Never Give Up…A Poem

11986535_10200939315161612_7221879607961230391_n

I cried out to the wind,
the wind answered ‘fight!’
I shouted to the rain,
the rain answered ‘stand up!’
I pled with my heart,
 my heart said ‘forgive!’

I argued with my soul,
 my soul insisted ‘keep giving!’

I doubted my mind,
 my mind said ‘question!’

I fought with my tongue,
 my tongue replied ‘first listen!’

I wanted to give up,
 my breath demanded ‘keep walking!’
