October 10, 2022: Compilation – Untitled

This is a warning that with my mood
this happy poem might not be that good
it makes me admire the professionals
and all the things, and all my calls
when being a teacher was what I was
now being an actor is all the buzz
’cause no one wants to hear me whine
so my thoughts and desires stay just mine.

Prompt of the Week: Pumpkin Spiced Everything

Visit Lady Jabberwocky to join in this writing prompt!: https://ladyjabberwocky.com/2022/10/10/prompt-of-the-week-pumpkin-spiced-everything/

In the fall we feel the sun
less than when the summer had begun
and more than in the winter when its cold
cause being chilly gets real old
But even more than snow and ice
Autumn brings us Pumpkin Spice!

Share Your World 2022: 10 October

Melanie hosts the weekly sharing session: https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.wordpress.com/2022/10/10/share-your-world-10-10-2022/
As always the questions are thought-provoking and bring forth feelings and questions that may otherwise lay dormant under the facade we call life.


  • Can we really know everything? absolutely not!
  • Where were people before they were born? nowhere, they didn’t exist
  • Does the Law of Attraction exist?  (Law of Attraction as I understand it) is a school of thought where positive thinking brings about good changes.  Some say it’s made them wealthy.  Others say it improves their health or their outlook on life) I think to an extent this is true. When you are overly negative you seem to see the negative things around you where as when you are positive you are able to see the beauty and good things in life. I don’t think if is a proven theory. I am the type of person who tries to stay positive and look at the good side of things but I have had some real crap to deal with over the last five years let’s say, and I don’t think it was to any fault of my own or brought on by my own negativity. Besides the human loss I have endured I have also lost my career. Did I want to stop teaching? No, but life threw me in different directions and now it isn’t a possibility unless other circumstances decide to change. I think I am a good person and I try to do the right thing and help others but do I have money that shows this? Absolutely not. I am not saying I don’t have what I need but if the Law of Attraction were definite I feel like I would have more abundance of things that I wish for than what I really have. One of my biggest desires in life is to travel. It isn’t to gain anything other than the experience of what other peoples’ lives hold.
  • Do we love ourselves more in the virtual world and less in the real world?  If so, why?   If nay, why? I do, I think. If I look at myself from an outsider’s point of view, let’s say the virtual world, I see myself differently than when I look in the mirror and my insecurities.


Are you happy? I try to be, really, really try hard. I. guess I am mostly. I am definitely thankful for all I have and I don’t ever want to take it for granted but am I happy? I guess it depends on how happy and sad you can be at the same time to still say you are one or the other.

Can you move forward?

What do you do when the siblings you knew
Went off in a tiff and wanted nothing with you?
Do you fight for the chance to hug and to meet
or do you ignore one another out on the street?
Who says that they’re right and that you are still wrong?
All the thoughts and emotions, a mind staying strong
Is there really a point to all this distress?
Why not forgive and forget and be done with the mess?
But not all those involved are willing to see
that things that have happened were just meant to be
and moving along on the track we call life
brings about more of the happiness filled with less strife.
The saddest part now is that so much has been done
so many harsh words where only one sides begun
to realize our lives are too short to be thrown
and the other side won’t share the blame there is to own.
