Legend

Rating: 3.2

The blacksmith's boy went out with a rifle
and a black dog running behind.
Cobwebs snatched at his feet,
rivers hindered him,
thorn branches caught at his eyes to make him blind
and the sky turned into an unlucky opal,
but he didn't mind.
I can break branches, I can swim rivers, I can stare out
any spider I meet,
said he to his dog and his rifle.

This poem is a true understanding of never giving up and perseverance. It really shows that if you believe in yourself, even if others believe in you or not, that you will always make it, because frankly, anything is possible if you really commit and put your mind to it. People said that we would never be able to fly, yet there are planes soaring through the clouds while you're reading this, people also said that the cure to many deadly diseases and conditions wouldn't exist for a long time, but there is almost a cure for cancer and the hope for cures being found is a reality now! I hope some other people understand these poems like I do...Appreciate this because it is truly amazing! c:
