You Can Beat It


You can beat it.
The moment you know it's not needed.
You can beat it.
To kick it to the curb and leave.
You can beat it.
You don't have to take what is,
What you think is negative.
You can beat it.
To do it with an end to stop.
You can beat it.
To not permit another visit,
If it's what you wish to rid...
With a being positive.

You can beat it.
The moment you know it's not needed.
You can beat it.
To kick it to the curb and leave.
You can beat it.
You don't have to take what is,
What you think is negative.
If it's what you wish to rid...
With a being positive.
You can beat it.
With it known you don't condone it.
And to show this going on.
You can beat it.

You can beat it.
With it known you don't condone it.
And to show this going on.
You can beat it.

Turn up those lips from a frown that exists,
To know...
You can beat it.
Don't be defeated.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
