The World Turns.

The world turns, the sun sets and another day ends. In the gathering darkness, shadows from that place beyond my window, dance upon the walls. As the light grows ever dimmer, thoughts glow in my mind.
Has this been another day of negative energy? Or has the time on my own, contemplating a better future, been a time. truly well spent? As I get ready for sleep, I supress the negative 'chatter' that sabotages my positive thoughts.
To those that traumatised me, bullied me, played on my vulnerable state. I say, shame on them, for they will never, ever again, impose on my right to a better life.
The world turns, the sun sets and another day ends. Tomorrow brings new hope, new possibilities. At the dawning of the new day, we make a choice. Do we breathe in the fresh air of positive thoughts? Or do we give a negative environment permission to drown us in a sea of torment? The world turns, and with the new light, we see that if we are here for each other, we are here for ourselves.

One man lives and one man dies,
One child laughs and one child cries,
One man hates and one man loves,
One child sees war and one child sees doves.


  1. everyday its a struggle against negativity.
    There are always ppl who are there to make us believe that we are not any better than them.
    Its a constant struggle.

  2. Absolutely beautiful, bravo, live your life! Kind regards, Dixie

  3. Greetings Desperado,
    I think that folks who would prey on our vulnerabilities are trying to mask their own insecurities.
    An 'easy target', can make them feel better about themselves.
    Thank you for your comment. Keep challenging the negativity, my friend.
    Warm regards, Gary:-)

  6. Hey D.S.,
    You are so right. We are not alone in this. We do have a choice. Choosing to seek genuine people who are good for our mental health wellbeing, is vital in our ongoing recovery processes.
    You know I am here for you. You have the right to be happy. Those that would undermine your altruistic intentions, have the problem. Don't let them get to you my friend. Be strong.
    Peace, Gary.

I do try to comment back to each commenter individually. However, I might have to shorten my replies or give a group thank you. That way, I can spend more time commenting on your blogs. Thank you and peace, my friend.
