A True Grit, Found Within

Updated on May 4, 2013
A spirit within us each.
A spirit within us each.
Put worries and fears aside.
Put worries and fears aside.
Be happy.
Be happy.
Storms may come to every home.
Storms may come to every home.
Hope springs eternally.
Hope springs eternally.
a strong tomorrow.
a strong tomorrow.



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.

      Whonu, I just love your positive attitude. We all have what it takes to succeed and to see the beauty of life; it's within us. Life is what we make it. Sometimes we don't have choices, but we always have the choice to make the best of what comes out way, to overcome and reach for the stars.

      Happy Sunday, my wise friend!

      Profound words here that we all really do have that "true grit" in us and we should exercise it daily in our lives, especially us mommas and fathers no doubt!

      There is nothing to fear . . . as He tells us, "Whom shall I fear?"

      Very beautiful write and insight.

      Voted up ++++ and sharing

      God bless, Faith Reaper
