Inspiring lines with a potent message

I CAME ACROSS this poem by Robert Brault on Twitter and was STRUCK by its inspiring message. It's like a short story with a somewhat unexpected ending and a POTENT reminder for all of us to FOLLOW THROUGH on our goals and dreams. It's called "A Poem Missing the Word Woulda."

In English, coulda, shoulda, and woulda (could've, should've, & would've) often go together when we talk about regrets about the past. It's true, isn't it? We do TIP OUR HATS to those who actually do something and act on their dreams instead of just making excuses later. (I would've done that if ...)

Robert Brault is a writer from Connecticut. His blog, A Robert Brault Reader, has lots of inspirational and insightful poems and quotes. You should check it out, especially if you like the poem above. He is also The Quote Guy on Twitter @RobertBrault1 

COME ACROSS - encounter; see
STRUCK (strike) - hit; impressed
POTENT - powerful
FOLLOW THROUGH on something - finish what you start; pursue completely
TIP OUR HAT to someone - recognize; acknowledge / tip of the LID (cover, as in a cover for the head) 

Btw, I'm also on Twitter @joeyu2nd and on Facebook as the small guide site. FOLLOW and LIKE! :-)
