The Bitter Pill

entry picture

Hand me the bitter pill, 
I’ll take my truth unsweetened, 
My shoulders broad, my back is strong, 
My spirit will remain unbeaten, 
And though my road is long, 
And my time upon it fleeting, 
I’ll face the things that I got wrong, 
With courage whilst my heart’s still beating.

Thanks Keith, glad you liked it, and yes it's all about pushing on and pushing through, but with as much honesty and honour as we can.

A rhyme which exudes perseverance. A good piece of writing and thank you for it
