Even A Worm Will Turn
My mother would tell me that
it's "better to light a candle
than to curse the darkness."
But what if you haven't got a
candle or something to light it with?
What then? Curse it or accept it?
You learn to fight or you learn
to accept what you can't affect.
You learn to build walls to protect yourself.
Or you learn to tear down the walls
of your limitations. Your greatest
challenges don't come from life,
they come from yourself and next other
people, so be wary, pay attention,
or people and situations will
drag you back into the bucket of
crabs as you try to crawl up and out.
Even a worm will turn.
