A True Grit, Found Within
There's a character found within us each,
that may make us all to stand tall,
No matter our size, or if we're rich,
is possessed by the great and the small.
One of such a natural resource, this is,
and to be held within us at our birth.
That differentiates the successes in life,
a true statement of everyone's worth.
A true grit, and such a driving force,
to be found deep inside, for our needs,
If we search, we shall find it there,
all the same, without a name. it precedes.
It's the courage of old George and Abe,
and soldiers who fought in all the wars,
That to embrace by men and women in space,
and truly perpetuates our very cores.
So mommas raise your babies, those dears,
not to live in worry, to understand their fears,
Fathers take the commanding roles, the leads,
to see that the family achieves, then succeeds.
Always to take a closer look down within us,
to grasp the spiritual strength, a treasure there,
A better day, in what we may do, to say,
as our acts spring forth, all excellence, to share.
