Spinning Plates

Spinning Plates

Life can be like spinning plates
Complete a task, one more awaits
So take your time and don’t rush in
No stopping things once they begin

Decisions must be made each day
Take care of what you choose to say
But don’t stay silent, that won’t do
Some work is waiting just for you

And lazy people must beware
Of simply sitting with no care
For one day time has flown away
Then only age will have its way

Take action now and make your plan
The race so long ago began
You know it’s just the fool who waits
Success may come from spinning plates

Life Won’t Wait

Life Won’t Wait

 

Take these words, as from a mate
The simple fact is: life won’t wait
Each day will come and go in turn
Some wasted it whilst others learn

Read on and work with what you must
Don’t be a slave to greed or lust
More precious days await the mind
Which grows beyond the lost and blind

Another clue from life’s rich field
With changing views, then life may yield
If stuck then nothing moves at all
The horse still waiting in its stall

And countless moves are played each day
The game of life won’t go away
So take your place and plan your fate
For anyone, this life won’t wait
