Don't Give Up!
" Nature knows your value; she sees your potential.
You may not understand everything, which is essential,
But hold your head up high, fill heart with virtues,
God is in control, have faith, search not for clues!
He/She has a great plan, know the purpose for your life.
all your dreams are not your goals, time unfolds life,
just go on, walk on, where there is path, crawl, swim,
Keep flower of hope ever fresh in heart, keep mind trim.
God's way is better and higher and smother than our way,
it is your love, kindness, virtues, hope and faith will pay,
even when every path ends, there shines the inner light,
something within you fills with peace, useless is your fight.
whoever may reject you, reject not the self, it always accepts you,
God stands with you, with arms open wide, never allow you slide,
always confirms your value. give up fear, desires envy and pride,
You are prized possession, no matter you wear rags or remain naked.
No matter what you go through in life, at times you slip, feel shame,
disappointments you suffer, your value in always remains the same;
You will always be the apple of God's eye, lovely child, clean you up
will never give up on you, love and like yourself; so don't give up!
