When That Day Comes

when that day comes

The fight continues, day in and day out. Every day feels like an eternity. But know that each day of struggle brings you that much closer to victory. And that victory may not be today, and it may not be tomorrow. But when that day comes, be ready, be humble, and be accepting. You are the only one who knows how hard you have fought to be where you are.

In the dirt between the tracks on the sidewalk,  

yields a rose who has toiled longer and harder than his brothers.  

In an effort just to peek through the cracks,  

he looks out of place against the gray background –  

but shows signs of beauty that has rarely been seen.  

So often overlooked because no one is looking,  

for such is beauty in an unexpected place.  

So often ignored without noticing the splendor  

which exists right beneath their feet.  


His years of pain and suffering have led him to this.  

Too hard he has fought –  

yielding to failure is inconceivable now.  


Shining brightly in the sun, he remains overlooked.  

But he knows when that day comes – and that day will come,  

he will be ready – standing tall – a beacon of resilience,  

basking in the warmth of his well-deserved success.
