Determined Mind - Poem by David Harris

Goals are something we set ourselves,
each and everyday.
Sometimes we reach them,
other times we won’t.
The ones that seem impossible
we will reach them one day.
For nothing is impossible
no matter how much
we tell ourselves it is so.
With a little determination,
we will reach those goals,
no matter how high.
We will make them possible
the harder we try.
Someone once said
man would never fly.
The proof is in the pudding,
just look up in the sky.
And why did it happen?
It happened through the thought
of a determined mind.

    You must always set goals in your life, it gives you something to strive for, and when you have them, set yourself some more...10 (Report) Reply
