Poem Friday » 7/23/2010


Nothing Today
author: Lesley Voth

Well here it is wonderful Friday again.
And I am under some mental strain.

What am I going to write and say
I cannot think of a poem today

I really don’t know which way to go
My imagination and words won’t flow

The well has run dry
I have no idea why

Nothing comes to mind
A word, a reason I cannot find

Oh I guess there is always next Friday
By then I will have something to well, hopefully, say
When the words will flow in a simple philosophical way
Have a wonderful weekend, have a wonderful day.

I have found a poem but I did not write it. I thought it was worthy of sharing with you.

When things go wrong…

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,

When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,

When the funds are low and the debts are high,

And you want to smile but you have to sigh,

When care is pressing you down a bit

Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Success is failure turned inside out,

The silver tint on the clouds of doubt,

And you can never tell how close you are,

It may be near when it seems afar.

So, stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit

It’s when things go wrong that you mustn’t quit.
