Persistence


Persistence is a lonely road

I have taken many times

my feet are torn and weary

my heart beats slowly

with fears out of control

 

Persistence claims its toll

at every stop I make

There is no such thing as a break.

But one thing I know to be true

in spite of difficulty or opposition

It will be ultimately my decision

to move forward

and not look back.

 

Because when I think I lack

the determination and patience

to continue on that lonely road

I think of all those before me

who never ever gave up.

I hear their voices

and I lift myself up again.

Persistence is my friend.

 

 

Points to Ponder


“It’s up to you

If you think you’re a winner you’ll win,

If you dare to step out you’ll succeed,

Believe in your heart, have a purpose to start,

Aim to help someone in their need,

Thoughts of faith must replace every doubt,

Words of courage and you cannot fail,

If you stumble and fall, rise and stand ten feet tall,

You determine the course that you sail.”
