Temptations come and they make us a mess,
They cause us to become that ball of stress,
These threats push us to give it away,
We struggle to find a safe place to stay,
But with patience we can learn to hold on,
And with persistence we can be strong.
Not giving in to the give up is acknowledging the temptations that come to all of us, that threaten us to give it away, but it’s about holding on in any good way we can. It’s in knowing that, somehow and some way, we can hold on. And when we do, surmounting one challenging time at a time, we stay in the game. Staying in the game is the art of persistence. And persistence will get us through, eventually.
