Row Your Boat

Row your boat as fast as you can

The tide is fighting back but you have to try

Try hard and work hard until your arms are sore

The only way to make it is to row your boat

Down

It’s been a long day

My energy is depleted

I don’t feel like moving

I just want to lie down

Rest and sleep

Don’t Talk

Work hard and stay humble

When everyone else casts you aside

Surprise them by not being boastful

Let them talk, that is all they do

Try your hardest and let your achievement do the talking

Shapes

Time to stop the whining 

I have to start winning

Prove to no one I can do this

Prove only to myself I can’t miss

I have to set my mind to working hard

Getting back in shape will such a reward

Easier

Is it easier to hurt than to love?

Easier to promise the stars above

Than to just be kind to the needy.
Is it easier to walk away than to stay?

Easier to promise a better day

Than make one for someone.
Sometimes it’s easier to lose hope than be hopeful

Because the people now have made me doubtful 

And that’s a sad thing, I reckon.

Dig Deep

Try your hardest
Keep your head above water
Be not afraid of danger
Hold your breath and try harder
Dig hard and dig deep

Hard To Get

I spy with my little eye a sparkle

Ignited by a feeling

Fueled by the emotion

An old school girl playing hard to get

Can’t you tell she likes you too?

She just doesn’t want you to see

Make a move, make your move

Or forever hold your tongue

For she will never tell

until you do

It seems you don’t understand

It’s hard for you to get that she wants you

to make the first move

So go on boy, MOVE!

I’m just waiting for you to finally get

what I mean

Hurts Me So

it hurts me so to see you down

I’d want to make you smile

this life is not the one I pictured

where you will be

 

life is full of surprises though

and often times we fall on pot holes

 

but I’ll I fix the tires so on we will go

if we help each other,

tough roads are nothing but a fun roller coaster ride

 

Plain and Simple

if you write straight from the heart

anything can be turned into art

you need not use such big words like

brusque and abjure

or capricious, legerdemain or bonjour

maybe try something like mendacious, licentious

the there’s penurious, officious; maybe even propitious

I scratch my head for I know not the meaning of these words

I’m better off sitting and watching all the wonderful birds

in writing, it’s nice to be colorful

but most of the time, I’d like to keep it plain and simple

Words from a Little Person

Poets bleed from the heart and soul
