The Virtue of Never Giving Up

Ink splatters

Expelled from the

Force of the Author’s Might.

 

Paper tears

Punctured from the

Pressure of the Author’s Mind.

 

Lead fractures

Cracked as it is

Compelled by the Author’s Hand.

 

She will not stop.

She cannot stop

Until the job is done.

 

The Seven Virtues were created to combat each of the Seven Deadly Sins. These Seven Virtues first appeared tied together in an epic poem titled Pschomachia, written by Aurelius Clemens Prudentius, a Christian governor of the 400s AD. To battle Slothfulness, there is Perseverance (or Diligence).

Perseverance or Diligence can be seen as refusing to back down or to give up even in difficult times, but to continue on until the job or task is complete.

Happy Writing Everyone!
