Round After Round

Another Chance To Make It Right

As my day fills up with little problems

Ones that I did not anticipate or calculate

I ponder and wonder

Where could they have come from ?

They weren't there a minute ago

I work hard on doing things right

Many times giving a little extra when nobody notices

Reminding myself as long as I know that is all that matters

Learning not to disappointed at day to day results

It's the overall totals that really make the difference

Refocusing if need be

Thinking a little more clearly

I have always known the difference between right and wrong

There is no need to change now

Keep doing what I feel in my heart to be true

The news and the few people you watch can leave you with disbelief

Turn to a higher power that has always guided you out of all trouble

Confident now as good new thoughts replace a negative impulse

Tired when I shouldn't be

Resting my eyes and body as needed

Dreaming of solid ground

Where I walk it will never crumble

Loving the life that is so special

Caring for others comes so naturally

Building up steem and turning it into power

I am back on the right track

Looking ahead not watching my back

Making small changes always helps

Progress is so important

History repeats itself

The good will prevail

The bad will be wiped out easy by an eraser on a chalk board

Lifitng all the bad words and phrases all people think

Once seen now removed with little effort

The good can be displayed and recognized

It represents the best of all mankind

Hi dream-on.

Comes so naturally knowing and doing right -(eously): speak clean language , not reacting to evil challenges ; those watching will notice touched by smile or tiny kindness; good is above all powerful when repaying for evil.

Voted up and useful .
