Worth Fighting For

It’s time to face it. Nothing
can replace grit. Prepare
and get mentally fit. Train
through the pain. Maintain
a winning attitude. Practice
gratitude. Curb the attitude.
Build the strength to fight
what cannot be seen, even
in light. Stay ready and walk
steady. Act like you know
where you’re going. Tonight
is the night you fight. Face
your fears. Punish the past
and fracture the future for
keeping you scared all those
years. Wipe your tears and
break the rear-view mirror.
Now is the time to be strong.
Later is the time to be wrong.


Hide and Seek

In life, we hide the things
we don’t want others to see.
At the start, the end seemed
far. At the end, we couldn’t
tell the two apart. In life,
we seek, search, and want
things and people
out of reach. Life can be
a game of hide and seek.
Some disappear as quickly
as others appear. Some stay
still and are scared to move.
Some dance despite the mood.
In the end, we will find
all that has been hidden.
In the meantime, find time
to unwind as you release
all the things on your mind.

No Worries

Heavy air leaves my mouth,

As I sigh and wonder ‘why’.

I deflate my chest before looking south;

I breathe so heavy up toward the sky.

I wonder and worry, but I’m in no hurry.

Time became rough, but I remain tough.

I sigh and I weep until the hour I sleep.

I feel so bad: the worst feeling to have.

I push on through this life so steep;

This breath I take won’t be my last.

I swim these waters blue and deep

And navigate unknowns without a map.

I aim and miss but still shoot for bliss.

I stumble and stare thru the thin air.

Broke and beat, I never take a seat

I worry a lot but I avoid defeat.

Take away my worries and all of my fears:

Remove my worries for the rest of my years.
