The Persevering Poets

Stairs in Woods

dear poet

don’t give up

we will not all write

epic poems

some will be

simple rhyming couplets

a cinquain

a haiku

perhaps an acrostic

as this was going to be

take courage

look inside your heart

what brings you pain

sadness

delight

like music

poetry reaches

from one heart to another

glorious sunrise to darkest night

and everything in between

whatever you’re feeling

wherever you are

whoever you are

you can be among

the persevering poets

“Let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up” (Galatians 6:9 ESV).
