Don’t Wait by Blair Gaulton

Don’t Wait
Don’t wait;
otherwise we contemplate;
much too much.
The opportunity is lost;
the cost;
you kick and criticize yourself;
possibly for years.
Spare yourself this pain.
Don’t wait, do it now!

Keep On Goin’ Rap by Blair Gaulton

Keep On Goin’ Rap
Words spilling out of me;
as if I have no tomorrow;
no joy or sorrow.
Keep on goin’.
Live each day;
accept whatever comes your way.
Keep on goin’;
don’t give up;
especially when things are rough.

Pull yourself together;
the bad times will not last forever.
Work hard and never quit;
stay focused;
calm and cool no matter what the commotion.
Keep on goin’!

Ups and downs are part of life;
as are disagreements and strife;
Don’t let ’em get you down
Keep on goin’

The Naysayers are always there;
they want to dishearten you;
to rob your good cheer.
They are there to test your resolve
Keep on goin’

Be creative, and see all the challenges you’ll solve
show ’em they’re wrong!
Let ’em squawk;
as you walk let ’em scoff.
‘Cause they don’t have a clue
about you and your dreams
You’re gonna make ’em come true!
Keep on goin’

With time;
doin’ what you gotta do;
that frown will turn into a smile.
’cause you’ve reached the time
where you’ll shine.
Keep on goin’
cross the finish line.
You’ve made your dreams come true;
’cause you kept on goin’,
and did not stop;
that’s what it takes to make it to the top!

A Thought on a Hot Afternoon by Blair Gaulton

A Thought on a Hot Afternoon
Broken does not mean beaten.
Whatever pieces you have;
pick them up and make yourself anew.
Stand tall!
Dare to be; who you want to be;
only you can make it happen.
Don’t worry about what others think.
They are scared of you changing;
all they want is you to stay the same.
Be fierce; embrace your change.
Come out of the cocoon butterly;
and fly!
You are not alone!

Grandfather’s Advice by Blair Gaulton

Grandfather’s Advice
Don’t let others tell you;
what you can or cannot do.
The only one who can decide that; is you.
Do what you got to do.
Give it your all;
work hard; don’t give up.
Believe in yourself;
It will come true.
It did for me.
It will for you too!

Let Not by Blair Gaulton

Let Not
Let not rain;
stop your smile.
Let not wind;
stop your laughter.
Let not snow;
stop your warmth.
Let not disaster;
vanquish your spirit.
Let not naysayers;
make you feel small.
Let not doubt;
tear you apart.
Let not fear;
cripple your resolve.
Let not challenges;
hinder your creativity to solve them.
Do not stop!
You will make it!

Now is the Time by Blair Gaulton

Now is the Time
I know I am lacking things;
am an imperfect guy.
it makes feel sad inside;
to realize;
my best is not good enough.
It hurts a lot;
tearing me up.
Throw in being sick too
Don’t really know
what to do anymore.  
Now is the time.
I can’t give up.
I’ve got to reach the other shore.
Throw my inner negativity;
out the door.
Fight to be me.
Face down my fears.
Find a way to get through it all,
and be happy.

Wake Up by Blair Gaulton

Wake Up
Must face every new day;
in spite of the pain,
and say;
I will find a way;
to be better than yesterday.
Yes, I am flawed, and lack
qualities, and things.
I will not be slack;
get rid of my own inner torture rack.
Which is holding me back;
accept my mistakes.
Forgive everyone, and myself;
let go.
Work from love.
Face down fear.
Start building a better future.
Never quit!

Wake Up 3 by Blair Gaulton

Wake Up 3
Tear down
the barricades inside yourself;
they stop you
and nobody else.
You cannot go anywhere;
if you don’t let go.
A world is out there
to be discovered.
Get out of your cocoon;
move it brother!
Putting it off, won’t help you;
you’ll end up paying the cost.
Put your doubts aside
wake up, live; be alive!
