Make It Work

If the doing is worthy of saving.
Make it work!
Swift to be done quickly,
With a benefit of it healed and fixed.
Make it work!

Be hopeful and encouraged,
To make it work.
If the doing is deserved,
It can be worked.
Of course there will be nervousness,
In it first...
It can be worked.

If the doing is worthy of saving,
It can be worked.
And if the doing has a purpose that's served,
It can be worked!

Nothing comes to stay preserved or to remain perfect.
Nothing that is worth it stays the same unchanged.
And if it should be claimed to be that which one wishes...
There has to be some sacrifice,
Done to realize both day and night to make it right...
It's going to take some effort,
To make it work!

If the doing is worthy...
Make it work!
At first there'll be some nevousness,
But it can be worked.
And if the doing has a purpose that is served...
Make it work!

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
