Get The Monkey Off Your Back - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

Get the monkey off your back,
But be kind to an ape;
Though it takes the lice away,
It might bite your nape.

In the night the tormentor
Turns into worst nightmare;
Instead of dreaming of success,
You feel like in the lion's lair.

The wounds are created
By the hassle haunting you;
Let losses turn into gains,
And take you out of the blue.

Let successive failures
Become a shining victory;
Let triumph be like the waves
That come rolling across the sea.

Let your broken heart heal,
Let your faith fill its crack;
Never be afraid of obstacle,
Get the monkey off your back.
