Subject: Martial Arts M&M poem needed

I have a request for a Martian Arts M&M. I was hoping I could get one of the talented poets to write a short poem for the Martian Arts M&M. Here is just a little that I came up with. Please add or change this as you wish. I can design the topper but can't write it.
Thank you so much in advance. Nancy in Mo.
ps. this is not about just one type such as Judo this will be about the Martian Arts in general .

Nancy,
Short, I could not do... ;-(

Martial Arts M & M’s
Red - For mental discipline
Green - For fluid, physical prowess
Brown - For mental courage
Yellow - For stretching skills that increase flexibility
Orange - For acquiring proper breathing techniques
Blue - For meditation that helps develop mental clarity
And if you find yourself sorely lacking, take the entire pack!

Engaging in the practice of Martial Arts can be done with a partner or also alone,
Reasons for studying this training are diverse, but many are well known!
The most popular is probably for developing a self defense skill,
However, personal fitness, meditation, discipline or sport could also fit the bill!
Some may participate in Karate, Judo, Tai Chi, Kickboxing or Tae Kwon Do,
Or even one of the many other forms, that we may not know!
Strong muscles, proper breathing and simple movements are talents that you must acquire,
A Martial Artist combines these with meditation to achieve lofty goals they wish to aspire!
So, if it appears, an extra boost you may need,
Select the M & M color that will help you succeed!

Nancy, I was at a loss so I took your great start and tried to rhyme. Hope it helps or jumpstarts something. I'm sure Crafty or someone will be coming up with something perfect for you. Shirley

even when challenged physically.

Green - For physical discipline
and keeping up your chin.

in life or performing on a stage.

Yellow - For mind, body and spirit,
and for keeping all superbly fit.

Orange - For showing compassion,
whether you've lost or won.

Blue - For dedication to the arts,
which brings a place in our hearts!

So ... Misses Nancy and Shirleyt,
I've read the comments, you left for me!
Therefore, the ribbing from the two of you,
Has challenged me to see what I can do.
A bit of sleep and a sharp knife to pare,
Has produced the verse, that you see down here!

Martial Arts practices help one learn to survive,
Be it in mind, body, spirit or to simply stay alive!
From a myriad of styles you can select to use,
The system and techniques that you choose.
So, when an extra boost in these areas you may need,
Select the M & M color that helps you succeed!

This ain't fair... because I can not come back in rhyme. But this time you did better and now it's down to quart size! LOL
Thank you so much now if I can find the time to get this made. Maybe I can do it between my naps. Thanks again Crafty Me2 for all your help. Nancy in Mo.
