Hang In There


until you can
Hang in there
Till we ran
Hang in there
Still there is time
Hang in there
Until we rhyme,
Uh huh-
We been tappin
That rhyme
Until it shines,
From the grime to wine
We whine;
How obscene, is life
beneath all the critics inside,
we ride;
That pride, sitting on our brains so high,
riding through every mess we hide,
We coincide,
At every step we made,
at every promise we break,
at every breathe, we take.
wait.
now we are down to earth
And barely breathing,
But hang in there,
Until we are dreaming.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
