Storming Through

If you’re filled with despair and
thought life is unfair
Never give up
never surrender
Keep your hopes up-
no doubt the answer.

Pessimism is a snare
optimism is rare
Heed the latter and
not the former
Dare to be bold
dare far not near
If you’re not getting there
then try harder

Some life’s roads are smooth
some are rough
Things spin out of control
things mess up
So count your blessings
instead of mishaps
Keep going on
keep moving up

Live life to the fullest
as better days are numbered
Ponder upon what had gone by
but this must be remembered
Grief is half the misery
when it is shared
But happiness when shared
is doubled and reciprocated

Treat life not a cul-de-sac
but a turn-around
Each misfortune is so designed
for greater plans
Failure paves the roadway and
spells no hindrance
Ride your way to success
your vehicle is perseverance

We’ve come to worse
we thought it a curse
Digress from thinking you’re doomed
you can’t be serious
If things get worst
it’s kind of precarious
Just come home to the ONE
who carried your cross

If you long for acceptance
love and peace
Never think twice
go get on your knees
Pray for kindness
compassion and forgiveness
Take the lead and
do what pleases

So here’s the key
adversity is not an adversary
Success and failure
always work in harmony
To sear us through fire and
crown us with glory
To bring out the best
that we can ever be!
