A Challenge

Everyday is a challenge,
If you could spare a prayer,
In a minute of silence,
If you can give your wisdom,
To the empty pail in queue,



Every minute is a challenge,
If you could sit around

and watch the flower bloom,
A child grows to the fullest of its dream,
Lead the life of his world.


Every minute is a challenge,



If you could sit beside the slow learners,

Talk to him and find the best in him,
Encourage him his part in this world,
To live life in his fullest.


Every hour is a challenge,
To radiate joy into your own,
To enjoy the simplest thing,
That happiness brings,
Until challenges for us will ring.

    this poem mam is true, no one can complain if it is true or not because it is true. every time you are alive it is a challenge, i like this because it reminds me that i am strong because i survive the challenge because i am still alive.

    Challenge when firmly faced, can be made to bow down. Well done, Susan.

    And a challenge that should be taken...and accepted...irrespective of the consequences...that's truly challenging...
    Insightful write, Susan.
    Cheers.
