Hold On

Blazer; Pants: Zara, Vest: Camaieu, Shoes: Dorothy Perkins, Jewelry: Various

I've been collecting poems since I was little. It's a hobby passed on to me by my dad. As I was sitting wondering what to write about, I realized I wanted to talk about holding on. And I remembered this poem I'd gotten from my dad's poetry collection. I don't know who the author is, but it's lovely.

Hold on though it seems that there is nothing left for you. 

Hold on in the darkness,till the sun comes breaking through. 
Hold on to your courage in the chaos of your grief, 
Hold on, bravely, blindly, to your faith, and belief. 
Let go now,and you may drift, tossed by the waves of chance,
Hurled into strange waters by the storms of circumstance. 
The sea of life is deep, 'tis only fools who venture out, 
At the mercy of the winds, upon the rocks of doubt. 
Though it seems that hope has fled and every joy has gone, 
Listen to the Voice within that says to you HOLD ON!

On a style note, these beads take this drab corporate look to kitschy. And I so adore these blue pumps with their suede cut-out detail and chunky heel. They really are so comfortable! Or I'd never attempt something like what I did in the last photo. The things I do for this blog! ;)
Thanks for stopping by! xxx
