Life an entity of quality in existence
Filled in gallon of experience
And excellence
As people achieve greatness
Praise them don't but them.

One embarks on endeavour
Of permanent site
Presents his success to thee
How great is thy hand work as
The did of the almighty but lacks
The salt of its being says you.
Oh! Be it me; for my heart
Will go softened, weakened, bittered
I twinge as my heart asks me
Question; in shame I swim in the
Ocean of imperfection in thy presence
Why but me.

Thriving and striving for rest
If echoed to thy ear the word 'but'
A sign of error weakens thy spirit
Don't ' but' me!
'Not ok' buttons them up
'Not right' all the time buttons them up
'Too lazy' echoed into their ear buttons them up
Whereas keep thriving buckles them up.

But! But! But! I but you
Butters of battlers
Deterrents of successors.
Whoa! I say to the relenting divers
Who succumb to 'but 'and
Meandered to nadir
Now cries why but me!

Aye I say to the zealous relentless divers
Under this painful pleasure
Knocks the gold
Bravo! To the indefatigable determineds
Who found opportunity in difficulty
And launched in deep.

As I path through the tight
Corners of this deterrents, surely
You will hit the zenith not nadir
For you snubbsed but.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
