Hey there everybodypeeps.
It’s my Day Thirty entry (the final one, sadly!) of NanoPoblano AKA National Blog Posting Month (but with an original rocking bunch of spicy peppery band members known as Cheer Peppers) and I’m back with another video to finish this epic series off with a bang.
Check out the Facebook Live performance of my latest poem.
Since this is my final poem for the month, I wanted to finish on an epic high note and have crafted an inspirational poem for you all.
Also, since I such a hero and legend in my own spare time, here are some other alternative prompts to help you stoke your poetic fires until the sparks start flying:-
And finally here is my final poem of the month in written form, thank you all for reading and don’t forget to check out all of the previous entries in the month if you have not already seen them yet 🙂

“Fearing The Wilderness No More” by David Ellis
No matter what terrible things you are going through
Remember not the words of your enemies, only those of your friends
Your successes start no matter how dark a situation is
By finding positive things to light your way through negative environments
The key to dealing with overwhelming odds
Is to not fear the wilderness when you take your first steps
Our lives are not meant to be lived in silence with no freedom of expression
The truth is there are those who will attack you with malice because of your compassion
Their jealousy and hatred should be ignored for what it is, an unnecessary distraction
If they won’t change, remove their negative influence from your life without hesitation
Each act of kindness we offer others create ripples that are timeless and priceless
It’s the one thing that we can control, the sky is the limit, no need to embrace compromises
When the lives of our very children are at stake, we must bring an end to conflicts
Our patience and resilience will be tested but we must fight to give them brighter futures
Contentment comes from living each moment as a means to do our utmost best in the present
Use everything you are given, be eternally grateful for what you have got
Let your actions define you in ways that words cannot
Circumstances reveal our true natures and characters
You were born to accomplish beautiful things and deserve happiness
The glory in our stories only really makes sense, if throughout our lives we are there for each other
Are you still there? And you still want more? Hurrah! How about the last batch of posts consisting of Day Thirty entries by talented ladies and gentlemen who have participated in the Pepper challenge throughout the month of November 🙂
