Worth The Ride - An Original Short Poem By S

Updated on May 19, 2012
Source

So many people

Have tried to take me down

So many people

Have tried to run me into the ground


But I never gave up

No matter what they did or said

I never let their lies

Or manipulations get in my head


Because I have dreams

That give me wings to fly

Dreams that are so real

I always had great things to live for

So I made the choice to fight on

Because I'd have had nothing to gain

If I'd just laid down and died


So many people

Have gotten me wrong

But I stayed strong

To carry on


I've taken my mistakes

And learned from them

With God on my side

And faith, prayer, and good actions

Have helped to turn the tide


Life is full of

Twists and turns

Ups and downs

But I've learned

If you keep the faith in good things

And never give up

It makes it all worth the ride.


- S.

      An interesting poem - never give up. I think I need that at the moment with the book I'm writing, actually have just completed, but now the difficult parts remain, applying for copyright for the quotes and all the 'housekeeping' things, so thanks for the most timely reminder!
