Perseverance



Perseverance is surely the name of the game With every challenge before you It applies to the highest mountains you climb Ignoring distractions is the clue Roadblocks are there to test your patience The glitter of gold clouds your eyes Keep your nose to the proverbial grindstone Much success will be yours by and by I certainly haven't achieved all my goals But employing this theory through the years Has enabled me to increase the likelihood Of avoiding many heartaches and tears Working hard with the goal of cooperation Bendability when shown a new path You'll ultimately be placed in a higher standing Great success will be yours at last In closing please remember this friendly advice To assist you in climbing life's tree Compassion and patience are all important But perseverance is surely the key © Jack Ellison 2013

    Perserverance? Is that what they call our craziness... or the lingering smell after a good fart... Ahhhh... perseverance is the lingering smell of success. LOL... OH NO... I've truly joined your potty humor club! Such an influence you are!... Help me Obi Wan Cathie!

    I see you are now employing potty humour a lott more often in your comments box! Methinks it's not just my influence... methinks you were already predisposed to this stuff. Just an observation! LOL Cathie loved "Obi Wan Cathie" LOL Hugs, Jake
