Favorite Quote:
"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace." -Jimmy Hendrix


Drip, drip, drop, plop
She beats the ground with little sound.
Make the first stride but do not subside
Step, step, stop, flop.
Try again.

Drip, drip, drop, plop
She tiptoes to avoid foes.
Play hide-and-seek but promise not to peak
Pop, pop, pound, found.
Try again.


Drip, drip, drop, plop
She rides the bus with a fuss.
Find a friend and time will spend
Bad, bad, bare, there.
Try again.

Drip, drip, drop, plop
She holds a wheel with hope of another meal.
Do not mar the car
Gas, gas, gap, tap.
Try again.

Drip, drip, drop, plop
She feels a crack by the heart attack.
It is sore but know there are more
Cry, cry, crumble, tumble.
Try again.

Drip, drip, drop, plop
She has a girl and time will hurl.
Show her love and thank the above.
Kiss, kiss, kind, bind.
Perfect the first time.

I thought of this poem when I drove for the first time and my mom told me I was growing up too fast. When I almost crashed the car I realized we all make mistakes in life, yet, there are things that we will never fail at.
