You Get What You Give...

A Poem

You Get What You Give...

Together, we can grow strong.

What if there was no tomorrow ?

We only had today.

Would we still live these lives in the same old ways ?

Would we act cruel to those that we love ?

Would we finally believe in a God above ?

We have to use our time before it’s gone.

Why’s it such a struggle for us to get along ?

It’s time the Human Race proved ourselves wrong.

Let's take time to learn…

Together, We Can Grow Strong.

Together, We Can Grow Strong.

They say...

'All Things Come To Those That Wait’

I say ’ What About Time Lost Waiting’

We spend our days always looking ahead…

It seems we are forever waiting.

Waiting for money, for love, for a chance…

Waiting for a dream to come true.

If we don’t step back look at our lives today.

Before we know it it’ll all be through.

We have to use our time before it’s gone.

Why’s it such a struggle for us to get along.

It’s time the Human Race proved ourselves wrong.

Let's take time to learn…

Together, We Can Grow Strong.

Together, We Can Grow Strong.

For our days they pass...

So fast, like the roll of a wheel.

The more they pass...

The less we feel.

The less we remember...

About what is real.

Real to us...

Important to us…

About stupid things we continue to fuss.

We must learn one by one as we live…

Each man wants to take…

He won’t learn until he gives.

We have to use our time before it’s gone.

Why’s it such a struggle for us to get along.

It’s time the Human Race proved ourselves wrong.

Let's take time to learn…

Together, We Can Grow Strong.

Together, We Can Grow Strong.

So you don’t have this, you don’t have that.

Look at what you already possess.

You have so very much inside yourself.

You just ooze Faithlessness.

We may only have today so don’t waste time.

Nothing is forever in anybody’s lifetime.

Just look inside yourself, You will see.

All you need is the will to set you free.

We have to use our time before it’s gone.

Why’s it such a struggle for us to get along.

It’s time the Human Race proved ourselves wrong.

Let's take time to learn…

Together, We Can Grow Strong.

Together, We Can Grow Strong.

If there is someone you love...

Please tell them today.

That grudge you bear...

Keep it in yesterday.

The one that you’ve lost...

Be thankful they were there.

If you’re lost and confused...

Believe the answers out there.

You can believe in me...

For I have been through the wars.

I’ve been lost in the storm...

Awoken washed up on the shores.

You must find your own answers...

Learn as you live.

But ALWAYS remember...

You get, what you give !

We have to use our time before it’s gone.

Why’s it such a struggle for us to get along.

It’s time the Human Race proved ourselves wrong.

Let's take time to learn…

Together, We Can Grow Strong.

Together, We Can Grow Strong.

I have been writing Poetry since I was a teenager. Now in my late thirties I enjoy it more than ever. I find it a wonderful release and it helps me to free my mind and understand myself and my emotions.
