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!

Don’t Give Up on You by Blair Gaulton

Don’t Give Up on You
Let not the ravages of time,
and all that has gone wrong;
rob you of your laughter and smiles.
It may take time to work out, and get through.
Remember you are not alone;
there are people out there;
who love you and who also have been through it too.
Talk away your sadness, anger and pain;
so you can build yourself up again.
Emerge renewed.
No matter what you do;
you are loved for being you:
by many more people than you realize too. (C)BJG(Blair Gaulton)July 2015

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!
