New Year...New "Tude" 2011 is a good number!

Sunday, January 02, 2011

Thoughts and dreams, holding on tight,

No matter how hard, donít give up the fight.

The tears start to fall with pressure and pain,

Keep pressing on and get rid of that shame.

Smile for you and keep yourself strong,

Things will work out, youíre not always wrong.

Wipe those eyes and pick up your head,

The worldís still turning and you are not dead.

Believe in your heart, keep your spirits alive,

Donít doubt yourself, you will survive.

You are loved even if you donít see,

Keep your personality, that is the key.

Be yourself, do what you do,

Maybe people will get the clue.

Ignore those put-downs no matter how hard,

Forgive your enemies, send them a card.

Encourage others, be a good friend,

In doing good things, there is no end.

Things can go wrong and make you feel low,

Itís good not to dwell, you can let it go.

Say you can do it and not that you canít,

You could be famous and people could chant.

You could go to the moon and fly past the stars,

You could get your famous name driving race cars.

You could act on a stage or do ballet,

You could be a mother to say ďIt will be OKĒ.

You could fight fires or work in a zoo,

You can follow your dreams, itís all up to you.

Pain and fear is all part of life every day,

You can do it if you want and you say.

Every problem will pass, keep holding on,

The scars from the past will soon be gone.

Love who you are and keep your chin up,

One day you will really know the meaning

of a golden prize cup.
