Standing on The Rock

Bird standing on rocks

I will never give up or in

Though the way is hard and long

Through fortitude I’ll win

I will never give up or in

I have Christ’s power within

To help me stay strong

I will never give up or in

Though the way is hard and long

Have You Ever?

Sailing ship on calm water

Have you ever been told “No!”

Stopped when you wanted to go

Denied passage within

Rejected for the color of your skin

Refuted for something you’ve said

Sought friendship but were scorned instead

Vetoed for taking a stand

Mocked for the goals you’ve planned

Nothing but bills in the mail

Everything you try seems to fail

You’re not alone my friend

I’ve gone round and round that bend

Someday our ships will come in

Someday it’ll be our turn to win!

Rhyme

“Never, Ever, Give Up!”

#OctPoWriMo Day 5

Prompts:

Denied, Refuted, Rejected, Spurned, Vetoed

They Said—I Said

Big tree

They said “Just give in”

They said “You’ll never get far”

They said “ You won’t win”

They said “Just give in”

They said “ Don’t even begin”

They said “Who you think you are?”

They said “Just give in”

They said “You’ll never get far”

I said “ I won’t give in”

I said “ I’ll make it someday”

I said “ I will soon win”

I said “ I won’t give in”

I said “ I will begin”

I said “ I will soon find a way”

I said “ I won’t give in”

I said “ I’ll make it someday”

Double Triolet

Written to all the Naysayers from a Yaysayer

“Never Ever Give Up!” “Stand Tall” “Grow”

(When I saw this huge tall tree on my walk the other day these thoughts came to mind)

Sorry!

Sorry! game

On a journey to reach Home
I Start out as number 2
But I get a second chance
That’s not good for you

Sorry!

Counting on the luck of the Draw
To move me forward on the Path
My colorful little Pawn
Procures the Card of wrath

Sorry!

It’s a frantic race to make it Home
You bump me and I bump you
But one of us will win in the end
Oh Wow! Look at the card I drew!

Sorry!

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
