Never Claimed

I’ve never claimed to be something I’m not. 

If you’re waiting to watch me fall take your shot.

I’m human… imperfect, but fearfully made.

You know what they say about the plans best laid.

We’re here for just moments and then we are gone.

I have bigger things to think of as I’m moving on.

I’m not angry or bitter just stating a fact.

If you’re busy watching me then who’s watching YOUR back?

So stay in your drama and I’ll stay in mine.

I never claimed to be perfect, and I know I’ll be fine.

*** I would like to interject that in the majority of my writing I attempt to focus on the positive.  I’ve never been one who likes to focus on the negative, although sadly I do know that the negative exists.  Let’s just say that I’ve had a bad day.  I’m guessing most of us have experienced one of these.

    One of those today,Amanda! I’ve been working diligently the last month or more on getting my house in order ( inside and out) for the arrival of my half sister and her family whom I haven’t seen in 30 yrs +! By 8:30 am I am working outside in my flower beds that I have literally made a ‘cripple’ of myself by digging up sod,planting flowers,carrying ‘rich’ dirt by shovelfuls and placing rock until it gets so hot that I have to come inside and start working! I painted the bathroom today,yippee! When someone comes in from work(and i’m not mentioning names here),because i’m not jumping up and down with joy,i’m “supposedly mad” ’cause I have “that certain look on my face” and an argument follows! My body tells me I really have accomplished something today but my mind says otherwise! Enough said! Hope tomorrow is better for the both of us!!!
