    dotsGET UP AND MOVEdots

    don't sit around
    what was ever accomplished
    what was ever found

    By doing NOTHING
    I can't stand it
    we talk of action,
    but only SIT!

    Always speaking of moving
    but never and inch
    I find this crap

    Why the hell do we say things
    that we never DO?
    YES, I mean YOU

    Quit smacking your jaw
    about doing so much
    quit saying you'll help things
    you wouldn't even touch

    Quit sitting around
    and swatting at flies
    and SAYING you'll do things
    Your NOT paralyzed!

    GET UP and MOVE
    Have you no feet
    or have you been permanently
    glued to your seat?

    I'm Sick of our chatter
    about changing this earth
    it seems we've only been TALKING
    since the day of our birth!

      I read your journal & this & agree - we all sometimes procrastinate or wait for someone else or think we can't do anything to help...I thought this was catchy and encouraging and truthful.
    Like Frank says, Talk the Talk & Do the Walk - thought, expression - ACTION!
    Thanks for the reminder

      Hey Jel,
    Great poem! This is really great subject matter, it's a poem that I can really relate to. I really like the second to last stanza, the one about being glued to your seat. Great stuff, keep up the good work.

      I agree with this piece, I am no exception.. We need to get up and move and stop dreaming of making things better and do something productive. Great
    motivational piece.
    Love and Peace,

      A young lady of action...that is what you are. Very often we are good at talking the talk, but not so good at walking the walk.

    You pulled no punches here and good on you. I have told you before and I will say it again, you have real talent.
