No Matter What

“Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.” – Winston Churchill

No Matter What

No matter the pain,

No matter the hurt,

No matter the setback,

No matter the obstacle,

No matter the swelling,

No matter the failure,

No matter the bump,

No matter the bruise,

No matter the tears,

No matter the atrophy,

No matter the struggle,

No matter the aching,

No matter the fear,

No matter the diagnosis,

No matter the players,

No matter the game,

No matter the haters,

No matter the shame,

I will.

Overcome.

    Reminded me of a few lines from the poem ‘Invictus’:

    “It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate:
    I am the captain of my soul.”

    Very inspiring. Beautiful post!

    YES! “I will overcome.” No excuses. No whining. No theatrics. No drama or tears or groveling or complaining… Just a simple, unalterable, unbreakable resolve. “I will overcome.”

    I inevitably end up skipping the “no matter the…” but that makes it a versatile poem. Interesting…
