Wanting and Learning


Encouragement Poems

The Key To Wants
. (c) 2011


If you've ever been told in your life,
That there is something you can't do.
I hope you didn't quit, but instead showed wit,
And proved its not up to them, but to you.

You'll come across many people in life,
That believe they know it all.
It can be hard to construed, if whats been said was true,
But overall, it's up to you to stand tall.

Anything you want to do, you can do,
If you only believe in you.
Don't let others change you, or try to bend you,
You're the only person who can change your point of view.

So if this is really what you want to do,
Get out there and take action.
Be all you can be, turn that key,
And don't allow for any distraction!


Lesson's Learned
Catherine Pulsifer (c) 2011


A lesson is learned every day,
The one I learned was just today.
I learned that others canít be pressed,
To do or act as I feel best.

I've learned that people are their own,
And only I can change the known.
If I don't like how something is,
Changing me is all there is.

So next time you come across this issue,
Don't get mad and grab a tissue.
Change the way that you react,
And maybe that will help impact.

A lesson is learned every day,
What lesson did you learn today?
Whatever it is, I'm sure its great,
Take what you've learned, donít let it wait.
