The Abc's Of Life

Poem By Tom Maxwell

Always be confident, with everything you do

Be honest with your thoughts, or you just fool you

Changes can be made at anytime

Don't always follow others, use your own mind

Evaluate the outcome, of your decisions of today

Forget your angers, they will hold you down, in many ways

Go work towards your dreams, or they won't come to you

Hold on to true friends, they are so few

Innocent, none of us are all of the time

Join people who have positive visions, in their mind

Keep negative people out of your way

Listen and think, you will learn everyday

Make others feel special, who have helped you along your way

Never deceive anyone, in your days

Open your heart, to those who do to you

Patience with everyone, and everything you do

Quit cutting down others, it doesn't make you strong

Review your actions,Admit when you are wrong

Stop hurting others, what does it prove or do

Treat others the way you want them totreat you you

Understand be honest and friendships, will last

Visit apologize, to those you have hurt in the past

Work towards dreams, find your purpose, and role

Xenobiotics at a high rate, can end your dreams and goals

Years in life are short, don't play others, with your mind

Zero in on the truth with yourself, while you have time

Everything Works Together

Think about those worms, that wiggle through the land,
they loosen up the soil, so the roots of plants, can expand,

Those plants give off oxygen, to support life on this earth each day,

Dreams & Plans

When you want, something new in your life,
You must be open, to change,
You can't' just rely on others,
To follow, and rearrange.

Look Past The Stars

Many times, when we are lost,
We look up, to stare at the sky,
All we can see, are the clouds, passing by,
Never giving a thought of, other planets, up so high.

Friends That Touch Our Heart

We use to be close, always together,
Shared good times, and helped each other, through bad weather.
There were few days, you would see us apart,
We had a friendship that connected, right from the start.

Always Listen

Always Listen

We create our own ambitions,
Convincing ourselves, what we would like to achieve,


I made it to my 60's still doing ok,
Changing identity, another time, along the way.
Who you are, is what you actually do every day,
The natural habits, you automatically sway to,
