Maxine Smith

Fierce, focused, I’m exuding self-control 

Initiate my power, smash those goals

Graciously bite, to whoever says no

Hit hard back, with all of my life in tow

Trust in me and say goodbye to sorrow

      Haha we can all have our ‘can’t be bothered days’ mine where all Easter Holidays.
      Back on it today!!


      THANKS FOR SHARING MAXINE ~ I love Acrostics and Rhyming Acrostics are really difficult ~ I should know ! This neat Quintain has a powerful message "Don't lie down and submit ~ stand up and fight !" Half the words you use (like Fierce ~ Self-control ~ Power ~ Smash ~ Bite ~ Hit hard etc) are very assertive (aggressive even !) ~ No one is going to mess with you or give you grief ! WOW after digesting that I'm glad I'm your FRIEND ! Yours as always ~ BRIAN Love the resolve in you PHOTO !

        Sometimes we need to make a stand to stop being treated like rubbish and fight for what you deserve.
