Are You?

Dandelion growing in cracked dry ground

Falling through life’s cracks?

Or are you a ground breaker?

Growing in the hard places,

Blooming where you’re planted,

In spite of dry times,

Letting nothing hold you back,

From reaching your goal?

Modeling tenacity,

Like teeming dandelions?

Doubts

staircase
To win

Don’t dwell with doubts

Doubts are just traitors

They promote fear, cause loss

In life

They keep attempts from happening

Quench good and create losers

Do not listen

To them

Butterfly Cinquain

(Inspired by Shakespeare)

“Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.” 

-William Shakespeare
