patience-perseverance

Poems on perseverance by Sri Chinmoy

Perseverance
Never accepts
Defeat.

1

Perseverance
Never accepts
Defeat.

2

Patience and perseverance
Are of supreme importance
On any spiritual path.

3

The mind takes perseverance
As something
Extremely bitter.

4

The heart takes perseverance
As something most essential
To bring down
God’s Compassion-Satisfaction
Into the heart-pocket of the seeker.

5

Perseverance, perseverance,
Perseverance!
You can turn me into
A genius.

6

What you need is patience,
What you need is perseverance
To satisfy God
In every human being.

7

The mind’s obedience
And
The heart’s perseverance
Together can accomplish
Everything they want to.

8

No patience, no perseverance,
The outer success and the inner progress
Will remain a far cry.

9

Perseverance
Eventually shall arrive
At the Golden Shore.

10

His heart of patience
And his life of perseverance
Have at long last granted him
Heaven’s ever-increasing ecstasy-sky.

11

 

Life needs three things:
Effort, perseverance
And patience.

12

Perseverance
Shatters the pride
Of impossibility.

13

Tolerance in the inner world
And perseverance in the outer world
Are two extremely beautiful twins.

Sri Chinmoy (13)
