"Tackle"

"Tackle Whatever Lies In Your Way"
"Tackle Whatever Lies In Your Way" | Source

A Man comes into this world with the two feet he was given at birth...

And from that point on...He must stand on them...and give it all he's worth !

Mind you...It ain't easy...No one promised him it would be a bunch of rose gardens...

Give it all ya' got..."Man-up!"...Think about this...Steel is pliable until it finally hardens.

Men of old...'til those here now...

Have Led the way...Have showed us how.

What is this that I try to say?

"Tackle" Everything that gets in your way !

"Tackle" the problem that confronts you most...

Shake off that which haunts you like a ghost.

A Man Can Stand...

High Above the Land.

And may proclaim ...That He has "Tackled" that which got in his way...

But, only if He Stood His Ground...Can ya' get the jest of what I say ?

We are "Men of this Time"...Do not take it lightly...

All Men must take a Stand...I'm not asking politely.

Many have and many will...

Many go out every day and "Tackle" still.

Oh...But what doth this crazy "Manly" Poet have to say...Anyway...

"That A Man...All Men...Were born to vaporize obstacles everyday.

And Me...A Man...What can I say ?

I will Conquer that which will Get in My Way...

I will "Tackle" all obstacles...I promise you...On this day."

So what more can this Kooky "Manly" Poet then hope to add or still say ?

A Silly Point...For a "Manly" Poet to say...Anyway...One Point before I let this topic retire...

I mean to make no boast...Humor Me...I like "Manly" Words put together to Inspire.

"Tackle" your World around you..."Man-up" then...On this day...

Laugh at the things that hold you back...And then go blow those things away !



For a Man "Tackles"...all the things that lie in the way...

And I have "Tackled"...Everything...On this Day !

"Not that left foot...Your Other Left Foot! What's wrong with you? Your Mama isn't here to label your shoes Left and Right...like before...Right? I better not catch you looking down at your boots after I said that...or that proves I'm right!"

Quote from (Retired) U.S.M.C. Gunnery Sergeant R. Lee Ermey in "Full Metal Jacket" (1987)

"I am Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, your Senior Drill Instructor. From now on you will speak only when spoken to, and the first and last words out of your filthy sewers will be "Sir". Do you maggots understand that?"
