Stubbornness – villanelle

Anthony J. D’Angelo:
Never let your persistence and passion turn into stubbornness and ignorance.

Stubbornness can be a trait that makes us strong
It can keep us going or it can be our downfall
Fight for something, not just fight over it.

Too many times we lose sight of what is best
Not only for ourself but for those cared about
Stubbornness can be a trait that makes us strong.

When we can’t remember the important things
We end up fighting the dreams that made us smile
Fight for something, not just fight over it.

We are given only so many chances in our life
To figure out what it is that can make us happy
Stubbornness can be a trait that makes us strong.

When we let someone else come between us and our dream
We end up conflicted and in the end we probably lose
Fight for something, not just fight over it.

If you can’t change the things that are obstacles
You won’t take hold of the hand that is offered
Stubbornness can be a trait that makes us strong
Fight for something, not just fight over it.
