Grow 430



As the twig is bent
So shall the
Tree grow

Our parents teach us how to be
But we learn much more from what we see
If they yell and argue get depressed
No matter what they say we get distressed
The lucky ones get loving models
Others watch them empty bottles
These first impressions are hard to change
That's why some people are really strange
But change we can there are models at hand
We can study, practice and take command

As the twig is bent
So shall the
Tree grow

Possibilities. 429



Meaningless 
Mind storms
Surrounded by
Great possibilities

The traffic is bad the radio doesn't work
After all these years I still act like a jerk
Why does this happen I have so much to do
But then I remembered it's all part of the view
Family, friends and three great pets
Shower, toilet and not too many debts
Silly daydreams and meaningless chatter
Not much I'll do will ever really matter
But who knows what's on the road ahead
Maybe a big contribution before I get dead

Meaningless 
Mind storms
Surrounded by
Great possibilities

Today 428



If it's today
Die with class
There are no do overs

Back when I was going to live forever
I thought making money was the measure
As the decades pass me by
I came to realize we all die
Making money can be really cool
As long as you follow the golden rule
But the real treasures in life
Are family, friends and my wife
So grateful I'll stay
Until my last day

If it's today
Die with class
There are no do overs

Motion 427



Get in motion
The wrong direction
Is a lot better then
No direction

Just because your plan didn't work
Doesn't mean your a helpless jerk
Lessons gained are worth more than wealth
Exercise,eat right and maintain good health
So what's of value that will actually last
A quest for wisdom cannot be surpassed
And what is wisdom and how is it made 
It's comes with time when the price is paid
The price is simple just stay alive
Study, think and it will arrive 

Get in motion
The wrong direction
Is a lot better then
No direction

Sharp 426




Stay sharp
Act fearlessly
Move gracefully
Die with a good haircut

There's so much to learn and understand
The little I know can always expand
Of all the skills that I'm trying to learn
Is how to respond with skill and discern
It's not what happens that creates our state
We can choose what kind of state to create
Step into fear and learn even faster
It hardly ever becomes a disaster
Stand straight, breath and move like a dancer
And gleefully except that there's really no answer

Stay sharp
Act fearlessly
Move gracefully
Die with a good haircut

Wisdom 425




Learning is
Common 
Wisdom
Is rare

It started out when we were young
A well-meaning teacher waging her tongue
We learn useless stuff to pass a test
And leave our interests unaddressed
Look around how it came out
Over half of us are big and stout
Philosophy, art and what to eat
If taught at all are incomplete
All facts are in hand and completely free
The curious ones will learn with glee

Learning is
Common 
Wisdom
Is rare

Vortex 424



Mindless
Time sucking
Vortex
(Internet)

Take a walk and pick wildflowers
Exercise to develop your powers
Get some paint and make a mess
Something great may coalesce
Play loud music and dance around
Study the Stoics and get profound
Sky dive, bike or ski downhill
Catch the next flight for Brazil
Save your money be real frugal
If you're bored consult with Google

Mindless
Time sucking
Vortex
