Against all odds..

Ah, nothing feels as satisfying,
like after a fall, return to flying;
To take that whisper of no hope,
and still walk on that tightrope;
If I said I’ve no fear, I’d be lying.

Against all odds, I have fought,
with all my passion, I’ve sought;
Today, as I am where I did aim,
I’m thankful I’m still the same;
But with time, I’ve grown a lot.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. Well Hello Again Leo, Been awhile i know. Good to see you back in the flow. This poem is great, a complex rhyme. Good flow throughout, a charming chime. As we all must learn as we age I must be off to another's page.Shoeless

  2. Against all odds I like the title and the poem gives inspiration to the fact thru all our endeavors we can still beat the odds. We always fear the outcome but we just let the journey take us where we need to be we certainly will overcome our obstacles.
