Easy is as easy does,
Who hasn't heard that phrase?
But what really does that mean,
If you don't do, easy never finds the way?
There are so many different ways,
That messages are tangled in.
Find a quote or poem you like,
Then make sense of what is says.
Sometimes you may not understand,
But then there will be times you do.
And those times are when we truly benefit,
And bring the message into view.
Wisdom finds us in many ways,
It's up to us to allow it to help.
Many people benefit from these thoughts,
And it's a way to allow yourself to self-help.
Be You No Matter Who
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2013
There are people out there,
Who believe it's their right.
To tear others down,
And take away their light.
These people are mean,
And troubled all their own.
But they do not have the right,
To take away your thrown.
So stand up tall,
And flutter those wings.
Never allow others to,
Take away your springs.
Be cheerful and happy,
Be lovely and chatty.
As no one can change you,
Unless you allow it.
Assist From Fate
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2014
Sometimes things don't go our way,
And there is nothing we can do.
We wish and plead to those above,
And often feel quite blue.
We wonder if things could have changed,
If there was something we had done.
Knowing deep down in our hearts,
That there was simply none.
Time will pass and feelings will fade,
We will soon be at our best.
Our faith was tried and limits pushed,
It was one big faithful test.
Now that we've had a chance to think,
And find what good was missed.
We realize fate was on our side,
And lucky to have that assist.
The Wage Of Life
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2012
In life we must earn a wage,
To get us through some trials.
As to live a certain life,
Money is needed in piles.
We have to pay our bills,
And have a place to live.
So we find a simple job,
And money it will give.
But simple jobs are that,
A means to an end.
It is just a job,
It does not feel like a best friend.
So we work our simple jobs,
And pay what we can.
Our lives roll on by,
Without even a begin.
There will come a time,
When we’ll want more than this life.
And we’ll have to do what we can,
To get out of all of this strife.
A wage is nothing at all,
If a smile it can not make.
So its time to make a big change,
And take this life and give it a shake.
Figure out what will make you smile,
And make that feeling true.
Life will take you everywhere,
If you only allow yourself too.
Be who you want to be,
And don’t stop for anyone.
You can be anything you want,
And your wage can be your sun.
