If you could try to see

Life in terms of abstract

Oh the fun you’ll attract

As the reward

Your smile may be suspect

Others may stop and stare

Some may glower and glare

Blow them a kiss

For unless they allow

There’s a chance of more fun

When logic’s on the run

Why is why not

Cloud Burst

A summer lightning bolt

Announcing the thunder

Quick, take cover under

Nearby shelter

And as the rain does fall

In puddles all around

Happy the grateful ground

To have a drink

With Love

Know this, my dear sister

I want nothing from you

I wish the best for you

Only ever

The only change I seek

Where your life is concerned

Your horseshoes be upturned

Thank you for the detours

Altering chosen route

Belief it will work out

Makes it all right

For when twists become turns

It can shake us up, ture

And wonder what to do

Take a deep breath

You can fight it or let

Your adventurous side

Say hey, enjoy the ride

I’ve got your back

Macro Manage

Sometimes, it takes some time

To see results you crave

Still, you must be brave

And stay the course

You’ve gone and made a plan

Each step along the way

Just take it day by day

Without worry

Persistence is your friend

You’ll shed those happy tears

When solid proof appears

Effort paid off
