Hold On - Be Strong - Poem by Godfrey Morris

There stands a tree! That dogged tree

that clings ever firmly by the raging sea

bravely it withstood a thousand wind-seizes

Yet still, it holds strong - with floated wings.

When life turns its side

and dreams take a hide

Hold on -
Be strong

When failures arrive

Keep dreams alive

Hold on -
Be strong

When facing decline

and hope clings on line

Hold on -
be strong

Surrender those tears

take strength from all fears

Be brave to the best

and firm to life's test

When great troubles draw near

cause pause, and you swear

When you put a fight

and day turns night

Hold on -
be strong

Hold on! Hold on!

As long as you can

Till no more tomorrow

to drown your old sorrow

When light fades away

and its never your day

Keep steadfast to dreams

and rise, be redeemed

Then will sunlight breaks free

from the dark cloud's vile glee

Remember you held

and strength led you well

In brief my dear friend

to you I must tend!

There's a lesson to your story

Hold on to your glory!
