Perseverance

Even when locked in a box

The human spirit lives

Looking for the crack

That lets the light in

If that crack is big enough

To reveal the tree outside

The human spirit hangs

Onto a branch

Knowing it is as free

As the mind will take it

And soon the girl

Still locked in that box

Is also running through the field

Dogwoods and daffodils

So beautiful

The memory is so easy

It brings her for a moment

Smiling next to God.

      Thank yo!. I was reading about Anne Frank yesterday. That she used to go to the attic and look up at a tree outside and know that as long as that beauty existed she might be ok. Then after that here in the US three women were found after being kidnapped for a decade or so. Amazing how strong the human spirit is. Love, me
