Determination (a Haiku)

Life's challenges...
Life's challenges...
Storms of life may come...its clear...
Storms of life may come...its clear...
Don't lay down...stand and face the music...dear...
Don't lay down...stand and face the music...dear...
A better day is near...
A better day is near...



Strength, the resolute,

Unwavering in true grit.

Courage...absolute!


Life time challenges,

Seem harsh... for one to withstand.

Life's own passages.


Steadfastness...backbone,

Perseverance, having guts.

Fortitude that's shown.


When one is knocked down,

Then, stand up...face the music.

Success comes around.


Tenacity...true pluck,

It's meaning. as considered...

Is more than just luck.

With determination and our resoluteness...we shall weather life's storms...to persevere.

Hanging there in the face of storms is so much more than luck and good fortune. Good poem.

You have a real winner here, and in order to be a winner, you can't just up and quit, as you have proven.
