Take Action

                                 Take Action

I’m an older version of who I was at seventeen.

Trying to forget where I’ve been and what I’ve seen.

Finding joy to the left and to the right.

To these old eyes is quite a sight.

Sticks and stones will break your bones.

And words will destroy you.

Fantasize, dream, take action.

Get going while you have traction.

You are what holds you back,

Self esteem you lack.

It was taken away,

It will return one day.

Surround yourself with good,

Life will be  better than you ever thought it could.

Smile, laugh, cry and live,

You have more than you will ever know to give.
