Thinking : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

If you think you're beaten, you are.

If you think you DARE NOT, you don't.

If you'd like to win, but you think you can't,

It's almost a cinch you won't.

If you think you'll lose, you're lost,

For out in the world we find

Success begins with a fellow's will,

It's all in a state of mind.

If you think you're outclassed, you are.

You've got to think high to rise,

You've got to be sure of yourself before

You can ever win the prize.

Life's battles don't always go

To the stronger or faster man,

But soon or late the one who wins

Is the one who THINKS he can.

-- a sinner saved (, July 11, 2000


There's no defeat in life Save from within -

Until you're beaten there,

You're bound to win.


-- striving (, July 11, 2000.

In caverns depth Erectus crept

Where silent voices spoke

Whatever heard not put to word

Yet gathered all the folk.

The musty air, the fire's glare

Whose shadows were revealed?

What great astound when silent sound

From all directions peeled!

Should not surprise how did arise

Our superstition old

That spirits dwelt and could be felt

Amid the dark and cold.

And so today we want to pray

And gather still in caves

Of arching stone, though just a clone

With apses, pews, and naves.

When your life has run amok,

Keep a-prayin'.

If your world begins to suck,

Keep a-prayin'.

When you smash your pick-up truck,

And are down to your last buck,

And you're starting to upchuck

Keep a-prayin'.

If the going gets too tough

Keep a-prayin'.

When the Tax Man calls your bluff

Keep a-prayin'.

When your dreams are empty fluff

'Cuz your lover's had enough

And he tells you what to stuff,

Keep a-prayin'.

When you hate the nightly news

Keep a-prayin'.

And when all you do is lose

Keep a-prayin'.

When your dog has got the blues

And thinks rugs are tasty chews,

And he pisses on your shoes,

Keep a-prayin'.

When your life is in a rut

Keep a-prayin'.

When your fortune's undercut

Keep a-prayin'.

Though God slams your windows shut,

Though he stabs you in the gut,

Though he kicks you in the butt,


Keep a-prayin' !
