The Drumbeat. .. .. ..

Lightning 1


Do you ever feel not quite ‘with it’
As if the world is a little askew,
it makes everything seem off balance,
I wonder, have you felt this way too?

Pointed_shapes

Do you ever look all about you.
see others going their own way
making you feel quite lost and alien
Misunderstanding what they say?

Pointed_shapes

Do you ever feel totally invisible,
when you’re walking a crowded street,
being rudely pushed this way and that,
Ignored by every passer by you meet?

Pointed_shapes

Do you ever meet the eye of a stranger
feel a link though you know it can’t be
maybe it’s someone from a past life
Is there more to living than you can see?

Pointed_shapes

Have you ever wondered the reason for living,
questioned the meaning of your life to date,
why you’re here, what task you’ve been given
Or is it all in the hands of fate?

Pointed_shapes

If you do, perhaps you understand me
how I feel , as if I don’t quite belong
It seems we follow our own personal drum beat,
it’s all we can do, ‘til we’ve sung our last song……

  1. Good day Lady P,What would we do without our sense of humors. More importantly, we must be able to laugh at ourselves. I am a people watcher and when I meet people I like to have eye contact. They truly are designed as the windows of our soul.Friendships, over time, will reveal our hearts.No matter what, there is the right place where we all belong. All that is asked of us is if we want to come along.Have a tremendous Thursday…Greg

  14. I am always wondering why things are the way they are. My mind is very creative and I’m smart but it also never shuts off. I analyze every situation and think about things way too much. I always go back and forth between certain thoughts and viewpoints and it seems like I’m always contradicting myself. Uuugh! :o)

  15. Hey, Pen! Loved this, but I really have to say…you couldn’t possibly be that old yet to have days like that. As for me, it’s EVERY day. Sheesh….god, what was I saying. Seriously, I had a thread going in my head and now have lost the entire thing. See?
    XOXOXO
