Perseverance Poems

Perseverance Poems


Live your life like the wind.

Speed up when necessary,
And know when to slow down.

Slow down when life pushes so hard and fast,
You cannot consume anymore air.

Slow down when you can't see
Where you're going
Or where you're coming from.

Take time to stop and realize
What you have right in front of you
When you cannot find what you're looking for.

When you cannot find what you want in someone else,
Look inside of yourself.

Don't sweat the small things,
And make the best of the big things.

Cherish the experiences you've had,
And use the lessons you've learned.

Our lives are rubber bands,
Bending and stretching to fit
Even the most awkward situations.

You can adapt to anything,
Regardless of its size or shape.

You just have to realize and use
What you have in your own hands.

If you've started out in pursuit of your goal
And you've really tried with your heart and your soul,

but somehow things got out of control---

When you've tried your best to do what you should
And you thought this time that you surely would,

But once again, you didn't do good---

When you've worked so hard to follow a dieters way
And you fought to win a victory each day.

But one more time you went astray---

When you've tried so hard to yourself to be true
And do the things that you know you should do,

But once again you failed to come through---

When the road to success seemed much too long
And each temptation was oh so strong

And once again you gave in to wrong---

When you've told your friends what you planned to do
And trusted them to help you through

But soon discovered it's up to you---

When you know you must be physically fit,
But your hope seems gone and you're stuck in a pit

That's not the time for you to quit---

When the week seems long and successes few
And at weigh-in time you're feeling blue,

Remember tomorrow is just for you---

To start again means a victory's been won
And starting over again means a race well run

And starting over again proves it can be done
So don't just sit there---
