    A old man once told me even on the right track
    Sit still too long and you will get run over jack

    Staring up the stairs don't get you anywhere
    You have to take at least a step to get up there

    If your ship does not come sailining in here
    Then you got to swim out to go meet there

    Glazing at the dry wood doesn't start the fire
    The start of any task takes more than desire

    Is this doing nothing currently working for you
    Is so please show me where its got you to

    Aren't you sick and tired of doing absolutely nothing
    Nike said just do it, get out there and do something

    Mathematically, Nothing from Nothing leaves nothing
    Doesn't that say you gotta put in a little bit of something

    Physics, For every action their is a opposite and equal reaction
    So doesn't that mean that to get the ball rolling you need action

    Don't forget the bibical principle of you reap what you sow
    So if you're putting in nothing what do you expect to grow

    I don't know exactly what The Great one has for you
    But I'm very sure HE has something for us all to do

    SO LET"S GET BUSY

    With each couplet of lines you so creatively detail the whys...your words make us look at how just one step can lead us to a winning path. Quite an inspirational write poet.

    Hi asimplepoet
    Wow! this is great.
    I enjoy all the mortal points in your flow
    Oh Yes..I'm going to get busy to.
    Sitting around and looking into space won't get you there.
    Very cool. Bring it on.

    Peace~N~Love
