Inspiration – a Poem


I think it would be inspiring to visit a castle like this!

I think it would be inspiring to visit a castle like this!


Inspiration like wisdom

is sometimes fleeting

you have to give it all you’ve got

to not lose what you’ve been given


Inspiration is like a friendly spirit

who aims to bless people

if they will but take notice of her

and let her help them beautify their world


Who can beautify their world?

Everyone whom Inspiration visits

those who are considerate of others

those who listen to guidance from above


Taking the high road takes courage

but it is better than taking the easy road

the lower road, one that leads to a cliff

Inspiration tends to live on the high road


Do not scoff at Inspiration

or tell her to go away

if spurned or ignored often enough

she will do just that

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, launched. Thank you for visiting!
