I send you this message “My Way” because it’s the only way I know…
By using the right words you can accomplish most anything.
My Choice of Words
The right words used the right way
Could possibly save a life today.
By the same token words can leave a life broken
In the way that they’re written or spoken.
Handle all powerful words with great care.
The very same words bring happiness or despair.
These are just a few words I use everyday.
I use these words to give meaning to what I say.
Love, compassion, understanding and care.
Peace, motivation, comfort, joy and prayer.
Smile, laughter, happiness and serenity.
I try my very best not to use profanity.
I use words that are simple and easy to say.
I try to make each word an impression in some way.
Sometimes without thinking I say the wrong thing.
My heart knows right away the hurt it will bring.
On this keyboard I type words for everyone to read.
I hope to give them meaning and some pleasure indeed.
I try to be careful in all that I say in my rhymes.
I want to touch your heart, activate and motivate your minds.
Songs, short stories, and poetry are my hobby you see.
They’re not the best but they come from the heart of me
If I can paint a picture that you can plainly see.
Then I’ve made all my words go to work for me
If the words that I use are truly what you’d like to hear.
And if they bring you comfort make you laugh and give cheer.
Then behind my keyboard you’ll find a man who is really content.
And I’ll know that my careful choice of words was well spent.
Poetry is a form of art, therefore it must do what all art does.
Represent something of the world, express emotion, please us by its form, and stand on its own.
TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND GO ON
Don’t ever let it get you down and never say give up.
Not everything is fair and just, some things are corrupt.
Traveling down the road of life can at times get mighty tough.
But it’s up to you to see things through and face it when it’s rough.
Have you ever wondered why complexities always follow you.
You must be honest and ask yourself is it something that you do.
Life is what you make of it good and bad is caused by you..
Never put the blame on someone else for the trials you go through.
Be glad you’re capable of handling the challenges in your life.
Face the day with truth and courage and you’ll handle stress and strife,
You can’t always take the detour that goes around lives tragedies.
So fix each problem as it finds you then you can travel where you please.
