Sometimes!

I would be true, for there are those who
      trust me;
I would be pure, for there are those who
     care;
I would be strong, for there is much to
     suffer;
I would be brave, for there is much to
     dare.
     Howard Arnold Walter


Sometimes you just have to stand back


And wait for others to show the way.

  1. Yep, I sooo agree with you! But my husband thinks I should be more assertive and daring. :))

  2. Not everyone is willing to follow the crowd. Not every waterbird is excited to jump into ice water. Thanks for the smile.

  3. I need to do some standing back and I know it!!! :) And, oh, how many, many times I have sung that song you quoted, "I Would Be True". A Sunday staple of my childhood. Do you know the song? I think I'm going to calligraphy it. Remind me to do it and I will send you a copy.

    Enjoyed the poem. It has a quiet strength to it...

  6. You know, this is a very profound post of yours... I watched as a large flock flew over the house... and thought of how tiring it must be for them...but then the formation just kept changing and changing and changing... and I realized that they all take turns leading, to let others rest... :)
