They Said—I Said

Big tree

They said “Just give in”

They said “You’ll never get far”

They said “ You won’t win”

They said “Just give in”

They said “ Don’t even begin”

They said “Who you think you are?”

They said “Just give in”

They said “You’ll never get far”

I said “ I won’t give in”

I said “ I’ll make it someday”

I said “ I will soon win”

I said “ I won’t give in”

I said “ I will begin”

I said “ I will soon find a way”

I said “ I won’t give in”

I said “ I’ll make it someday”

Double Triolet

Written to all the Naysayers from a Yaysayer

“Never Ever Give Up!” “Stand Tall” “Grow”

(When I saw this huge tall tree on my walk the other day these thoughts came to mind)

Life’s Tapestry

Tapestry
Weaved with the color of joy

Stained with the color of pain

Threads that hope does employ

Weaved with the color of joy

Moments of small things that annoy

Seasons filled full with rain

Weaved with the color of joy

Stained with the color of pain

Moments time can’t destroy

Memories that always remain

A perfect pattern they deploy

Moments time can’t destroy

Our private life convoy

Showing exciting and mundane

Moments time can’t destroy

Memories that always remain
