! Realities We Live With


Prepare yourself for the real world
And expect life to be rough around the edges
But believe in the power of courage and faith
And see where experience can take you
As there is always a chance to win

Life is an internal struggle
That we all face with long shadow
And anxious and weary expression
So don't put limitations on yourself
Just move forward and find your space

And as you move along in life
Learn to hold on to familiar things
And let the magical light of peace
Creep through the narrow window
To launch a new life with happy hours

For this is life where we live with realities
Some bitter, some sweet, some painful, some treat
And with these tender memories we begin our journey
And in some subtle ways we recollect memories
And look for the magical answer to solve it all

So prepare yourself for the real world
And expect life to be rough around the edges
Just discover the control button of life
And display courage while standing on the grid lines
And sort everything that comes in your life's way

And believe in the power of courage and faith
And see where experience can take you
As there is always a chance to win
Where you can recollect your memories
And launch a new life with happy hours.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
