Yes, Let's Do it!

Let's do it!
Let's live our lives to the fullest.
Let's bask in the sun with no clothes on,
Let's remember the good times long gone.
Let's enjoy this time together while we can,
for we never know when its our last.
Let's kiss and laugh and love,
let's joke around, fool around,
and forget the things that bring us down.
Let's start a party in the streets,
in City Park, and New Orleans.
Let's be free for once in our lives, completely free.
Free from the system, the mind controlling.
Let's just do what we want and be happy.
Let's dance, and dream, and make them all come true.
Let's live in the moment, take a chance or two.
Let's be courteous and kind,
Let's live a life sublime.
A life so great that when we die,
we will truly accept that its our time.
Let's finally know peace,
in a world full of hate and greed.
and let us not falter from these ways,
Let's be true to ourselves all of our days.
Let's strive to be better, to make a difference,
and to make the whole world listen.
That we the people stand united,
one nation, under God, undivided,
with liberty and justice for all,
we will not fall.

Thank you sligobay for taking the time to check it out. I thought it might have been of interest when I read your hub We the People. Which I saw after writing this.

Thanks damian and bella! I have missed getting comments from you! Glad you liked it. Yes that is what life should be about, but many times we lose sight of that. The world can be a hard place to always have that mindset, but we are strong willed and strong hearted. We can do it, so let's!

Hi Nikki. I was pleased to be the first to comment on this Hub. I clicked on the link you left but HubPages did a disconnect and I needed to find you through your profile page. I'm glad I did. I like the way you think.

Morning Nikki.

You've been missed.

An awesome hub, but unfortunately I fear this world was not made for peace.

UP and sharing.

Finally over 70 degrees. You're right, time to take off our clothes and celebrate the rites of spring! "Live a life sublime..." For sure, it's time.

Thank you everyone for the awesome comments, yes Ed, you inspired me :) I really loved that poem but my fave is still "He's heard it all before" which inspired me as well. Cleaner, glad I can inspire you!

Ghaelach, no I am afraid this world is not made for peace. well the world itself was, but people in general have corrupted it by giving into greed and selfishness and hate.

Kenja, welcome! Yes the weather is getting much warmer, time to go skinny dipping! Lets bear it all. Not just our clothes but our insecurities, our closed hearts and minds, lets open them. and yes, live, a life sublime.

What a very beautiful positive and optimistic poem, Nikki. Honestly, this might be the most beautiful thing you have ever written. I know you are talented but... wow.... :)

This is more than a great hub. It's an offering and a request - a beseeching plea for kindness and tolerance and understanding. It's a Nikki Jordan "I had a Dream" moment. The message is very universal and applies to us all.

Hugs from me today. :)

Thank you, Ian and Cathy. Hope you will live by these words. Or at least try.

Carpe Diem taken to the extreme! To live otherwise only brings regrets. Great sentiments and great job, Nikki!

Nikki, my beloved, I have heard that you and drbj are collecting largish stones, loading them in a donkey cart, and making for my home. Should we batten down the hatches at Twilight Lawns plc or do we, as Eulalia Hawkins (Mrs) suggests, hide in the cellar and allow Ghastly Prendy to shower you with roof slates?


Nikkij504gurl profile image

Nikkij504gurl 3 years ago from Louisiana Author

ha that sounds like an adventure! of epic proportions. I dont think I want to piss old Prendy off or Eulalia for that matter. Ill keep my stones to myself as long as you promise to live young like those at Twilight Lawns plc.

This is a inspiring poem! We all hold back what we really want for the things that we think we need. If everyone would just cut loss every once and a while we would all be better off! Voted up.

Great to re-visit this piece Nikki... you have a really nice beat and cadence running through it which gives it spark and vitality and makes it dance a little ;-)

I signed up to this allpoetry site.. it is a lot different to hubpages and i haven't quite worked it out but i do this soon --- very curious to see what new work you have been producing.. :-)
