Never Give Up - Poem by Kim Barney

When life knocks you down
On your way to town
Just get back up and
Keep on walking.

It happens to us all
So every time you fall
Just get back up and
Keep on walking.

On every single trip
Odds are that you'll slip
So get back up and
Keep on walking.

Through each and every mile
You must retain your smile
So get back up and
Keep on walking.

Topic(s) of this poem: life, smile, walking

    I have done a lot of walking all my life which is why am 152 still walking and approaching 90 (Report)Reply

    Wow, Wes, congratulations! Walking has really helped you. At 152 years old, and approaching 90 pounds. I think it would be all right if you gained a little bit more weight,
