Born To Win


Some people are born with spunk
And some with just lazy genes
Some people are blessed with grit
They understand what Work means.

But some people are born to complain
To blame everyone and everything.
To listen to them, what a pain!
They never get to the point of Trying.

If other people can achieve
A better life for themselves by trying
I wonder why some people believe
They were born to lose, yet go on living?

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
