“KEEP IT UP; YOU MIGHT BE RIGHT.” a poem 3 Nov 2019 [Sunday]
If you think that you’re doing kind of your best,
HOLD TO THAT COURSE, and know that Life likes to test,
You for: AMUSEMENT? or REFINEMENT? or WhoKnowsWhat.
Occasionally, people might kick you in the butt,
And, then, say they’re sorry or “ItHurtsMeMoreThanYou,” but take it with a grin,
And forget about LOSING or TRYING to WIN.
If there’s any winning around here, it’s just about BEING SOMEWHAT HAPPY,
Amidst all the circumstances, both glorious and crappy.
IF in the MOST DIFFICULT circumstances, you can just sit and relax,
and NOT have to “unload on anyone,” well, you’re doing great, and don’t tax,
Yourself too much, trying to please anyone who wants you to do better.
SMILE and let THEM be a nervous hyena;
You be an Irish Setter.
