Life - What Is It That You Don't Want To Hear? - Poem by Paul Warren

What is it that you don't want to hear?
That you failed at something that you hold dear
Perhaps it's a job that you don't want to do
Or the relationship you treasure is now all through
Maybe it's something about your health
Will you be poor as something has affected your wealth

So maybe it's happened and you're not feeling great
And the tendency to be hard on yourself in the wake
But what I have found for us all
Is to move on and don't give in to the fall
A wise person once told me life isn't a level plain
It's a climb up a mountain with rests once and while to proclaim.
