Life Lessons ~ Poetry to Inspire

John is a Christian but feels that all religions have both positives and negatives. He prefers to live by his own code of ethics.

Payback Down the Track

Why does life seem so unfair

For people who are good,

While evildoers get away

With much more than they should.

Well, karma usually catches up

With those who bring its wrath,

In ways that most of us don't see...

Bad relationships, ill health.

So, don't be sad and say, "Why me?'

What goes around comes back.

Those who cheat, and lie, and sin

Get payback down the track.


Don't Stash Your Goals Away

Live each day like it's your last,

Don't waste the time you have.

Be with those you care about,

Visit places that you crave.

We don't know our allotted time,

So, don't sit around and dream.

Get up and make your actions count,

Be part of the world scheme.

It's easy to say, "Not today,

Another chance will come."

This very rarely is the case,

To say that is quite dumb.

So make the most of every hour,

Say, "I love you!" every day,

Do the things you most enjoy,

Don't stash your goals away.
