Determined Posted by JMC813 on February 5, 2015 How can the sun so quickly stop shining When all other stars are seemingly in line? What makes such a positive point of view Turn instantly to a cold and bitter outlook? Simple obstacles turning smiles to frowns As this world seems to conspire against us Nothing will prepare them for this fight Prideful determination cannot be denied Walk in our shoes and it can be easily seen Minor discouragement has not what it takes To pull apart the seams of what is meant to be Take my hand as we step onto the battlefield Do not look back as we face oppression head on Hardships will be plentiful, and barriers tall Yet no mountain is too high to climb together Treachery shall see us carry each other through While taking every opportunity to bury negativity Deep underground in a suffocation of dire regret For having ever misjudged sheer determination AdvertisementRate this:Share this:TwitterFacebookPinterestEmailLike this:Like Loading...

No words. Just brought a tear to my eye.
Thanks SG. Determination is a powerful weapon.
That it is. 🙂
I’m putting this on my poetry playlist 🙂
Thanks Souldier Girl
Weave you do, words that string to strum profound. Brilliant J’
This is so true ! I have to have a lot of determination everyday in my current situation
Thank you friend. I wish you all the best in keeping your strength and determination. Surround yourself with those who love and support you and no mountain is too high.
Yes I have the most amazing support network, I am very lucky ! i apreciate my family and friends everyday 🙂 and yes no mountain is too high. Happiness is a journey not a destination , everything I have been through has shaped me 🙂
Much respect to you friend.
Awesome writing my dear friend. I have no words, love it.
Thanks Patty. So good to see you here again. I figured you might be able to relate to this piece. Be well and keep inspiring.
This is so encouraging and beautiful. In my case, I’m having to let go of some horrible tragedies to push forward. However, knowing I have the support of the people who love me is the sun in my darkness which is more of a dawn at this point. It’s just a matter of tearing down rotting fences.
Tear down the rotting fences and build new fortress walls with the love and support of those that surround you.
Working on it. 😉
I had to read this response to my mother-in-law today. She Swooned. I was like, I know right? 😉

I’m just going to say YOU ARE AWESOME!
Thank you Dana.
Ok. This. All of it. Such a fighting spirit. You’re officially the Beyoncé of my wordpress experience. 🙂
Thanks so much Peacock. If Beyoncé is who emotes that fighting spirit in you musically, then I am happy to be the WP version of anyone who brings that out in you. So flattered. Keep your head up and push onward my friend.
