You will not be defeated

I’m trying to write something beautiful


that inspires and is positive

And that makes you smile

Its hard these days, I know

I find it hard too; fear hardens

Like arid land

you need to dig harder


to find the fountain of faith

And when you find it

you need to hold it close

Like your favorite teddy

The one you didn’t let anyone near

when you were little

And scared of the dark

of the monsters – dead

or alive or in your head


If you’re feeling low

Look for it-

the rainbow

that made your face glow

when you were young

or the little worm

in the grass

that held your attention

and you couldn’t turn away

Hypnotized by it’s slow, steady pace

Take it slow, be possessed

by your own inner voice

Its there

Its what got you this far;

Let it warm you

Inch by inch

From your toes

to the tips of your fingers

to your beating heart and your thinking head

and let every strand of hair

be charged with renewed strength

For you are brave

and strong

and blessed

and you will not be defeated

Except unless

YOU choose to be
