Presence Of Evidence


There is one thing I have learned,
From my remaining dedicated to a passion.
The seriousness is dismissed by others.
And insulting comments from those unexpected,
Come quick as if they had been given authorization...
To do it.

Some have even asked to forego my passion,
As if my loyalty and commitment was an ongoing joke.
With an intended provoking they readily invoked.
But I will admit this to anyone who has a dream...
Pursue it relentlessly!
Since that day will come to pass,
That those who 'had' laughed...
Will not need proof of a doing of those tasks sought done.
With a realized verification is available to anyone.

Assisted by a confirmation that has been researched.
And with a persistence of a delivery,
To have been followed and known from birth.

There is one thing I have learned,
From my remaining dedicated to a passion.
The seriousness is dismissed by others.
And insulting comments from those unexpected,
Come quick as if they had been given authorization...
To do it.

But with a living through sacrifices and obstacles to diminish,
It does not matter who critiques with their judgements to pass.
What matters more is the witnessing of those tasks,
One completes to identify...
With a conquering that establishes a personal success.
And this does not have to be confessed to embellish.
Not when there is a presence of evidence.
Relished to please the taste of one's flavor or not!

Giving in to give up,
Has never been my objective.
And learning from those with minds corrupt,
Has been a blessing that has enabled me to identify.
So these words I leave to those who 'try'...
Keep those dreams you have pursued.
Never let doubts undo them.
Never let doubts undo them.
To let go of your dreams would be self abuse.
Never let doubts undo them.
Keep your dreams pursued!
Reach.
And the presence of evidence will be yours.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
