Lose Inches In Minutes


Why are we in our pit, how do we get out of
Do people really think they can
You betcha love
This isn't about losin' weight from a can

This is about changin' inches for time
It is not a catistrofiy, simple you see love
Wastin' time is a crime
No you don't, is why, can't rise above


We lose time cause, simply we doin't try
your focus is fine, to reshape your direction
is where, you need to fly
you will achieve, with a clear directive,

Lasting change is what, is but a seed
provide what people want, not what, you
think they need
Plant a seed, read read read, lose inches too

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
