Allow Yourself To Fight

Poet: Julie Hebert, 2012

There are some days you may feel,
As if things just aren't going right.
No amount of attempts to avoid,
You step into the big mud puddle despite!

On these days to give up would be easy,
You'd like to just walk away.
And sometimes taking a step back,
May be exactly the right way.

But at a point you'll have to decide,
If you're going to let them win.
This is the time that you'll look deep inside,
And see if you have it within.

When you are ready to take the next step,
And show that you are ready to fight.
Avoid what you can and it's okay if you can't,
Cause know matter what, you'll be all right.

Editors Note - On the days I feel like giving up, on the days I feel like I have stepped into a big puddle, I read the wisdom of Anthony Robins. He said, "Sometimes, things don't work out exactly as planned - but if you trust in the cycle of the seasons, you know that in the long term you will reap the harvest you have sown." These words encourage me to keep going, to not to quit. Sometimes it just takes time to achieve the goals you are working towards. And we all have setbacks as we move toward achieving our goals. We cannot let these setbacks or challenges stop us. Keep moving forward!

You Can Do It
by Jerry Aragon, Ph. D. (Phunny humor Doctor)

Peer pressure is not just for teenagers!
The ugly face of peer pressure will follow us all to the grave,
by those who would have us go in a different direction with our lives!

So, decide what you want in life,
and don't let anyone distract you from reaching your goals and your dreams!

Better Days Are Coming
by Wish Belkin, 2001

If you fear losing somebody you love
like rejection would be no surprise
even if they never said it out loud
you just knew by the look in their eyes
accept that anxiety is due to some action
we took while sleepwalking through life
we would be lying if we tried denying
we cause our own misery and strife.

There is a voice inside of our heads
that tells us of what is to come
deja vu turned upside down
is what it may seem like to some
whether it's foresight or just premonition
it leaves you feeling quite strange
whisper or shout, it allows for no doubt
that your fortunes are due for a change.

The cyclical nature of the human condition
prevents us from being at ease
it bars the door to the peace that we seek
it's a lock without any keys
hope and fear are two sides of a coin
a little like Abel and Cane
it's not every day that just one will hold sway
in the end it adds up to the same.

Listen to this then, if you should find
your emotions won't give you a breather
I'm telling you, dreams don't often come true
but the nightmares rarely do either.

How To Make A Mountain Out Of A Molehill

Poet: Alessandra Liverani,, 2005

First you must pick your molehill, now here's a tip
The smaller the better, tinier than the tiniest microchip
From this speck you can conjure mountainous masses
Of soaring peaks dropping into bottomless crevasses

Slippery slopes, treacherous overhangs, avalanches
Whipped up as quickly as fluffy blancmanges
Glaciers forwardly creeping destroying as they go
Even if they do it at a speed immeasurably slow

The mountain forged from the molehill, easily soldered
Can the molehill from the mountain so easily be moulded?
I don't think you can hack it down with an axe
The best way I can think of is to just relax

True words of wisdom by the Poet, Alessandra Liverani. Many times we do make a mountain out of a molehill.
