NEW POEM, everybody!!!!!!!

Looking For You

It's just another
Passing day
Perhaps you, too
Feel just this way
In boredom's thrall
Our lives march on
And as the days have come and gone
Dissatisfaction's been our lot
With what we have
And haven't got
And while we wait
We'll breathe a sigh
And sitting here
We'll wonder why

Now,
If my little rhyme rings true!
I'll tell you, friend
Here's what you do!
Just grab your pen
And take the time
To write some words
There on the line!
Then send them off
Right here to me!
And pretty soon
You're bound to see
The mailman
Stopping at your door!
With words of cheer
And so much more!
Adventure waits
Upon your note!
And you will be so glad you wrote!

So
If you'd like to change your fate!
I tell you, friend
Don't hesitate!
Just take the time to write to me!
Then just sit back
And soon you'll see
That everyday
As dawn breaks through
You'll have a sense of wonder, too!
In all the minutes of your day!
And joy
In all you do and say!

You'll find you laugh
When you recall
Some line I wrote
About some fall
I took
When I was just a lad
And how
Though I was hurting bad
The only thought that filled my brain
Was how would I
This fall
Explain
Could I get down on bended knee
And tell my mom
"It wasn't me!"
"No ma'am", I'd say
"The Martians came!
I fought the off!
But now I'm lame!
And so you shouldn't punish me!
It's not my fault
I hope you see!
You ought to blame the President!
It was for him
That they were sent!
I didn't ask to have that fight!
I tell you, mom
It's just not right!"

I'll tell you tales
And swear they're true!
About
How I lived in a zoo!
With Monkeys!
Pigs!
And Grizzly Bear!
I SWEAR IT'S TRUE!
I STILL live there!

I'll make you laugh!
I'll touch your heart!
And that
My friend
Is just the start!
You see
I'm NOT your average guy!
I dare to dream!
I laugh!
I cry!
I don't put on a face
You see
To be someone
Who isn't me!
So what you see is what you get!
So now I ask
"You ain't wrote yet?
Get on your job!
You loafer, you!
Write out a page!
Or maybe two!
Then send them off
To where I'm at!
You think that you
Can handle that?"

So
As my rhyme comes to an end
There's just one thing
My new found friend
That I will say
Before I go
There's just one thing
For you to know
If you should die
Before you wake
Well then
My friend
'twould be too late!
If you don't write
And take this chance
If you don't try to learn this dance
Your life will surely pass you by!
And when it comes your turn to die
Your mind
Will be filled with regret
For all you haven't done
As yet!
But while you live
It's not too late!
Today
Is just the starting gate!
So live your life as if today
Was your last chance
To laugh and play!
Come on
My friend
Let's sing a song!
For now's your chance
To come along!
To live your life in such a way
That you'll enjoy most everyday!
Then
When it comes your turn to die
You won't think back
And wonder why
You didn't take the chance you had
And so
My friend
You won't be sad!
You'll smile and say
"You know
My friend
We had some times
Once
Way back when!
I still recall the times we had!
And friend
You know
Life ain't half bad!
As long as it's filled up with friends
The joy of life
It never ends!
I'm glad I took the time to write!
You know
Those times were out of sight!
I'm glad for all the times we've shared!
For all those times
When you were there!
For all those things that you did give
That made my life a joy to live!
And as this life comes to an end
For all those things
I thank you
Friend!"

I KNOW you all think I can't write a SHORT poem! And I WILL admit that I'M JUST A BIT on the "Loquacious" side of 'Tall, Dark, and Handsome!" But JUST TO PROVE YOU'RE ALL WRONG, I'm going to give you a SECOND HELPING of "The Anarchist"'s "Elixir of Life"! This is written in the Japanese "Haiku" style. And I call it "A Tear".

A Tear

And what is a tear?
The essence of life, distilled
From the mind of man!

I know that when you get poems from me, they get all scrunched up against the left hand margin. But there doesn't seem to be anything I can do, about that!

And you don't need to read any more than this far. Anyway, let me wish YOU a $1,000,000 day! (But you BETTER LEAVE SOME FOR ME! Or I'LL HAUNT YOU FOREVER!!!!!!! : -)

As MLK once said - I have a dream! Actually, I have a lot of dreams! But let's just deal with one, for now. I'm 66 years young, and I want to help some of my Viet Nam brother veterans. Actually, any veterans, who need help. Any PEOPLE that need help! I know a lot of vets that came home from Viet Nam with "baggage" that has crippled them. And they've never really reintegrated into society. And I'm sure that some of the guys coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan are dealing with the same types of problems. My "Dream" is to be able to create a vehicle that I can offer those men (and women) as a way to become a "Self-sufficient", contributing member of society, once again. To get them to rejoin "Society/Humanity", once again. But, to do that, I need to be able to show them that I have become a self-sufficient, contributing member of society, again. If I can't show them that it IS possible (by my own example), I'll never be able to capture their attention! And so, I won't be able to get them to "Opt In" to what I want/hope to offer them. So I need a little help, with that.

I don't mine doing the work. I've been "doing" for myself for 45+ years, now. And I understand that I'm going to have to do the work, if I want anything, in this world. But I'm NOT computer literate! And I know EVEN LESS about business, ON OR OFF the internet!

So, if you happen to learn something, and you think it might help me accomplish MY dream, PLEASE, stop by, and drop it into my EMPTY well of knowledge, so I can learn, and give that knowledge to others that are in need.

