Take Charge



A jaundiced spirit

Lingered with us a while

Camouflaged our hindrance

Etched life in hardened soil

Bruised our intellectual toil

Then unfolded a radiant smile

Praised strong and willful belief

A passel of concordant relief


  “You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.”― Jim Rohn

    I literally sighed in relief at the end of the poem. I like the closure.
