Time To Try

Time To Try

Time to try, improve our lot
Just look around, see what we’ve got
At times it seems not much success
And then look closely, through the mess

Each day things change and who can tell
What you could make, or find, or sell
A mind awake has every chance
To think again, a second glance

The places you could go aren’t few
A different route, a different view
Keep searching as you find your way
There’s always more to do and say

Ignore the doubters and the fear
A searcher knows the truth is near
No time to wonder how or why
It’s time for action – time to try

Never Quit

Never Quit

Never quit – a new day waits
I know just what the devil hates
A cheerful smile and helpful friends
Who know life never really ends

The fight’s worthwhile, the goal is sure
And countless joys are all in store
Hold on with all you have, my friends
Your life’s much more than current trends

Look deep within whenever you can
For endless is the soul of man
The journey outwards, also in
And from right here it can begin

Don’t doubt potential in yourself
There’s no such thing as ‘on the shelf’
We’re here to try, the fuse is lit
So do your best and never quit
