Bulldogs don't let go of what they've got.
Enduring love requires tenacity,
Requires strength and dogged loyalty.
No bulldog latches on to what is not.
All I asked of life was what I had.
Reality was rhapsody enough.
Days of tense, hard labor might be tough;
Well worth it to come home and be called Dad.
"Accept" bears no resemblance to "submit."
Yielding is no match for an embrace.
Maybe life is hard, but one can place
A chair outside the door and simply sit,
Not needing more to be consumed by grace.
