November, 2012 Poem of the Month: “It’s Your Time”
Have a great month & Happy Thanksgiving!

“It’s Your Time”

Seasons come and they go, just as flowers bloom.
It’s as strong as the tongue, but some powers doom.
It’s all a choice, to speak death or life.
When lungs fail, still prevail for each breath you fight.

Stern is your shield.
Steady is your spear.
You earn as you build.
Ready for what’s near.

On wings of eagles one could soar fine.
Get ready to take flight, because it’s your time.
