Poem 41 – We Adapt


We Adapt
We adapt to do whatever we need
In order to help us succeed
At work, home or where ever we may be
I think everyone adapts, not just me
We adapt to things that happen to us
It might be small like missing a bus
It might be big like breaking a rule
But it’s best to simply not loose your cool
We adapt to situations that arise
Doing what we think may be wise
There may be different options but
Usually it’s best to go with your gut
We adapt to circumstances now and then
Especially things that happen when
We least expect them to come our way
Deal with it now rather than delay
We adapt to people we meet every where
Even though about some you may not care
We generally are quite nice and polite
And try not to do things that may cause a fight
We adapt to everything all around
Like if there was snow on the ground
We’d make the necessary changes needed
In order for us to not be defeated

Poem 40 – The Church


The Church
The church is a place where people go
To say some prayers or celebrate mass
To sit quietly while they reflect
Or maybe for some time to pass
The church is used all the time
For various occasions throughout the year
Like baptisms weddings or funerals
For all the people we hold dear
The church can be a place of refuge
For people suffering terribly
They may go there to talk to God
Or maybe for a priest to see
The church is often a lovely place
For celebrating various happenings
From Christmas when our Lord is born
To beautiful romantic weddings
The church is really always there
If you simply need a place to go
To be alone or meet someone
Or pray to God, as you know

Poem 39 – It’s a Time


It’s a Time
It’s a time to start a fresh
Move on with life, forget the past
Live for the future, look ahead
Make memories that will forever last
It’s a time to do new things
Enjoy special moments everyday
Reflect on all you’ve done well
Remember good things people say
It’s a time to make a change
Perhaps to try do something new
Make or break a certain habit
Or whatever you feel you can do
It’s a time to begin again
Things that may have gone wrong
Can perhaps be left behind
Don’t dwell on things for too long
It’s a time to be yourself
Find out what suits you best
Do what you want if you can
Life will take care of the rest
