Keep-A-Goin'
Poet: Frank L. Stanton


If you strike a thorn or a rose.
Keep a-goin'!
If it hails or if it snows,
Keep a-goin'!
Taint no use to sit and "whine"
When the fish ain't on your line;
Bait your hook and keep on tryin'
Keep a-goin'!

When the weather kills your crop.
Keep a-goin'!
When you tumble from the top,
Keep a-goin'!
S'pose you are out of every dime,
Gettin' broke ain't any crime;
Tell the world you're feelin' prime —
Keep a-goin'!

When it looks like all is up,
Keep a-goin'!
Drain the sweetness from the cup.
Keep a-goin'!
See the wild birds on the wing!
Hear the bells that sweetly ring!
When you feel like sighin' — sing!
Keep a-goin"!

Look Back
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, ©2020


Look back in history and you'll see
Many people kept goin' even when they hit a tree
They never gave up. They stuck to it,
They persisted never throwing a fit.

Imagine if they just gave up
We may not have inventions, not even a cup
They persisted and preserved without any scoff
And it has resulted that we folk are now better off

So if your discouraged research and find
The people who kept going even when in a bind
The key to their success is a simple one
They kept moving forward until they were done.

The second key for their success is clear
They believed in themselves, they had no fear
Even if they failed they kept moving forward
They could see the success they were moving toward.

In reaching your goals you may find
That some things may take a bit of time
But have confidence and believe
That you have it in you to succeed!

Sailing Boat
Poet: Patience Strong


I watched a little sailing boat
With crimson wings outspread-
So small - and yet so switch and sure,
It plunged its way ahead-
Through wind and spray and driving rain
Towards the harbour light-
Unshaken by the blinding storm -
Like some great bird in flight...

And so it is in human life
With all its squalls and gales-
It's not the storm that matters,
It's the way we set our sails-
Enables us to steer our course
Through hardship and distress-
And reach the peaceful harbour
Of a well-deserved success.

Throw In The Towel
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, ©2020


You want to throw in the towel
You say with a growl
Why bother to keep tryin'
It just feels like its dyin'

But what if the next try
The results you will come by
If you throw in the towel now
You will never get a chance to bow

You have to try and learn
Your persistence will earn
A way around the troubles you face
And you will find success you'll embrace.

The Lights of Life
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, ©2020


The lights of life - green and red
Red to stop and green to go ahead
Do we pay attention to when the light is red
Or do we just stop and go to bed.

The red light of life you see
Is just a way to stop and be
It doesn't mean that you'll never go
It only means that you proceed a bit slow

The green light of life you see
Are things working out, we are so happy
But in life, the light is not always green
Things sometimes can fall in-between

So when the light moves forward to green
Keep going ever so keen
But don't give up when the light is red
Otherwise, your dreams and goals will be dead.

Find a way to turn the light to yellow
You may have to adjust and be a bit more mellow
But focusing on that light of green
You will succeed and your work will be seen.
