Where do I go next?

IF

I donít think itís absurd If I could be like a bird,

And fly whenever I wanted to.

If I had at least one wish, Some people would be a fish

And grow old in a big pond.

If I was scared with fear, I turn and run like a deer

And then be safe again.

If I liked to feel the sunshine, Iíd be a flower at the time.

People would be happy to see me.

No Bananas today

There are no bananas to

Go with my breakfast today.

I finished the last one, and

there isnít much more I can say,

except I should have got

more of the fruit yesterday.

I guess I was just busy, and

Really I had no money to pay

For any bananas or milk

To eat with my cereal anyway.

Maybe I can have them with

Breakfast when I get paid Friday.

Buckets

Push yourself to do a little more.

Itís not enough to just put out

Buckets on the floor when you have

Holes in the roof, someone said.

After running a few laps, and thereís

Just one more left to go, you find a

second wind and sprint to the finish.

Then you add to the too score for

The team at the end of the day.

Push yourself to do a little more.

Itís not enough to just put out

Buckets on the floor when you have

Holes in the roof, someone said.

There comes a time when all things

Come to an end, and the sun sets in

The sky, but life goes on after dark.

Noahís family kept on building his arc.

He pushed himself to do a little more.

Itís not enough to just put out

Buckets on the floor when you have

Holes in the roof, someone said.
