Changing direction
Going against the flow
Beating the odds
That’s how I’d like to go

Yet I get stuck in the same mire
Falling down the same pit
Failing the same task
So I give up in a childish fit

But we must keep pressing on
Though we’re not perfect we try
Until our savior comes back
And to Heaven we fly.

First poem of the new year
Not sure what to say I fear
Mississippi’s colder than it’s been in years
With wind stiff enough to draw tears
Don’t know what it’s like where you’re near
But I hope you have a wonderful day my dears

Today’s is short and to the point. It’s not my best, but I’m tired and feeling stressed about many things. I hope you had a good holiday season and I hope you have a happy new year.

One year is ending
Another begins
Get ready for what God is sending
And to face down your sins

I’m ready to give gifts
To all my loved ones
I hope they have fun
And enjoy them tons

I’m ready to see family
Laughing, smiling, and happy
I’m excited for Christmas
Though it may seem sappy

I’m ready for time off
From working all the time
But most of all I’m ready
To thank Jesus all the time

A busy week behind us
Another one ahead
All I really want
Is to remain in bed

It’s hard to catch up
When you’ve missed too much sleep
But I’d like to give it a try
I’d like to take the leap

Wrapped up in my blanket
Cozy in my bed
That’s where I’m going to be
All day, in my head.

The weekends fly by
They don’t even try
To last any time now

Just like the shorter days
That always leave me in a haze
Wondering where the time goes

Similar to the restless nights
That pass filled with dreamy fights
For people and things I don’t know

Makes me worry I won’t get things done
That need to be taken care of, along with some fun
When I take off for Christmas

How do I get into the holiday spirit?
Or is it supposed to get in me?
Like some sort of infection spreading through me body?
Is that the way it should be?

I’m not really sure how it’s supposed to go
But I just don’t feel “Christmas-y” this year
So if someone could tell me it’d be nice to know
How to get into the spirit my dear.

The change in weather
The week of thanksgiving
A time of family
A time of living

Give thanks to the creator
And to each other
Mother and father
Sister and brother

I’m thankful for friends
And for my wife
With whom I’m grateful
To spend my life

Choices are made
Some good some bad
We live with the results
No matter how sad

Think before you act
So you don’t ruin your life
One bad decision
Can bring a world of strife

Those who serve people they’ll never meet
So glad for our Veterans one and all
They fight for our freedoms, even giving their life
So thank a Veteran today for answering the call

On another note...

This is about my struggle to confront my fears of changing my direction all for a better life.
