Lyn Paul

(17.03.1965 / Certainly Not Memory Lane)


Read my words, hear my voice,
Understand in life... There is a choice.
A choice to grow in life to succeed.
Or a choice to burn, just swallow and bleed.
The power is yours. It's about never giving in.
Fighting for life. You need to win.
Winning is not the be all. Yet it is if you need to survive.
And it is if you are feeling... you are no longer alive.
What is it that makes us strong. Then stronger each day?
It is the beauty of life no matter how grey along the way.
Open up and share, Let everyone in,
This is the way, ...the way for us all to win.
Win the Battle of the change of living as the world each day is to grow,
The pure amazement of now..... Now and tomorrow.
So grow and listen to eachothers voices.
Understand the need to accept eachothers choices.

    Communication is key, because if you don't understand how can you ever begin to try to accept somebody else's choice. (Report) Reply

    This message has great relevance at a time when people withdraw to their own narrow shells. Opening up and showing the willingness to listen to and care for others makes life meaningful, no matter we win or lose the battle! Let this message ring from all corners! ! (Report) Reply

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
