Each and Every Day Counts

Want to win the league? Look to each game
To each and every game give your name
Winning the league depends on it all
And that is how you win the league of life
Each and every day counts as much as all
All those days add up to the life in its whole
Just as all the games add up to the league title

You Give Up, You Lose It

The moment you stop striving for your goal
Is the moment all your work goes down the drain
The moment the whole machine winds down the drain
You send the tires of success screeching to a halt
When you let the firepower in your heart die
The rest of the body slumps and goes down the drain
Slackening the zeal dooms the plan down the drain
The work you spent in starting the whole plan
Is in vain spent, being lost down the drain
You stop trying and your dreams go down the drain
You give up and you lose it

The Glass is Half Full

When your attitude is positive the heart is as free
As a wild bird, not a prisoner in the cage of gloom
There is an inner light that scares away dark times
Night is rendered as bright as broad daylight
Positivity being a powerful headlight in the darkness
It shatters and disperses darkness along the road of life
Darkness is made a disarmed wasp that has lost its sting
Rendered harmless, no longer invokes dread in the heart
That is full of rays of positivity radiating from its walls
Disappointments are seen under such shining light
Such a light that exposes their hidden resourcefulness
It moves the heart to proffer hearty apologies 
For thinking them bad in a case of mistaken identity
When in fact they are means to contentment
