Never Give Up

Never, never, never give up.
Winston Churchill
(Not on the world, and not on each other.)

The Power is Ours
©2013 Susan Noyes Anderson

If every star in heaven's sky surrendered to the night,
perhaps the moon would lose heart and concede the steady light
that anchors every one of us until the sun's return.
Our universe has much to teach us; will we watch and learn?

The brightness sought by all mankind is carried in each soul,
a birthright and a legacy to make our spirits whole.
The power is ours to be the stars that grace each other's skies
or vanish into darkness, vanquished by our own disguise.

This is beautiful - I'm going to remember this one as it's something I need to always be reminded of. It's hard to realize we can make a difference if we will just "step forward." Very inspirational.

Lovely words. I usually try to keep on going, unless it involves a project that just needs to stop (like knitting, which I suck at.)

Have a super Thursday Sue!

I love this. It is true and really resonated with me. We all carry a light inside and we can share that with others.
