Success

Start living your life, how you want it to be

Start living your life, how you want it to be.
Understand, all you must accomplish to get you there.
Choose wisely, before making decisions that will affect your life.
Challenge yourself, to reach these goals that you wish to obtain.
Expect, there will be downfalls that are a part of life, but…
Stay focused on your dreams, and soon…
Success, will be in your reach.

*poem written by Melody Cole, 2001

don’t you weep

when times are bad, and you feel down…

when times are bad, and you feel down…

don’t you weep!

when you feel alone, and there’s no one around…

don’t you weep!

when the love of your life, has moved on…

don’t you weep!

when someone dear, passes on…

don’t you weep!

when strangers criticize, the way you look…

don’t you weep!

when your family gives, less than they took…

don’t you weep!

when you want to do right, but you do everything wrong…

don’t you weep!

when god fills your mind, heart, body and soul…

weep child weep!

poem written 2001 & art by melody cole

silently i sit

silently i sit

eyes damp

lips weak

trying to capture inspiration before time has run out

amazingly thirty years have not rung the chime of fulfillment

each thought momentarily elapses into a distant memory

every muscle in my body tends to be useless

silently i sit

eyes damp

lips weak
