Perseverance is the light that overcomes the acts of others trying to keep you in darkness.
Just as light triumphs darkness, every act of perseverance dispels the harm others would lay upon you.
This image and the idea of perseverance have so been on my mind lately. I received an e-mail from a kind, wonderful person who is being mistreated. It made me want to write the following…
you have always been the walking wounded
twisting the soft, beautiful soul and spirit of others
into some maniacal crutch
as you gimped, staggered and dragged any
and all who came near
I am not your prop. I am not your crutch.
I am a woman of glory
who walks upon this land with a power
rightfully called by the single, holy name of “Mine”
And you in your feeble state, sadly played by you as if it were fate,
will not take one step ever again
upon my sacred land.
