Best Foot Forward

BEST FOOT FORWARD

 

If your get up and go has got up and gone

Don’t dwell forever on whatever went on

Live for the moment, spend every minute

Enjoying your life and everything in it

Count every blessing for time will not wait

Until you’re feeling better – it might be too late

Get help if you need it, acknowledge your pain

It’s time to get back on your feet once again

Let your light shine, show your face to the world

You have every reason to smile and be proud

Dust yourself down, blow the cobwebs away

Put your best foot forward and embrace this new day.

Poems by Marcia – A Gentle Shake

A GENTLE SHAKE

I’m here to give you a gentle shake

To wake you up inside

Light the fires of all your dreams

Renew your lust for life

Like a howling wind or a bird that sings

I’ll reach right through to your core

Be in your head as you lie in bed

Motivate you once more

Get you back upon your horse again

To hold the reins of life

Steer, control, uplift your soul

I’ll be right by your side

Journey on, life is fun

It starts with just one step

Follow your nose, go with the flow

Have no time for regrets

Listen within, let your instinct direct

For it knows you more than yourself

Trust how you feel to know what is real

Your inner voice happy to help

Each day is a chance to start a new life

Decide what you want – make it happen!

Your dreams are only a thought away

So turn your thoughts to action.
