nobody wants to hear about
the struggle.
but without struggle
there is no
reason for hope
or
tenacity
or
boldness
or
staying power
or
invention
or
betterness.
without
struggle
we are dead.
tomorrow depends
on the telling
of the struggle.
non-strugglers
are the death of the dream.
those who refuse
to hear
are
deaf to the hope.
no
struggle
no
hope.
no
hope
no victory.
no victory,
no conquerors.
no conquerors
no Kings and Queens.
no Kings and Queens…???
only hopeless slaves
who refuse
to hear the struggle.
me?
as a child of God,
i am the amazon
of my story.
the queen of my struggle.
the author of my hope
the master of my dream.
my struggle
not only
defines me…
it
refines me.
are you struggling?
