POEM: Perseverance

Perseverance - WomanWhen all the world is looming dark
And things seem not so clear,
When shadows seem to hover ’round
Lord, may I persevere.

When it seems everything’s been tried
And there’s no way to go,
Just let me keep remembering
Sometimes the journey’s slow.

I may just need to stop and rest
Along the path I trod,
A time to try to understand
And have my talk with God.

As I gain new strength to carry on
Without a doubt or fear,
Somehow I know things will be right,
And so, I persevere.

~Anne Stortz from Chicken Soup for the Unsinkable Soul
