Perseverance,

Recognition

Personal Emission.


This is where

I am in my Life.


It’s nice to know

That

The aging process

Stimulates –

Not hinders –


Growth.


Sometimes

Growth is painful…

(especially emotional growth)


…but I have discovered


That


When I was created

I was gifted with

A Strength,

A Knowledge,

And the ability

To go Inside,

Seek out the message,

Analyze it,

Bring Truth to myself.


And


Follow the Path

Of

Perseverance.


My Blessing

Of Life


Is not

In

Vain.

Well said. There is so much inside of us that can be unleashed through perseverance and persistence. Growing pains affect the heart and mind as much as they do the body... but through the metamorphosis emerges a beautiful soul. powerful words, Shauna.

There is a transformation which occurs as we persevere. We become the very essence of that which we gravitate to.

Your poetic words flow with your own orchestration painting a message for all to inhale.

Voted UABI and sharing. Pinned to my poetry board.

Peaceful and loving thoughts to you, my friend.

Funny that today, I picked this one to read again. It was one of the three values that my former company used as their slogan. Your poem is as beautiful today as ever.
