Poem: Am at my Best!

Updated on February 2, 2012

"Am at my best"

When I am

up against

that wall

Am at my best

When I slipped

during that race

When the others

thought I was

going to fall

dead on my face

Am at my best

When the going

Gets tough

Am at my best


That’s when

the tough

Gets going.

Am at my best

When it's time

for a decision

And there is

No place else

I could turn

Am at my best


That’s where

the great ones

will put heads

together and they

quickly learn

Am at my best

When all

seems Lost

Am at my best

For I know

I will get


At any cost

Am at my best

When people say

It can never

be done

Am at my best

When they

believe that

they have me

on the run.

Am at my best

When things

aren't going right

Am at my best

It’s my true colors

You’d see.

Shining bright

Am at my best

When my mother

Needs her son

Am at my best

Dear Mother

Hear I come!

Am ar my best

Ready for any


Am at my best!


From my up coming

Soon to be

      Thanks very much Caroline and such a reinforcing comment . Now you understand why I love the one you put out this morning. That's the reason for my lengthy comment.

      Sometimes all it takes is to walk away and that sometimes shows more strength than standing and engaging. The stress of an unnecessary confrontation hurts more that the actual confrontation itself.

      Bless and sincere thanks.

      Sky I love this poem. Very inspiring. I love how you talk about inner strength. Even when people try to bring us down we can always find that special part of us that makes us strong. Love it!

      That exactly what it is brethren Frank .

      Never let them see you sweat, and don't get caught up in any games that you did not sign up to play , in that way you know you will have fun. That why you usually don't see those predators coming.Hall and Oats says she a "man eater"

      As you have said with me that day ,with the unknown writer. Always remember someone has to do that job too, be sure it's not you.

      Thanks for reading and your always encouraging comment .
