Grit: Two Haikus

Insurmountable,

Formidable obstacles

Are all in the mind.

—-

Don’t keep looking up

Look straight ahead and walk on

You’ll get there in time.

Not Today

Sunset in Jimei

The bottle will remain unopened.

That pack of cigarettes will stay unsmoked.

Those cheesecakes calling me as I walk past the bakery will be ignored.

And the backups won’t be hearing from me anytime soon.

For as long as there’s a teeny bit of will left in me…

You’re not winning again.

Not today.

——

Be strong. You are loved. ♥️
