3 Ingredients of Fire

A guy once told me to bend my hat.
He didn't like the way I was wearing it flat.
My style he did not admire.
I guess he thought I was an upstanding guy;
yet, he was scared I was steering awry.
I didn't tell him all about fire.

Well, here's the thing about that hat.
Girls never seemed to notice me before that.
Or at least, I didn't notice them noticing me.
But, when I would wear that hat around
With bill all flat,
Girls would smile,
Some would laugh,
And I'm sure it was because of that hat.
At first I was happy;
Then, I was sad.
But, here's my epiphany
about this hat that I had.
Now, I have their attention,
And I've set their mood right.
That's 2 of 3 ingredients
For a fire to light.
All I need is to just let it breathe.
Bring some fresh air into the scene.
That's the last secret of fire.

HealthyWage Challenge Day 60

Weight 153.8 lbs I forgot to log yesterday (Day 59). The only junk food I ate yesterday was two 16 oz teas (56 grams of sugar total). I ate the usual breakfast, a Greek Salad for lunch and Salmon with potatoes for dinner. Today, however, I ate some junk food for dinner (two slices of pizza and 1 and half sodas). It was my strength day today. I did my 2 mile walk and the usual strength building exercises. I was probably on pace to set my lightest weight record for the challenge tomorrow before I ate that pizza. Join...

Wishing I Was Free

I heard the wind tell a whisper
About me again.
I heard the ocean answer back,
Said I was "wishing, wishing",
Wishing I was free,
Oh!, like the wind,
Wishing I was free just like the wind.

How do they know me?!
They can't see me in my home!
How do they know me?
'Guess they see I'm all alone.
Oh, I'm trapped up in my mind.
You can see it in my eyes;
But mostly,
You can feel in my vibes.

I heard a bullfrog laughing at me
As I was walking by,
And clouds are writing messages
About me in the sky.
I wish I had some wings
So I could fly away;
Fly away, and leave my pain behind.

How do they know me?!
They can't see me in my home!
How do they know me?
'Guess they see I'm all alone.
Oh, I'm trapped up in my mind
You can see it in my eyes
But mostly,
You can feel in my vibes.

Music’s The Unstoppable Power

Music is my lantern.
Sometimes, it seems to be
The only unstoppable force within me.
Yes, the flame does flicker.
Yes, the flame does waver.
Thus, is its nature
To vary and add suspense and some flavor.
But when the rest of me has died,
I hear the music echo
From inside my soul's empty container;
Music is the only remainder.
There's nothing else in there
To absorb or deaden;
So, the music just grows,
Getting brighter and louder.
Flames start catching and spreading,
Soon shooting,
Spitting a shower,
A flame flume flow flower.
Music's the unstoppable power.
