Treasure Island

Fit As A Fiddle


Mentally fit as a fiddle,
With minds like solid rock.
Fit as a fiddle,
And determind not to stop.
Mentally fit as a fiddle,
And removing that which blocks...
Experience gained and abilities known.
Earned with a doing from bottom to top.

People disciplined have no intentions to end,
What they've started just to drop.
While mopping up their sobbing tears.
And wept from expressing their created fears.
Mentally fit as a fiddle,
People like this are rarely heard to quibble...
Over facing obstacles to bicker,
In tit for tats to argue back.

Fit as a fiddle,
With minds like solid rock.
Mentally fit as a fiddle,
And determind not to stop.
Fit as a fiddle,
And removing that which blocks...
Experience and abilities gained,
Earned with a doing from bottom to top.
To prove with a doing what they are.
Regardless who believes what they are not!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
