A video of my poem entitled Don’t Give Up!

A while ago I wrote a poem encouraging myself and others not to give up. I posted it on my blog under poems. Then I had the idea to make it into a video:

I posted it on my youtube channel and now I’m creating even more videos.  If you subscribe, you’ll see each new video as they come out.  I’m mixing things up a bit and creating numerous types of videos for my subscribers….all inspirational in nature.

I love getting to know my readers and viewers.  Feel free to leave comments and I’ll be sure to respond at my earliest convenience.

Thanks for being part of my creative process!  Cheers!

Don’t Give Up

When you’ve tried your best,
Been challenged and tested,
And you’re still wading through the muck,
Don’t give up.

When your dreams aren’t handed,
To you on a silver platter,
And you feel like nothing matters,
Don’t give up.

When others tell you
How wonderful their lives are,
Know that they too have scars.
Don’t give up.

When sorrow hangs around,
Like a thorny crown,
And everybody tells you to smile,
Don’t give up.

Life is a series of tests
And tribulations
With an occasional vacation, so
Don’t give up.

The sun always shines,
After it’s been gone a while,
Know you’ll make it through your trials.
Don’t give up.

For others are watching you,
To see what you will do.
And if they see you make it through,
They might not give up.
