Gee? How positive can you be…with all the negatives you do see?
Do you always get what you wish?
Even when you fish?
Positive guts do persevere, everywhere,
That’s Having what it takes, even with mistakes.
Ugh! How patient can you be…when all the world isn’t free?
Do you say what you will?
Even when you cower or are dour, sour filled?
Patient guts do show, wherever you go,
That’s Having what it takes, be careful what sounds you make.
Tried & true? How persistent have you been…do you try, try again?
Do you think out loud whatever you’re about?
Even when you want to swear and shout?
Persistent guts must be yours you see, learning nothing’s ever free,
That’s Having what it takes, even when you ache.
Strong? How passionately do you pray…to do His Will each and every day?
Do you share with loved ones what you truly care?
Even though their ridicule you do fear?
Passionate guts do claim…serve others with a positive, patient, and persistent aim.
That’s Having what it takes…till in Heaven with The Savior you awake.
