Self Control

One for the start

three for the finish

for the race

that lies before us

hasn’t been diminished

by the sound of the ocean

by the sound of the train

I know where I stand

I know what I have to gain

this life requires endurance

this life requires cheer

and I gaze up to the sky

knowing you are always near

.

self control


For this series of poems, I am inspired by the “Fruits of the Spirit” found in the Bible. I am only allowing myself one minute for each poem, so its a sort of flash poem challenge.  Hope you enjoy! Please feel free to join along if you need some writing inspiration. Photo by Jordi Zamora on Unsplash.
