Poetry To Inspire
Pick Your Battles
by Julie Hebert, © 2012
When I was young I was taught many things,
But there was one I always remember.
If I can't find the words to say something nice,
Than I shouldn't speak to this member.
But there are times though my life I found this hard,
And there were times I've bit my tongue.
Some people feel they can do and say what they want,
And I felt they should have been stung.
It took me many years to discover,
That this rule could sometimes be overruled.
But only for good and never for bad,
It was time these people be schooled!
To this day there are still days,
I have to sit back and let it be.
Some battles aren't worth the fight that would come,
And some people aren't either I see.

What is it that successful people do and have? Do they have one thing in common? A book that will give you answers.
Why is that some people are more successful than others. Catherine Pulsifer's book will teach you the three key qualities that these people have mastered.
As Robert Penn Warren said, "The poem is a little myth of man's capacity of making life meaningful. And in the end, the poem is not a thing we see-it is, rather, a light by which we may see-and what we see is life." You don't need to read a lengthy book, you can find inspiration in these brief but concise words. We hope you find this in these verses, messages, and thoughts. Quick and fast to read and we hope you find words to share with others that need encouragement or inspiration.
