We are the sum total of our Education, Training, and Experience, but - we are also Creatures of Habit - and most of our habits are BAD!

A conscious effort to improve requires WORK! And sometimes, we are our own Worst Enemies! Success in anything needs a goodly supply of Persistence, Determination, and Desire.

I hope the following gives you some measure of ideas to work on Improvement.

Tomorrow a New Day will Dawn - will you be Grateful for another Chance?



APOLOGY

© - Tom Hyland - 9-19-08


Where do I Begin?
Let me count the Ways -
Mea Culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima Culpa!
Through my most grievous Fault - in recent Days!


Along with many Others,
I allowed myself to Dwell -
On Negative Things,
Neither Happy - nor Swell!


War, Politics, Economy,
Prices of Food, Gas, and Oil -
All make your blood Boil,
Anger takes over other Vices.


To refresh my memory last Night,
Popped in my DVD -
Re-watched “The SECRET”
Need to Return to Happy and Free!


Thoughts become Energy,
To Visualize is to See!
Like Energy Attracts Like Energy,
I Need to Feel Positive, for both you and Me!


To this End,
I shall henceforth Try to Be -
More Positive, Happy, and Grateful
For all that I Hear, Smell, Taste, or See!


An Attitude of Gratitude -
Yes, That is for Me!
Ask - Believe - Receive -
Everything in the Universe is - Energy!


I am Happy and Grateful Now That:
I’m Granted Yet Another Day -
To Enjoy Nature and All my Blessings -
And the Forthcoming Bounties that May.


Perchance to Dream -
To Reach Untold Goals -
To Grasp upon a Great Wave,
And Surf Above Life’s Shoals!


As the Lyrics of the Song Goes -
‘You don’t always get what you Want”
But - you do get what you Think!
Eliminate the Negative - CAN’T!


Positive Begets Positive -
That’s the Ticket!
Avoid the Pitfall of Negativity -
Escape from the Dark Thicket!


Want to Soar with the Eagles?
High Up in the Sky?
Then - Don’t be a Night-Owl -
I’ll tell you Why!


To be Bright-Eyed and Bushy-Tailed,
Requires a Good Night’s Sleep -
And Hanging out ‘til Dawn Breaks,
Keeps you Down with the Sheep!


Be a Shepherd -
Be a Leader -
Guide All to Safety,
Go the Extra Meter!


Smile - Hug - Live - Laugh - Love -
Always Give Thanks -
To your Higher Power Above -
Accrue Assets in All your Banks!


Assets Minus Liabilities Equals Net Worth -
Debt is Bad - Really a Curse!
Acquire Wisdom - Take a Chance -
Pay The Piper - then, you may Dance!


Eat, Drink, and Be Merry -
There’s Good Reason Why -
Do Not Tarry - For Tomorrow
May be your Great Goodbye!


Carpe Diem - Seize the Day!
Be All you Can Be -
“The Secret”
Tells you the Way!


Think BIG!
Feel Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise -
Avoid all the Negatives -
Most of them are Lies!

Interesting message and form. -- Jeff

This is a sweet poem, well written. It probably represents the general attitude the world has been operating under mostly since the end of WWII.
Best regards,
Leland

"Apology" is truly a powerful poem, containing metaphysical secrets -- as well as practical "how to" advice. It deserves several reads. Very well done, Tom -- Stay on your path!

I can thoroughly identify with the above. Like Mr. Ed (below), I can't feel very positive these days. However, you have provided some fine advice as well, Tom. Thank you. Love and peace,

So glad you go the positive outlook now. I try to be positive, but sad sometimes. I really liked the words to this write. It tells me lots of things I should be doing and am not. Thanks for posting this for us.

I Need to Feel Positive, for both you and Me!

Good, because I sure can't find very many things to be positive about right now. Keep Up The Good Vibes, and the Good Work!
