Determination

Determination

Do not draw the gate on this life,
standing firm still in the winds
of change, lives passing by, unknowing.

Pride and determination build
inner strength, the scars of time
the sign of their healing.

The image above is by Sue Vincent, from Tenacity #midnighthaiku at Daily Echo.
Both the haiga and her prose inspired this poem.
