Start the sentence with I, add one of these words or phrases, and dig deep to finish the thought:…..am, want, have, wish, hate, fear, hear, search, wonder, regret, love, ache, always, usually, am not, dance, sing, never, rarely, cry, am not always, lose, am confused, need, should, dream…
Feel free to cut and paste and complete it any way you want. I was going to do a sentence for each of them, but this is what happened instead. Some muse or other took over and a kind of poetry happened.
What Am I?
I am old
But I want to stay young forever.
I have everything I need and yet
I wish for more.
I hate nothing but hate itself
And fear what it can do.
I hear only what I want to hear
And tune out all the rest.
I search inside for peace
And wonder if this is what it feels like.
Regretting nothing, loving fiercely,
Aching for time to slow down
While I’m running out of it.
Usually life makes me happy.
I am not complaining.
Even though I dance awkwardly
And sing off-key.
I never can stay sad for long
And rarely cry about anything
But I am not always brave.
I lose focus and become confused.
I need the quiet to bring things back
So I should appreciate it when it’s all around me.
Sometimes I dream so hard I can’t wake up.
You don’t know what’s going on
You’ve been away for far too long
You can’t come back and think you are still mine
You’re out of touch, my baby
My poor discarded baby
I said, baby, baby, baby, you’re out of time
(The Rolling Stones)
Do you have any friends you regret not keeping in touch with?
If we lost touch with eachother there’s no doubt lots of reasons for that and I don’t have time to dwell on why.
Regret is a useless emotion and a waste of time. It will make you crazy.
So cut it out! Stop, right now, or you’ll end up regretting your regrets.
I’m trying to concentrate on the people who are in my life today so there won’t be any reason for regrets tomorrow.
