INSTANT PUDDING
by Michael Sage

You work so hard to earn your daily dough,
Sweat from your brow, runs down to your little toe,
Your future harvest comes from that, which, today, you sow,
But sometimes success seems so very, very slow.

Good times will come and good times will go,
Like the ocean tides with their ebb and with their flow,
Times will come when you will struggle, and feel, so very, very low,
And there’ll be times when you can go and go and go.

You can’t just hang around and wait, like some old Sloppy Joe,
But also caution to the wind, you must never, never throw,
And time itself, must never become your great, big & ugly foe,
Time is non-existent, although it doesn’t always seem that it is so,

Life is not always like an arrow, released from a wooden bow,
But rather like the grass beneath your feet, waiting to grow,
Have patience, before you wield your sharpened hoe,
Thereafter, to the world, your bounty you can show!

KEEP ON KEEPING ON
by Michael Sage

We’ve all had times, when the going gets tough
The smooth ride suddenly, feels bumpy and rough
The good times are gone, it’s all rather gruff
You let out a sigh and exclaim – “I’ve had enough”

We are all entitled at times, to gripe and to moan
What’s happened to my life, you say with a groan?
My backpack seems weighed down, by a very big stone
How do I move away, from this miserable zone?

When a curved ball hits you, through a trick or a con
Remember the good days, when the sun always shone
Go forward with the belief, that you already have won
The best advice I can give, is to keep on keeping on

LEADERSHIP
By Michael Sage

Don't always seek the most comfortable seat,
nor envy someone else's feat,
nor follow close behind another's feet,
but rather keep in step to your own beat.

LIFE IS
By Michael Sage

Life is like a river, constantly flowing,
Life is like a tree, constantly growing.

Life is like the desert, constantly changing,
Life is like the oceans, constantly re-arranging,

Life is accepting, both others and yourself,
Life is understanding, and believing in oneself,

Life is committing, and doing the best you can,
Life is believing, and being your own very best fan.

Life is for loving, and also for caring,
Life is for helping, and giving and sharing.

Life is the seeds that you plant each day,
Life is creating a better world in which to stay.

LIVE FOR TODAY
By Michael Sage

There are times when life seems to be a dark shade of grey,
Your problems seem overwhelming & your nerves begin to fray,
The expedition you’re on, seems to be in total disarray,
And instead of being the hunter, you feel more like the prey.

Don’t get caught up in slander, nor gossip or hearsay,
Don’t dwell your mind on bad things that others have to say,
Don’t think about disaster or believe the worlds in decay,
Else you’ll continue your slide down that hellish slipway.

Don’t waste time or dwell on the regrets of yesterday,
Or walk around as if you have some broken vertebrae,
No one has burdens than GODS scale cannot weigh,
HE’LL never give you challenges if it would lead you astray.

Believe in the wonders brought forth with each new day,
Feel refreshed so as to tackle whatever comes your way,
Be joyous and happy as you climb on life’s Golden Highway,
Don’t fear tomorrow, plan if you must, but live for today!

LUCK FOLLOWS ME
By Michael Sage

I have it all - some say I got it all for free
Everything I do, turns into a leafy golden tree,
The waters part for me, even in a turbulent sea
I have it all you see, luck just seems to follow me

My kids are healthy, happy and totally free
My wife - caring, special and oh so lovely,
My life is full of special souls, they’re my family
I have it all you see, luck just seems to follow me

My life is filled with love, yes, true love, I do decree
I give myself to love, like an ever present devotee
Every hug and kiss I treasure and accept with glee
I have it all you see, luck just seems to follow me

I never hobble through life as though I am an amputee
No shackles can hold me back, I am not a detainee
Obstacle are faced head on, I never run away like an escapee
I have it all you see, luck just seems to follow me

Life is not a bed of roses, and at times it’s like a judas tree
Life is beset by problems, but from them I never flee
Every problem is welcomed, as an opportunity
I have it all you see, luck just seems to follow me

In life nothing is for sure, there is no guarantee
My life was spent perfecting what is now a ‘life degree’
I am so blessed that you simply must agree
I have it all. You see, luck just seems to follow me

MONEY, MONEY, MONEY
By Michael Sage

Money, money, money – it’s such a wonderful word
Some say it’s the route of all evil, how stupid and absurd
It’s the most uninformed statement I ever have heard
Usually made by the unsuccessful or the monetary nerd

Others say that money makes the world go round
Whether it’s the Dollar, the Yen or even the Pound
Money has a nice ring to it, such a wonderful sound
Using it wisely can secure your future, so I have found

Some pray for health and happiness & others for money
If its money you pray for, don’t be left feeling awkward or funny
Money changes lives from extremely dull - to bright and sunny
So ask God for whatever you want, even a life of milk and honey

OPPORTUNITY
By Michael Sage

Opportunity comes - opportunity goes,
Which is the right one - nobody knows,

Sniff out the good ones - use your nose,
Then act on your goals - stay on your toes,

Put plans into action - arrange them in rows,
Don’t be distracted - especially by foes,

Expect a bumpy ride - don’t see them as woes,
By never giving up - your opportunity grows,

The extent of your success - in time it shows,
For everyone to admire - what a beautiful rose!


~ Michael Sage Poems ~


TRUE WISDOM
By Michael Sage

True wisdom is not when we judge or ridicule one another,
As none of us are better than one from the other.

True wisdom is not all the facts that you think you know,
Every time you open your mouth for the entire world to show.

True wisdom is not your version & the opinions you convey,
But rather tolerance, acceptance & understanding is the way.

True wisdom is usually conspicuous through silent interaction,
And shown by the deeds that you continually put into action!

WHAT A BLESSING
By Michael Sage

What a blessing it is to wake up every single day,
To hear the birds chirping as they go on their merry way,
And to watch the little squirrels as they come out to play,
Then to make ready for another crazy and hectic day,
Or maybe a walk by the stream or stroll along the bay -
 Thank you LORD for letting me live another precious day.

What a blessing it is to wake up every single day,
No matter if it’s cold, and the sky is dark and grey,
And I’m snuggled up in bed under my fluffy duvet,
Or if first light appears over a beautiful clear bay,
And the sun touches my heart with a piercing little ray -
Thank you LORD for letting me live another precious day.

What a blessing it is to wake up every single day,
To go about with whatever I have planned for the day,
Then to retire at the end of it, happy and gay,
Even if my bed be in a barn on a prickly bed of hay,
And the horses say goodnight with a friendly little neigh -
Thank you Lord for letting me live another precious day.

What a blessing it is to wake up every single day,
With all these blessing I have no option but to say,
Life is so wondrous, and admit that really all is okay,
As we go down on our knees and with thanks we pray,
Before we drift off into dreamland, far, far away -
Thank you LORD for letting me live another precious day!
