The Church Is Not a Bless Me Club .

Your sister gets into drugs or alcohol,
you just smile and go on down the hall,
but, don't you bawl

Your momma is callin' you too much,
just do her such,
but, don't go stall

Your other sister is bossin' you 'round,
you just give her some of your own sound,
but, don't go crawl

Your daddy is a hollerin' at you to
clean a mess up,
you just look at the mess and lighten up,
but, don't do the job bad

Your best friend just moved away,
just go ahead outside and play,
but, don't get all sad

Your spouse refuses to work,
just smile and say "fine i wont work either
we'll be poor, and with you i will lurk,"
but, don't get all mad.

Be tall but,
not small.
Be glad but,
not sad.

Hang on, hang tight
your going to have to ride
your problem some night.

I wrote this to help inspire others and even myself to be strong, because there are times when family members and friends bail out on you, so we have to learn to be strong and have the endurance to be able to hang on and to not give up.

There is nothing to fear in Life it is only to be understood.

I really like the reason and meaning to your poem. Reading it makes me strong thanks for writting this sometimes we need that little reminder to keep us going this was a little reminder that god is good and everthing happens for a reason (:
