – not so much.

        You can have some of mine, I have plenty to spare and then some 🙂

        Thank you. I truly admire people like yourself who possess optimism. Do i call it a gift? I think sometimes it is. I am not certain as to why i find it difficult. I didnt always find it a struggle. xx

        Hope and faith, one day at a time, Kim 🙂

    I prefer the optimistic substitute. Just keep writing ❤

    • 11. words4jp  |  October 31, 2014 at 2:00 am

      Incidentally, last year i wiuld gave not added the optimistic word option. This time i did. Could it be progress?

    The eternal question…no one really knows. 🙂

    • 14. words4jp  |  October 31, 2014 at 2:04 am

      Darn. I was hoping someone would know something……

  • 15. Naughty Poet  |  November 1, 2014 at 5:00 pm

    Sad and true for everyone. I like the raw feelings in this.

    • 16. words4jp  |  November 1, 2014 at 5:03 pm

      Thank you. I am beginning to feel this more and more – and fight it.

      • 17. Naughty Poet  |  November 1, 2014 at 5:23 pm

        I’m sorry that you feel like you must fight it. 😯 I enjoy reading your emotions. You already are open and beautiful. I hope that you find what you seek to give your days a bit more sunshine!

      • 18. words4jp  |  November 1, 2014 at 5:47 pm

        I have my children – of whom i write about quite a bit. They are my sunshine. ;). I do write about my emotions – and many are dark, i am aftaid but i can let them spill here and on another blog i have. Spilling allows some of the rays of sunshine peer through 🌞

      • 19. Naughty Poet  |  November 1, 2014 at 5:53 pm

        Excellent! I also have a son who is my life. Friends and family. True love by those who deserve it helps bring me through.
        I’ve deleted poetry because of the dark feelings I have had. I think that’s normal. I hope you have a friend or two that you can really talk to. Someone needs to catch the dark rain!

        My two boys are my remaining family. Friends? No place near, but faraway – in the distance. I keep my dark words. The title of my blog is Words4jp – j and p are my boys. Someday, when i am gone, they will see me through my words – the good, the conflicted, the depressed and the passionate and the one who loves them more than life. Passionate – maybe not so much here.
