I want to quit “quitting”
To the utmost extent To see just “one” thing through to completion For me would be an event

I tend to give up the ghost
When the going gets rough
With only excuses as to
Why my situation is too

“Tough to handle”

For Some of these issues

I say I just don’t have the time
But to tell you the truth
That’s just a


Old line

I keep telling myself
That maybe one day
When I retire
I’ll do what I say

Can’t be done at the moment
Because time’s not
On my side
But that is such a cop out
That derails and derides

My motivation, momentum
Determination and drive
To finish the course
See what’s on…the other side

Of procrastination
Lack of determination
Intimidation and

Wrestling with low self esteem
As my bones and dreams
Turn to

But “TODAY”…as they say
Don’t squander it, abuse it
No YOU have the right

To see your dreams
come to pass
Each endeavor hit the mark
But they will never come to fruition

If you don’t ever START

To focus on the goal, the prize
How you’ll feel when you begin
To Stop it! Quit Quitting!
And see one dream through…To the end!

  1. Wow! This poem strikes a chord within me, Marie Fitts. After years of self doubt, I am SOOO grateful to stand solidly in KNOWING and DECLARING that, like all of God’s children, I DO have the right to realize my dreams.

    You are a gift!

    1. I am agreeing with you in Jesus Name, my sweet friend. It’s been good to have you back on my speed dial too. Looking forward to what God has in store for both of us! Love you, Marie Elaine
