Follow Me

Just start to read – I want to plant a seed – no time to stop and think we’re going full speed – one simple aim, progress, proceed – forget what you want, forget what you need – we’re doing good so far true indeed – we’ve got to keep it up, can’t stop to feed – just stay focussed, follow my lead – keep an orderly line we don’t want a stampede – people will get hurt, they’ll bruise, they’ll bleed – don’t be selfish there’s no place for greed – just follow the path, I beg, I plead – I know what I say, so when I speak take heed – we can do this together, on that we’re agreed – we have to love one another if we are to succeed – we’ve done it my friends, we’ve arrived, we’re freed.

…and I find myself amazed

all this creativity has me dazed

This award means a lot

Though I act like I’m unfazed


I would like to nominate Acoustic3


About The Oldstrong

"At the end of the day, day My momma told me don't let no one break me, let no one break me At the end of the day, day, Nobody, nobody, ever could stop me, ever could stop me At the end of the day, day You can't regret it, if you were trying, if you were trying At the end of the day, day I'm walking with a heart of a lion, yeah"

    Great to read by both children and adults alike, it’s the sort of values we try to instill with the young but packaged in an accessible blend of rhyme and rhythm : )
