Wonder and amazement
In the eyes of those who laugh
Wisdom and tranquility
In the heart of those who share

Despair and frustration
In the mind that ceases to grow
Weariness and burden
In the body of one who ceases to care

The mind and the body are together
In the battle to survive
Trust in them and what they serve
In that trust… you will thrive

Believe in Yourself

Luisa Doraz

    • I feel bad because I will be placing the beautiful honor under my “Special Gifts” page. Is that OK with you? I do not want to upset the great theme you have established with all of the other bloggers. πŸ™‚

  6. Wonderful msg and very inspiring write. Well penned.

  7. Please, I plead, please
    let our minds learn to grow
    We are often living
    in a mind filled with snow
    Give us a chance to crawl
    through the struggles of life
    Allow us to reach, to dream
    allow us to survive
    We are in a midst of a person
    who sees life like you
    It may take us some time
    to secure your visionary truth
