Anyway

Updated on March 22, 2014

Anyway

I love people who can't carry a tune,

but sing anyway,

I love people who can't dance,

but dance anyway,

I love people who can't run,

but trot down the road anyway,

I love people who can't paint,

but put the paint on thick-

life is an act of faith;

perfection does not come,

but, in the trying,

perhaps we become illuminated,

in trying,

Preachers rarely write good poems.

But, poetry is an act of faith,

one must try,

anyway.

      LOVE THIS! Unique, balanced, striking, insightful and memorable. The simple 'frame' for the "inabilities" gives added strength (&a touch of humour) to the whole piece. Well done.

      Hey Will! You've been around forever and Know Stuff,,,,,,,,at one point I was a Level 7. Now I'm a Level 2. I feel shunned and unloved. Is it my deodorant? Have I offended Big Brothwe? Help me Will!

      Hi Moonfroth!

      I was a level 8, but they lowered me too, probably because I'm not as active as I once was. No one I know has any idea how the grading system works here. My Hubber score is down to an 83!
