Remember This - Poem by Curtisj Johnson

By Curtis Johnson

There are some things I have come to believe.
Believe me when I say, I am not deceived.
Sometimes the good die young, and never receive.
Unfairness exists, and persists, though ill conceived.

Sometimes everybody gets pushed around, or cheated.
Never sink in the sand, or give up when you’re mistreated.
There is never a reason to remain forever defeated.
Be strong and fight against evils, before they are repeated.
It’s okay to be highly noticed, but better to be needed.

If you decide to reach for the brightest and highest star;
Remember to love and support those not very far.

A good education might bring you the best credit card.
But the best education will always be it’s own reward.

Some are fortunate with opportunities they simply refuse.
Too many of us are unfortunately denied and abused.

You do not have to feel like a sadly stricken victim.
Just have faith, look up, and stand up like a victor!
