POEMS









There’s many things that I admire,

but mostly things that can inspire.

When people are put to the test,

I like to see them do their best.


I like to see them struggle on,

after most of hope has gone.

For they deserve respect and awe,

when they do not then withdraw.


I like to witness people fight

with all their strength and all their might.

They don’t let problems get them down,

and they rarely fret or frown.


I’ve always had a fascination

and a great appreciation,

for those folk who don’t give up,

even with an empty cup.


I cannot help have high regard,

for people who have lives so hard

that others tend to shy away

and make it clear that they won’t stay.


When things get hard as they can be

for me it creates empathy.

I’ll put myself into their shoes

and fight with them to win or lose.


People have my approbation

coping with exacerbation.

For when things can’t get any worse

that pushes me to write some verse.


So I will give my utmost praise

to those who get through life’s malaise,

and come out on the other side

with some dignity and pride.
