STAMINA

           STAMINA

No where near a force of nature.
Challenging the things that are not for sure.

Building what we can  survive.
A small measurement when we strive.

Lessons when it comes to strength.
Multiplying the time found in length.

Stop and learn the sound of weakness.
Hard to find when one is restless.

Improving in a mental task.
The answers are found when we ask.

Stamina is needed between me and you.
To perform bravely in all we do.

Losing the ability to rump for long.
You're out of shape comes in way too wrong.

The idea is to learn when ideas seem to fail.
The wrong action is to bail.

Thinking, thinking what could it be.
Will not solve the problem between you and me.

Practice is  the best energy.
Memorize it and stamina will come naturally.

    Gritty and randy. I like this as it tends towards the Chicago blues school of lyrics. Yet it is not raunchy. Okay! REgards, Gerard

    Hey a few beers will slow that engine down, or anti depressants work wonders delaying 'old faithful, or a couple of hydrcodone is best if you have a prescription laying around! Usually works for me:) Any man that wouldn't appreciate this poem from his mate is probably dead anyway or in need of a doctor!
