My Week 17 ended this way
And all that Nature made thy own,
As if were made for you alone,
Floating in air or pent in stone,
Harmony in every tone,
Will rive the hills and swim the sea,
As for you, it came to me,
And, like thy shadow, follow thee.
With love and peace your destiny.
AND NOW THE NEW STUFF BASED UPON OG MANDINO’S THIRD SCROLL, FOUND IN HIS CLASSIC, “THE GREATEST SALESMAN IN THE WORLD.”
Each day I greet with love in my heart.
Each day in life’s journey is a promising new start!
In my willingness to charge onward where most dare to tread,
Marks the depth my desire to achieve what’s ahead!
Nor will any the failure deter in my quest;
I consider all as great lessons, as I’ve done all the rest!
If pain and discomfort descends on my way,
Steals all of my joy, as the dark does the day;
As long as forward my movement, even if blinded I come to be,
May have stopped all the others, but all the others simply aren’t me!
If alas all should seem hopeless, and fill my mind with despair,
As long as breath fills my body, my faith takes me there!
Though silence unbroken gives no sign or a token,
The voice of victory more the louder, as if 1000s have spoken!
With praises imagined, and none yet I earn,
Skills grow as I go, and it’s these that I learn!
With value I’m given in every detail my attention,
Stronger and still stronger, my mind in complete comprehension!
Each thought is a key to unlock one more door,
Behind which, still a mystery, nonetheless, something more!
Persistence alone can lead to success.
That’s the least I can do, for I desire no less.
Unlike those, who become successful, retire, and rest,
I keep on going and going, for that’s me at my best!
Because quitters never win, and winners never quit!
And no crown big enough, or glory great enough to stop me — nary a bit!
