It is Colleen’s turn this week to give us the prompt word for her and Ronovan’s Writer’s Quote on Wednesday Challenge. She has come up with ‘faith’ and to me, this quote sums it up perfectly
The reason birds can fly and we can’t is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.
― J.M. Barrie
Have you ever wanted something
That you thought was out of reach?
Perhaps getting a book published
Or a secret dream to teach?
Maybe you’ve failed your driving test
Oh, So many times
Or you’re struggling with your poetry
As you just can’t find the rhymes.
You finally went back to school
To learn a brand new trade
But already you are worrying
Whether you will make the grade
Don’t ever give up trying
You must always have some hope
You know that you can do things
That you thought way beyond your scope
Have faith in your ability
And don’t be afraid to try
You never know, you may find your wings
And soar way up in the sky
Ahh. Makes me smile.Good one for the challenge: faith. 🙂 ❤ ❤
Thanks Tess. I am glad you enjoyed it. It is so easy just to give up sometimes 🙂
Especially when you’re worn out!

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I am Judy, in my (very) early fifties and decided that life definitely gets more interesting as it goes on! I am a wife and a mum and have just finished University as a Registered Nurse, after having worked as an Associate Practitioner in the NHS. I am also a poet and the author of my debut book, 'Rhymes of the Times.' I love to laugh, and I love rhyming words too, so I joined the two together, and my book was born. I am currently working on another book in the series also. I am a prolific blogger and enjoy writing funny stories, anecdotes, and anything really that takes my fancy.
