Dedicated to my friend Rick K., who was looking for a poem from something I'd written.
Whether you sit in a swivel chair,
Or ride a rodeo steer,
Life is wild, a challenging dare,
That in the brave strikes fear.
So go with a chuckle, belted in,
And let the winged bird fly,
Take off with God for a whirl and a spin,
Give up the whine and sigh.
With tons of faith and a bundle of grit,
You're good for the longest haul;
Look life in the eye, for the fight get fit,
Wherever you sit, sit tall.
