Chapter One

Able-bodied and able-minded Be only one and one to find. It can allow you to achieve Lots of all that you believe. Imagine doing all you want to do Taking nothing more than a "Humph!" Yes! Know you can and you will, too!

Whispers call wherever you are, Over the hills and across the stars. Never does it falter, Distant though not so far. Echos that answer in a wisp, Relieve your guessing heart.

Try this: You ever really wonder who you really are? Or not? (I do.)

Be what you need to be Excepting what you want to see Lengthen how far you can really go Imagine your very own rainbow Evolve yourself into a truer form Value your heart and a new life is born Exceptional times will be your greatest joy. (Your teeth aren't the only thing you're showing off when you ...)

So much to say in such little time Make it the best with a simple rhyme It doesn't matter what's to be shown Laughter's a close friend it has known Enjoy every day with the best thing ever given to you (Take it from me ... A Good Smile Is What Makes A Great Day!)

Take the moment to unscramble these distiches to come up with the word ...

Caught in the midst of what seems right; Accept the fact that it has come; Endorse and it's the place to land. Never subtract, but keep the sum; Catch what comes when in your hand; Has nothing to do with the time;

Did you find your word ...? (If you didn't, try again and look for the rhymes.)

A ...

Fastidious but messy all at the same time ... Anger and confusion comes with no rhyme ... Making up when things start to go wrong ... Ignorant of outsiders until they are solved ... Love unexplained and bonds not measurable ... Yahoos and wackos to keep everything colorful ...

A G E

Adorned through your life, and Generalized in people's eyes, only Exceeds to make you wise.

(Gray hair or bald head? Wrinkled face or blinding eyes? Well, look at the bright side; At least you're not alone!)

"Follow in his footsteps", they say, Actually, they don't know the truth, and The fine line between destiny, Especially when it comes to you.

Remember ... Fate is not Coincidence ... Only deep inside can you find ... The true place you should end ...

(Wait a minute! If I'm not destined to save the world, then what am I here for?)

How do you keep yourself free? Act like you would normally Pretense doesn't create who you are Practice is the way to start Imagine, "Who is this I see?" Nothing else but a plain old "me" Engage in what makes you feel a jump So when you climb there are no bumps See everything for how they come.

(You gotta be happy. That's the essence of life!)

A ...

Dare or not, it'll come soon enough. Ready or not, you'll have to be tough. Exact and precise is not the best choice. At the right time you'll hear your voice. Miracles will bloom, when you dream ...

... is an imagination of the subconscious. It is a vivid visual of things that go beyond what you have ever believed. (Sometimes, I'm killing zombies and can fly ... WHOO!!! Bring it on!!!)

Hunger for the love you get Unleash yours in return Never let go of the thought "What if" Garnish every burn Equal out and weigh each option Respect and respect to learn.

(Hey, your stomach shouldn't be the only hunger you're worried about.)

Hunger for knowledge; hunger for growth; hunger for every opportunity that hopefully will pass your way someday.

Advantage:

There's a fine line between: "taking advantage" and "taking an advantage" ...

Only once you understand that advantage is a true gain; a true success conducted; a chance for you to earn something, not by deception, but by your own hard work ...

Then that is when you'll see all of the true advantages life has offered you ...

(On the contrary, I could always ... OUCH! Okay, okay ... Never mind ...)

Jump ahead into an hourglass Over the sands of time you'll pass Yonder beyond a life of past.

~~~ EQUALS ~~~

Little by little we learn each day All to teach and give away Unique and fascinating times we share Go beyond expectations we hold dear Heart to heart and hand in hand Together we find that we always can Especially when we find the catch Rewards are best every time we laugh.

The greatest creations in this world are our ...

Cherished moments from the start; Healing touches though far apart; Infinite fun throughout each day; Laughter and joy is what paves the way; Dances and dreams you both achieved; Reasons defined and hopes believed; Endless limits to always climb; Not but a tear from your heart when you say "Good-bye".

(Most of the time, anyways ...)

(Come on, Guys! Who doesn't ...)

Lifetime filled with memories Outstanding barriers crossed Valiant night and wonderous dreams Eternal life is embossed.

Livelihood is well-known Internal problems are solved Face each day to be past with External solutions all loved.

?????????????????????????????????????

(As far as I'm concerned, only those who don't know how to live ... Right?)

Forgive and forget, a well-tossed coin ... Undeny the token obviously not forged ... N-e-thing and anyone will be there to join.

Who makes a day fun? You ... and you ... (and you and you and you a ... whew! I need a breath) And that list will keep going on and on.

Life is not carved in stone Up in the sky only one star has shone Catch it in your heart and have faith Keep it close and you'll make it one day.

(In case you didn't know, you can make your own luck, too. Really? Yeah, really ...)

(Is it possible to UN-)

Make a turn, go right or left Inside or out, don't be too deft South or North, are you not sure? Take the gate or take the door? Ask the president or ask the vice? Kill the cards and roll the dice Except just don't do it twice.

Just because you made a mistake, that doesn't mean you killed somebody. (I hope ...) That's why it's called what it's called, a MIS-TAKE. You took something the wrong way and BAAM ... It hit you back. But don't let that stop you ... (Unless you really wanna fall.)

Everyday gloom is always grouchy Not only that, but a cup half-empty Jaunter away from a life so dull Only then to see the cup half-full Yourself will be the best to know.

To enjoy isn't neccessarily to only enjoy. It's to be happy and to smile. To have fun and make fun. So the saying, "Sit back and relax," comes hand in hand with "Enjoy." But that doesn't go literally unless you make sure of it yourself. (Preferably, I like to do nothing, too.)

Natural ... means Good ... (I think.)

Not factoried or massed And certainly not pressed Taken from the purest source Until all uncompressed Right from the center core An arrow from the heart, it'll Last longer than anything created only by part.

Only a door can do this and close Peek through it all to find your foes Everything you see will all make sense Noon to midnight, it won't be dense.

