Tag Archives: shine



I planted my first acorn when I was only three

One of the first lessons my father taught me

He was an expert in how seeds germinate and grow

He thought this was something everyone should know

I waited patiently for the first leaves to appear

Then he showed me how to tend it with such loving care

I watched that sapling grow into a mighty tree

When I see it now it brings him into my memory

It reminds me of the love that he showed to me

Similar to the care I showed to that saplng tree

By reason of that love the tree reached maturity

And it’s survival to this day reminds me of his memory

It’s many years now since he passed away

But he still enters my mind nearly everyday

His passing was something that made me sad

But he was the one I was proud to call my dad

Sieze the moment,it’s your time to shine – Promote Yourself


Time may seem long but it will come to end,
so show what you’ve got while there’s time to spend;
Don’t just think, don’t just dream, don’t just say-
Turn them into reality and find a way.
lt is not too early, it is not too late;
Make a way as long as there’s to create;
You’ll never know unless you try,
seize the moment and don’t be shy.
It might be hard to climb the top,
but keep on moving and never stop;
there could be things that you might drop,
but don’t lose hope and don’t look down.
With great determination, you’ll shine like a star;
When we see a constellation, you’ll be the one too far;
In the sky of success, you’ll never fall;
As long as you’re with Him, you’ll have it all.
