Some do and some don't, many will and many won't. After all the years, I managed to finish another book. Picture is the cover designed by OnepoetGem.


Some do more than others
Some do less than brothers
Some won't even do for
fathers and mothers
Some just sit
others won't quit
Many do too much procrastinating
while others do love relating

I've done
at times none
I still have a hard time doing
while ducking and dodging
the devil persueing
Many times I get stuck
mostly I have bad luck
but I'm not all negative struck

The do tamed
I know I've been lamed
setup many times and shamed
but I never give up trying
I still try flying
At this very moment I'm grounded
tomorrow I'll probably get pounded
A man who can't handle getting beat
might as well give into defeat
