Super Hero Comes To Your Rescue

A "HOPELESS" POEM OF HOPE AND COURAGE
You don’t believe in banks.
You don’t believe in Paulson.
That’s OK not to believe in many things,
As long as you believe in yourself.
You think the world’s gone mad.
You are exactly right.
Time to step back, breathe slow and deep,
And cleanse your lenses for a better sight.
Most people call it a recession.
Others warn of a great depression.
It is but a wake-up call
For those with a wider vision.
For those born into poverty,
Unemployment and Homelessness have always been real, and not a probability.
They are not afraid of changes and gloom.
They strive to derail this train called “Destiny”.
Are you waiting for help in a new President, a new Treasurer or a new Fed Reserve Chair?
If these aren’t helping, maybe a tax cut is the best idea.
Without the core rescue plan, nothing else will do.
That core plan, my friend, is You.
You will roll up your sleeves and bite your bullets.
You will keep your cool.
You will make it happen,
For yourself and those counting on you.
You will do what it takes.
You will build opportunities on Zero.
Edison, Carl Lewis and Michael Phelps all did it.
You’ll also make it possible.
Adversity brings Challenge.
And Challenge jump-starts this dynamo nick-named “Courage”.
Five years down the line, you’ll look back and be grateful,
That this mess, or recession, or whatever you call it, actually achieved something –
Turning you into someone bigger than life itself, your own Super Hero.
