As school kids, we matched in tandem to our classes from assembly singing or should I say yelling a song:
Determination is our motto, Determination, Determination!
Repetitively and in staccato voices too!
No doubt we had no idea what exactly we were singing about. We just SANG happily 🙂
Now as I sit here, in an attempt to drum reluctant and difficult words into a story that does not want to be told, the word Determination echoes in my mind and then…it becomes crystal clear beyond literal levels that:
Is that mental animation
that pushes their bands of resistance
From mundane levels of coexistence
With consistent persistence
To livelier edges of existence
And better culmination
Of one’s life’s narration
Let me now sing in a hush tone: determination, is my motto, determination, determination 😉
Have a blessed day.
