Fight The Good Fight


When the days grow shorter and the length of night draw longer
It feels like your lost in time,
And when you cant tell right from wrong they say, you beg for another day
But you got to read between the lines
The dark is enveloping, but don’t be discouraged and don’t be afraid
When you park your soul in the light you keep up your spirit
But don’t loose you faith

Every night every morning fight the fight you need to survive
It’s the only way, if all falls
Then darling don’t refrain, beg and plead for another day
You’re the master of your own destiny take all you get and make your history
Yesterday was then today is now, correct the wrongs and forge a way ahead
For this is a story which isn’t easy in a life where nothing is free
Take a look in your heart and you’ll find the answers that you seek
Fight the fight you need to fight to survive
Then the pleaded day will arrive where forever you can reside alive

    Time is to some the forth dimension
    Where all else is in suspension,
    Where then and now and the future
    Are only an illusion of nature.

    Much like the automatic backup on the computer
    It captured the past and stored it forever (?)
    And the present is a fleeting moment that will
    Soon follow the computer's saving drill.

    But the future can only be in your dreams
    For nothing is really what it seems
    And a seeming meaningless event
    May change the Future, heaven sent.

    So is best not to dwell on the past
    And try hard to make the present last
    For worrying about what is to come
    Will only make the present worrisome.

    Life is to live, Enjoy!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
