Walking Tall

Life is a series of hills and valleys,ups and downs,good times and not so great ,but however life is for you today ,this poem by Patience Strong might lighten your heart on this journey of life!

Walking Tall

Yesterday’s steps you can’t retrace,by slowing down or quickening pace,

changing course,or turning back-You still will be on the same old track.

The only change worthwhile you’ll find,will be a change of heart

and mind-leading and directing you-on towards that lovely view.

Keep to the rules and bear your load,along the rough and rutted road,

on that wayside seat awhile-gathering strength for the second mile.

Keeping an eye on that distant height,that draws you on by day and night

-walking tall and walking straight-the better world to recreate.

-Patience Strong

Many of her poetry books are out of print but you can still get some good used copies at https://www.amazon.co.uk
