It Is What It Is - Poem by Nadezhda Tolmacheva

Let me tell you something you already know
The world ain't always sunshine and rainbows
Its a very mean and nasty place that will beat you to your knees and keep you
there permanently if you let it.
You, me, or nobody is going to hit you as hard as life.
But its not how hard it hits you its how hard you let it hit you and keep moving
How much you are willing to take and keep moving straight forward.
That is how you win in life.
Now if you know how much you are worth, go out and get exactly what you are
Yet you have to be willing to take the hit and not blame, him, her, or anyone
else, because you arr not where you want to be. Only cowards do that, and
you are much better than that, and you, yourself know it.
