Oh, Men of Deeds…Not Word






Oh, Great and Solid Men…who stand like Mountains on this planet…

The Ones who came before us…who's feet were firmly planted !

You know them by their Actions…more than any other thing…

Men of substance that stand out…Measured by the type of game they "bring" ,

Like an Oak that still stands by the shore after a hurricane…

Or an Earthen Dam that held after a torrential amount of rain,

These Men of Deed speak volumes…when they have not said a word,

Do you find this so amazing…Am I speaking of the absurd?

A great Man is not attributed by what he says…though it certainly helps.

He makes his statement loud and clear by what he does…not by puppy whelps !

Anyone can talk…and thus by talking…make themselves great…

However, Men of Deed are measured by Actions …Not by boasts that always inflate.

Men of Deed speak softly…and carry a “Big Stick” (*)...

Men of Words alone…often run when trouble comes…They run away quick !

Oh But...Men of Deed stand there ground...

Often...when no one else is anywhere to be found !

Men of Deed...And A Few Well Put Words!

Oh...of Great Men of Deed...

That arrive just in time at our hour of need.

Do not hasten...when you have decided your course...

You are at your best...when things are at there worst.

Vanquish the enemy before you...Stay true to what must get done...

No one promised you a rose garden...you're not in it just for fun.

While others talk and contemplate...

You forge ahead...and Charge against perceived destiny's fate !

When others balk...and drag their feet...

You make sure the rubber meets the street !

Oh, Men of Deed...Not Words...Thank you for taking control at your appointed hour...

Stick to your guns...and not empty promises...Words alone can swiftly sour.

But you...have set action as the solution...by your steadfast determination...

Men of Deed have striven in the past...to bring us to this ultimate fruition.

Who is to say...whether each Men of Deed should've turned left...should've turned right ?

Just thank your lucky stars.and heaven above...when you lay your weary head down this night.

That Men before you...Performed with Deed...instead of talking about things forever and a day...

I know that I'm damn glad for them...those Men of Deed...that were there to help pave the way.

Consider the consequences of things left to chance and thorough discussion analysis...

It plants more seeds for wanton attacks for those who sit in "wishy-washy" paralysis.

I call upon you...Men of Deeds...Not Words; I have seen so many here in this generation...

No time to render out a why...Men of Deeds be ready...I know you need no further explanation.

No Monday Morning Quarterbacks here...Men of Deed "Git R' Done"(**)...when "Failure is not an Option"(***)...

Men of Deed...Forget all the talk, talk, talk...Just go ahead and put your plan right into motion !

Speaking of Apollo 13...These are the Men who took Action...to make it Home safely. Though alot of smart minds were working through all the problems they faced...back on Earth. These were the guys who had to put it all into Action!

Final Thought: Don't Ever Forget What Real Men Of Action Are Capable Of:
