Put Up Or Shut Up

There comes a time in everyone's life

Where we have said things and believed them to be true

Now in the position we talked about we have to prove

Talk is cheap

As men we have to stand our ground

Follow our beliefs right or wrong

The day may come where we have to admit we were wrong

Until that time

We push on

Give it all we have and find it in our gut

To drive forward against all odds

We just have to...

There are many reasons

We don't like to be proved wrong

it's personal

It challenges our core beliefs

The same beliefs we have had all our life

It is not easy to let them go

They are part of us

Just like our arm or leg

Sometimes we have to swallow our pride

Other times we may take it on the hide

Once in a blue moon we may be right

Then we have earned bragging rights

I told you so

I knew it all along

I tried to tell you but you wouldn't listen

I am talking about artists, musicians ,poets and teachers

They do what they love

Not for money or recognition

For one reason they love what they do

These people keep trying for years to be discovered

Then if the timing is right

They will succeed

Good luck and may success guide you to do your best
