Words To Live By - Poem by Robert Peacock

When facing times
Of transformation
Keep your head held high
Without reservation

For Life is long
And sometimes gets rough
So there’ll be times
When you must get tough

But to find the secrets
That make life great
You must never burden
Your heart with hate

Topic(s) of this poem: fear, hatred, prejudice, racism

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Free yourself and then try to help free others.
