If I was a jeep
I will climb every mountain
no matter how high; how steep
no matter how stiff; how deep
I will wade on; strive spot on
and break and take
and shake and stake
all i got to succeed
in this bumpy ride of life
with waves and tides
that I can go against
that I can grow amongst
I will get spare tires
firm pumps to stand bumps
I will glitter in the metallic
to create a brand
I will avoid the sporadic
to make a stand
If gravity rares it's head
on the mountain top
I will clip it's presence
and birth a stop
if life dealt you a hard blow
ready; steady and blow back
if the mountain too high to reach
ride strong and make a mark
an imprint of the road to apex
that you may have a tale to tell
to posterity and all; a story to sell
but first is the success
the last lap of progress
If I was a jeep

David Abraham Claim this poet

Here, an opportunity to say a big THANK YOU to ALMIGHTY GOD for giving me the gift of poetry, it is indeed a beautiful thing especially the positive energy of expression and the passion. I discovered my gift of writing and poetry quite early but only much later in my life did I start to put it to use. I was quite active in the old poetry.com and won one poetic pin, several poetic accolades and one of the poets of the year in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007. Presently, am writing my second unpublished inspirational book and also putting together a poetic book due to be published later in the year. email address: mypoeticcareer@yahoo.com. Be in touch friends. more…
