If you noticed, my nickname is OysTeR. Wondering why it is so? Please then, let me share with you this poem about The OysTeR. It very much describes a part of me and speaks of a mindset that I believe many should adopt. Enjoy!!!

The OysTeR

There once was an oyster, Whose story I tell,
Who found that some sand, Had got into his shell.

It was only a grain, but it gave him great pain.
For oysters have feelings, Although they’re so plain.

Now, did he berate, the harsh workings of fate
That had brought him, To such a deplorable state?

Did he curse at the government, Cry for election,
And claim that the sea should, Have given him protection?

‘No,’ he said to himself, As he lay on a shell,
Since I cannot remove it, I shall try to improve it.

Now the years have rolled around, As the years always do,
And he came to his ultimate, Destiny stew.

And the small grain of sand, That had bothered him so
Was a beautiful pearl, All richly aglow.

Now the tale has a moral, for isn’t it grand
What an oyster can do, With a morsel of sand?

What couldn’t we do, If we’d only begin
With some of the things, That get under our skin.
I hope you enjoyed that! Hope it gave you just the little bit more inspiration to Persevere on with that which you are striving to achieve. My Mission Statement: “Creating a Difference in the World, One Life At A Time.”
