Who Dares Will Win

Who Dares Will Win

The world holds its breath, as the winds of change blow,
Do we dig in our heels, or go with the flow.
Life as we know it, has reached a fork in the road,
Which way would be best? To lighten our load.

Do you want a future? Yes, of course you do,
Your children to thrive, and remember you.
To remember your courage, as you faced up to change,
To remember your willingness, to re-arrange.

So put a smile on your face, put a smile in your heart,
The coming year, will give all a new start.
Rain will still rain, and snow will still fall,
The sun will still shine, and birds will still call.

The new year is coming, as it’s done in the past,
And hopes and dreams will come true at last.
Be brave, be strong, and push aside fear,
All will be fine, in the coming new year.

So have courage and strength, don’t let fear win the day,
Doing things right, keeps the enemy at bay.
So stick out your chin, refuse to give in,
And remember the motto..who dares..will win.

Not a lot to tell...just an ordinary man...always loved writing but never had the time until now...hope I've got a few years left to write about the million things I would like to get down on paper be it in poetry form or just plain old story telling. Just in case anyone would like me to come along to their group and read a few of my poems live..I would be happy to do so within the confines of Kent or Sussex...I would just need to cover my time and petrol costs...plus a cup of tea and a biscuit. Just email [email protected] To answer some of your questions= ex-army..ex -jackeroo...ex-builder..ex-quite a few other things..still rocking...married...2 + 3 children...7 grandchildren...retired...love custard creams. I have now published my first collection of poems which are now available on Amazon under the title of..LAST APPLE ON THE TREE. The book consists of twenty seven poems covering a wide range of topics and emotions. My second book has just been published and is called A BREEZE IN THE WILLOWS, also available on Amazon. I hope that everyone will get as much enjoyment reading them, as I did writing them.
