Get Off The Couch Get Out - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Stable those thoughts that shake you,
More to live on doubts.
Listen less to judgements passed,
You can do without.

So many today wont leave,
Their lives to live depending...
On opinions others have.
As time slips away from them,
Quicker than sand through an hour glass.

Get off the couch get out.
To do something different not done before.
Get off the couch get out.
Take a walk.
Or a bus ride.
Decide not to stay inside.
Get off the couch get out.
Get off the couch get out.

Stable those thoughts that shake you,
More to live on doubts.
Listen less to judgements passed,
You can do without.

Get off the couch get out.
Explore.
To do it more.
Get off the couch get out.
Ignore.
Living to be bored.
Get off the couch get out.
Get off the couch get out.

Take a walk or a bus ride.
Exercise.
Decide...
To live your life to like.
And find you can,
An appetite to invite...
Not leftover to repeat,
From pased days or those nights.

Get off the couch get out.
Get off the couch get out.
