The Prize

     Okay, one more from the poem of the month club.. Another mushy, sappy, romantic poem, fresh off the presses. This should appeal to the ladies more than the gentlemen I would think, but the romantic in me…Made me do it. I didn’t want to,,really..I swear guys, she made me, honest..

     Please enjoy it,


The Prize

 I cannot race the wind

that’s going nowhere.

I cannot count the stars

up in the sky.

I cannot walk on water

though I would dare.

If you are my reward

by God I’ll try.
