There Is Beauty In The Struggle - Poem by JAMES T. ADAIR

There is beauty in the struggle
Don't let anyone tell you otherwise
I didn't see it in myself
But I've seen it in other's eyes

People brave but good in heart
People who try and do their part
even when things are broken apart
They hope and pray for a another start

They deserve another chance
Unfair sometimes their circumstance
That leads to sadness, lonliness and humbled stance
But dream they do of true romance

There is beauty in the struggle
Don't let anyone tell you otherwise
I didn't see it in myself
But I've seen it in other's eyes

The struggle is painful to be in
It is something fought alone wiithin
memories of where we've been
But to dream of love, is not a sin

Someday struggles will be through
Someone will see the heart inside of you
You'll love them and they'll love you true
Then angels will come into view

Soon greater meaning will come from blue
And all the questions you wondered why
The answers will all come by and by
And happiness will replace your cry

There is beauty in the struggle
It will all somehow shine through
When another heart feels touched by you
All your dreams may still come true

Happiness will rule and you'll smile again
In equal measure to your pain
All your hopes have not been in vain
Rainbows come after the rain

    WOW! This is the first poem that I realize, what a wisdom has this poet. Not that I regard the self smarter, on the contrary! But to write in this way with such words, much experience in age is needed. Truly, I can learn so much from this impressive poem. The smallest things said about the small subjects, there is really much increasing age needed and I am eager to learn this. Thank you for sharing wisdom and insight here, James! A 10. (Report)Reply
