Encouraged

Poem By Paul Laurence Dunbar

Because you love me I have much achieved,
Had you despised me then I must have failed,
But since I knew you trusted and believed,
I could not disappoint you and so prevailed.

I love this and it makes me think of my parents ❤️❤️
Very extraordinary stanza, It is rare to find such a stanza in English language. Adorable, that I can say.
