Never Give Up
Amy M. Kennedy
~dedicated to anyone whose feeling down~

never give up...always believe in you
hold your head high...be who you are
don't listen to others...to yourself stay true
you can do anything...reach up and touch a star

you are someone special...you are a gem
dare to dream...let your spirit free
don't be afraid...to reach out on a limb
take a moment to breathe...and just be

life is short...time is of the essence
make each moment count...live for today
don't live for yesterday...live for the present
don't give up...stay true to yourself always.


 "Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is before you can meet again. And meeting again after a moment or a lifetime is certain for those who are friends."

"Fate exists but it can only take you so far,
Because once you're there
It's up to you to make it happen."

This one really speaks to me Aimster!!!!!  So many times people and circumstances get you down.  Sometimes I get all caught up in everyday trivial matters that I forget to...just be.  It's great advice and it's a great read.  Thank you so much for posting this tonite just when I needed it most.

 I think I could need - this in my life
I think I'm just scared - that I know too much
I can't relate and that's a problem
I'm feeling ...
If you're gone - maybe it's time to go home
There's an awful lot of breathing room
But I can hardly move
If you're gone - baby you need to come home
cuz there's a little bit of something me...
In everything in you.

I couldnt agree more. Thank you for reminding us. A real refresher to our minds. I believe this is mind over matter. Like no matter what I will be positive, I remind myself that life is a appetizer and i'm going for the main course. lol Lets don't forget the sweets afterwards. Now that's a pure sugar high. take care Aimster

Sweet Amy~
These are wonderful reminders to be who you can be ...
and be YOU !

'you are someone special...you are a gem'

And that's just what I believe you are, young lady ... a real gem !
You have a tenderness in your heart for others, Amy ...
may it always be.
Love you, gal.

you are someone special...you are a gem
dare to dream...let your spirit free
don't be afraid...to reach out on a limb
take a moment to breathe...and just be

......this one gives a lot of hope to the reader....

This rustic here sits forlorn, appreciating what you have done through this gentle poem of yours....words way beyond wisdom, Amy

Regards, sudhir


 My heart is pounding, my stomach's inside out
I'm feeling kind-a-shaky, my mind is full of doubt

All I ever think about, is fearing fear itself,
Wish I could unscrew my head and put it on the shelf

Everything is twisted, everything is oh so tight,
Don't know what I'm looking at, the lights are all too bright

My brain's about to crumble, spill out on the floor
Sweep 'em up. Throw 'em away, don't want 'em anymore

Clouds race across the sky, day turns into night,
Still there are the questions, no answers in sight

Everything is twisted, everything is oh so tight,
Starin' out the window, everything is just too bright

Brain's about to crumble, spill out on the floor,
Wish I could unscrew my head, and kick it out the door...

You know I'm feeling kind-a....Strange
You know I'm feeling kind-a....Strange

Amy,
How did you know I needed this so?
Just wanted to let you know that this made me glow.
For lifting spirits you've got a knack.
And talent is something you definitely don't lack.
Your poems are a such a beautiful sight.
Gosh, girl, you sure know how to write.
