“I would define, in brief, the poetry of words as the rhythmical creation of Beauty.” Edgar Allan Poe

Today I am going to share a Poem which appears in Sparkle and hope you enjoy the Reflection.
Circle – State of Mind (Excerpt #New Release Sparkle)
“If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don’t
If you like to win, but think you can’t,
It is almost certain you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, your lost
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow’s will –
It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are,
You’ve got to think high to rise,
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN.”
