Determination


DETERMINATION

The fence line

The tree trunk

Even the horizons

Mattered to Milly

Each morning she rose

Five minutes to stand

Ten to the bathroom

Pain written on face

She had made it

The kitchen stood

As it did the day before

Standing firm, tall, strong

The goal within Milly’s heart

Just as the fence line

The tree trunk

The horizons

Determination rose from within

Milly would make it one more day.
