Perseverance is Key

Two steps forward, three steps back. That's the way it seems life goes sometimes, barely moving forward at a snail's pace. Perseverance is key. Life is worth the living, though hardships may beset. Nothing worthwhile will be easy. Sometimes you have to fight. Perseverance is key. Follow the Yellow Brick Road worked for Dorothy in the "Wizard of Oz", but she still faced a few setbacks. Perseverance was key. Keep on seeking, keep on moving, don't give up hope. Even Noah had to wait for flood waters to recede. Perseverance was key. And once you reach your goal, Rejoice and Celebrate! But don't stop your forward movement. Don't become complacent. Perseverance is key.
