Happy Thursday all. Thanks for joining me today. I’ve been absent from the blogosphere recently on account of feeling a bit under the weather.
Upon my return, I was blessed to come across the beautiful poem you are about to read.
As a poet, you know I’m a sucker for repetition and rhyme, but even more than that I love figurative language and a positive message. This poem by The Ink Owl is really a well-crafted piece which I’m sure you’ll enjoy reading as much as I.
Life before death, strength before weakness, journey before destination.

Slow and steady wins the race every time. It may not come first but slow and steady always emerges victorious for fast and furious even though it may not come last is so fleeting you’ll end up forgetting the moments which led to you coming first.
Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.
Be kind and fair To those who despair Show them you care Even when they stare Daggers behind your back Be kind and be fair Dare to show them you care Even when they do declare ”Be kind and fair, elsewhere.”
Hello there, friends. I’m Reblogging a poem I discovered on Paul’s blog. Even though I didn’t want to write🙈😅 this because I feel as though I’d be unable to paint a pretty picture of this poems poignancy. I’d rather it speak for itself.
All I can say is that it was a joy to read and that you’re missing out on some mind-watering food for thought if you haven’t read it yet
