The Last Sad Loss And Fall - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

Being first in the race is so hard,
Frazzle may make you stumble;
If you're left alone at the tail end,
LAST means Learn About Standing Tall.

If you cry in distress and sorrow,
Lonely and torn and due for repair;
Dry the tears in your eyes, for
SAD signifies Smile Away Despair.

When triumph seems so elusive,
Beat defeat to be fearless;
Little did you know that
LOSS means Lean On Sweet Success.

When highs turn into lows,
Grounded down below the strife;
You'll find in your heart that
FALL stands for Fly Aiming Long Life.

Life is not always a walk in the park,
Before you rise reaching the glorious goal,
Seek God's help first for you to endure
The last sad loss and fall.
