Overcome Adversity


Reaching for the sky
Grabing my dreams
Chasing my fears
Trying to understand
Why one must fear
Overcoming obstacles
Achieving adversity
I will still love
Even when the ones i love hurt me
Sometimes i wonder why
I have a heart this big
It's like everytime
When i show it
This giant crushes this lil kid
But why back down
Because of the size
Stand and fight
Never under estimate
One's size
For pride can overcome adversity
You rather put me down
Than to admit that you heart me
I dont understand selfish pride
Only care for yourself
And no one else's life
But one day you will learn
That it's not the size of the person
It's the size of the stuff the person has taken
The word to the wise
Never let the size be mistaken

Poem of the Day

poet Edward Thomas

Like the touch of rain she was
On a man's flesh and hair and eyes
When the joy of walking thus
Has taken him by surprise:

With the love of the storm he burns,
