Overcoming Obstacles Poem

Courage sometimes is the quietest voice
That roars loudest from within,
Making faith a distinctive choice
And compelling motivation to try again.

When obstacles invariably come your way,
Into every direction that you have turned,
A thousand misery comes in a friendlier display
To take away the strength that you have gained.

Faith stands strong like a colossal wall of courage,
Ready to do the things that you could not do.
Bold in confidence with a conquering message,
Making difficult boundaries appeared new.

You can go on overcoming obstacles,
Which at first looked almost impossible,
Success is not worth having if there are no mistakes,
There is an ability that lies beyond the solar pole.
