THE GEM 24 SEP 2015 :“IF YOU CAN NOT ARRIVE IN DAYLIGHT, THEN STAND OFF WELL CLEAR, AND WAIT UNTIL DAWN. AFTER ALL, THAT’S ONE OF THE THINGS GOD MADE BOATS FOR- TO WAIT IN.” -TRISTAN JONES

Rowboat.

In this life, I’ve made note,
Of four types in life’s rowboat,
Those who do,
And those who don’t,
Those who can’t,
And those who won’t.Those who do,
Tend to see things through,
From start until fruition,
They row and row and row the boat,
They toil through all condition.

Those who don’t,
Act like they will, but won’t,
And blame others for their lot,
Seeming experts at the rowing,
But lift oar, they will not.

Those who can’t,
Struggle and try,
They fight with limitations,
Even though they can’t row,
They help with navigations.

Those who won’t,
Oft’ procrastinate, or wait too late,
Choosing simply not to row,
Sitting like helpless victims,
As boat’s tossed to and fro.

So do your part,
Navigate, steer, or row,
It takes all to remain afloat,
So drop the sinking attitudes,
And help us row our boat.
