MY POEM - DETERMINATION

 

 

Determination is a measure of inner strength,

that drive to complete the task at hand

- accomplishing, without distraction

whatever you set out to achieve,

inspiring others by how you fight against

seemingly insurmountable odds.

Determination is unwavering conviction

to overcome whatever may happen to you.

It triumphs over all adversity.

Determination is an undoubtable belief

that you have the necessary fortitude to succeed,

no matter what you have to learn,

no matter who says you can’t do it,

and willingly putting in the endless hours and hard work

necessary to get it done.

Determination forges ahead to complete any arduous journey,

no matter how many potholes, flat tires or roadblocks

you may encounter along the way.

It’s looking back at a mountain just climbed,

remembering that first step and the resolve

to not let fear keep you from getting to the top.

Determination is single-minded perseverance

 

- in everything!