~~~A~~~

Pack a bag and carry it on your back Along the one way road, don't lose your sack Track the distance as you go past Hinder but never let it be your last.

~~~That's worth the~~~

Reach a point when you decide to stop Inhale the victory but do not drop Shake the hand nature offered to you Kiss it good-bye and get ready for round two.

Gathering close together for a secret hug Rather turned quickly into a magic rug. On the ride of your life, the carpet flies When finally you notice so many years have gone by.

It all started when you're created; (that's right!) Month by month you safely stay; (well, you try to stay safe) Day by day you find the strength; To make it past that one more day; (you only got 9 months)

And today you're 100 times who you were; Greater than before and more well-known; That happens everytime you grow.

Rebounded and returned Enables you to do more Since that is how you learn to bounce It is how you get to shore Sent back after you made it through That is only a way to glow Actions that you take from here Nails the points to help you grow Catch each one again and again Endless ways you'll find to begin.

Boing-Boing! Even a spring can't be nearly as tightly wound as you are. That's why you're far more capable to bounce right back. (I'm a little rubber band ...)

Happens that what you lost Only was a fraction of the cost Let go only of what's already gone Dream and believe and always hold on.

~~~ AND ~~~

However hard a time may seem Overcome it with your dignity Possess the strength to oversee Exceptional rewards you'll redeem.

As part of the love that we have to offer, through Friends and family, it only passes deeper. Fast roller coasters going on a downhill slide, Expresses the bonds it realigns. Countless times and times that pass, only Takes more and more love to everlast. Indefinite actions and moments turned, are One of the strongest connections returned, as Neverending and tender times are adjourned.

Secrets only you can know Promises to keep you strong Encourages you to keep on track Constant reminders of right from wrong Isolate your feelings and you isolate yourself Act as a stranger and you'll live like an elf Live by your heart, not on a shelf

Adolescence is how we once lived ... All the innocence we took to give ... Adolescence is how we once were ... Always carefree and so often sure ... Adolescence is our hearts today ... Accessible and young in its own way ...

Everyone wants to be young forever. (Heck, so do I!) That's where the saying, "Young at heart," comes in.

Remember no matter what your age is, there is always a part of you that lives young.

What's your comfort food? (Mine's rice.) What do you do to relieve yourself of everyday burdens? (?) Your young heart will always be there to help you find a way to keep you alive. (Okay!)

Magical Imaginable Radicals And Charming Lovely Essences.

Miracles aren't only "based upon a true story" type deals. It's a "based upon personal experience" type deal. (Personally, I've never had it yet, but I betcha know someone who has ...)

Everyone was not created the same Queens and empresses hold different reins Uneven bumps lie in each road Adjacent lengths run down each fold Little or big or short or tall In this universe, life has created all That just means that you should always look Yield and go inside each book.

Usually to gain a friend, is Naturally to listen, it generally wins. Deciding to hear out a voice that speaks Entails your search and what you seek. Responding and giving your way of thought Sounds reasonable, a meaning caught. Test each other and all around At the end there'll be even ground. Never will it quake or shake to the sands Delusions are all they are, when everyone understands.

Journals to keep as an Overture into life Ultraviolet experiences to Render your speechless flight Nothing less than a turn to go and Enter a passage created by you through Years of looking for another room. (The living room to the kitchen is SO not a journey.)

So in the end, the people of "The Kingdom of Esteem" all lived happily ever after ...

Right ...? (Fine. Be that way.)

Anyways, they all TRIED to live happily ever after. And this book (only this book) helped to guide them through our everyday lives.

THE END
