Ode to the Champions
By Tom Krause

Who are these people--
These doers of deeds,
These dreamers of dreams
Who make us believe?

Who are these people
Who still win the day--
When the odds are against them
And strength fades away?

These people are champions,
For they never give in.
A heart beats within them
That is destined to win.

They follow their dreams
Through the journey seems far,
From the top of a mountain
They reach out to a star.

And when they have touched it--
When their journey is done--
They give to us hope
From the victories they won.

So here's to the champions--
To all their great deeds.
They follow their hearts
And become winners indeed.



Carry On

by TOM KRAUSE

At times when you feel troubled -
when happiness is gone -
look to the heart within you
for the strength to carry on.

In the heart you will find virtues
such as faith and hope and love.
Gifts that have been sent you
from a power up above.

It is faith that keeps on searching
for the joy the soul hopes for.
It is love that heals the spirit
making it stronger than before.

And should your heart be broken -
if your strength should fade away -
the power of these virtues
will still win out the day.

So remember when you're troubled -
when happiness is gone -
look to the heart within you
for the strength to carry on.



The Person That Is Me

by Tom Krause

If ever you should meet me -
the image you may see -
is just a mere reflection
of the person that is me.

The person I am really -
the one down deep inside -
is made of many feelings
which I sometimes try to hide.

Feelings of doubt & worry -
wondering how I will fit in.
Feelings of hope & longing -
that someday I might win.

Feelings of frustration -
for answers I don't know.
Feelings for my loved ones -
relationships that grow.

Feelings of loss & loneliness -
of memories left behind.
Feelings of excitement -
for what I have yet to find.

So remember when you meet me
the image you may see
is just a mere reflection
of the person that is me.

"If you think you're too small to be effective,

You've never sat on an ant pile.

 

"If you think you're too small to be effective,

You've never slept in a tent

With only ONE mosquito in it.

 

"If you think you're too small to be effective,

You've never driven a car

With a bee buzzing on the dashboard"
