Has Life Dealt Me A Short Straw? - Poem by Alison Smith

Been dealt some hard knocks
Do I complain to the higher being?
Do I sit and moan how life has dealt me a crappy hand?
Why? What will it achieve?

Dont I also look at what I have achieved because of this?
Dont I look at those who have had it easy and see there pain?
Dont I take my lot and use it to it fullest?
Would you give in?

No I wont sit a moan my hand in life.
I'll stand and take it on the chin.
I will find the strength each time I fall
To stand up again.

Has life dealt me a short straw?
No life has dealt me an adventure.
