The Way to Win


One day a group of boys
Decided to have a race
They chose to climb a great big tree
And set off at a pace

The rest of their friends gathered
To see the boys at play
They talked about it to themselves
"Will they make it?" "No way!"

They called up to the children
"You'll never make it up that tree"
But the boys just kept on climbing
And said "just watch and you will see"

But the others, how they shouted
And thought the boys tried to ignore
They began to drop out one by one
Another, another and then more

But one boy kept on climbing
And made it to the top of the tree
He never lost faith but believed in himself
And said "this won't defeat me"

The others were quite amazed
At the squirrel at the top of the tree
"How on earth did he do it?" they said
"Well", said one, "he's completely deaf, you see"

So the motto of this poem is
You can reach the top of the tree
Just don't listen to what others say
Just believe in yourself and you'll see

Tight:

The poem is truly a reflection of the reality of life.

Here's what I hear all the time: the things people say they are going to do.

Here's what I see all the time: the failure of people to do the things they say they are going to do.

Its hard for me sometimes to discern what they will do and won't they won't or can't. If I say I'm going to do it.....I will do it. Here's what bugs me the most though people asking for that commitment to soemthing I'm not comfortable guaranteeing. I'll back off and admit as much...doesn't mean I'm not going to try. I simply want to explore whether or not its possible. I'd rather leave someone not sure and then come back and say yes than to not deliver.

We all have what I refer to as "dream-busters" in our lives. Sometimes out of jealosy, but more often they are those that love you and fear you being hurt. The ones most fearfull and negative ones seem to be those that love you the most, but they act out of ignorance. Do not let them sway you.
