Daily disappointments beat
Each one of us on down
Aspiring none the less we
Leap onto higher ground

Into this world we stumble
Naively in everyway
Good deeds of those who're humble
Will rarely carry sway

Instead what more oft' happens
The "poser" gets the prize
Having more integrity
Instilled makes us more wise

Thus we battle silently
Bearing a knowing smile
Each time becoming stronger
Cares cast off every mile

And our humor is our shield
Unfailing 'till the last
Second place may be our lot
Each time the die is cast

Lowered sights for us are not
Inspired by our losses
Fervently we stay the course
Empowered by our crosses

'Such is how the game is won
Not all depends on chance
Others may have jumped the gun
They trade them-selves to dance

For what may come too easy
As often is to go
Instead what we have worked for
Rewards are what we know

Sometimes nonsense isn't .

Yo Dr. Moose: You carve a fine line... excellent grain and a smooth finish. Like the head piece too.

PS Working on something that should tell the tale about my disappearance from the 'Stute. Keep an eye out.. and don't trust Norman R. It was all his doing.

I like your thoughts here Dr Moose, some great lines, "humor is our shield" is one.

Nope, life is anything but fair! A lesson hard learned! But we are still winners when we accept it all(the ups and the downs) with grace! Wonderful poem! And a wonderful acrostic!

d.
Seen it happen more times than I care to remember . The poor deserving sucker gets squat , while some wing-nut walks off with the booty .Thought maybe if I wrote it down
at least some small recognition would be given . Thanks.
