Life is good! Life is inspirational!

Impetuous

Impetuous is my middle name
An impromptu affair
That loves the spur of the moment
Loving life with no care
Looking for fun and a challenge
With adventures to explore
Laughing when dancing in the rain
For the now is so much more

But will the now catch up with me
Will it cease to be a craze
Will it offer less as time goes by
Will it cease to then amaze
For now is great and that’s just fine
But maybe then is best
For isn’t looking forward great
And all part of life’s zest?

So impulsive may suit me fine
And living in the now
But maybe there is so much more
If only I allow
A little time to think and plan
To wait expectantly
For delayed gratification
To kick in instantly

Time

Judgement Day

The net is getting tighter
Like a noose around his neck
So soon he’ll have no place to hide
As no box will be unchecked
For when all’s done and all is said
The truth always come out
And when it does he’ll hang himself
Without a shade of doubt
Not by what he may well have done
But moreso where he’s failed
To do the right time; act fairly
Not covered up his trail
Of lies; deceit; abuse; neglect
Call it what you may
For at the time of reckoning
It will be his judgement day!

Reprimanded!

Downward Spiral

She stands and shouts
She rants and raves
She reprimands
And then depraves
The innocent
No care at all
For the upset
Nor the downfall
That leaves her victim
Mouth aghast
Devalued from
The public blast
Bruised and bereft
In state of shock
From this onslaught
That takes no stock
Nor quietly seeks
To sort things out
Without the need
To stand and shout

Life’s Mountains

I stood and saw a mountain
It loomed ahead so tall
Blocking the way, or so it seemed
Just like a huge brick wall

It soared right up into the clouds
So steep; so very high
A massive mountain in the mist
That stood against the sky

Ahead a single track of sorts
Uneven and quite rough
Covered in rocks and scree and stones
That said ‘Give Up – it’s tough’

Yet somewhere in the distance
A small ray of light shone through
That lured me to just carry on
To head towards the blue

So small it seemed insignificant
Yet with magnetic might
It pulled me; drew me onwards til
The end came into sight

A magnet that we might call ‘will’
The will to win; succeed
That failed to let me quit or stop
As will became a need

And need became persistence
Determined to achieve
To battle on and reach the top
Inspired to just believe

Believe that any mountain that
We face will fade away
When mind and body join as one
To win through day on day

  

Opportunity

Every word that we speak
Every thought we hold back
Every action we do
Sets indelible tracks
And marks that are etched
On the minds and the hearts
Of those we hold dear
Plus those set apart
So that at the end
When we breathe our last breath
We’ll be sure that our legacy
Will survive past our death
So we’ll know that our life
Has been lived; no regret
With no shame nor missed chance
As none should forget
That an olive branch offered
May be the last that we see
If we don’t accept it with honour
And integrity
And that opportunity wasted
Is washed away in our tears
So make the most of your life
And enjoy every year

Schools build libraries
But it’s at home each book is

Perfectly Imperfect

Perfectly imperfect
Is just the way to be
Despite the pressures every day
To be so perfectly
Flawless and faultless
So spot on
Against the human grain
That says “to err is human” so
Why do we even feign
To be perfection’s partner
To have, to look, to do
Excellence when that’s just a myth
That leaves us in a stew
For really striving at our best is
What it’s all about
And that’s the focus I would say
Is perfect to shout out!
