If I Was A Mayor

Daily Prompt: We Built this City
What do you love most about the city/town/place that you live in? What do you like the least about it? If you were mayor, what would be the most important problem you’d tackle? How would you tackle it?


I live in the city of Houston. It’s a large city, too large for my taste. I am a small town person where everyone knows everyone else. The most pressing problems are good schools and too congested roads.

Houston is a warm city. You don’t have to face snow storms like other cities in the North. It’s good for my arthritis. Although the children were excited when they learned there was going to be snow. They waited but alas their expectations came to naught. We are having cold weather but that’s it. But the weather is fickle, fluctuating from 77 degrees to 42.

If I was a mayor, what would I have done
Tackling the problems, one by one
Better environment, roads and schools
Finding solutions, I would have won
If I Was A Mayor

Hold On To Your Dreams

Daily Prompt: Against All Odds
Tell about a situation where you’d hoped against all hopes, where the odds were completely stacked against you, yet you triumphed. Be sure to describe your situation in full detail. Tell about your triumph in all its glory.

Hold On To Your Dreams

Have Faith In God

Daily Prompt: Walking on the Moon
What giant step did you take where you hoped your leg wouldn’t break? Was it worth it, were you successful in walking on the moon, or did your leg break?
Show RISK.


When you take a risk, with faith in God
He will look after you, that’s what you thought
It happens, miracles abound
Have faith in God, that’s what you are taught

Let’s take a leap and hope for rewards
Look for happiness, you have sought
Things unknown are there, that’s for sure
Go ahead with all you thought
Have Faith In God
