Be Encouraged


When you have been inspired to do great things in life
The road ahead will be filled with many a trouble and strife
You've tried to succeed many times but always seem to fail
Maybe the path you have taken is worn so try another trail

The path that is set before us is filled with many a gravel
There is many a curves set before us and can be difficult to travel
So don't give up and keep the faith, not accept failure as your fate
That is when success will step in and open up the gate

Many signs are set before us to show us the way to go
We ignore the very things that keeps us in the know
It seems like success takes a long time to enter in
When you feel like giving up is when faith steps in and win

    ..... 'not accept failure as your fate'...Yes, when we persevere with hope, may be after taking a different track, that success steps in and opens the gate! As Samuel Johnson says- Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance''! Often it is when we are about to give up, that success steps in! A great message so valid in all times, put in lilting verse! ! (Report) Reply
