Ode to Perseverance

September 15, 2016 § Leave a comment

If I could take everything I knew…
sum it up, concentrate it to its core…
It is this- live your life for your own…
its your thing, nobody else is keeping score.

Fail not to be amazed by imperfection…
its the pretense from whence resolve is born…
Never look away from failure, the shame…
the greatest lessons hide in other people’s scorn.

Trust yourself to find the way…
don’t be sidetracked by the doubts within…
Allow yourself the joy of seeing things get done…
but never linger, for this joy is fleeting and thin.

At the end of the road, the light shines bright,
and only then, you will walk away from this fight.
