Despite the insistence of what is more than one day. Are life challenges worth. They will continue on. With all the twist and turns of your journey.
It is the innate compass of guidance placed in all of us. Keep your faith. Don’t give in. Crawl if you must. Just don’t grow faint in the process.
You are life’s blue print, within always look. Deep within to that inner compass. That’s the place of truth and happiness. Of where true life unfolds and begins. . Like the cactus, that self-determined desert flower. Deeply dependent upon inner water for its self-sustaining survival. It’s that will and desire found within activated with hopes and dreams. Created will be the life, fueled with faithful power.
That life will be one that is quite miraculous.
Poet’s Note: Hope is the beginning of every step taken, along with a helping of faith moving forward when things appear the hardest. One step at a time you can make it. Peace and Blessings.
My name is Cheryl Denise Chandler and I have been writing for as long as I can remember. My very first publishing was through the YWCA here in Baltimore, Maryland. It was 1979 I work with the newsletter there. A couple of people on the staff took me to interview a very successful modeling agent. Mr. Travis Win-key. They had camera's, tape recorder and I performed my very first interview. I have a copy of that newsletter to this day wrapped in plastic. In 2008 I won Editors Choice for my poem “Disappointment and Anger”. Poetry. Com an affiliate of the International Library of Congress published my poem. The anthology named “Collective Whispers”.In 2010 I reached my goal of having 35 poems copy-written through the Library of Congress. This April 1,2014, I discovered April is National Poetry month.
