Life - Poem by Helen A. Nagy

What is life?
Just along long strife
Gloom and happiness
Both along long stress
When you are happy
you are glad
When you are gloomy
you are sad
People may be cruel
and mean
They can’t be as bad
as they seem.
So even if they
laugh and shout
There is no cause
for you to put
Put up your head
and be a man
Find out where
in life you stand
