Allison Ashton – “Lifted”

November 13, 2010 § 2 Comments

Throw out the streamers
Bring out the punch
Reach for the heavens and dream

Dress up “as you like”
With a smile and a hope
And bask in celestial theme

Kick up those red heels
And toss out your fears
They’re holding you back no more

Yes, life’s within reach
One heartbeat away
And it’s what you were put here for!

“Turn the Page”

August 27, 2010 § Leave a comment

You’re a volume still in progress—the outcome’s yet unknown.
Until you reach the graveyard, nothing’s set in stone!

If you’ve hit too many highways & your paths have tangled weeds,
Don’t forget that nothing’s static—you can always plant new seeds.

‘Cause every day has prospects—new horizons can be found.
Your book of life’s unfolding as you reach for higher ground!

If tomorrow holds some failure, then you’re doing a good job.
Since failure leads to triumph—your success will not be robbed.

Yes, your life can be a rewrite—you can whistle some new song.
You can turn the page and turn the tides…and still move on along.
