Stepping Stones


Stepping Stones.
When people call you names.
They can proof positive,
Only express their vocabulary.
Can you think about it?
Step!

Stepping Stones.
When people lie on you
They so obviously
Can only reveal themselves.
Can You Think about It?
Step!

Stepping Stones.
When people attack your character
They can only see
From within their dormant imagination.
Can you think about it?
Step!

Stepping Stones.
When personal people
Physically abuse you.
It only unveiles their amuck distinction.
Can you think about it?
Step!

Stepping Stones.
When people are mature enough
To apologize and mean it.
Both can excel these infirmities.
Can you think about it?
Step!

Stepping Stones.
Expel these arbitrary fines
Excel your thoughts and deeds
Put your life into over drive.
Can you think about it?
Step!

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
