Way To Success God Had Shone

Way To Success God Had Shone

Instead of being bare to the bone,
And also by myself and left alone;
Bothered being;
Not worth seeing;
Wish way to success God had shone.

How young people can get ahead

School work leads to thrilling careers
Say hooray hip hip--give three cheers!
A student's new skill
Brings success just until
The bill for the loan's in arrears!

life time race

every year a new base 
every day a new race 

works often done 
life always runs 

thinking past of.....
walking fast as...

life always run 
without new base

minding up down
thinking lane down

race rather goes ,
for everyone here ,

no hurry in between
for been furious in between 

do not be fast so  means,
do not be much slow 

it can hang you up
and can shut you down

race always goes 
if you are together 

there can be a  success for you 
for those ,
who winds up the race.....

There once was a dog,

who started a blog,

he reported the news,

with barking reviews,

then toasted success with egg nog.

Final Instalment ,a hypothesis

Once there was a teacher by name Jenish Anthony "the Holy"
represented success by the simple equation  “E=C2” coolly
“E” success in any endeavor of value
“C” uncompromising pursuit of a value 
Bloody this hypothesis of Jenish"the great teacher" is no folly!

Things do happen

Funny things or crazy things of the world
Small or big, things do happen in the world
when our heart wants to go some where
but the way becomes tough to go any where
what we give nobody takes
what we ask nobody gives
colorful weather do exist
color of the wind never exist
when we are in a hurry
we often have to worry
scratching the head to think something
working hard to achieve something
All these may be our activities
We may get reward for our abilities
When utilized in a proper way
Then success will be not away
we should always keep in mind
we should never look behind
things of whatever kind
may happen one day
wait for the day

There was a student who wanted to be smart
He cherished learning and studied hard
He worked seriously on his own
And success was his only hope
He realized he couldn't without his phone be smart.

Eat no more gnirps they resolved;
Found success after eating turnips.

for gnirpsHave you figured 
out gnirps are yet?

My Three Sons

It's the luck of the draw which parent's genes prevail The traits we inherit can even predict success or failure In my case so true Mine shone through Creativeness was their niche, all three sons set sail

Childhood Memories

Childhood mem'ries, happy childhood mem'ries
When the world was beautiful and sunny
I laid down my head and prayed
For new toys and for good grades
I did not need much for joy and comfort.

Then years later life became much harder
Learning all I could with care and ardor
But my passion scorned my peers
They replied with shoves and jeers
Till my zest for life was near extinguished.

College years, I gained my independence
Shunning all my foes with my transcendence
I had strength and zeal to fight
Working hard both day and night
Hoping to create a world utopia.

When I graduated, I was certain
Comfort and success would be my guerdon
But the world turned me away
Snubbing all I had to say
All my hopes and talents were for nothing.

Now, I'm growing older and more broken
And the sleeping world is still not woken
My beard gets grayer by the years
My eyes get wrinkled by my tears
And I feel less hopeful for tomorrow.

Out Front

She’s an athlete in beautiful shape
With a figure that makes people gape
And success she’ll attain 
Her advantage is plain
When it comes to breasting the tape

Here lies Man-a species of certain wit

who with great success did the atom split

But that knowledge he misused

For he was always confused

Destroyed himself for he did never quit!

Write A Poem About

Write A Poem About

Why should you sit, stall and then pout;
Pick out subject and write poem about;
Words are flowing,
And number growing;
A success you will be without a doubt.

Sphere and Did Disappear

Sphere and Did Disappear

Of influence was not sure of which sphere,
Each had belonged to even  there or here;
When  beguiled;
A problem child,
We saw success when they did disappear.

Rainbow Really Race By and More

Rainbow Really Race By

Why would a rainbow  really race by;
When to stop hard we will always try;
Beauty observe;
Try to conserve,
And into space and past soon did die.

Need A Friend To The End

To be a friend you always need a friend;
Who will love each other until the end;
Rod casting;
Memory lasting;
Over their grave some time shall spend.

Jim Horn

God has put before us a real certain challenge
We have the challenge to accept someone who  
is a true sinner and not just a beginner who did 
end up becoming a winnerHow can we forgive 
and let live when being controlled by a sieve?
The best success America can ever have is when 
it is highly coordinated with success of President
Is Trump being a successOnly time will tell so sit 
for a spell and hear what God has to tell.

For Your Poems Seeking

Cannot find your poems that are great,
And for much longer will have to wait;
With vibrant vigor,
More poems trigger;
Hope to find success being my fate.

Need Three Things To Be a Success

Need Three Things To Be a Success

To be total success could be a centrist,
Or do look forward and become futurist;
View wide spread;
Living before dead,
Or how about a voracious ventroliquist.

McCain and His Charisma

McCain and His Charisma

McCain did enjoy  attacking an enigma,
Even if still had been attached a stigma;

And success was caused by his charisma.

Jim Horn
Retired Veteran

Enjoy writing positive poems about McCain
instead of negative ones about Trump.

Hosted A Big Party

Hosted A Big Party

Heard a big party is what they hosted,
To great success  cruised and coasted;
Great view;
Always knew,
And about both bragged and boasted.

Trump Wishes He Was Propitious

Trump Wishes He Was Propitious

Propitious is giving or indicating a good 
chance of success and being favorable.

Trump wishes that he would be propitious,
But has turned table by being tumultuous;
On us dawned,
Belief beyond,
And performance became totally fictitious.
