Sunday Sonnet!

IMG_3398 (WP)

Let not inclement comments mar delight
In having reached, at last, a cherished goal;
Achievement did not come without a fight,
Transcending obstacles beyond control;
No golden spoon adorned your lowly birth,
Nor carpet, red, your advent trumpeted,
No wherewithal to tell your earthly worth,
Sheer giftedness your heritage, instead;
Disparagement from rancid, privileged peers,
Determined, hungry motivation fuelled;
While kindly smiles subordinated smears,
And generosity your heart bejewelled.
Persistence paved Determination’s way,
While Perseverance underpinned each stay!

  4. Oh … I do so love this! It reminds me of my own life … no silver/golden spoon, no red carpet, only lots of hard work and a (mostly, I hope) kind heart. Thank you, my dear friend … I rather needed this tonight!
