Stop If'n

Lawrence S. Pertillar 2947 (Connecticut)



Stop if'n as to dream ifs wished.
The only way progress to move forward,
Can be identified to realize it.
Is to not be afraid to make mistakes.
Admitted made.
And let go of those ifs.
With effort attempted to endeavor.
Leaving excuses to ignore and not hear.
From the ones who 'if'.
As IF...
Their butts were made to sit and complain!

Stop that if'n.
Leave it behind.
Tighten up that butt.
Do this and find it okay,
Not to whine and complain.
About everything.
Even though...
This to do these days,
Maybe valid.
But refuse to toss this in your salad!
Don't if.
Do!
And feel good about it!
