Flowing Forward

Sign saying “Keep Going”

When weariness comes

Keep Going

Flowing like a river

Syllable Lune

I was a bit weary today. One of those days when doubts step in and began dragging you down and you just feel defeated, like you can’t go on, but then…I saw this sign on a shelf in a thrift store, it said: “Keep Going” and I felt it was meant for me, so I perked myself up and kept going, and guess what?

I had a great day! 😊

Think positive thoughts

Keep Going

Weariness will leave

Patriotic Pantoum

Flowing over me,
Come thoughts of liberty,
Every time our Flag I see,
Flying over land or sea.

Come!  Thoughts  of liberty.
I welcome you to dwell in me,
Every time our Flag I see.
For you’re a reminder I am free!

I welcome you to dwell in me,
Patriotic thoughts of liberty!
For you’re a reminder I am free.
At times I need you desperately!

Patriotic thoughts of liberty,
Every time our Flag I see.
At times I need you desperately,
Flowing over me.

Pantoum-rhyme scheme aaaa
(This is my first attempt at writing a Pantoum.  It was a challenge, and even more so, because I chose to rhyme it aaaa instead of the usual abab)