I don't have anything to offer you, in return. But maybe I can give you a few smiles along the way! My SMILES account seems to have a few extra in it! And, if you need a little help writing out your website's content, I'm not Robert Frost, or John Grisham, but I'm available. And,if you'll accept my word about it, I do know a little bit about the English language. What can be done with it. And how to do that, with it. Oh! I didn't think of this, but if you could use a T-shirt to advertise your site, I might be able to help you there! And if you think you might like or want to have some T-shirts made up, to give, or sell, to your customers as a way of advertizing, getting your name out into the general public, talk to me about that! We might be able to help each other! Or, if you want to "improve" any artwork or pictures you want to use on your site, I might be able to help you with that. I've got the necessary programing to do that. I use it to make my T-shirt designs. I'm not really an artist, but I can enhance any picture you already have! And I can lift bits and pieces out of other pictures and art, and rearrange them into something new. If you might need something along those lines, let me know, and I'll email you some of the things I've done, so you can figure out if I might be able to help you out.

Bye now! And Thanks! And may you walk on the sunny side of all your life's roads! J
TheAnarchist's Goals 3
Money Goals
How much money would I be happy earning? Enough to get my vets to opt in, and work with me. (The dream I mentioned earlier is to be able to help some of the veteran's I know "rejoin" society, and become self-sufficent.) That could be as little as $2,000 a month. But somewhere between $200 and $500 a day would work a lot better.

How much money would I be ecstatic earning? $1,000 (or more) a day! That would be enough to get another one of my dreams in motion!

How much time am I willing to invest, to do this? Well, right now, since I'm retired, I've got 24/7 to work on getting up and running! But, somewhere down the road, I want to be able to spend as much time, if not more time, on my "dreams", as I do operating my business. Having money is nice, it gives you some freedom of choice. But the money, itself, doesn't mean a whole lot, to me. My only real interest in the money, is that, if I have enough of it, I'll have the freedom to use my time as I want to.

How much money is that? I, personally, don't need that much to take care of my needs. I can actually live comfortably on say $30,000/$40,000 a year. But for me to do what I want to do, to be able to afford the "tools" I want to make available to "The Guys" (my veterans), I think I'll need somewhere over $75/80,000 a year. Not that much, in the grand scheme of things, I think. But enough to be able to make a difference in some lives.

NO! Thank you, Ladman! (And I like labs, too! I think they're one of the VERY SMARTEST dog breeds there is!) I'm trying to build a network here, because I know I DON'T KNOW anything about all this! And there's just no way I'm gonna get this done, without some help along the way! : -) j

Hello, James!

Just totally love your poem....I think that smiling is one of the greatest gifts we give to others and give to ourselves. I have found when life is filling up with challenges that if I just look up and smile the tears subside and my spirit lifts.

I learned this little trick from Tony Robinson ages ago and it works, just look up.

Well, I have found you now and I encourage you to do the lessons and related tasks and in time you are going to build a business that will accomplish your goal of reaching out to veterans. War is indeed a horrible thing on the human spirit! My heart goes out to you and those you will touch along your way.

Thank you Linda!

I appreciate your coments. I have another poem I call "I AM", which tells you a little about who I am. I was going to tell you you would see it if you stopped by my profile sometimes, as I'm going to start posting some of my poems there every week or so. Sort of my way to contribute a little something back to the community, here. But then I thought, "You can do this!" I already have my computer up and running, so all it is is just a copy and paste job! So, here it is! The reason you're getting a sneak preview is because of what you said about smiling! When you read this poem, you'll notice a line that says I am - ADDICTED - to smiles! Now, this poem was written MANY years ago. And that was true of me, then! And, actually, EVERYTHING I say in this poem was true of me when I wrote it! And is still true of me today! I was going through a phase of introspection (Who am I? And why am I here? stuff) when I wrote this. So now you know how this poem came to be! And you'll know a little about who "I AM", when you finish it!



I Am

I am
In love with life!
I am
A Child
Of Joy!
And Wonder!
A Slave
To my Human Appetites!
A Friend
If I may be!
An Enemy
If I must be!
I am
A Connoisseur
Of Daffodils!
And Dragonflies!
A Builder
Of Dreams!
A Repository
Of odd Bits and Pieces
Of Knowledge!
I am
ADDICTED
To Smiles!
DEPRESSED
By Bureaucrats!
INCURABLY
Romantic!
I am
Simply
a Man!

And yes! You've found me! But now I know where to find you, TOO! So I'll warn you in advance! The questions are coming! : -)

Bye now! And

May you walk on the sunny sude of all your life's roads! And may those roads always lead you downhill !

And when the questions come....I hope I know the answer. If I don't then we can look for that answer together and then we both learn. One thing I have found to be VERY helpful is the white bar across the top of the screen. It asks "Need help XXXXX (your name)? As your question here...."

I have to tell you that I haven't ever been without an answer by using this feature here in the WA platform. Its crazy amazing how much information is made available to us for the price of our membership. it is way beyond valuable and not anywhere close to the cost of a university education in this field. The value goes way beyond the price we pay!

Have a gorgeous day!

Hi, AGAIN, Linda!

Again, thank you for the comments, and your directions! I'm sure to use that Need Help area until I've picked EVERYONE's brain clean!
: -)
Bye bye, now! And have a great day! But leave a little money out there for me to get! : -) j

If you can help people, you can create a successful business doing so. This goes for absolutely any niche James.

Over the years I have personally been involved in many niches and the same principles held true. If you help someone, you build trust and once you have trust, you can generate revenue through your promotions. Not until then.

That is what you are going to learn all about here at WA and the proper strategies to create a business online. I look forward to working with you and if you need a hand with anything moving forward, simply drop me a reply here and I will give you a hand.

PS. I hope you have an awesome week ahead!
