a crack in the impossible

I did not ask for miracles
through small cracks
of understanding and belief,
I believe

I did not ask for the impossible
with growth
in belief,
now understand why
I should

I asked for the unbelievable
and it brought,
the impossible,
a will for courage
in the sneering face
of adversity

I am silenced waiting,
but ready

for the impossible, though with growth in belief,
now understand why I should.

My favorite of all the lines in this work. We should always ask the impossible of ourselves, so that when we succeed, we will be unbelievably positive that we can do anything! Or something like that....Just trying to say that you never know what you are capable of until you try. Love and higgest bugs, ~ Gee

Writing purely for oneself, is the ultimate in defensive posture.

smiles you really read it you got the message :) I am very happy you liked this one

and you must never ever give up

probably because I can not stop talking
Im on output as I see so much coming in
and yet nothing at times
because Im not focused
it has taken plain old Old age to get me settled

I get to watch others
something I love to do

speaking at meetings
and I notice those that sit on their hands
while speaking

knowing that this was a tactic that went
along with Keeping ones mouth shut too
(It actually worked on me.)
we didnt have the quiet chair!!
going to ones room in our house was thought
too much of banishment..
I admit though it was a great place to have a
good crie from frustrations or tiredness
as it does work well here in our home

sometimes its just over tiredness and crankiness

I talk a lot in life as in here
going on about things

but lately Ive been learning to not
just focus on the output
Ive actually gotten to this stage in
life that most kids learn and young
since being quiet and listening
(still thinking the rapid output though!!!)
and actually asking some people
how their day went..I am learning
information and getting feelings and I just put off this part of
growing up till now

but not its got a value
I dont let people walk their propoganda
over me no more either
so I do talk!!
when its appropriate

I really have to focus to sit and look calm
but its working
im getting into it
and learning
about others and about me

I like how this poem talks about
believing in adversitys face

I never gave up

and sometimes when Im quiet
I get the most strongest
like rewards for being patient and strong
I like that a lot!!!

Thank You!
