Think of all those you admire
make a list of those who inspire
then contemplate their qualities
their ability to achieve lights our fire

It could be someone historical
or relatives we truly respect
a neighbour or anyone with affect
who radiates strong determination

With a force of character and nerve
those who embrace life with real verve
they empower us to be better people
for we all have room to improve

We continue to grow until we die
Slow your busy mind, give it a try
Pursue your passion in your own fashion
Live right now, dig deep and find how

For those with moxie set an example
of how to achieve meaning and ample
skills to improve our lives and others
or fully recover from our afflictions

Daily Prompt: Moxie


  1. Excellent poem and advice, Kate!
    Yes, listing those who have moxie and encourage us, give us a verbal push in the right direction, inspire us, etc., is a wonderful idea and gets our minds on the positive…reminds us to be grateful! 🙂
    You are on my list, Kate! You are a day-brightener every day! Thank you! 🙂
    HUGS!!! 🙂

  2. This is great! I’ll take a break from whining about the faults of others, and remind myself how many inspiring people I know. Your name will be somewhere around the top of my list, because that’s what you are… inspiring 🙂
    I’m so happy to be part of the WP community 🙂
