Life's Challenge - Poem by Vijaiya Ramkissoon

Life’s a challenge but its something we must face,
It’s sometimes painful but this we must embrace
For in every obstacle lies a golden opportunity
To an answer, an untold beauty….

Open your eyes, your heart and your mind,
And behind every problem, a solution you will find.
Pain, misery, heartaches, will come to an end,
With an unattached mind, without doubt you’ll fend.

Place your victory, defeats, joys and sorrow at the feet of God,
And He’ll provide you with the courage to move forward.
Accept what you can’t change, understand and learn,
With every experience you undergo, wisdom you will earn.

But while living in this temporary world,
Take a moment and remember your ultimate goal.
Never forget your purpose here on earth,
The real reason for which you were given this human birth..

Bless! !
