The Wall

It rose up from the ground so tall
An obstacle, a wall
It towered ahead to make me think
I’d hit it and would fall
And fail and give up all in one
This wall that was so high
With bricks and steel that blocked my path
I wanted just to cry

To run away and not look back
Surrender and give in
For such impediment in place
Meant I could never win
It hindered and it hounded me
It overcame my will
It won the battle in my mind
Lost hope that did infill

My every thought filled with despair
The wall had won the day
Or that’s at least what it did think
Until I found my way
To muster perseverance with
Determination new
For with these two sat at my side
The challenge could renew

And might and mind combined in one
To move on; motivate
And now the wall has fallen down
Powerless it can’t create
A block, a hitch or hurdle
For it’s gone from whence it came
And now I’m right back on the track
Right back and in the game!

Don’t Give Up!

If you’ve been so very lucky
To get the results you wanted to
Then take a bow and then move on
To your chosen pastures new

But if you’ve not got what you hoped for
Then don’t give up or despair
Because there’s more success in failure
When you carry on from there

For to realize true potential
Sometimes takes a few attempts
So go on forth with focus new,
And perseverance not exempt

For with determination fostered
With motivation new
And a little bit of self-belief
There’s much more for you to do

And who’s to say that it won’t be
Better than that you had hoped for
Because life is full of opportunity
That unlocks and opens doors

So dust yourself off and regather
And get on your za za zing
Then step out proudly in the knowledge
That you’re quite simply amazing!

For the skill in life isn’t always
To walk on down an easy way
But to navigate these obstacles
Enjoying each and every day!
