"TO MEET A DREAM" From the start debacles pave life's road One grapples each to meet an elusive dream Let fulfillment be the greasy goad From the start debacle pave life's road Legends say perseverance lightens the load Steadfast faith soon ends the trek at a serene stream From the start debacles pave life's road One grapples each to meet an elusive dream. © Loreta C.

"CROSSROADS"


At the crossroads of life, a hasty predicament A choice to make, the right pathway to take Provoke the mind, to draw a wise judgement At the crossroads of life, a hasty predicament Prudence and perseverance are life's brilliant elements To wield like shining armors, either to make or break At the crossroads of life, a hasty predicament A choice to make, the right pathway to take. © Gus Perez Amio


 

"LEAST EFFORT BUT NOT LAST"


Perseverance in every effort Be a turtle to win the life's race Prosperity can be seen in divine comfort Perseverance in every effort Least but not last whatever the cost Strive with lofty ambitions, there's grace Perseverance in every effort Be a turtle to win the life's race.

"PERSEVERANCE IS MY WAY"


To succeed, perseverance is my way. Hard sacrifice for years in order to rise, study at night and work during the day. To succeed, perseverance is my way, One must brave storms that come at bay. Life comforts sometimes one denies, to succeed, perseverance is my way Hard sacrifice for years in order to rise. © Dolores Lapinid
