It’s about how kids teach us to stay upbeat.
Think about how they behave at Halloween
There’s an inspiring lesson we can glean.
During trick-or-treat rounds, kids go house to house
Occasionally however, they come across a louse!
This louse is the one who isn’t around
Dark house, with no candy at all to be found.
“So what” say the kids! There are plenty more.
Houses have candy! For that we are sure!
No need for us to stop and whine.
There is hope indeed. Everything will be fine.
The next house has lights and plenty of sweets
We must, we will indeed have our treats"!
So the kids run with joy to knock on the next door
Incredible dedication their minds and hearts do pour.
The goal is candy, no matter what
No dark houses as obstacles … no “ifs, ands, or buts”!
So how can we take this lesson and learn
To stay upbeat at all of life’s turns?
It doesn’t matter if one house is dark,
We must persevere and make our mark.
Kids teach us to stay focused on our goal
Ignore the dark houses and you’ll be on a roll.
There’s one more idea before I close
We’re almost done with this whimsical prose.
At Halloween it is easy for kids to excite
But what happens when it is homework night?
When their mood is down and their motivation is ill
Remind them that they possess an incredible skill.
Focus and dedication that motivated them on Halloween
If resurrected will render the best success they've seen.
Good luck to all as you pursue your goals
This I say from my heart and my soul!
