Draw Strength – Ch#23 (Just one thing)
Best beat back the bitter devil,
Gremlins and demons of such kind,
Let not they take over your mind,
As frankly, they will dishevel.
Chose a path we’ll own and revel,
Draw strength from the will that survives,
From how well we have lived our lives.
At our end, we succumb to death;
When it comes to our shibboleth,
“Did good” … is regaled from archives.

Over the 62 days, in July and August, my challenge is to share the learning from each of the 62 chapters; hopefully in a poem, but who knows? Follow my progress with the #JustOneThing Tag
Happy to explore what you make of the post in the comments below? 🙂
