Day upon day
night after night
words penned to paper
until they’re just right
Hope upon hope
perseverance pays off
with hard work and diligence
a dream is not lost.

This intriguing and persevering creature lives at the back of my garden.
My poem was inspired by a brief bio I read about the author,
He was a truck driver and ex-marine
who flunked English several times,
but he wanted to write a book–
so he did.
He persevered day by day
until he’d written the best-seller, Exodus.
Here’s a 2 minute video about him:
Perseverance means showing up day after day and putting down the effort.
Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial,
because when he has stood the test,
he will receive the crown of life
that God has promised to those who love him.
