Stopped

Out of Order sign

“Out of Order”

The sign said

I didn’t

Like what

I just read

It made me

“Out of Order”

Syllabic Verse

Shopping, rushing to the restroom, stopped by this sign. Stand there and stare blankly for a minute, regroup thoughts, make a plan B and move on.

On a long walk, so thirsty, remember there’s drinking fountain at the park, but a sign says….”Out of Order”–(plan B again)

So tired of walking around the Mall, friend wants to go to the food court on the third level, head to the elevator, but…guess what!!!

I am sure we can all relate to having those “Out of Order” days. They are not fun but they sure slow us down and make us think! 😊

Have You Ever?

Sailing ship on calm water

Have you ever been told “No!”

Stopped when you wanted to go

Denied passage within

Rejected for the color of your skin

Refuted for something you’ve said

Sought friendship but were scorned instead

Vetoed for taking a stand

Mocked for the goals you’ve planned

Nothing but bills in the mail

Everything you try seems to fail

You’re not alone my friend

I’ve gone round and round that bend

Someday our ships will come in

Someday it’ll be our turn to win!

Rhyme

“Never, Ever, Give Up!”
