Victories (A Great Reminder)

Sometimes the greatest victories

are won through courage,

sacrifice, pain & sorrow,

Don’t give up hope in the

midst of your storm

Be thankful for your yesterdays,

todays & tomorrows

Ultimately, decided to take the advice I was given regarding this blog, and not retire it (as you can see) I did have a pretty sweet break & am actually very refreshed.

I’ll just write when I have the most time, highest energy & best inspiration.

Stubborn Streak

John he was a dreamer, from an early age

had grit, and a stubborn streak five miles long

anyone would say,

Bound & determined,

worked his fingers til they bled

got barely a few hours of sleep each night

Said: “I’ll sleep more when I’m dead”

He plowed on full steam ahead

rarely looking back

When his dreams came to fruition,

and anybody asked,

if it was worth the sacrifices along the way

He’d just grin, and say “Oh, yeah”

Chariots Of War

In an ancient valley there lived a noble king

The people of his kingdom loved him so

of his goodness they would sing

One day there came men & mighty horses

& chariots of war,

That noble king did something

He’d never done before,

He girded up for battle,

a spear, armor & a sword

and he marched ahead of his army

to beat back the hordes of evil at his door,

In the heat of battle though,

the noble king he died

Gave his final breath

so that his people could survive

Delia

Delia was a young girl, born in a city near the Rio Grande

Her Daddy was an agricultural man, Always just doing the best he can

By the time Delia was eight years old, She joined him working her time away

Hardly had the chance to go to school, barely rested or even played

She worked hard, sweating in the heat

but oh, she never complained,

She had callouses on her hands, blisters on her feet

She would do anything she could

To help her family make ends meet

Coming Home To Stay

Thirty thousand feet above the ground

Staring out a window, looking down

Flying over the Astrodome,

he can’t wait to get back home,

It seems his family always ends up waiting there,

cause he’s got another deal to make elsewhere,

He told them, “This time I’m coming home to stay, I swear”

He has flashbacks of his daughter, at four years old,

w/pink ribbons in her hair

now she’s graduating college & he wants to be there

He knows her growing up without him hasn’t been fair
