Testing and Protesting – A Few Lines Addressed to Aim for the Best


(Upon request for Sunday Scribblings.)


Testing and Protesting –
A Few Lines Addressed to Aim for the Best

Most people are most fearsome of failing,
Afraid of their weakness unveiling,
But a triumph is best
When it comes from a test,
And the struggler winds up prevailing.

For what treasure comes from a whim,
That gives up when prospects look dim?
Hang onto your hope
To walk the tightrope,
And crawl right out there on that limb.

Don’t worry when folks are judgmental,
Or even if they’re temperamental.
You follow the dance,
Leave nothing to chance;
Remember life’s experimental.

So don’t be alarmed by a trial,
Or live out your days in denial.
Just jump in the game
For your highest aim,
And hold out for something worthwhile.

  1. This is so cool; humorous and not baudy like the usual limerick.
    Nicely done.

  4. Sweetie,

    I read your Time Machine article. Very girly.

    I would like to tell you a story concerning time. I always remember it, especially when I think I have run out of love in my heart.
    May I tell it to you?
