POEMS COURTESY OF BLOSSOM

STRAYED

Straying from purpose,
forgetting my goals.
It wasn’t long I forgot who I was too.

Though problems weigh us down
But we shouldn’t dwell in them

We are winners, not quitters
We are Conquerors, not losers

Even when it seems like all is not working
We will not quit

Even when our strength fails us
We will find hope

We will keep moving
We are winners, so we keep winning
Today and every day.
