A Brave One

He has not had an easy life of late
He has battled his demons of despair
Just one of those who has known hard times
And his type of person not rare.

And yet he hangs in there and keeps on battling
And not all hope of success from him gone
A brave one he is not a quitter
And he will keep on keeping on.

He is one with a sense of humour
Though financialy embarrassed he doesn't find it hard to smile
He says life is a hard old battle
But the battle is worthwhile.

He has not known an easy time of late
But to despair he will not give in
He finds life such a very hard battle
A battle he is determined to win.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
